The End is a Beginning

So I reached my weight goal yesterday! YAY! I hopped in the car and went straight to the recruiter's office. Turns out, however, that they didn't get my high school transcript yet. Grrr.... So tomorrow I'll send another request, this one overnight and requiring a signature. I head to the recruiter's office on Monday to fill out more paperwork. Hopefully I'll head to MEPS next week.

So I started walking and doing jumping jacks to help get rid of the last few pounds and now I'm down to 3. :)

However, I have a suspicion that there will be a snag in my plan. The recruiter told me they can't start the processing for the waivers until after I go to MEPS. That seems weird to me, since I researched it myself and I already know which waivers I will need. It seems unnecessary for me to make 2 trips. I guess I'll have to adjust to the "military" way of doing things. ;)

The cold front that blew in today encouraged many people to get out and look at the new fall stuff the stores have in and I was one of them. I got 4 cute long sleeve tops and actually had fun trying them on. In fact, I ended up getting everything I tried on! Amazing!

And I have a job interview on Tuesday that looks promising. I really hope I get it more than the others I have applied for because I won't have to talk to customers and it's more active, which will help with getting in shape. I think the odds are pretty good since they already had me fill out all of the hiring paperwork. The process feels like a funnel, not a filter. The guy on the phone even told me all about what would happen after the interview and how long it would be before I would get started. I'm so excited. I'd really like to have a job again. I've never had such a hard time getting a job; I blame the economy. ;)
