10 Honest Tidbits

I've been tagged on one of the blogs I read, Adventures of Gastric Girl to do this little number...
For this one, the rules are simple - list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep! Then tag 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap Award.
So here goes...

10 Honest Things about Me

1) I still have 80 something pounds to lose, but I'm not sure if I'll get there. My focus has changed, and I'm alright with it - but I'm still working on getting healthy. If I lose more weight before having a baby - bonus... if not - I'll work on it afterwards. I struggle with feeling like a weight loss surgery failure because I haven't lost more weight.
2) I wish that I could learn to love working out as much as I love other things. I've heard that it happens, but I'm waiting for the day when I'd rather get on the treadmill than write a blog post.
3) I enjoy spending time with the people I love, but also enjoy down time to recharge and regroup from time to time.
4) I am not fulfilled by my job. I am good at what I do, but I don't love it. I make great money doing it, but sometimes that just isn't enough. I would love to be a teacher or work with children - that would be where I could be passionate about what I do.
5) I am extremely shy, but at the same time - am not afraid for people to know everything there is to know about me. My life is an open book and I don't mind people knowing all the details. I've never been shy about people knowing that I've had weight loss surgery - or really any other major thing happening in my life.
6) I love my husband more than life itself - and I would do anything to make his life better. No matter what it takes... especially give him children to make that life richer and fuller.
7) I never knew the true meaning of people feeling cold before my surgery - seriously when people say that - it is a miserable thing. I always thought that they were just complaining, but it IS just as miserable as being hot.
8) I want to be the best at anything I do, but am coming to the realization that I can't. So now I just have to be happy with what I can do, and let the rest go.
9) I am about as conservative as they come in all aspects of my life - clothes, politics,
spirituality... ect. Unpopular at times, but I stand up for what I believe in.
10) I don't fit in at my new office, and sometimes that is hard. I'm used to having some close allies around me and friends that I can talk to at work, but I don't have that here. I'm interested to learn what God has in store for me in this season of my career.
