it's challenging to be honest about re-gaining part of what i've lost.
the pounds were creeping on, but the last few months, they've just piled on. 4-1/2 years ago, my husband lost his job. he opted for re-training, since the newspaper business was tanking. he's in the medical field now, with a new job. if you've never experienced long-term unemployment, there's no way i can adequately explain the toll it extracts. it's been an emotional roller coaster. he applied at about 150 places. and got very few responses. between applying for his job and to starting work, 15 days elapsed, and we traveled 1600 miles. today marks 3 months. i've traveled that same distance 3 more times, and it's just been insane. moving is soooo challenging. i'm finally here to stay. i won't have to be worrying about packing, cleaning, selling, packing, driving....etc, etc, etc.
tuesday was day one. i cut out sugar treats. it's time to start my exercise program again, but i'm not sure what that will look like. it will take a while for me to adjust to the elevation change, so i'll take it slow.
onward and upward......
