Thanks Monica!

It was a one time thing, but not letting it stop me. It helped me get motivated and that was the best reason for me to join the challenge.

Hello-Today I am going to be home with my DH and DS. They are not feeling well. I am hoping to get some exercise in because I am back to not sleeping well again. Even with the walking home and walking to work. I am putting in around 5 miles a day plus what I do during lunch. I try to get out every day to get some more walking in. I weighed this morning and I am down .2 lbs from last Wednesday. Nothing stellar, but I will take it as long as it keeps going down. Then next Wednesday I measure again. That is where I get really excited. I am hoping to drop another size

Strong is the new sexy as Lexi says

yup, every ounce counts! You were very, very close so definitely should be proud of yourself. Like you said, it got you started and look at you now, a walking wonder woman!! Hope hubby and son feel better.

Thanks everybody! I am nearly in tears writing this. I cannot believe where I was a few months ago.

Jayce-My dream job is in sales/software related. There are so many software companies in Austin TX. This one I think is the best. I love the culture and several of my past colleagues work at VMware. They love it! I know I will too

They have an onsite gym!! So you better believe I'll be making some big transformations there. This job also comes with travel, stock, nice income, etc...I couldn't be happier!

Good morning!!

Hi Monica! I start on Tuesday after our holiday weekend. I'm nervous and excited like how I feel when my husband walks into the room after a shower, freshly shaved, and ready to rock! Lol!! I married a musician/rocker boy

So, today I didn't walk to work so I could take the car. I packed up everything. Not that I have a lot. I travel light and have never been one to bring plants and stuff from home. I just have three folders with paperwork and some hard candy. That's really all I have here. People have been stopping by telling me how much they will miss me and thanking me for everything that I've done. It's bittersweet...I will miss these folks

On the brighter side of things I have not had my frappe yet...decided I didn't really want it and opted for two delicious breakfast tacos this morning. So much more enjoyable I think. I also had a nice bottle of wine last night. Tonight DH and i are going to a show. My friend plays in a band called sounds under radio. He also works at the company I am going to start next week. We may have some cocktails...I am in the mood to celebrate. Will reign myself in this weekend and get back on track

Thanks Deb!! I'm pinching myself to make sure I am not dreaming. This is really happening! My DH couldn't stop telling me how happy he is with how well I'm doing.
