I need to address some issues. I would like to thank those who have e-mailed me or left messages on my spark page, who are concerned about me.
There has been a lot of personal things going on in our lives.
Gary's Mom passed away on April 1st. We had to go to Mississippi, so the last 10 days I have been there with his sister and brother in law getting her things set, and to attend the service in memory of her life.
As some may know she lived with us for 3 years but she then moved back to MS. It has been a stressful time, being away from home and not knowing the area...this was my first trip to MS and to stay with Gary's family. Things did go as well as possible. They have a different life style than I have tried to live by but I did my best to stay on track when eating out...we ate most meals out, and as we all know no matter how much you try it's hard to watch calories and sodium....I did exercise every morning for at least 1 hour, and did watch portion size but as much as I tired i did gain weight...this is not going to stop me from getting this weight off. I am not exactly sure what my weight is but will later today when I weigh in. I am trying to keep my mind on healthy and not get to crazed about this.
The last 2 months have been over the top with stress, it was less than a month that Gary had another family member die and had to go to Oregon. I am worried about Gary and his health he is the silent type and doesn't express his sadness or anger so we still have those issues to deal with.
I am going to be strong and try to go head first in to these issues and not eat them to feel better. I also am trying no to worry about things that don't need to be worried about...I sure can borrow trouble and worry when not necessary....it's just me
so thanks again for caring about me and lets get back on track together..it is that aspect of weight loss that seems to help me the most.....doing it together..
Have a healthy week, I am back and motivated as ever.....
