After 4 Fridays in a row at 140.8, I finally saw 140.0 on the scale this morning! I know it's not much, but I'm so grateful to see it! I'm sure it helps that I don't get much chance to eat during registration week at school, so my calories were in range. And I am back up to about 15 miles a week on the running, slow and steady, so I think that is a factor. I need to keep at it and drop the other 5-7 I really need to lose to feel better in my clothes. It's not like they don't fit, it's just snug enough that I find myself checking all angles in the mirror in the morning to see what might be spilling over :-(

On the good news front, I got a new job!! Just a couple of interviews and I stumbled into what I think may be a great fit! The company is a custom home-builder about 30-45 minutes away from home, so it will be a commute, but the people are just awesome, and the salary will be substantially more, between the rate and going to year-round. I'm nervous, I'm excited, I'm SO happy to be leaving this job behind, though not some of the people, for sure.

Now we're just waiting for Princess to get home from Finland next week and we'll get geared up to send her off to collitch, and life can return to what passes for normal in the Emma Household :-)

Hope you all have a great weekend, enjoy the waning summer and time with friends and family.

    Wow, congratulations on your new job! And breaking into a whole new field too! It sounds like a great time for you to be making the switch to year-round, now that your youngster is off to college. You'll do great! Nice job breaking your weight plateau too- that's not easy to do. emoticon emoticon
