LapDay 1 month plus 5 and The Economy
So today is a New Day. Yesterday I and my entire dept was essentially shit canned. Gioia hates that I use that terminology to describe it but that's what happend. We were all fired. let go. right sized. where to begin? Angry? haven't gotten there yet. Shock? a little bit still. Scared/Worried? Yes. already started sending out emails to friends at BMW and Mercedes and photo vendors. I got severance but it's not enough. I have a 9 month old son for crying out loud. I will find a job. And looking back now, I am so glad that I had the surgery before this all went down. On January 19th, I weighed in at 350 lbs. Today, I weigh 301.6 pounds. and my first band tightening is today. New day, new Jan Marc.
