Facing My Fear

Monday, January 28, 2013

For the first time this year, I finally wieghed myself. I didn't really like what I saw, but I would be lying if I said that I expected something different. Lately, I have had a lot of stress dealing with my 6 month old's health concerns and trying to make myself feel better by eating. Probably not the best thing, but it was a temporary fix. Right now, I am at 220, which is better than this time last year. (231 in Jan. 2012) Last year I got down to 202. With Thanksgiving and Christmas, food was my crutch in dealing with homesickness and my son's ailments. Right now, he isn't out of the woods yet, but a report from our doctor in Beijing was very encouraging. It is kind of ironic that my son can not gain weight, while I do quite easily.

I have taken to adding some workouts to my regular schedule in hopes of gradually losing the weight, so hopefully you can read about my successes in my next blog. emoticon

    So sorry to learn of your son's health concerns. That obviously has to be your focus right now. Still, I'm glad you've made time for yourself. Sometimes, the hard part of taking care of someone else is taking care of yourself.

Best wishes for Declan's continued recovery.
