from your friend feed daily entries as I have recently gotten a part-time job (yay!) and haven't had the time (or energy) to respond to your milestones and accomplishments. Please excuse my lack of comments on your blogs as I am spending more and more time getting ready for work, traveling to and from work, and re-arranging my days to accommodate my constantly changing work schedule. Please excuse my lack of interaction on the SparkPeople website as I have been so sleep deprived lately that I sometimes fall asleep on the bus to work and generally forget what day it is.
Thank you all who wished me well in my job search and supplied me with lots of encouragement and enthusiasm. While not my dream job, and it is certainly the most physically challenging job I have had for the least amount of money since I was a teenager, I am earning a living again, albeit a meager one. I am contributing again to federal taxes, state taxes, social security and the gross national product in general.
And on the plus side, I have been working so hard that my stalled weight loss has finally budged. According to my BMI, I am no longer considered overweight but now in the higher end of my correct BMI.
Thank you all for all your support and encouragement and I hope to become more active on the site once my schedule stabilizes.
