A Fun Survey and Other Stuff

Tomorrow is my 2nd weigh in and I am an absolute nervous wreck.  Jenny craig is so freakin expensive and I've rationalized that if it works it's worth it BUT what if it doesn't?  Should I just quit?  I am on a 4 week free trial through my insurance (just pay the ridiculous amount for food) but after that I have to fork over the big bucks for a membership.  It's a huge investment to make, money that could be going in my retirement account or mini-me's college account, ya know?  Decisions decisions.  I feel sick worrying this week wasn't worth it and I won't lose any.  Ugh.

On to fun stuff.  I stole this survey from a very cool blog Beer, Dogs and Getting Healthier.  Here we go:

1. What is your occupation right now?
I am a SAHM/semi-retired/unemployed/a consultant.  My chosen profession is human resource management in which I was a Director of HR for a large paper manufacturer, a credit union, and HVAC Distributor and a candle company before moving to Missouri last year.  I am now a SAHM and occassional consultant to keep my toe in the water of HR.  I write resumes for individulas directly or through their company downsizing efforts I also act as a small employer's HR dept and do things such as worker's comp, handbooks, unemployment and training.
