Starting today I am starting over, trying to get my weight in check. I spent the past few months packing my house in Norway, doing home repairs and fixing this and that. I arrived back in the U.S. a few days before Christmas. (I got that dreaded flu on Christmas Eve, as many others probably did, also.)
I spent last week signing up at a temp agency in hopes that I can get some temp work and earn some money while I wait for my husband to sell our house in Norway. I am thankful that I am living with my parents, but I would like my family living here to be less of a burden to my retired parents. It is amazing the amount of paperwork that one has to complete and the hoops you have to jump through (proof of previous employment, assessment tests, etc) just to get in the door!
Starting today I am back to drinking meal replacement drinks for breakfast and lunch, eating fruit and veg between when I am hungry, and eating a healthy dinner and cutting out snacking before bed.
I hope to borrow my parents' treadmill to get started with walking daily until the weather improves (or I can earn money to buy appropriate footwear to walk outside).
