Week 7 Weigh-In

This morning I weighed 348.6 lbs. I am 4.2 lbs. down from last week. I am quite happy.

I am a little concerned because I have an awful ear infection. I have not done much the last couple of days but lay around in pain. I hope the antibiotics kick in soon, so I can get back to my exercise routine.

Finally, the job opportunity I hoped would come through did not. I am looking at some hard choices coming up in the next few months. I may need to completely change careers which would not be such a problem if I did not have a family to support. I do, so I cannot just leave my current position without something else already lined up. On the other hand, I will have a hard time lining something up without my current employer finding out too far in advance of my leaving.

The nature of my current career would make it quite awkward to continue if my employer discovered I would be leaving, especially for another different career. I don't feel comfortable at this time revealing what my current career is.

I think the idea of job searching would be much easier if I were at least 100 lbs. less than I am now. That cannot be helped. I am on the right track now. I just hope that I can find an employer who can look past the weight issue.

I know I hit the next 10 lbs. so it is supposed to be picture time, but I don't feel well today. Maybe if I feel a little better I will take pictures. If not today, then I will post them tomorrow. Although, I still don't think there will be any noticeable difference. I can tell in the way my clothes feel, but not how I look in the mirror.

Getting a job when you are at normal weight is a lot easier. Just by being overweight, you are facing certain prejudices.
