Day 523- Successful First Week Back on Track

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

I wrote my "Stopping a Tailspin" blog last Monday at 197.6 lbs. And yesterday I weighed in at 194.2 lbs, a full 3.4 pounds lighter. I know that it is easier to lose weight after you've gone off track because it's almost like starting over. But I'm just so glad that I'm making good decisions and seeing results. That's what got me hooked on SparkPeople 523 days ago. I hope that I can continue to exercise and eat within my ranges an see the same results this week.

I've continued looking for jobs and had another interview today. I should hear back from them by the end of the week. It's scary to have a Master's degree and have applied to over 40 jobs and still be unemployed. It's not that I think I deserve a job more than anyone else. I know the economy is super hard on every one right now. It's just I've been very lucky in my life to always have a job when I wanted one. But now I REALLY want one and am just having such a difficult time finding one. I know everything will work out eventually, but its still a stressful process.

I have plans to play golf this weekend so I'm really looking forward to that. I've been playing consistently better since I lost weight so that's just another bonus!

Hope you all are having a good week!

    Unemployment is a massive problem, not withstanding the unexplained surge in the DOW. You will succeed, of that I am sure.

    Congrats on graduating and your upcoming wedding, that's wonderful!
In your job search, be sure to ask the interviewers afterwards why you were not chosen and ask them to be specific. Ask them what's missing from your resume, what impressed them, how they felt about your interview. Heck, send them a questionnaire with your thank you note for the interview! And be sure and tell them if the person they chose doesn't work out, you are still interested. Just some suggestions from someone who did a lot of interviewing.
