Today is my husbands first day of work he is at his orientation as I type, we took the train together, I went up fou r flights of stairs from the train platform instead of the elevator, my husband brings out the best in me and tells me I do not need that elevator I am fine and will be fine.
We work for the same employer, different section but the same its nice having him nearby.
I just throw my arms up and yell "HALLEJUAH!!!!" I have been waiting four years for this day to pass!! God is good He is opening doors and I believe He is not done.
I kept a promise to myself that I did not write about my last blog here. When my husband lost his job I had to stop going to WW meetings. You just do not know how mu ch you need something in y o ur life until you have been without , or what a priviledge it is to have something until you have had to go without.
Two weeks ago I kept that promise it was scarey , i was crying all my way to my first meeting , some out of fear, but just overwhelmed with emotion that I am keeping my promise and I am because I know that my husband got a job and we can start restoring and rebuilding our lives,
I can start getting the help I need, I was doing fine using the resources I could and doing the best I can regardless of the stress I was facing every single day. So my tears were a form of release and healing and freedom.
Anyways, to catch up , I went to my second meeting , I now take tissue with me because just hearing stories from people or me sharing I tear up , well this meeting I had a cheering section with me , my mom and dad they wanted to see not that my mom needs WW , they are part of my support team.
They witnessed me getting my first five lb reward!! this week my first week I was down 6.4!!! I kn ow for me that was typical , but just to be at the meeting it was busy and just buzzing you can feel the happiness and postive vibes from everyone there. I need to be there!!
I will not take it for granted anymore its a blessing and priviledge to be there for myself and I am investing in myself .
This weeks goal : working on measuring ecspecially my ju ice and milk , just brush up on that
Weight goal: ultimate is four lbs I am working towards even if its one lb at a time!
I am rebuilding and restoring my life.
