Returning from the Great Fat Beyond

Friday, April 24, 2009

SO wow a lot has changed in my life since I was last here.
My husband left me 6 weeks ago so I am now a single mother.
I met a walking partner and we have been trying to walk almost daily.
I gained a lot of weight (184!) and then lost a lot (168!) and am now back up to 173 as of yesterday (though I think salt and AF around the corner have a lot to do with that).
I have made a resolve to eat no fast food until June 1st. It has only been a few days and though I haven't had any fast food I am wondering if I should extend that to mean no junk food! I am thinking perhaps I should.
I am going to try to walk 5 days a week for at least 30-60 minutes and all of my walks so far have been over an hour and over 8km. (4 walks)
I missed yesterday which means I can't miss today. I will have to do something active.
I am confused about the situation with my husband. He makes it clear its over...then does things that make me wonder. For all accounts and purposes its over - I mean even if he decided tomorrow he is over this whole walking out thing it would mean counselling and time before I would let him back into the house etc. I don't know if that would ever happen though.

Anyways...I am trying to get healthier and get some more confidence. I am back to a size 12 (yay!) and starting to feel better about myself. My life is a mess so I'm trying to find solace in routine that I can't find in financial and emotional stability! LOL
I hope you're all with me because this may be one heck of a ride.

    You seem to have a good handle on things. Keep your chin up. One of my favorite sayings is "When God closes one door he opens another" Maybe this is a new stage in your life and it will only get better from here. Good Luck, emoticon
