DEVILEDHONEY's CalorieKing Blog

I am a 40 year old woman who has been dieting most of my adult life. In 2005 I joined weight watchers and lost close to 65 lbs. Alas in the last 7 years I have slowly gained 30 back, so this time I am trying to take those off and figure out the while maintenance thing.

Never giving up

Tuesday, March 25th 2014

Today is my last Friday in the crazy job and for the first time since I was hired almost 3 months ago someone asked me to go to lunch with them. She asked me because she will be on vacation the next week which is my last week.

We went to a cute little Italian place and I ordered the spinach salad. It was SUPER YUMMY. And I think I actually made a great choice. I didn’t use the dressing and skipped the walnuts (I am not a fan of walnuts). The salad had spinach, 3 olives, red onion, roasted...

I got the great job I interviewed for and I have just over a week left here in the craptastic place. I wish I was at goal I have sooo many more professional clothes that fit me when I am 20 lbs lighter. The new place is a bank and they have a strict dress code that coupled with my tattoos mean I need jackets and pants to wear to work.
