about to enter uncharted waters

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

In one month I will no longer have a JOB. I have had a full time job for the last 15 years. I am married now so I can explore what I really want to do. We could afford for me to work part time as well but WHAT do I REALLY want to do? What do I love to do? HMM well I love helping others. I am a people pleaser and will go out of my way to do it right. I have worked in insurance and I really enjoyed that. I have now worked in a very small business wearing many many hats and have enjoyed that as well. I guess I like to work in an office setting. I know I don't want to work retail or food. I did not attend college so I know that will be a strike against me. I am working hard at my weigh loss as I know that this should not affect me getting a job but this is the real world. I am about average at 183. Goal to be down to 170's by the time I am looking for a job. I will have to purchase business clothes I am sure. I haven't worn business clothes for YEARS. My current job I can wear anything I would like. So jeans t shirt and sweatshirt is my daily wardrobe. So many little things that will change or need to be changed with this adventure. I know god has me I am just nervous. I love the people I work with now. I really don't want to work for a big company. I want a low stress no drama job. The one thing I am really proud of myself is in all of this is in past I would start stress eating. Let me take that back. I wouldn't just stress eat I would binge on candy. Not just 1 bar more like 2 to 4 bars in one sitting. The unknown and financial stress would put me over the top. I have not done this once and I don't plan to either. I plan to get down to at least 178 by The end of September that is 5 .5 pounds very do able in 5 weeks. I am going to stay focused with my healthy living and go with the flow. I am sure I will hit some rapids down these waters but I know I will hit the calm waters soon! (:

WOO HOO for Monday being over and 1 day closer to a 3 day weekend!! (:
