Dec. BSG Challenge WK 1 The Toughest Thing to Over come this year 2012
Thursday, December 06, 2012
This was a no brainer for me. The hardest thing I have had to over come this year was the death of my husband, Ray. We all know that losing someone close to you makes life different. When you have been married like I was for 23 years. Waking up and finding the spouse that you have been through the good times and the bad times with is no longer there. You feel like there is a hole in your life. I walked around in a fog from March to June. Keeping myself busy with friends and the two orginizations that I belong to and Spark. I didn't lose any weight be exact I gained most of the weight back I had lost back. The worst was when I got sick with the flu and then my doctor diagnosed me with depression.
After putting me on a mild anti-deppressant three things happened that changed my world. My deppression was under control, exercising became more important, and I found a church home. All three of things have been a big help. Actually finding a church helped bring the other two things back into perspective. I am now walking longer distances, and my faith has helped me clear the dark fog of deppression. I had been suffering from. All of that weight I had gained back is gone, I am at the lowest weight since I started 4 years ago.
I owe a huge
to all my Spark Friends for their love and support during my darkest hours. All of you are very important to me.
