Almost to Second Goal!!!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

I haven't been as active as I should be, either physically or on here. I started a new job almost 2 weeks ago, and while it is on my feet, and I have to do quite a bit of walking, if I start walking for fitness on the job, everyone around me will probably think I am nuts and avoid me like the plague (which will NOT be good, as it is a sales job). Last week, when I weighed myself, I had not lost any weight. As a matter of fact, I think I went up 0.2 pounds. This week, however, I am down 2 pounds! I am almost to my second weight loss goal of 10 pounds lost.

This is giving me a boost. Since I am "rebooting" my career (after burn out with my previous job), I am kind of at step 1 again, which is a little depressing at my age, when I should be looking for stability. But, I can work back up, and hopefully make things the way I want.

    Congratulations on "almost" getting to your second goal. I'm sure you will be there soon. I have recently sworn off the scale as it just wasn't working for me. It does not seem to be moving although my clothes are fitting and feeling much better. So I have started a new streak for myself .... not going to look at the scale for at least 10 days and then re-evaluated after that. I think I may be more motivated by not constantly depending on a number.
    Glad you like you new job too!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Starting a new job is stressful! You are still on track though, even if it is not as fast of a loss as you would like.

    Who knows, once you get to know your co-workers better, there may be some kindred spirits there, or someone who is inspired by how your fitness is improving.

    BTW, I think getting out of a job burn out situation like you did is a healthy move. There is nothing worse than getting up and going to a job you hate day after day. Starting over is not a bad thing. Just think of all the new things you can learn and new skills you can develop! You may be surprised by the good things that come out of what started as a negative situation.

    Wishing you much success!
