Ohno? Oh yes.

We are Ohno Design.
Welcome to my 21st weigh-in day.

My weight stayed exactly the same.

I’m not gonna beat myself up, though, considering I have been sick and hadn’t been on the treadmill since my abbreviated walk Wednesday.

I’m still fighting off the last of this cold, but my lungs felt pretty good during my 3 miles this morning, and my legs felt great.

I’m pretty tired of hovering at this weight, so here’s hoping I get the scale moving downward again starting this week.

By the way, I start my new job today at Ohno Design!

Ohno is owned by my former Flint Journal co-worker Michael Robb and his wife, Tammie.

Pictured with me here are Michael, Tammie and Ohno designer Alan Garcia, another newspaper refugee.

I’ve done freelance writing for them for about a year and a half, but getting to go to work full time with them is a dream come true.

We’ve talked about the possibility of me doing this for several months, so I’m just thrilled that business has grown so much that it’s now a reality.

I’m stoked for several reasons.

I love the diversity of their client base. I’ll be writing about many different business types, and that will keep me on my toes.

I love how much they care about their clients, and how local the business is. I think I’ll start to feel like a part of this community in a way I haven’t been able to so far.

I love how much faith they have in me, and how they want me to try as many new things as I want. I’ll get to do some Web programming and even sales calls.

I love that I am on the ground floor of something that I believe in with my soul. I feel great about it.

I love that the success of this small company is completely dependent on how hard we work. I have that much faith in myself and in them.

I love Michael and Tammie.

Today is the start of another leg of my adventure. I’m so glad you’re here with me.
