    I am very disappointed this week. I have been eating amazing. My healthiest food week to date, plus I have been exercising really well. All week my weight has been going down. Well, this morning, I got on the scale and I am up. I know it is pms weight because its that time, but I feel sooo frustrated. I was looking forward to finally having a decent sized loss.

      Yay I'm down this week! I've been eating really well, although not exercising as much as I would like, and I think the stress of being only a week away from the wedding is keeping the scale down. So Yay for stress weight loss??

      Can't to relax this long weekend! Happy May 2-4 fellow Canucks!

        Ugh this week has been horrible for me! I had friends in town and the weekends eats were less than desirable. Also, I didn’t come to work Monday since they were here, making me have to work 4 /10 hour days to make it up. I have an hour commute each way, so my days have been about 12 hours. So no workouts for me. Ok, my pity party is over!

        Now I have to report on the immense stress that I’m under right now. FI was casually looking for jobs, as his firm started doing layoffs. He’s in a very specialized area, so jobs have been scarce. We find out last week that he has an interview in LA this past Wednesday. We were on the fence about it, as we wanted to go home to Denver. But he went anyway. He’s not sure how it went, but they said they would want him to start RIGHT away. LA is about 350 miles south of us. THEN we hear that his current firm may have lost one of their biggest clients- which means current job could go belly up soon…..so now we WANT the LA job. I don’t know how it would work though. He would have to move down first alone, find a place alone- I would have to give my two weeks notice, pack the apartment, have him come up to help move 2 weeks later……………all a month in a half before the wedding!? And if he doesn’t get it………… we’re pretty much screwed if he gets laid off. I think I just gained a lb thinking about it………………Sorry for the book!!! I just feel like I’m going to scream..

        Thanks for listening ladies

            Hey Jannae,

            Wow, you have a lot on your plate! It sounds like things are extremely stressful for you right now, but I hope everything works out for both of you in the end. Who knows, maybe this opportunity is a blessing in disguise. I imagine the timing could have been better, but try to take a deep breath and deal with one thing at a time. It will all work out!

            Hugs!

              Thank you SO much Renee! I truly believe that everythign happens for a reason- and I'm trying not to stress so much because there is nothing I can do to change the outcome.

              I'll keep you guys posted- I know we'll hear probably after the weekend. And I am the least patient person on the face of the planet

                  Wow, I can't imagine being in your shoes right now! That must be so stressful. I'm crossing my fingers for you that everything works out and works out better than planned, too! : )

                    Thank you guys so much!!! So an update: this afternoon FI got a call, and the prospective firm said that they're just waiting to get his background check through w/in the next few days, but if that's all good, then they will be making him an offer!!!!!!!! We're trying not to get too worked up until the actual offer is on the table, but it's some weight lifted off of our shoulders knowing that it's a pretty good possibility.

                    I'll let you guys know when we hear- and if it's good news, I may not be on the forum for a bit because I'll be trying to move our life halfway down the state!

                      Wheeeeeewwwww

                      So does anyone want to come to Cali and help me with this madness?? Joking!!! But I do have the cutest dog on the face of the planet to try and persuade (shameless pet plug, I know! I am obsessed w/ my dog)
