Pretty much back to the drawing board for me. Since Sept 2015 I have let stresses of life to take control over me, and I am back up 20 pounds. Stress eating is way out of control. I can and will get back on track I have the tools knowledge to make it all happen again.

Let me explain a little of what happened. I knew full well what I was getting into marrying someone who was so sick. Long story short my husband ended up on life support back in Sept 2015. (we married May 2014). In Nov I had to make the hard decision to shut life support off of my husband as he was only gettign worst. Now I am trying get my life back to something similiar to normal.

I am a disable veteran. I was a very active person before the marriage, going to gym at least 5 days a week, zumba classes.

II have been using a Jawbone up24 for 2 weeks now and loving it.

Well nothing much else ot say.

    Thanks so much for the goodie, the welcome, and the compliment about my dog! She's the love of my life! I know that boredom eating is the number one reason I struggle with my weight so much, so I'm looking for ideas and inspiration! :)
