I was looking at my sparkpage and the reasons for wanting to lose weight. One was for my "future family", as I wanted to foster a youth. But hey! We took in a 16 year old in December, and I celebrated my first Mother's Day ever! It's tricky because somewhere he has a biological mom out there - you never know what these days trigger for someone like him. But he was super into it! We all went whale watching, had lunch, and saw IronMan 3. And he and his friends wished me Happy Mother's Day on Facebook and he gave me an awesome card. Really, what could possibly have been better???
Back to the weight. I am definitely struggling through a plateau right now, but the good news is I haven't fallen off the wagon or given up, which would have been easy. It is hard because there's a lot more to do with him here, and my petsitting business which I had put on the back burner is picking up pretty fast. I am still moving forward, getting back into cardio and strength training, and tracking my food. But the best thing is I am super happy having him with us.
