Starting over

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

I haven't been here most of the summer. It's been difficult and I have just blown all the good hard work I did last year. Well, not all of it but 15 lbs worth. It has made me very sad and I know what I need to do to get back.

I gave myself until yesterday. Monday, I started back. I am charting everything I eat. I have walked the lake every day. I need to do this for me. I actually got to within 5 lbs of my goal weight and blew it.

I know, I know, I can't beat myself up over this. Everyone falls but I really thought I had it conquered. Apparently not. I feel so fat. My clothes are tight and it's very hard to not be angry with myself. I'm trying because being angry gets me nowhere but still........

Will have lots of veggies for dinner tonight. I'm staying within my calorie range and will not fail. I am leaving for So. American at the end of October for vacation with a girlfriend. It's going to be a wonderful trip and hopefully I can at least drop 5 or 6 lbs by then.

I shall not fail!!!

Time rushes by!

Saturday, July 18, 2009

It's been a while since I've blogged. I have been so busy it's hard to just keep up with myself.

Yesterday I came home from orientation at the University of Delaware. My daughter will be attending there starting next month. How did that happen? She was just toddling around the house giving me instructions a week ago, wasn't she?

It was very difficult for me I hate to admit. They immediately separated the parents from the kids and we had an entire days worth of information and such. There were times it took every ounce of strength not to burst into tears. This is going to be hard. My child has grown up and is leaving me. Honestly, it's shocking.

My beautiful daughter was amazing. She went off and selected her courses, met with advisers and did everything she needed to do. I could tell she was a little nervous but all in all, just fine (way better than her mom, but she didn't know that!)

Time goes by so fast. I feel like my son just left for camp and tomorrow is visiting day! How can we slow this stuff down????

On a little sadder note, I gained some weight. With all that has been going on in my life I wasn't paying attention and now I'm paying the price. 12 pounds of price. I'm taking action. I've been back on track and have already lost 3 of them. If I stay the course I will be back in the 120's by the first visiting day at college.

This isn't easy all around but as they say, this too shall pass. Life goes on and I'm trying to march along with it. I am posting some new pics from my son's Bar Mitzvah. Please, take a look!

Enjoy your summer!

    Gayllynne, I can so feel for you. I know I will suffer great separation anxiety too. As my son is becoming more independent it is harder for me not to be part of his life.

As for the weight gain, it happens when your life gets out of control due to lack of routine/normal day to day stuff. You have been busy with so many major events in your children's lives and having all your family around to share in these milestones.

You have done it before and will do it again.

Hugs, Sonia
