My life and it's new direction.....

Monday, February 01, 2010

If you are a friend of mine you probably know what I have been going through these past few months. If not, the short version is:

1. My husband of 14 years has been cheating on me for the past 6 months.
2. He had both his wife and girlfriend at the same time for those 6 months.
3. He left me and the kids in Dec. only to return for 3 weeks.
4. He is living with his "girlfriend" ( I use that term girl loosely).
5. I filed for divorce last week

So, without getting into the gory details that is my life these past 2-3 months.

Before any of this happened I weighed in right around 205 (210 according to my Dr. but we all know how those scales lie!) LOL
Since Thanksgiving I have lost an enormous amount of weight. I weighed in this morning at 174.

That's not my exciting news though-I decided to go back to school and enroll in the nursing program. 2 years and I will be an RN and dependent on only myself. I have an appointment with the admissions department Tues. morning and am so excited!

Just wanted to share and send out a HUGE hi to all my Spark friends. Thank you all for your love and support throughout these past few months!

    WOW... I have been where you are my dear old friend and I am so happy to see that you are picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and making a wonderful plan for the future of yourself and your children... I am here for you if you need someone to talk to. I am in a bit of a transition myself and I love to have people to talk to.

    Seriously - what is with these cheating men? As horrible as this sounds, it's nice to know I am not alone - it shows me that you can go on!

    Sorry to hear about the husband issues. Been there, done that. Eventually it will get better. But the fact that you are still losing weight with that going on, great job!!

    Anne you are so strong & I know God will do what He promised & bring you & kids through this difficult time. Speaking from experience, you will be even stronger! ;) Thanks for being my friend. I know you know I am here for you.

    The nursing thing is amazing! I was in nursing school when I went through my divorce...ran out of $ & quit. I wish I hadn't now.

    You really do amaze & inspire me! Hugs!

    FYI You rock! And your info is completely wrong ... you are not average or ordinary ... you are extraordinary and an amazing friend. You are SO SO SO loved and looked up to that I hope you can feel it coming from the Forest everyday. I am so happy for you that you are deciding to pursue a career in Nursing, that is JUST where someone with your talents and dedication to others needs to be. Much love to you lady!
