IT'S BEEN A WHILE, I'M STILL HERE!!!

Saturday, June 09, 2012

Hey everyone, I'm still here! It's been a while since I have given you all an update. School, work, kids, family, death in family, life is going on with me! SO busy it's not even funny! However I did complete my goal to jog/walk my 5K I signed up for. I finished it on May 19, 2012 and I actually jogged longer than I thought I was going too. I will post pictures later this week. I am going to do another one some time in the future. I will train for it next time, and make sure I stretch as well. I forgot to time it as well, but Oh well it was the first one. I will be ready next time.
Neways I recently lost my grandmother last month, and it was very difficult for me. I stopped going to gym and begin eating to suppress my feelings, my hurt, my pain. I just hate dealing with death period! It took me 4 weeks to get myself back together, I even had to get seen and for the first time in life I'm taking antidepressants. I am still not sure if they will help, but it was worth a try. I just started going back to gym this week. It was very difficult walking in there after all this time and basically starting over. I will go again tonight and just take it one day at a time. My body was sore after I went, and I was hurting all over the place. Even with all this going on, Thank God I didn't gain nothing but 2 pounds. I was upset that its been over 2 to 3 months and weight is still the same. I have came to conclusion that the sweet teas I drink and the candy I treat myself too has to go. So I am in a size 18, and weighing about 242 last time I checked.

So still in school, finals are in 2 weeks, so I am trying to get as much studying done as possible. Wish me luck. I will need it for sure. Hope everyone else is doing great. Hang in there and whatever you do Don't give up!!

Until next month, God bless US all!

    I'm sorry about your grandmother. Dealing with death is just plain hard. When my dear grandpap passed in 1991 at 93, all I could think is "It's the end of an era." It really rocked my world.

    I take comfort in that he, his thoughts, words and love live on in me as your grandmother does in you.

    Also 18 months ago, a 'perfect storm' (as my therapist puts it)of bad stuff happened to me. By the grace of God, I did have the courage to reach out and get professional help and that included anti-depressants. God, our families (and we too!) want us to be happy and well. If that involves therapy and 'good drugs', so be it.

    I'm Glad you posted.

    Take Care~

    Sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing. I pray that you find comfort from all the wonderful memories of her.
    Be so very proud that you recognized that you needed help and that you stopped your emotional eating and got back on track so quickly. Life happens but our new skills of handling it are what is important
