I did it

Wow its been a long time since I wrote a blog. Guess I have been saving you all.
My family has been through a lot of grief and stress since last August. As you probably know, 3 deaths in the immediate family within 3 weeks, a divorce with our kids, our grandkids having difficulties with this, my daughter getting remarried and the kids having to move, change schools and adjust. And this year a flood in my MIL's mobile home that we are trying to sell since her death and tons of difficulties over FIL's estate with his wife. Add to that last week my BIL almost died after having routine surgery and ending up with a blood transfusion and 3 total surgeries (he is ok now) and DH's youngest bro having kidney cancer surgery next week.
So since I did not have time to organize my time, prepare proper meals or breathe (I have also been watching DGDs 3X week and working 2 nights a week. I put back on 25 lbs. Not because I didn't know what to do but I didn't have time to do it.
Well for the last 10 weeks we have been in a "Biggest Loser" contest at my gym. I was determined to let this get no further. Today was the final weigh-in day. I lost 23 lbs in that 10 weeks
I am now 2 lbs from where I need to be and am super stoked about that.
The bonus is that I won the contest and $150.00. So I am thinking about whether to treat myself to something or use it for DH and my 34th anniversary which is coming up on the 9th of April. He would be good either way. He knows I worked hard to do this.
