Blonde, you are so beautiful in that dress. I remember!

Christine, I'm interested in your "back to weight loss efforts" but I REALLY want to hear about your new job! EVERYTHING! The last time I recall chatting, you were sticking with the teaching/admin job at the college. What's new?

Jan, I negotiated for a new position at my current institution. My boss left abruptly, so it was the perfect time.

Still basically doing what I was doing before, but in a more official capacity and with more pay.

Still, also, on the job market. I'm looking at the next phase of my career and making some decisions. Always in flux lately, it seems! Have you settled into your not-so-new job? It has been almost a year.....feeling good about things?

Mornin' Jan! Thank you for the nice complement. I felt really good on the wedding day. I'll be glad to get back to that weight. I was kicking myself (as usual) then I realized that even though I gained back 15lbs, I also quit smoking and did two tours of prednisone, I was really sick. Now that I feel better, I've got this. It may take some time....

I know that you bake special things for the boys. Are you GF as well?

Hey Blonde!!! You are the BEST!!!! Weight is up :-( Not so much bad choices as too much eating, even when I'm not hungry. I don't don't know if you recall that I am the lead administrator in a small school district...in California. And you may not be tuned in to the budget news...but the horrible economy is forcing some mega major stresses on schools. This is not a good reason for me to overeat. So yeah, I'm not on LCF much 'cause, well, you understand...

Thanks for checking in. I miss you. How are you doing???

Jan the news is bad for CA schools and all who are involved! I can't imagine the stress you must be feeling! Please know we are here.

Shoot, I'm fine. Moving along one day at a time, with a little help from my friends!

Hello Sweet Lady!

Popping in to say HIYA! and let you know that I'm back on JUDDD, for once and for all and for GOOD. This is my way of staying accountable. I'm off the cigs, now I have to get off the FOOD merry-go-round. I hope you're having a lovely summer!

What lovely friends you all are! Thank you for checking in on me. I AM "gathering my forces" for another go 'round at being a better me. It never ends, huh!

AND, we never give up, RIGHT!?

Tomorrow, I'll be facing the food beasts with newly done nails - plain office french on my fingers...and sparkly summer ORANGE on my toes!

Thank you! Jan

But I digress...

I don't even know how to live like "regulars". Will be a whole new concept to me when I arrive.

Have a great weekend, Jan! ♥

Back at you, Danielle! I'm not sure if anyone is "regular", but I know that you have a large heart, and a caring, fun seeking soul. These thing I've learned about you over time. You are determined, persistent, mature and responsible! You are the center of your family, and loved.

Aw Jan, thank you! I try really hard to just give as much as I can to people I care about. The task now is believing that I am deserving of success!

How's the Bay Area...we were there this past March...I did NOT want to leave

Have a wonderful day, friend!
