Still no computer update. The status is "in production". Slow asses. I did not make it that complicated. Bunch of butt nuts. I had to call about a problem they had with my DELL preferred account and the first guy I spoke with was so rude that I made it my mission that day to make sure someone in management knew about it. The phone system is not user friendly. And I am suspicious that my calls were being taken over seas (hmmm.....outsourcing perhaps?).

Anywho, after about 2 hours (no, I never give up) - complaint (and complements for the polite employees) was taken by a manager (or at least that is what I am told). For your future reference, if someone is rude to you - you are supposed to ask for an employee number. I got a name (hopefully he did not give me another employee's name because he was a real jackass and I told him so) and passed that along.

When I was fatter, I am not sure I would have stood up for myself so fast and let him have it the way I did. My mother would be proud (she can be a real bitch is you piss her off).

So to the news. Finally - I am overweight! YAHOO!!!!!!! Today's weigh-in brought me down on the BMI scale. I weighed in at 207.5. That is a 4.5 pound loss since last Friday (about time after a one pound gain and a week staying the same) and a total loss of 81 pounds.

I am dying to tell best bud. She will be over later. I want to tell someone in person so I can see the look on their face. I had to tell mom over the phone and hubby in a text message.

Today we had a different instructor for turbo kickboxing. She did a different round too. I was so sweaty I had to change all of my clothes before my training session. Normally I get pretty sweaty but today I looked like I stood in the shower with my clothes on. I wore it with pride but it was so sweaty that my shirt was stretching out. GROSS!!

I am working on a special post for next week. I plan on posting it Tuesday sometime. Hope you all have BIG losses and a great weekend!

Great job on the loss! I started out at 288, right where you started out! Seeing how far you have come is inspiring. About the customer service reps that you talked to, way to ask for a supervisor! I work in a call center myself and since you are someone who will ask to speak to a supervisor, don't forget to compliment the ones that give you great customer service. That doesn't happen nearly as often as the complaints are passed on but it's really appreciated and let's the good employees know they're doing a good job! :)
