Day 1 after nearly 1 year hiatus

Friday, April 21, 2017

With everything that had been happening in my life in the last year I decided that I just did not have time to make time for myself. to my surprise I started the day by weighing myself and I have lost 3 lbs in the last year. I have no idea what kind of see saw the weight has been on since mom got sick and my husband was in his car accident however I still feel accomplished because it went in the right direction. Not as much as would actually be possible but I decided it was time for me to get back on track. step one was weighing myself and get to walking again. now next step is to get rid of the pepsi. I know that I am going to have withdrawals with that one so it is going to be a day of a headache I am sure. it is not the first time I have done this. 70 lbs lost with 50 lbs to go. I can do this and will do it this time. It as been a long journey with many twists and turns but as long as I never give up I am ok.

    Thank you Mrsb1930 and Kelliebean. yes it has been a year of a lot. mom got very sick, has dementia and with a heavy heart I have had to place her in a long term facility because it was getting too big even for me especially after my husband was in his car accident and was pretty broken up with multiple surgeries. was in a wheel chair up till about a week ago when he started to use the walker at times. he still uses his wheel chair a lot but is starting to stand and walk more. He is very supportive of me wanting to get healthy though so that helps.

    You've had a lot on your plate. I hope things are calming down so you can take care of yourself. You won't be any use to anyone if you run yourself into the ground.

    It took me some time to break my soda habit. I always kept water nearby when I had my pepsi.... a sip of pepsi, a sip of water, repeat. It got to be that I became filled up with the combination that I drank less and less pepsi.

    Good luck to you. Have a great weekend!
