A little over 6 months to be exact... BUT I'm back! emoticon Let's see... I was doing Weight Watchers and was doing pretty good on it... Had lost 17 lbs and had met my 5% goal... then the holidays hit and I got off the program... And as of this morning I have GAINED 10 lbs back emoticon

But... I'm TRYING to get back on track and my 1st step is to get back to sparkpeople.com emoticon Lee has decided to do the South Beach Diet(HIS IDEA ACTUALLY! emoticon ) and I am going to try it with him... We are currently getting all the UNHEALTHY JUNK out of the house and my plan is to go shopping for the Phase 1 staples next weekend(March 2nd) and start the diet on the 3rd... emoticon

Ummm... let see what else.... emoticon emoticon emoticon

OH! I am currently still at American Classifieds... Have been there almost 7 months, but it is a VERY UNSTABLE job... emoticon I am the 'Office Manager'/ 'Secretary'... meaning that I take the incoming phone calls from people wanting to place an ad in our paper(and it is getting to be less and less), and I keep the office tidy and running smoothly, do the weekly accounts receivable reports, etc...

Since I've been there the reports show us to be LOSING MONEY like crazy... My boss is writing hot checks right and left... My(and my co-workers) check have 'bounced' twice in the past 2 months... I LOVE what I am doing and really like my co-workers and even my boss seems like a nice man... BUT boy is he ever un-organized! emoticon and I believe in DENIAL about the state of his affairs...

SO, I have been looking for a MORE STABLE and RELIABLE job... I have 2 job interviews next week... One is Tuesday morning for a General Office Clerk position at a local Roofing Co. in town... The pay range is about what I'm making now(maybe a little better) and I'm hoping it will be more stable... The second job interview is for a Mail Clerk position in the Mail Room of the prison that is located about 30 to 40 min. from where I live... It is a minimum risk prison and since it is a STATE prison I know they have GREAT benefits/retirement/vacation time earned, etc... and the pay is about $2 to $3 more than I'm currently making... And being a PRISON I'm sure I would have job security... emoticon I interview for it on Wed. the 27th at 1:20p.m....

I wanted to talk to my boss today and explain that I will be LATE coming to work next Tuesday and will have to leave work early(11:30a.m.) Wed. due to the interviews... I'm going to be honest as to WHY I'm going to be late and need to leave early... BUT he NEVER showed up to the office today... I got 1 text from him saying he was out of town, but it didn't state that he WOULDN'T be in today... I sure hope he is there tomorrow... I NEED to talk to him about next week and tomorrow is 'pay day' for what it is worth... I'm PRAYING my check will cash...

Well, that's about it(I think)... I am SOOOO looking forward to getting back on track... emoticon

    Welcome back!

    WW is a good program, but I like SB better. I tend to gravitate towards refined carbs and if I tell myself I'm "on plan" when I do since it's within my points I will slide right down that slippery slope into a cake!

    Good luck on the job search. It can sure be stressful.

    South Beach is a great diet. I think you will do well.

    I hope you get one of those jobs.
