Rough Start To The Week

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

but I am holding strong. I could have curled up in a ball and stayed depressed, I could have eaten for comfort but I haven't.
Instead, I have exercised ( a lot!), and I have tried to continue to eat at least the minimum for my food categories.
I gave notice at my job and was dismissed on the spot, now they are harassing me at home. I was able to move up the start date of my new job so I start there tomorrow. The hours and the salary are better, it is a better work environment and I will be home with the kids more often. I didn't expect to be treated so poorly, it has knocked my self esteem but it has also knocked the scale---I am down 2.6lbs since Sunday.
Keeping my head up, no matter how much I am hurting.

    Wow, sounds like a rough few days. And you seem to be handling it so well.

    I hope your new job turns out to be better for you - change is sometimes hard, but often you wonder why you didn't make the change sooner. I had a similar situation last year with work - wanted to leave, but was stuck in a contract (and I don't believe in breaking it, even though I technically could have), had found a job and gave 6 months notice. When I finally got to the new job, I am so happy with it! Better hours, less stress, closer to home (can even ride my bike, depending on the weather), closer to the children... I really hope your new job works out for you like mine did for me!

    Congrats on the weight loss, and good luck at the new job today!
