I haven't been on much or posting much lately, so I don't know if anyone will remember me.
For the past three months, I have been losing, then gaining, the same five pounds. Four months ago, I lost my job, so my focus has not been on my weight loss as much as it has been on finding a new job. I'm a teacher with a master's degree, so I have had NO luck finding a job for the next school year. Yay economy! Anyway, with the school year starting in two weeks, I've finally come to terms with the fact that I will be unemployed this school year, or at least not employed in my career field.
I moved back home to my parent's house this weekend and decided to join a gym. I found a pretty awesome one nearby that is 24 hours, and pretty cheap, too. They're just now opening, so they have great specials at the moment. Plus, they offered me a job! So, if I'm going to be working there, it's pretty hard to not work out right afterward, and I signed up for some personal training sessions too.
I know this is long, but I've just been so frustrated and so depressed for the past few months and today is the first day I feel excited about anything. Now that I know I won't be looking for a job in my career field for at least six more months, I can focus on my health. Then next summer, when I get an awesome teaching job, I can buy a cuter (and tinier!) wardrobe for the next school year!
