Still hanging in there ...
Monday, August 20, 2012
I haven't been blogging much lately. Have been having some MAJOR issues here at home with my 26 year old son and his new girlfriend, who he moved into OUR apartment along with her 22 month and 4 month old children! They have absolutely NO respect for me or my belongings! It's time that my son gets his own place. Period. So, my 21 year old daughter and I are looking for an apartment closer to work for the 2 of us. I love my son to death, but my daughter is SO much more mature than he is. Hard finding a decent apartment at a decent cost with my little cat in tow. But, it'll work out.
On the other hand, the scale is still moving in the right direction. Normally in a situation like I'm in right now, I would have turned to food for comfort. But, I've been able to hold it together. That breakdown I had the end of June was just what I needed to get my crap together. LOL
The scale has been moving extremely slow, unfortunately ... I'd lose a few, gain a few, lose a few more, gain a few. Week by week I'd show just a few tenths of a change, which was becoming frustrating. However, I think I've discovered the problem ... I'm not eating enough! Seems the days I eat a little more, I lose more. I've been trying to stay on the lower side of the allowable calories for each day, but I think my body needs to consume on the higher side. So, that's what I'm trying to do. And, for now, it seems to be working.
Went last Friday for my yearly doctor check-up, with all the bloodwork, etc. My doctor was very impressed at my numbers! The only issue right now seems to be a Vitamin D and calcium supplement. But, she's very happy with my progress. And, actually, so am I.
