Coming Back to Life

I'm a widow who has really let herself go. My husband died suddenly 4 years ago and I haven't wanted to live since then. I have tried to fill the empty spot in my heart with food and all it has done is made me more miserable. I have gained over 100 pounds since he passed.

I got married when I was 45 and we had nly been married about 3 years. I have 3 cats who make sure I get up and get moving every day.

I just got out of the hospital a few days ago after suffering from 2 pulmonary embolisms. I kind of had an epiphany in the hospital and decided I wanted to change my life. My faith is strong and I know that God will see me thru this journey.

February is another one of those months when stores create magical candy-filled displays. Inside those foil-covered heart-shaped boxes festooned with lace, ribbons and fake flowers are chocolates that have been rattling around in their cardboard container since October--and they taste like it.

Treat yourself to something sweet and delicious that tastes like real food--crisp apples, juicy grapes, fresh pineapple, or a perfectly ripened pear. Just say no to cardboard.

Do the holiday things that make you happy and give yourself permission to let go of one or two of your most-dreaded holiday tasks.

Peace in this season of celebration,
Marjimac

I truly believe cats do us humans such a good thing, keeping us up and at 'em every day. My outdoor cats sling themselves on the storm door if I am late getting out to feed them. Certain ones 'need' to be picked up and talked to, others have their little routines of greetings. I have six big boys so have to get up and tend them before much else.

I hope you are doing well. Your story touched my heart.

Aww. You're very welcome hon.

I just finished week 1 on my low carb diet & some exercise. I only did planned exercise 3 times this week for 1hr, and I jumped on the scales and cringed just thinking about my fat intake & 1 cheat day this week. I was eating around 90g of fat per day when I first did low carb with improved blood test results overall so I knew it was safe. After reading some low-carb forums on why I seemed to be losing weight slowly compared to others when I first tried it, I was told that I needed to up my fat intake, stop counting calories & only count net grams of carbs. The motto was, eat fat to lose fat. So I upped my fat intake to around 140g, aiming for at least 155g. I jumped on the scales today & was surprised to find I'd lost 5kgs lol. I put on 8 kgs in the space of 2 months and have just removed 5 of the 8kgs in one week. Very pleased :D

Anyway doll, just checking in to see how things are going with your journey. Hope you're doing well. xx
