Joanie, thank you SO much for the hug! emoticon This job loss is excruciating right now but I am trying to believe that God does have a plan there somewhere. It is just hard as this is the 3rd time in the last 8 years I've had a great job go away through no fault of my own. It's just very hard to understand.

But I am also so grateful I have found this team and wonderful people like you; the encouragement is very comforting. I covet your prayers and believe in the power of prayer.

Thank you also for the congrats on the BL loss. I was so surprised to land in that spot and I will continue on; not letting the stress of my situation impact my health. emoticon I also know losing weight will help my self-esteem when job searching too so a win-win.

emoticon Good luck tomorrow!
Love and hugs,
Teri

Thanks again for the goodie! I totally feel like I'm on a roll. I've really buckled down recently and forced myself into some better habit... tracking ALL of my food and staying within my range, drinking 100oz of water everyday, getting a minimum of 5 servings of veggies daily. It's really helping! It's tough, but the results motivate me to stick with it! I have a calendar on my wall for my goals, and each day I hit a goal I get a sticker on that day for that goal. It's nice visual :)
Good luck this week!!!!
