Missed blogging and reading-that is why I'm blogging 3 times today-I'm trying to reconnect to my blog family community.
After the craziness of the last couple of months/weeks, I'm getting recognition for my work and was offered a transfer/promotion of sorts to be a Principal in another consulting group within our firm...flattering...I'm not sure that I want the added pressure right now since my kids are young but still it was nice to be recognized and asked by someone I respected.
Regardless, its still a great NSV because one of the reasons I got the band was for my career. I perceived the weight as a handicap in my field where personal presentation is so critical. I make a lot of presentations/pitch ideas. I felt really stifled by my weight and my inability to control my escalating weight. I don't feel that way anymore and that is a great NSV. I never felt unsuccessful but I felt really inhibited about my weight and that the way I felt about myself was really undermining my confidence and showing. I am so thankful that the band because I feel that my true skills and talents can emerge more directly without being masked by my appearance.
Thanks for listening.
