Amazing trip!

I'm SO happy! Spending the weekend with my honey in New Orleans is just what we both needed! We're both committed to making it work no matter what. No one else can take his place. With him I feel safe and protected.

Since we hadn't seen each other in 9 months, you can just imagine how he felt seeing me 47 pounds lighter than the last time he saw me! He's seen progress pictures the entire time but I kept telling him it's not like seeing the change in person. He's proud of me, he loves me...and I love him!

Okay let me get to my weekly check in. I weighed myself on the scale in the fitness room at the hotel. It wasn't digital and it wasn't my normal scale but it showed me at 165. I'm figuring it was fairly accurate. I was only able to get a workout in on Saturday, well I got worked out but it wasn't in a gym smile!

Eating in Houston and New Orleans is a completely different challenge from eating in Seattle. Everything tastes so damn good! I can see how and why folks struggle with their weight in the south! I told my honey I'd have to workout 7 days a week if I lived in New Orleans...smdh! He insisted that I enjoy myself and not think about what I ate so much. I need his balance. If it were up to me, I wouldn't touch a damn thing outside of my points limits in fear of falling off the wagon. He knows that and made sure he bought me not one, but two slices of fantabulous cheesecake from the Cheesecake Bistro!

Let me get to the good stuff! I initially planned this trip to Houston to get the ball rolling on my relocation. I wanted to find out exactly what I needed to do to get my girls enrolled in school. The day before I left Seattle, I was called to schedule an interview for a position I had applied for in Houston. So last Friday I had an interview with an OB/GYN group. I currently do OB intake for an OB/GYN group in Seattle.

Anyhoo, the position available was for front desk check in. I haven't worked a front desk in awhile but I'm not above doing something I might not necessarily want to do in order to get to the next step.

The interview went well with the two ladies I met with, and I believe I sold myself as best I could! They asked me a couple of times if I was sure I wanted to work front desk, and if I preferred back office more? I was honest, laid it all out and explained that I prefer to work with the billing and insurance because I'm great at it and it's what I do now. We wrapped things up and I thanked them for bringing me in. I was told they should have their decision early in the week.

Well yesterday on my drive back from New Orleans I received a voicemail from the billing office manager stating that she'd like to ask me a few questions. I didn't meet with her on Friday so I immediately thought she was calling to talk to me about a different position in the billing department. I was RIGHT! Basically the other two ladies felt I was over qualified for the front desk but they were very impressed with me. Funny thing is that they never mentioned another position being available?

The new lady basically did a phone interview with me and explained the details of the position she is trying to fill. The position is exactly what I do in Seattle! I'm pumped because I love my job! Initially I think she was concerned with me still being in Seattle but I made it very clear if the position is offered to me (and the money is right) I will make it work and can be moved to Houston sooner than I initially anticipated.

I should know something by the end of the week! Y'all keep me in your prayers, things seem to be falling right in line! This isn't an easy transition for me because I have my girls to think about as well. I've prayed about this move and everything in me tells me it's the right time. Sometimes God dreams bigger dreams for us than we ever could've for ourselves. I believe that and I know everything will be alright! Thanks for taking this ride with me!

PS- I hate to drive and I drove from Houston to New Orleans all by myself! This is the longest distance I've ever driven, yay me!
