Hitting the ground running

So my husband's company is not gone now, but it IS on the chopping block. I'm praying that they bring in some revenue SOON and they are able to remove themselves from the danger zone they seem to be in now. And to combat this possible change in our lifestyle, I am once again seeking employment. But there's one big change this time. I will NOT give up! I have refined my resume, I'm practicing my typing (up to 49 WPM), and concentrating on a great position in an office.

I think this is also beneficial for my weight loss as well. I'm making better choices, and due to the lack of wealth in the bank, I'm also skipping dining out. This way I can eat what's at the house and not what I can grab at Sonic or the like.

If things don't work out on the trail I'm on now, then I am going to register with an agency and take that route.

Sorry if the posts are short here lately, I'm working through some things and just not sure how to put them into words.

I love your attitude.
not lamenting the belt tightening (kindapun intended) but seeing how it is going to work FOR you in the realm of weightloss.

many of us should follow attitude suit.

Jumping back into the work force is scary, but YOU CAN DO IT! Go out there with the positive attitude that you are worth hiring and be confident. Agencies are helpful, and sometime can help you get your foot in a door you might not have gotten had you walked in independently. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU.

My husband's company just laid off 1000 workers and for the two months prior to the announcement, we were walking on eggshells. It's awful! We were lucky that he was spared but it's really humbling!

I love that you're so honest about your weight. I recently went through a year of hard-core weight loss. I lost 70 pounds but it was the hardest thing I've ever done. I could still lose another 100 pounds and am stuck. It's such a struggle!!

Nice to meet you, I came over from Missy's blog :-)

I'm in the same boat! January 30th is my last day of work and for someone who has worked since college, I have no idea if I will survive taking time off! Hope all is okay...
