"Life is happening now, not 10 lbs from now." - Indy Girl

Do I really want to start over and plow thru the emotional pain that caused my weight gain, and my procrastination with goals well intended? Do I have the energy to pull it together, to hold it together and stop worrying about the "yeah but's"... Do I want to stop giving the past over to my present? Do I want to find my true identity, not the one I was told I was. Hell yeah! My fight is back, not for my past but for my future. Am I scared? You bet.

So sorry to hear about your chicken! Hope all is well with you. Things are good with me. Just working and trying to stick to a smart eating plan. Getting ready to workout now and then grab a bite to eat with my husband. We had some beautiful weather and now getting a little rain. Take care!

Thanks so very much for the new running shoes. I could use a new pair! I am ready to start walking again now that the lovely Spring weather has arrived.
I send you hugs, and thanks!!

Thank you so very much for taking time to not only read my blog but to also respond to it in such a thoughtful way. Your links are appreciated and I will check into all that you have shared. Right now I am doing OK, although some days are tougher than others. My DH and I have no children, (well, except for our six cats ... and they are definitely our children), so at least this is not affecting even more people than it already is. My DH, BTW, knows that family comes first and that we have to take care of our parents. I helped with both his Mom and Dad who passed away a number of years ago ... each from cancer. He knows that I am doing what I have to do and supports me in every way that he can.

Anyway, I have contacted a nursing home, the very best one that I could find in our town and have talked to Mom's Dr about all of the procedures. I am also in contact and on a first name basis with the head of our local Alzheimer's Association and it helps to have the extra resources, especially when I REALLY need to vent. emoticon

There are so many of us out here and believe me when I say that I know of much worse situations than I am going through, even though this is truly a living hell most days. I know of wives taking care of husbands, for example ... husbands who are only 50 years old and who have dementia (there's 4 in the support group I attend on occasion). And the depression that these gals suffer as caregivers, well ..... I understand only from my own experience, but mine is taking care of my 89-year-old Mom - not a spouse! It's hard to imagine!

Well, thanks again for all that you have shared, including your support.
It truly is much appreciated!
