So I just came back to the doctor's office, for my oh so lovely "yearly exam" and when the doctor asked me "do you have any concerns christie" I replied, "well yes, it seems when the nurse weighed me on the way in I am 20 lbs. heavier then I've ever been in my life, I just turned 29, is this what I look forward to in my thirties". Of course she laughed, assured me that losing the 20 would be so simple and that my body doesn't want to carry that weight It's not that, my eyes don't want to see that weight anymore and my jeans are screaming at me, recently I feel like a stuffed sausage. She ended the visit with " well let's have some blood work done to make sure there's no issue with the sudden weight gain"  i though in my head... will the blood work show the baskin robbins I had last night? Oh the last year of my twenties.... this is the year you start to look back and think is there anything else I need to accomplish before I reach my thirties so I'm not looking over my shoulder next year thinking, why haven't I done such and such before I turned 30.  Let's see....1) graduated college 2) got married 3) moved to the other side of the country 4) got divorced 5) had a child 4) tried a few different career paths 5) got into law school and deferred 6) helped start a company 7) hate my job ( a pre-requisite for adulthood I think ) 8) done some moderate traveling.....I seem to have accomplished quite a bit and yet I feel like I'm where I was 10 years ago, just a hell of a lot more bitter and worn around the edges....this last year of my twenties I'm going to try to figure out what it is that I have to do to feel like I've "gotten there" whatever that means....
