Weekly Check-In: Weeks 41 & 42


I came close to falling off the wagon. Hopefully for good reason. After a month of tossing out resume’s and getting nothing, last week (week 41) I got calls / e-mails and lined up four interviews which took place this week (week 42).

Needless to say, preparing and going to four interviews, plus a busy time for current job position, and volunteer demands on top of the holiday season and my brother arriving to stay with us for three weeks this coming Monday has made staying on top of health and fitness goals difficult.

I almost had a complete meltdown this past Monday just before my first interview when I realized that I had not tried on my interview suit, purchased after I had lost the six sizes in August. I was sure that with the off the wagon time and feeling like I am treading water lately that I would not fit into the suit, which was a snug fit to begin with, and I’d have nothing appropriate to wear to the interview.

Fortunately this was all just paranoia. The skirt is actually a little looser than I remember. Which is great.

The holidays are going to be challenging. I’m cutting myself some slack, and focusing on keeping the goals top of mind. If I can make it through the next two weeks on track then I simply have to avoid my usual MO of letting everything fall apart after the major stress is gone and I will be creeping up on a very successful year.

When I say very successful I mean, I’ve actually lost weight, kept it off and am continuing to try to loose weight, and not the same 20 lbs that I’ve lost over and over and over which usually results me incrementally gaining weight year after year. At this rate I could feasibly be a size six next summer!
