Some good news.

So things are falling into place like they should for once in my freaking life.  I nailed that job, and I didn't just nail it, I got slid into the higher pay grade.  So I'm officially an employee for the state of Arizona.  I start that on Tuesday at 8am.  I get my own office and everything, I'm stoked.  I also finally got my car back, and it's running good.  I've also started looking for a place, right now it's a 45 minute or so drive to work so I need to try to cut down that travel time soon, plus I want my own place with D dammit.  After being independent for so long I hate living at home. 

Weight loss is fine, haven't really exercised this week though, I've just not gone overboard with eating.  Been busy getting ready.  I had to buy some new clothes for work and I've wearing a size 22 pant now, and a 2x shirt.  Nice considering I was in a 26 pant and 4x shirt when I started.  I'll take it.  :)

So I hope things go well with ya'll.  I may be a little quiet for a week or two while I get into the swing of things.

Until next time.


  1. Oh brilliant! Congratulations! Things are looking up!

    I hope all goes well for you. If you're busy as you begin a new job you won't be thinking about food. I hope your weight loss progress benefits from this new job too:)

  2. Thanks. Food has really been one of the last things on my mind, but then so has exercise, so I'm maintaining but not really losing much. I think that'll change soon though once I get a feel for what time I'm going to be getting home, what time I have to get up and on the road to get to work on time etc. The boss when I had my interview kept saying (hypothetically of course since I wasn't officially hired) that I could always adjust my schedule slightly to better fit the traffic pattern around here, and if that's true I can probably make it there in 45 minutes instead of the hour and 15 they say in traffic.

    It's just all a matter of getting in the swing of things.
