It's been a long while now since I've done any posting or even kept up with much of anything on here. Kinda been a bumpy ride first part of year, but never truly left my mind all the progress I'd made and all the setbacks as well. A combination of things caused that but got through alright and I know I can do this now so that's all that matters.
My setback caused me to gain back 20 lbs or so back on so I have a long way to go to even get to my goal now.
Part of my setbacks had been my husband had been out of work for quite some time and that really just made it difficult. Trying to feed so many people just didn't allow me to focus on what I needed to eat myself. During those times you just have to go as cheap as you can. And of course exercise just went right out the door along with it. It just seemed like well who cares I'm not getting anywhere anyways so why bother. I had a member of my family really just making me miserable that also didn't help. When I didn't think things could get any worse we received in mail foreclosure papers for our landlord so that meant moving AGAIN. I hate moving.
An amazing thing happened though during all this and I honestly believe this probably our turning point. My husband found God. That is something in itself. Oh he started out saying I am going to go to church with you, but don't expect me to change. Which was fine by me, because it isn't you who makes the change if your heart is open...it's God who makes those changes. And he certainly did. It really brought a change to us in how we dealt with what was going on around us.
The Pastor at our church has been awesome and it's just been an all around great experience for both of us. 2 weeks after my husbands "change" I asked the Pastor if he'd please pray that something breaks soon in my husband's searching. A couple days later, my husband changed his ringtone on phone to a christian tone and no sooner than he'd done that it rings. HE HAD A JOB!
We also got moved into new house the first of March and I enjoy this place.
Tuesday my "extra family member" moved out and to be honest the minute he left it was like a lot of stress lifted there. A lot of issues had taken place with him and it was for the best.
And so here I am today, starting over once again with SP and at least this time around I believe I'll attain my goal I originally started back in 2008.
After all...I've gained a whole lot since then and not in weight (even though I did gain) but in a healthier knowledge of life in general and where to place my trust at.
