In late June, Brian found out he got a job in the Shipping/Receiving Department at CLS... In the same building where I work! We spent most of our holiday week preparing him for his first day. I am so happy for him as it has been such a positive move for him... Besides the 6 dollar a hour increase in pay in what he was making at WalMart, he's being treated with respect...something he rarely got in the 21 years he put into WalMart. For the first time ever...last week he told me he loves his job! It was nice to see him smile again.
I ended up not going to the gym for two weeks either...which is very unlike me, but it felt good to relax and take some time to catch my breath. I haven't done that in so long, and obviously it was just what I needed. I'm also starting to feel like my old self again. I'm feeling calmer and happier.
My weight hasn't changed since I last posted, but I haven't gained, and that's the most important thing. Tomorrow I am planning on starting my 5 day pouch test again and get right back on track!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
