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.
