Lost 2lbs this week after my liberation day

My stress level is much improved after making the big decision to take severence and stay home for a year.  My employer doesn't know that will be my decision and I will not tell them until I get the actual notice and am formally presented with the option of relocating or taking a severance pkg.  Based on the information I have, we may not be severed until this Fall, but it is a possibility of being severed in June.  I would have a much better sev pkg for me if I'm severed in June b/c the new company who bought us out - their policy and pkg changes after that date to a lesser amount.
Anyway - enough about that.  Because my stress level is lower, I can just feel my entire body and soul relax a little.  It makes want to really slow down and make myself the priority and focus on what I need to do to improve my health.  And this week I lost 2 lbs for the first time in a month.  The entire month I was trying to make my decision, I didn't lose a single lb.  I've also noted how I've not really felt hunger - and its awesome.  I hope it stays this way!  I'm eating a 30g protein shake for bfast, a lean cuisine for lunch, and a small dinner.  Next I'm going to go back to my personal trainer b/c I need to incorporate that into my day. 
In the meantime, I'm dreaming of what its going to be like at home.  I have home projects I want to work on, some knitting and sewing projects I'd like to complete,  I want to grow and maintain a nice garden and enjoy the beach.  Exciting!

  3. Nice weightloss, send those vibes my way. Also, re: early vs. late severance, sometimes if you let your employer know that you will volunteer for the earlier package they will work with you, especially toward the end of the financial quarter when they are closing; there is an advantage to earnings report to exclude the "one time costs/expense".. just thought I would pass that along.

  6. So glad to hear that your weight loss has started back up. Sounds like you will be so much better off once your severance is complete. Take the time to do what you want, as you said. Enjoy yourself.
