It has been 2 weeks! Geesh! Where to start… Vacation was great! I spent a week at the beach. “So nice and relaxing.” I really enjoyed my family. This was my mom first official vacation and the experience of seeing her smile and enjoy herself was priceless. At the start of vacation I was really good with my food choices and even had my nephews eating baked chips. Towards the end I got a little relaxed. It was over too soon!
A couple weeks before going home for this trip I was talking to my sister in law about the trip and to make sure nephew would be able to go. And her mom had been battling Ovarian Cancer for the last year… Her first round of chemo was a success, but a couple months later it returned. So she agreed to do one more round, and she told us if this didn’t work she didn’t think she could do another treatment because how awful it made her feel. I had no idea that in the last couple months that she had taken a turn for the worse. My sister wouldn’t tell me she was down sick, but when she mentioned that she was speaking with Hospice..I knew it wasn’t good! I prayed and prayed that GOD would let me see her one more time before she left us. And he did just that I got to see and spend some time with her before going on the trip. And I still didn’t think that that would be the last time I would see her, but it was. She passed away while we were at the beach emoticon So it was not the idea return from vacation no one had the heart to tell me she was gone so I found when we pulled up at a funeral home… Let’s just say it was not a pretty sight… This just reinforces how short life is and how we should each other every day because we never when it will be our last…
So I am back! I about 4/5lbs heavier, but fingers crossed that it might water and other factors… I will be honest with you the week after the funeral I ate really crazy. I didn’t fly in until late Sunday night and had to work yesterday… So I haven’t made to the grocery store for my weekly shopping so I can officially be back on the wagon!!!

So here is to a new fresh start!!! And making all OUR dreams come true!

    I am so sorry to hear about your family's loss. It's never easy, but celebrate her beautiful life and keep her memory alive and eventually, everything will be alright. Your weight gain is likely just water and salt retention, but get back on the wagon fast before it becomes a habit! You deserved your vacation, so don't beat yourself up for a few happy pounds. Good luck working them off and hopefully you keep some of that relaxing energy you soaked up at the beach with you for a long time!

    Welcome back! Sorry to hear about your sister-in-law's mother, ovarian cancer is a tough one to battle. Glad that you got to see her again, though; that was a gift.
