Saying "I lost 56lbs" just doesn't have the same impact as a side by side comparison 56lbs later!
I'm starting over! I have 2 kids, 19yo DS, and 11yo DD who has autism. Right now I feel overwhelmed with some things going on in my life but I CAN control how I react to it all! I feel I'm finally making good choices about myself, my life, and my kids and I won't let any forces that are out of my control set me back... even though they're trying really, REALLY hard lately!
I want to be fit and feel good. I want to feel healthy and energetic as well as feel as though I look AMAZING in a bikini!
I am walking 1 mile in the mornings 4-7 days per week (weather, time, and health permitting). I am exercising at home. I am monitoring my food choices and, whenever possible, carefully measuring portions and ALWAYS recording what I consume!
I am a recently-single mom of 2. Even though I'm still not legally divorced, I am ready to move on with my life as a single woman. I have no interest in looking for a relationship but I am starting to be interested in meeting new people, increasing my circle of RL friends, and maybe going on a date!
It's all or nothing
And nothing's all I ever get
Ev'ry time I turn it on,
I burn it up and burn it out
It's always something
There's always something going wrong
That's the only guarantee,
that's what this is all about

For the Record, Yogurt tastes the exact same way to me. lol My kids will eat the kids yogurt junk, I've been known to be okay with Trix Yogurt, but I just can't get into the "adult" yogurts. I thought the candy would make it better. I was clealy wrong. It just tasted like my M&M's went bad. lol

Thank you once again! yes, the school knows about the loss of my Keegan's Pops but I am not sure they understand the impact it has had on him. I know it is part of the problem and he just can't explain. Last night while sitting on the steps he kept holding the chain and St. Christopher's medal that his Pop's always wore and that I wear now. That told me that he is missing Ed terribly. I promised that when he grows up and can take care of himself and I am with his Pops that he can have the chain and medal. He hugged me tightly then! Thank you so much!

Glad that you are getting into a routine! It is hto maintain routines when kids are home from school! Thank you for again reading my blog and for commenting. I know from your comment that you won't think that I am crazy when I tell you that Ed woke me one morning a month or more ago. I distinctly heard him call me by the nickname he had for me and felt his hands on me side. He was also with me on New year's Eve. I felt his hands on my shoulders the way he put them when he came up behind me or stood behind me. I also had a dream about a month after he was gone about a party downstairs. My friend had a dream of the same kind about the same time after her husband died. She had also tried to tell me that Ed was going to die in October, that her husband had come back and told her that he would be here to guide Ed when he left. I have had few contacts with others who have died but dreamt about my parents and grandparents just before Ed died also. Before my grandfather died my grandmother came to me in a dream and told me that she was coming for him. He died a day before her birthday. So, I believe that it is very possible that Ed is here often and probablyu tries to comfort me. I think that he might have prompted an e-mail from someone he knew in 1959-1960 and whom we had never before heard from. I answered the e-mail and told him that Ed had passed away and haven't heard from him again but it was only a few days ago that I got the e-mail. I found it very strange unless Ed had prompted the man to contact me.
