Hey ladies glad to hear everyone is well. I started nursing school this week and have a sinus infection and bronchitis so I've been pretty busy and sick lately. Haven't worked out since being sick but as soon as I'm better I'll get back to it, I am at 157-158 now days and it's been hard to get under that number but it's okay I'm not too concerned with the number as much as how I look.

Idk if anyone has heard of this but Abercrombie & Fitch is doing this promo where if you go to their store on the weekend now through labor day, you get a code to text in and win a $10 gift card or jeans. DH and I went and won the jeans! I was so excited until I realized that DH and I are wayyy to big to fit into their jeans :oops: That was so depressing to get free $80 jeans and we cant wear them. They stop womens jeans at an 8/10 though :shock: and mens at a 36. Dh wears 40 so we got them for him hoping he will be able to fit into them when he loses some weight. We have gone each weekend and gotten some free shirts too. I hope this will help motivate us!

Wow what a cool promo, but boo for the sizes not fitting yet. I just started being able to fit into their jeans not too long ago so I know the frustration, I went in there 15 lbs ago and couldn't fit them over my butt haha. Nursing school is going good so far, today is the beg. of my 2nd week and I'm starting to feel a tiny bit better so hopefully this week will be easier. My antibiotics are slow to help though which is a bit worrisome... Anyways gotta run but I hope you all have a wonderful week!

What an awesome promo, but I hate that they changed their sizes. They used to go up to 12 and at least a 40 for mens! My husband still has all of his cargo shorts from there. I sold all my old clothes from there a year or two ago!

Thats great you can wear them! Fitting into clothing sizes gives me a much greater sense of accomplishment than the scale. I hope you keep feeling better!

So, before Seth deployed, I was working for a school district here in the SPED room. I LOVED my job, difficult, yes, but very rewarding.



I applied at the district we live in now, which is a higher hourly wage and I was really hoping to get in with a school closer to where they live and decided if I didn't have a job by the 19th (Kenz's first day of Kindergarten), I would apply back with the school district, because I know they'd have no problem hiring me back.



So, I applied on July 15th, and I got an interview July 31st. I could tell their district was a lot different than the previous district I worked in and I felt my interview didn't go as well as it could have. I still held out hope that maybe I would have a second chance with another school in the district. I finally got a letter a couple weeks after that they filled the position and I was extremely disappointed.



School started on Tuesday and a friend that works at the school I applied at, told me they had a position open and they're going through their previous interview candidates. I got a call on Wednesday asking if I was still interested (not a job offer), but if everything checked back and my references were good, I would be called.



Thursday, the principal was talking to my friend about their new hire and my friend casually asked if it was me. She said yes! Then today, my friend sent me a picture with my name on this duty list with hers!



I'm still waiting on the official job offer call, but EEP! :D I should be starting next Tuesday!

Hey ladies!! How is everyone? DH and I decided that we want to make it our goal for both of us to lose 30lbs. At first we said 40lbs but I think 30 is a better place to start. I am at 230 :oops::oops::oops: DH is at 250. Im hoping for us to lose 1lb a week. I suck at dieting so I think if I increase my exercise it should help me. What goals are everyone working on now?

I weighed in at 226.5 today! A week ago I was at 230 so I guess the loss is just water weight but it feels good to see those numbers go down. I think Im going to make 10lbs lost my goal, it seems attainable and I think I have failed before due to unrealistic goals. So... 6.5lbs to go til my goal!
