Something you might not know about me is that …
       when I was in my 20’s I always wanted to take off to Alaska and work in a Cannery. Well 20 years latter and $45,000 in debt I made that dream come true. In 2007 I headed up the Case-up department. Basically I was in charge of the the freezer and shipping departments. This all consuming job was so stressful and taxed every bone in my body. When the summer was over I had such pride in what I had accomplished but during the ordeal I didn’t think I was going to make it. I quit so many times in my head but I stuck it out and actually lost 20 pounds.

This summer I am going to chase after another dream from my 20’s. I want to be a Flagger. That’s right I want to stand on the side of the road and Stop traffic. I just got certified and I’ll start looking for my summer job this next week.

  1. Looks like you did pretty well overall – congrats!


    • Thanks Lori. I can’t believe how quickly 10 weeks have past. Hurray for Spring Break 🙂


  2. Hey Shelli! Good luck with your biggest loser week!!! I’ll bet you’re stoked! I don’t have a week off, but I do have next Wed off. I think I’ll make that a ‘last chance workout’ day. LOL. Thanks for all your encouragement on my blog, I really appreciate it.

    That cannery experience sure does sound fascinating!


  3. We made it to the end of 10 weeks! You did well on your goals.
    A canner and a flagger! Hey, I hear that flagger job is dangerous… I hope it pays well! You’ll have to post about it later and tell us all the details.

  6. Great job on finishing the challenge. You did a fabulous job with your goals!
