hey guys i hope everyone is doing great. well i did get my lapband sept 29 and since then from 319 i now weigh 286 im so proud of myself. Anywho i am currently looking for a job to better myself and my one yr old son. how ever now everywhere i look to apply something that takes my interest they require a degree of some sort. I personally dont much work experience except at daycares thats it. well im very interested in working at a police department inputing information on to the computer. maybe working at a courthouse or something. or maybe perhaps i can go to school. im not into the whole community college different class thing. im wondering if theres a school i can attend that i can learn some basics or what not. i am in public assistance and i think its time to give some one else a chance and little by little get off the help. i really want to do things on my own im getting my confidence back and im starting to feel like a new person little by little =] any help would be appriciated. or maybe any ideas on employment that dont require much i need to work for my son. thanks in advanced guys godbless and good luck with your bands or the band process. I LOVE MY BAND

Congratulations on making such great steps to improve your life and to set a good example for your son. I would suggest that you work on your punctuation and grammar to improve your employability. I hope you find something soon.

Public assistance offers free classes in language, GED, looking for jobs that suit your education and experience. I would start there. Start writing your resume and get help with your grammar and punctuation. Best of luck!
