update

Monday, January 21, 2013

my father-in-law passed away the night of my last blog. his memorial service was yesterday. life will find a new "normal" eventually. there's always emotional stuff to process, and family drama and/or trauma around these kinds of things. i still have weight to drop, but i can see the progress i've made, and how different my life is.....i didn't use the excuse of grief as a "free-for-all" pass to eat sugar or other unhealthy things. i stuck with my normal "diet:" 8-12 glasses of water, at least 7 servings of fruits and veggies, no candy/desserts, low-fat protein, etc. i can't control the events in my life, but i am continuing to learn how to control my reactions to stress...to not yield control to situations. i know that's a mammothly huge victory, so i'll celebrate that.
i'm ready for the next leg of this journey.

    I'm so sorry for your family's loss and you are all in my thoughts and prayers. You're doing great, I don't know if I could have done as well under the circumstances. HUGS!
