It's been since late August I was actually active on here, a lot has happened since then. In my personal life, my husband succumbed to leukemia about 6 weeks ago, so I lost him and my 2 step kids at the same time. It's been difficult, but I am getting through it. I decided to go back to school, so I am looking into signing up for fall classes. I also decided to get back into exercising and eating well. I fully believe that my husband's poor lifestyle of smoking, not exercising, drinking a lot of soda, and eating high amounts of unhealthy processed foods, COULD have factored into his getting cancer so young. It may not have, but I feel like maybe just being all around healthier, and setting a good example for my kids, will be good for all of us. I just wish he was still here so we could work on it together. When he was diagnosed he quit smoking and stopped drinking pop, and he made a real effort to be more healthy while he was going through treatment, his cancer was just so aggressive he didn't stand a chance.
Since I've been inactive and eating poorly the last several months, I expected to be worse off, but I've only gained a few pounds in that time. I'm up about 2 lbs since my last weigh in, which I can live with. Just need to work on that muscle tone.
