*** Note Quick Update *** Cleveland was a bust! The client pulled my contract after just a few weeks so I came back to MD for a minute to regroup and rethink. It was a real let down but nothing I did so I don’t feel bad. The firm I was working for was so upset with their client they paid me the full rate that they were charging the client to try and make up for it. Oh well such is the life of a contractor but keep your fingers crossed and the prayers flowing for me. Thanks guys.
Ok here it is! I wanted to let the family know I am leaving Maryland on November 1, 2010. I will be moving to Delaware not far from my big brother John H Arrington III later in November as a permanent move but more importantly and just before that I will be heading out on the road to work in Strongsville, Oh which is a suburb of Cleveland at the same time. I was originally headed to Tempe, AZ and the warmer weather would have been more than welcomed but the money in Cleveland was too good to pass up as I really have some things I need to get accomplished in the next year.
Many things in my life have changed dramatically over the last year or so but I think the changes are all for the good. I have a new lady in my life and we are planning our lives together.
I have settled a number of old items that were just hanging on in my life and have started working on me. I have lost almost two hundred pounds, gotten immensely healthier, and just in general I am a better me. See the shots below. The first shot is me almost two years ago and almost two hundred pounds larger for Thanksgiving 2008. The second is me over a year ago and still over a hundred pounds heavier, the third is me during the summer while I was loosing weight at about 360 and the last shot is just a month ago at 300 lbs. since that time I have continued to lose weight and right now I am just under 300 lbs. I”m still no small man but I feel so much better.
Well anyways fam, I’m on the way to the Cleveland area and I hope one and all will keep me in their prayers as I once again embark upon a new journey. To the family in the Cleveland area watch out I’m on the way! LOL! Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s connect!
Love you all!
