Well, Spark Coach was right -- time to re-evaluate my goals and weight loss plan. I have lost 13 lbs. and I was very encouraged today. I had a job interview -- which I felt good about. We will see if I make it to the next round of interviews. At any rate, I bought a new pair of dress slacks to wear to the interview and guess what -- size 10 !!! Oh my gosh! It's been a long time. Now I don't fit into every size ten -- I'm actually kind of in between a 10 and a 12, but what a thrill to wear that pair or pants in a size 10. That was motivating and rewarding all at the same time.
It's late, so tomorrow I will take some time and re-evaluate what I want to do with my program. It could use some tweaking to see how it's going to be for the long haul. I do have a ways to go and so I will need to determine at least the next 2 months.
I'm tired so will turn in,

So this is the 31st and I have been sitting here with my July goal list pasted to the edge of my computer all month. How have I done? Well, the really good news is that I lost the 5 lbs. I wanted to lose this month. The last one dropped this morning -- that is what I call close, but I made it! The other items on my list included:
Sell items on Ebay -- I have sold almost $250 worth of stuff that I didn't need!
Lose 5 lbs. -- I went from 153 lbs. to 148 lbs. - Yea me!
Clean out 2 refrigerators - yuck job - did that the first day to get it over!
Take photos of food for cookbook - did 8 photos and inserted them! (more to go)
Paint card table - Did not get this done (mea culpa)
Find part time job - I do have an application in the works and initial contacts made (so technically not done)
So there's the report. Actually I'm pretty happy with it. I guess my motivation to paint the card table isn't too high. Will rethink that one. The part time job -- to be honest I was reluctant to make it a high priority until I got a lead on a job (full time) that I would really like to have. Then I got resume together, put the online application in, took the supervisory test (and passed), and now I am waiting for the interview. I am really excited about it so will be praying about that one!
My main focus has been to get healthy and I am getting there. I have lost 12 lbs. so far and I am pleased with that.
Here is my August goal list:
Lose 5 lbs. by August 31st
Find, interview and secure job.
Sell $200 in items on Ebay
That's it for now. I may think of other things later, but if I become employed I don't want to have too much on my plate (pun intended!)
I do like this goal setting stuff even though it is short term, it is certainly motivating and working for me! Hope you are setting your goals and getting motivated as well!
Take great care of yourself,
