Well it finally happened, I lost my job. It was a bit later than I had thought and I was in no way prepared. They forced me to resign, I gave that hellhole 9 years of my life and they just threw me away just like that. And it was for a stupid reason! I always thought I would get fired because of customer complaints but NO they got rid of every single person in the dept. I worked in. Oh well in a way I think it was a good thing, I worked in a grocery store and having access to a lot of bad foods didn't help my diet at all. I have to admit it has been easier sticking with it not being around food all day long. I also know what I am going to do, I am gonna lose enough weight to join the Army.

WOW I can't believe it. Are you happy about not having to work for these people or freaked out or kinda not caring or scared? I hope you are ok. It sounds like you are right...Japan is expensive! So saving right now is priority number one!!!

I believe to be extra-ordinary I can't do it without God and I have to do what the ordinary person refuses to do.

I also think we can do anything if we are willing to pay the price and take the time that our goal requires. Are you willing to pay the price and spend the time to gain your goal?

Well as of today my trip plans are on indefinite hold. I think at the end of this month there is a REALLY good chance I will lose my job.
They are closing the dept. I work in and I think they really wanna get rid of me. I am not exactly public friendly and have a few customer complaints against me. So for right now I am saving for my inevitable unemployment. So maybe I will go at a later date, I am thinking about joining the army when I reach a suitable weight.
I can save money and go back to Japan in a few years.

If you are a student, you might try finding a good price on a ticket through STA travel. It's a discount student travel site. Otherwise, I usually use Travelocity. Tickets are pretty expensive though and hotels in Japan can also be a bit pricey depending on where you will be staying. You can usually find decent rates at hostels though. Also, if you don't book hotels in advance, you can usually go to a tourist desk (usually in the main train stations) and they can usually book you in a hotel nearby at a reduced rate.

At present my goal is to get down to 150LBS to go to Japan next year, My ultimate goal however is 125LBS. I lost quite a bit of weight the last time I was there because of all the walking,stairs(WOW) and healthy food, so I figure I can lose a LARGE chunk of it while I am there. I am thinking of planning my trip through Expedia, they seem to have the best deals and a Travel Agent will cost me a small fortune!!! Example-Expedia-$2300 Travel Agent-$5000+ WOAH BIG DIFFERENCE!!! Or I may book seperatly I sometimes hear Expedia is REALLY bad to work with! And screws up qiute frequently but we will see! I am still in the saving money stages anyway!
