Wow! I have been a bad blogger! *Bad blogger* I haven’t written a post since August of last year. So much has changed since then. After much prayer and deliberation, I decided to leave my job at Family First in Tampa to go back into the classroom. I have been teaching German at Central High School in Brooksville, Florida as a long-term substitute since August 24th. I applied to Asbury Seminary in the hopes of pursuing a Masters of Divinity, but have deferred that application while I wait to be hired full-time.
While I really miss working with all the great people at Family First, I have to say that I absolutely love being back in the classroom. I love working so close to home…my commute went from over an hour to less than 15 minutes! And most of all, I love that I’m able to spend so much more time with my niece and nephew.
I’ve continued to work on my weight-loss and I am currently at 306 pounds…about 75 pounds down from my highest weight. I haven’t been as dedicated as I should or could have been, but I continue to make positive progress. In fact, I have been in communication with the casting producers from The Biggest Loser and Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition regarding the next seasons of both shows. I’m also joining a “competition” here locally in Hernando County with a couple of girlfriends. On top of that, another girlfriend and I are walking together twice a week at one of our local walking parks. I’m highly motivated and committed to making all the changes I need to in order to reach my ultimate goal of 120-135 pounds and being the most fit of my life.
So, I am sorry for being gone so long. I won’t make any promises I can’t keep, but I will say that it won’t be so long between my next post. Also, if you’ve been following my Weight Loss Wednesdays, I’ll be back in the swing next week.
