The scale shows I lost 2.6 lbs this week. Yay me!! Last week, I had a sudden gain of something like 2 lbs in 2 days, so I suspect some of this week's weight loss can be attributed to losing last weeks water weight. Either way, loss is loss and I'm thrilled!
I must admit that I'm wishing all this would go faster. It may be time to throw in a little exercise. I just don't know if my knees can take it or how to consistently find the time in my crazy, wacked out schedule.
Not diet related, something has been weighing on my mind far heavier than my obesity. I've been a stay-at-home mom for all but maybe a year total of my 15 year marriage. I don't see my husband and I staying together long after the kids no longer need me, so I will be looking for a job. Our youngest turns 10 this summer, so I figure another 8 years or so will be necessary. That'll make me in my early 50s. How crazy is it to step out into the work world as a newbie at that age? And what about retirement? Obviously, I make nothing as a sahm and won't have any sort of fund set up. I'm wondering if I need to start thinking about some career moves now. Yet, my 4 kids need so much from me right now, including the younger 2 and their homeschooling, that I'm not sure how to go about that. This issue is definitely weighing heavy on my mind right now and I would love to hear other people's thoughts on this.
Well, have a healthy week, y'all!!
