So things are finally progressing. Not sure what I did but we’re down a little bit more this week. I still have a ways to go (as evidenced by my shopping spree the other day because I had no work clothes:) ) but progress is progress.
Next, Stats by the month:
Week 1 – 142lbs (7 weeks postpartum)
Week 4 – 140lbs – ouch…no excuses, I have a new workout regime and a new resolve for eating healthy…we should start seeing that number drop.
Week 8 – 135 – Hallelujah! Real progress now! I don’t expect it will continue at this rate but we’ll see.
Week 12 – 133 – time to get back to counting calories:)
Week 16 – 136.5 – taken on Monday. NOTE: this is on a new scale which disagrees with my old scale so we’re kind of resetting a bit.
Week 20 – 134.5
Week 24 – 133.6
Week 26 – 131.4
On other fronts, I’m still waiting to hear on the job. Hopefully I’ll hear from the company on Tuesday with positive info. They told me everything is great and everyone loved me so I guess we’ll see. I’m continuing to “work my pipeline” just in case this one falls through.
And I finally managed to get a hold of a human at the UI office! I found out that I’d filed wrong to begin with which delayed things. All’s well now apparently so I should see my checks soon but it would have been nice to actually hear from someone when my original file was wrong. I can’t imagine being a single income home where you rely on those checks for food, rent/mortgage, and daily living. We’re lucky enough to have another income and some savings that could hold us up if necessary. These checks just make sure we’re not dipping into savings (and don’t even get me started on COBRA!)
