Slowly gettin there

Happy St. Patty's Day!

I weighed in this morning at 222. It's slow but it's still going down. In some ways I think it's better this way. Still I can't help longing for some fast dramatic results.

I made a really good veggie soup with lentils the other day. I had never had lentils before and I like them.

On the financial front I'm really optimistic about a new job prospect. I went Friday and applied. I talked to the woman there for about half an hour. It's a heath care job so I have to get a TB test, a background check, and my CPR and first aid renewed. My CPR is not yet expired but it's close enough that I might as well renew it now.
I really want and need this job. It's close enough so I could walk, more hours and more money.

Haven't quit yet

The last month has been crazy. I wrote about wrecking my car. Well finally just the other day the insurance company called and yesterday the guy came to appraise the damage. The good news is I'm getting a check for $1600, the bad news is they are totalling my car. So I have to find a new car. They did authorize a rental car until Sunday so I can get to work. I should be able to find another car fairly quickly.
The roomie was planning on moving to Michigan. The one Walmart he called didn't have any open positions so he decided not to move. The friends he was going to move in with up there moved down here. They are staying with us until they find jobs and a house. Then at the end of the month all of them will be living together in a house somewhere else.
It feels like I have 10 million things I have to do before the end of the month and it's overwhelming.
The weight loss is at a stand still. Not losing anything but not gaining any either. So I guess that's good. The weather is supposed to be nice today. I think it's supposed to get up to 60. I will make time to walk today.
I will get back to weight loss after things calm down here. I just can't do it right now.
