Back to the battlefront!

So today for the first time in I'm not sure how long I weighed in and I worked out. 30 minutes on the elliptical and a new starting weight of 230 lbs. Not my lowest in the past few years of 224, but not my highest either so I'll take it. Over the past year I've lost more than few lbs and kept most of it off, but I am still no where near my goal weight and I lost the weight by either working out or dieting, but never both. So, today I start doing both!
I have my physical next week on the 19th with my primary and I know since my bmi is over 30 that I am required (I look at it more like a benefit so I say qualify) to participate in one of their weight loss programs. They pay for either weight watchers or they offer a pedometer. I do not know if the pedometer will register the elliptical so I am skeptical about that, and I know weight watchers will help with the dieting which tends to be my weakness. Does anyone out there know about pedometers and ellipticals? Anyone participate in the wellness program offered by BlueCareNetwork (I'm in Michigan) that has the pedometer program where you log your results online daily? Does it work with ellipticals? I am just full of fun questions today....
On a positive note (aside from the renewed commitment) I have an amazing man in my life who would support me regardless of my decision and I am crazy about. On another positive note I was privileged enough to see Kid Rock perform this weekend & it was AMAZING!
On a negative note one of my daughters best friends whom calls me mom is mad at my daughter and from what I hear me too. I feel a closeness to this girl because she reminds me of myself at her age and our birthdays are a day apart (this week too)...I'm sad, because I really care about this girl and I feel hurt by her behavior. I am also bummed because my daughter is going to need surgery coming up and she needs all the friends and support she can get.
Mixed emotions this week as my birthday approaches and I have not heard about the job I applied for and I have money concerns...it is depressing me which makes me feel more tired than I really am which concerns me about my thyroid. Can't be this tired and work 3rd shift..... hopefully I will snap out of it soon.
