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.
