Wow this fat fast has really helped jumpstart me. I did not expect this and even during TOM. Honestly, I was happy with the rate of my weight loss and had already made my goal for January and was pleased. I am almost at goal for February too (with nearly a 10# loss this month alone). If the Fat Fast continues the way it has then by the time the 31st rolls in I believe I will be at that 10# loss and will have already made my February goal before February actually starts. That is NICE. I am so close to Onederland and cannot believe it.

Superbowl party this weekend. I am making Wings (lots of them because my nephew loves them and not sure how many people will be there). I am also making my taco dip and buffalo chicken dip. I will bring some of my low carb chips and some celery in case I want some dips. Will probably bring a couple of low carb beers just in case, as well.

So update on my daughter...she is going to MEPS Monday for first round of processing. I am really praying that they offer her a job that she is interested in. We have been over them and she really only wants Corpsman or Cryptologic so we will see.

I hope you all have a great day.

JAIME!!! SO VERY PROUD OF YOU. You have done an amazing job losing weight this month. You've stuck with it through thick and thin and see what it's gotten you?? Most of next months goals too! Give yourself a huge pat on the back and a hug too. As for your daughter, I hope they offer her what she wants! I'll bet they do!! I'd have to let it be known that those were the two jobs I was looking for if I were her. Hopefully good things come. So far they have been fairly good to her.

Great job, Jaime! My fingers are crossed for your daughter and getting offered the job that she wants.

Thanks y'all! I appreciate it. She has a list of the jobs she wants. She knows what 'c' schools she is interested in if she gets Corpsman. I believe we can meet her at MEPS when it is time to meet with the PNC about jobs. DH will be great discussing these since he finished up his enlistment recruiting (after his injury took him out of the field). He has been on her back hard, but he wants her to go in there informed and having done some of the research herself and not depend on us to inform her. LOL...if she ever has to get interrogated she should hold up well since she has endured interrogation from an Ex Navy SEAL....LOL!!!!!!!!

Congratulations to you! Your daughter wants cryptologic? My Dad made his career in the NSA as a crypto - was just entered into NSA's Wall of Honor, posthumously unfortunately. Fascinating field even though he couldn't talk much about what he did. If she's ever in MD, tell her to visit the Ft. Meade Crypto Museum. It's fabulous.

Elizabeth E what an honor for your Dad, and you as his daughter. Yes, although she works in healthcare and said all along that is all she would take she has found crypto fascinating. She did the 10 question sample test on the Navy website for DLAB and got 10 of 10. She has always picked up languages easily so hopefully that may be an option for her. I will let her know (and keep it in mind myself) the Ft. Meade Museam, thanks!

Jaime, congrats on being a month ahead of yourself! lol It's always nice to have a cushion that isn't a fat one! re:your daughter - my bestie's son went through last year. He assiduously studied the postings until he found exactly what he wanted. He had tested out way high so he made the most of that. One of his gifts found in the testing was visual acuity so cartography for special ops was a good niche choice. Of course, it has a fancier name I can't remember. But I went to his Basic graduation in SC this summer before he headed to Arizona to do the school for his specialty. Wow and just wow. A happy young man. Best wishes to your daughter and let your husband help her. The recruiters don't always have the best goals for kids.
