Hello there. So, I've made known my desire to join the military. Been trying to lose the weight again but have stalled in progress. Least I thought I did. I haven't talked with a recruiter in a couple years. But I had the sense you could say to try again. Well, I got ahold of one. We talked on phone, and I took a practice test which I got an 80 on. So now I'm set for this Thursday to take the actual ASVAB. From there we will know. I'm only 1% over on my BMI but that's doable. He gave me tips on how to lose weight. Big one is staying away from soda, including the diet ones. Which sucks, but I got to do it. I had my last Mountain Dew today. Just to remember the taste. Even sweet teas. Basically I just got to drink water. I mean my whole thing holding me back, that I was still overweight. But I've I've seen videos of guys going in bigger than me, and how they lost the weight. In other words it will come off and I will improve on everything. Besides my weight stuff, I have to get all these papers together. I didn't know what to do though either infantry or something medical. I know I'm no mechanic. He mentioned in passing 68 whiskey, which is a combat medic. Looking it up its the equivalent to an EMT. You have to pass all the EMT stuff and things that go with it which was something I wanted to do years ago so I think I'll mention that to him that's what I'd like to do. The way he was talking on his phone to his boss it's like they would almost want me to leave in a few weeks if I pass. So...it could very well be I'm joining up soon. But Thursday will be the day to see. I've already been looking at math stuff to help with my scores. I must say... I'm excited. I am. This will be a huge leap forward and an accomplishment in my life. Lot of ways I don't know what to think. I just don't want to mess this up. So here's looking to Thursday and getting the paperwork done till then.
