Have a wonderful weekend.

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Good evening; DS went back to his house. DH & I are having a wonderful weekend.
Initially, I was upset DH went to WW and lost 4.2 pounds in one week again.
I had to say some prayers. I know men lose weight faster, but I am doing good, but my weight loss is about 1 lb a week. Sometimes not even 1 lb. Oh well, I am moving forward. We are eating clean and exercising. It is nice to have a partner that is succeeding. Any ways, I have to learn not to compare. We have different body types. DD had a HB this week. DD had another baby check up and everything is great. Have a nice weekend!

If it is not one thing, it is the other

Good Morning; Good news is that the medications that DS has been given has allowed him to actually get some sleep. He is very sleepy on the medication until it finishes loading. This week he is at home b/c he needs to be monitored. His doctor said that this may be a month process. Some how he needs to see a lawyer for this legal case about his daughter. I went to my counselor and talked with her about what is happening. She says your DS does not get a break and either do you. She says he needs these meds for his well being. He needs to continue with the process his doctor has set up. You have worked very hard finding a doctor and supporting him get help. He is now ready to receive it and this needs to continue. You and your husband need to work the legal end- find a lawyer and be there in the room when the discussion happens. He can not do this on his own right now. My program is in tact, but I get tired of always being the one to take over when needed. I guess I am a little down. I will go to the gym today. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    All I can say is I don't blame you for being weary with it all, but glad that you are going to the gym. Physical activity always helps me work through stressful times. Glad you have the support of your therapist as well. That's a huge blessing.

Even though life is complicated- there is positive

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Good Morning; Had an episode with DS yesterday. He had a doctor appt. He was afraid that this doctor did not understand him. He wanted me to go with him. I knew that at some point; DS must go through the door alone. I have many scheduled events and appts this summer and fall I can not always stop and cancel. I am much happier when I have a personal life independent of being a caretaker. I feel at my age it is my time to put me first. I told DS that I had an appt I could not change. He was here at the house thinking I would break down and take him. My DH really came through, he drove him to his house and told him to go to the appt. His job now is to get better. DS actually went to the appt on his own. The doctor was wonderful! DS had a good experience. He is being treated with respect!! Finally, we all have hope. I am taking care of myself - losing weight and exercising. These small victories are so positive for me and my family. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Nancy, it is not easy to form the words NO but good for you that you have your "line in the sand" and are taking care of YOU. It feels good to be needed, but in the end we need ourselves, too!

And in the end, your DS went, had a good experience, and that was needed for him to feel success! KUDOS!

That's good that your DH supported you and jumped in as well! That's a big thing!

Had wonderful weekend

Monday, July 07, 2014

Good Morning; I had planned this past weekend for my DH's birthday. I took him to a ball game of his favorite team. We walked every where and actually ate very well.
I tracked both food and exercise. I got in 16,000 steps during the day. I came back and actually lost weight. I am learning to enjoy myself but to keep portions in moderation with exercise. I used to just eat whatever I wanted with no restraint. It was just for volume. This journey with food and exercise is a balancing act. One has to respect this balancing. I am grateful that the journey has been slow at times so I really learn the lesson this time. Have a good day!!

Have a wonderful 4th

Thursday, July 03, 2014

Good Morning; I am well rested. Today might be a tense day- DS is being served papers from ex about his daughter. She wants to take away his rights. DS is so tired of her harassment. DS is very uptight and will seek a lawyer. Luckily he is being served in a town where the police are well aware of what some women can do to soldiers. they told DS where to contact a lawyer who helps soldiers. I just hope the lawyer is not on vacation. Ex says she is getting married and doesn't want DS a part of his daughters life. Any ways, DH has lost 6 lbs in one week. He has gotten really extreme in his weight journey. he is not eating much and skipping meals. He has not been this low in 10 years. I am doing well. I do not lose weight that fast at all. I am doing good. I am at my lowest in quite a while, but I still have more to go. Have a wonderful weekend!!! emoticon emoticon
