July 23rd ~ Week in Review

I started my new job at WellCare on Monday, 7/23 and it was overwhelming, but awesome! There are 3,500 people at my job and the campus is huge. Everyone is my department seems very nice and helpful. I feel I have made the correct move in leaving my job from Aon of 7 years.

I have gone to an hourly position, first time in I can not remember, but it works! Drake and I did Weight Watchers this past week and weighed in on Saturday, 7/28. I lost 3.4 lbs. and Drake lost 3.6 lbs. our first week! We are both proud of ourselves and especially me with starting a new job AND WW! Drake has been using the BowFlex and I can already see his body changing. That is my goal for this week!

We had a awesome weekend and have prepared ourselves for next week. I am so happy in many areas of my Life and proud of myself. I LOVE being 40 and finally... Living Life!

Commitment Day ~ July 21, 2007

It has been a while since I have blogged, but Life is good! I love being 40 and love where Life is taking me.

Today Drake and I joined Weight Watchers (WW). It has been a long time since I have been committed to WW, but I feel so confident and excited to begin my new journey. We bought a Bowflex machine and I am so proud of Drake for putting it together. The timing could not have been better for our challenge.

Below are before pictures that we took today to track our progress.

Christine's beginning weight 303 lbs. (still have kept 40 lbs. off!)

Drake's beginning weight 207.8 lbs.

I also begin my new job at WellCare on Monday, July 23 after 7+ years at Aon Consulting. I am so high on Life and so grateful.

4 weeks til I am the B-I-G 40!

Wow! January 2007 is already gone and here we are on February 9th. I can only imagine my state of mind this time 4 weeks from now while I am celebrating my 40th Birthday! The best part is Carla, Tomi and Hollie are coming down to celebrate with me!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it.

I loved celebrating 2007... out with the old... in with the new! My Pampered Chef business is off to a good start. I qualified as a Consultant, January 30th and received my first commission check yesterday for $311.

Drake and I become closer everyday and I have never loved anyone the way I love him. We have been having fun cooking and using our new products from Pampered Chef. All of their stuff is awesome! Here is a picture of Drake's Caribbean Stew. We both love to cook and eat! We are both ready to start exercising and cutting back on our food intake.

Floe will celebrate her 11th Birthday on February 15th. She weighs 20 lbs. Floe loves to lay on Drake's feet and rub her face. Daddy Drake spoils her rotten!! Happy Birthday Baby Girl
