    SW wise it has been a great week!

    • I got into my smallest jeans and they are the only ones I can wear now. The others are all too big!
    • I lost 3 pounds, got my 1.5 stone award and SOW award.
    • I have just discovered that I am now in the healthy BMI range (just) and no longer classed as overweight, though I still feel I am.
    That has been the positive side. :)

    On the negative side, I was given 2 weeks notice at work. I have been temping there for 19 months so was kind of hoping they would ask me to stay, but no such luck.
    At least they gave me notice... and as a temp when it comes to staff reduction, the temps go first.
    But hey ho, I am trying to be positive and have applied for a few jobs so can only wait and see. :)
    The stress and worry probably helped with the weight loss as my tummy ties in a knot when I am stressed, worried or upset and my appetite has flown out the window!
    But hey hey, I will keep on smiling :)

    Well done on the weight loss! And fitting into jeans that you couldn't previously always feels good!!
    Good luck on finding a new job!

    Well done, its good to see all your hard work and determination is paying off, it must be great to think that all your jeans are too big, for me they are all too small at the moment.
    Sorry to hear about your job, it must be very stressful for you at the moment, all the best of luck with getting a new job, having lost the weight should give you some confidence which is always good for interviews. x

    Well done with the weight loss & bet you feel so good wearing your 'slim jeans'.

    I was made redundant earlier this year & was out of work for 7 weeks, it's not a nice feeling. And trying to feed a family of 4 on £63.40 just doesn't happen:cool:.

    You will get another job, there is always some temping work somewhere.

    GOOD LUCK

    Thanks all!
    I am trying to keep positive.
    This has been such a bad year for us.
    My hubby was made redundant, and is now working part time - better than nothing, though.
    I lost by brother in law, then my father in law, now my job!
    2010 has just got to be better!
