Back to the diet grindstone...

Well, its time to say goodbye to the old, and hello to the new. Yep, the time has come to hang up the chocolate wrappers, and move on to the salad box. My tenure at the chocolate company is over. After 9 months, my dream run of endless chocolate has come to a close....I coulda had baby in that time!

So, now I start my new job today, I had better do so with a salad for lunch. As I am unfamiliar with the lunch room set up, this has the added advantage of making sure I get lunch in the absence of a microwave. I do have my huge travel mug though and a box of hot chocolate....low fat of course....

I have to admit I am nervous about my new job. It is a big challenge. Lots of new tasks and professionally speaking, it will be a huge step forward. But that also means probably extended hours for less pay. I am working on that one...

My sendoff from the chocolate company was lovely. I didn't realise how much I was appreciated. When the state manager says he tried to keep me (in those words) it is a boost to the old ego. I was given marble cheesecake and chocolate mud cake (my two favourites), a bag of goodies (lots of loose chocolate and a 600g box of Favourites), and also a beautiful bunch of pink tulips in a glass vase. Very nice. All day people were coming up to wish me well and give me a hug.

But I would love to be a fly on the wall...my replacement is a model. I will admit, a somewhat cluey one, but the reception desk will be quite a busy spot for a while now....haha.

A model what? Aeroplane? Yes, the reps will probably find a lot of excuses to go by there for a while. Anyway, hope you settle into the new set up well. Good luck.

Definately not an aeroplane. But a sure eye opener anyway. One look and one just knows...I think I would have more respect if the skirt wasn't so short...

Good luck with the new job... It might be good to be away from the Chocky.... I've read most of your blog entries... and it seems like the chocolate was holding back your weight loss... but you knew that !! :)

Hope all is going well.
