What a year it has been. I have been lax in posting or even sparking and that changes today.
Alot of bad has happened so far this year, but it was temporary and it has gotten better in some areas.
Worse in others.
My son had surgery, took a turn for bad and had to be put in ICU for 2 days and had to have 6 units of blood.
But he recovered and went on to success, starting his own delivery business during this pandemic.
As for me. I did a very painful thing this morning.
It was an eye opening moment and then I came on SP and marked it down.
I have gained 18 pounds since the first of the year and it ends today!!
I just let everything go and just ate whatever I wanted and too much of it.
But life will return us society one day soon, and this has to end. I have put off doctors appts because I didnt want to face the truth.
It has been like a permanent vacation and I have just got to get back into a routine.
I am sure I am not alone.
But sometimes it feels like it....I feel like I am lost. I HAVE to find my way back.

    Wow! I’m happy to hear about your son’s rebound - I’m still anxiously “hovering” as mine (21) figures out what path he’ll take in life...
    I was a little discouraged when I stopped by yesterday to find him playing Minecraft - I asked, “Didn’t you outgrow this game 10 or 12 yrs ago??”
    And I am also discouraged that I’ve gained a good solid 10 from back during holiday season - while I’ve peeled off 5, I seem to be firmly stuck on another plateau (not to mention I could stand to lose a LOT more than 5 lbs, but I’m breaking things down into small increments so it doesn’t seem insurmountable!)
    Hang in there honey!
