I had my first weigh-in of the new year today.  I am down 4.6 lbs for a total of 15.4!  I am very happy.  I am beginning to see the changes and I am starting to fit back into some clothes that I've outgrown.  So far I've lost 25% of my goal.  Yay!

About a week and a half ago, I applied for a job with a broadcasting corporation in Bedford, NH.  Today I got a call about the job and had a five minute phone interview.  Of course, I totally think I bombed, but I can never be objective about these things.  I always assume the worst.  The position is for an executive assistant/marketing assistant with a background in finance.  Basically, the job description fits my work history to a tee and I think I would be a great fit.  We'll see what happens.

Tomorrow it is back to yoga after many many weeks away.  It is going to be painful, but I will power through it.  

As for the Christmas gifts, I am still slowly trucking along.  I hope to finish at least one of the gifts this weekend and maybe two if I am lucky.  Hopefully I can send them out next week sometime along with my niece's and nephew's birthday presents.

That's awesome!! Especcially considering having to deal with Thanksgiving and Christmas goodies!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you on the job. The theatre I'm working at is closing it's doors, so I'm also hunting for a job. Ugh.

Yay for 15 pounds!!! I'm so proud of you! I'm up to 5 pounds, but I totally slacked during the holidays, and I'm -quite frankly- just winging it. So I'm still calling it a victory.

Hope the whole job situation works out for you. And if it does, you mind sending that job ju-ju our way? :)

Congratulations! It's nice when you finally get to the point where the weight loss starts to show--feels like you've actually accomplished something.

Great job, Diana! I'm down less than a pound and I'm thrilled about that - you must be so delighted with your loss! Keep it up! :)
