RACHEL I think that you look lovely in your grad pictures, and not big at all!
You are to be congratulated on your willingness to try something adventurous and new!

Rachel - things are working out just like they should. Kris said everything I would of about 4 hours not being that far. I wouldn't take his saying do what you want as not caring, perhaps he doesn't want to influence your decision. Just keep the lines of communication open and remember there is email and phones.

That is great news Rachel! I must say, you seem a lot happier and far more relaxed now :-)

I wouldn't worry about your weight in those graduation photos - you don't actually look that big and I certainly wouldn't have said it as "so large" that is a negative way of putting it and will only serve to cause further depression! The fact is, you may be overweight, but you aren't huge with it! - and your face looks gorgeous. You had enough on your plate (figuratively speaking) without having an extra load of weightloss attempts. Now you have the time to start with that - and you know what? I am sure that you will do it - just like you drove those 4 hours that you had never done before and didn't think you would be able to :-) Just start the nutrition thing off slowly with one or two changes, and add something else to the mix as your mind/body gets used to it. Use your nutrition tracker, and if possible weigh your food. Don't skip any meals....... you know the drill!

Good luck and take care,
Kris

Hello all, I am back from my trip and must say that I am VERY proud of myself for making the drive all by myself.

As far as the interview, I felt it went well. It wasn't much of an interview. I was told by the recruiter today that they really want me and I should be given an offer tomorrow. I spent all day with the dentist and CEO of the company touring near-by cities to see where I might want to live and what there is to do. Apparently the CEO told the recruiter that I am "very hard to read and quite." I have been told that since I was in 4th grade! My face is always very blank unless I am smiling, which I cannot do 24/7. So hopefully that didn't affect me.

I am VERY nervous about the fact that I will be 4 hours away from my boyfriend. The other problem is, he works on the weekends, so we will really never see each other. It also bothers me that he doesn't seem to care what I do or that I will be moving so far away. He just tells me to do what I need to do and we will make it work. Seems impossible now when I see him almost everyday.

If offered the job tomorrow, I am probably going to take it. I am 98% sure I am going to take it. I was actually just turned down by another job so I need this. I am just very nervous about that test and continue to pray that I do well and passed it.

I am glad you all like the graduation photos. I am hoping to pick up my diploma tomorrow. I am kind of sad that I am so large in these photos. I have really let myself go. But now time to get serious. Umm where do I even begin? I have so much weight to take off! I am excited to regain energy though!

I love your graduation photos, and I'm glad for you that the tests are now behind you.
If you can drive 2 hours, you can drive 4 hours; you'll do fine.
Best wishes on the interview and the test results!

Take a good sigh of relief and believe in yourself that you did well on your tests. I lived near Alpena for a while. I'd go back there. A nice community.

Hope for the best! And good luck on your interview. margi. emoticon

They say 3-4 weeks but I am hoping I will get the results back in 2-2.5 weeks since most people aren't taking it right now. I have to get through this trip up north to NAIL this interview and then it's ON for my exercise and eating healthy routine. I have nothing to do this 3 day weekend but focus on myself! The boy will be gone.

Well my dreaded two day test is over. It was actually VERY hard and I am very stressed and nervous that it did not go well. I changed some answers from right to wrong, and couldn't remember some. The second day was all on cases and it was very difficult. I have been praying everyday that I passed but it is out of my hands now and I will accept whatever happens.

I still have not decided about the job in the U.P. BUT I have another job interview in upper Michigan (Alpena) tomorrow. I had lunch with the recruiter today and he told me I basically had the job and he would be surprised if they did not give me an offer by the end of the week. The job is about 1.5 hours closer to home and pays more. I am driving myself up there tomorrow and am very nervous as I do not do well in cars. I have never driven more than 2 hours alone and this will be a 4 hour drive. Hopefully I make it. After this interview, I should have a better idea of where I want to go. And hopefully I passed the exam so I don't have to lose both offers or be embarrassed.

New graduation photos are on my sparkpage!
