Being in a new place can be really stressful, even if it doesn't feel like it. And the unemployment, believe me, I get. I have been unemployed for 4 years and finally got my disability since my doc said I couldn't work. But in the first 2 years of being out of work, I gained 60 whooping pounds from depression. So you are not alone! I promise!!
So welcome and enjoy! If you have questions, you can always reach out and send me a SparkMail, or stop by my SparkPage at the link below. We can do this together, with encouragement and support from others, and SparkPeople has really great resources for any kind of workout or condition!
