Down to 83kg

Thursday, May 09, 2013

Lost another pound! The 80kg barrier is coming closer!!!!!
Am happy, that I lost even though I am still not able to exercise as much as I would want to.
Job front also looks hopeful:

Had the third interview for a job I am being head-hunted for. This job sounds interesting and challenging with good future, even though it won't give much of a salary increment right now.

Also touching conversation with one of the site foremen today. I went to visit his project site, which I had not managed to go to in 1 month. As we walked around to see where his team is not progressing and why, we chatted and I mentioned to him, that if I get the right job I will leave the company. He was really shocked and then he told me something that was totally unexpected and touched me:
The engineers/technicians like me, some have stayed with this company because of me! They respect me and want me to stay. I told him why I think it is time for me to move on and he understood.

Well lets see what the future brings in terms of weight loss and job opportunities...

    Hi there, Kirsten here, you left a nice message on my blog on donating blood. And said we should try to shed the kilos together, well support each other I think you mean. I think that's a great idea, so let's touch base weekly to discuss? emoticon

    Woo-hoo for that weight being gone! And I'm really glad to hear of the interview! How cool is it to get all that recognition form the people you actually work with--I think that's a real barometer of how you work and act on the job despite all the crap. Only best wishes, my friend!
