Well, the past few days have been interesting, to say the least. Thursday I found out that I was getting a promotion, one that I did not apply for, nor did I know that I was being considered for. But I got it! A supervisory position with more pay. I'm very excited. The only down side is that it is at a different location, so I have to leave my coworkers that I have been with for 3 years. Also, I start Monday, so I really didn't have anytime to say "Bye" of anything. But that's OK. Last night, me, my husband and some friend went out to eat, drink and celebrate. We had a great time. I didn't necessarily eat the healthiest thing on the menu, but that's OK too. We were celebrating and having a good time. And this morning I did my first official weigh in, and I lost 1.5 lbs. Yeah! It has been a great first week and I am pumped and ready to start the next. But for now, it's time to do some house cleaning (Does that count as exercise?) emoticon

    The promotion sounds great. If you read OG MANDINO'S books, you will get the jest of how working at your best brings about rewards like "getting a raise and not even knowing about it." emoticon

    Wow, congrats on the promotion! It is a bummer leaving coworkers you get along with, but in an economy like this, shoot -- what an opportunity! The 1.5 lbs loss is just the sugar-free frosting on the low-fat cake, right? LOL.
