I'm trying to decide if I want to make a commitment to volunteering for our local Crisis Pregnancy Center. It's not that I don't believe in what they are doing, I'm just trying to decide if I want this in my life right now. Unfortunately, I get so darn attached and I tend to bring home the problems. I just want so badly to help people and for things to turn out well for them. We had a foster child for 10 months last year and I soaked myself entirely into her situation. Unfortunately, I feel that I neglected my own kids in a lot of ways. I'm also thinking selfishly because I'm in a good place right now and don't want to mess this up. I'm focused on myself and doing really well back on SP. So anyway, I need to decide before Saturday because that's when training starts.

The scale dropped me another pound this morning. 256.8 emoticon

I did 50 min of exercise today and then headed to the Chiropractor to get adjusted. I got a massage before the adjustment. I'm still having a little trouble with the knots in my neck and shoulders. Good Lord, I thought she was going to punch her thumb through my neck pushing a knot around!! emoticon I'm a little tender tonight from the wrestling she did with my muscles and nerves. I come.

Dinner was the Skillet Lasagna here on SP. Then entire family raved about it and I have some yummy leftovers for tomorrow. That is if the the guys don't take them to work. It's similar to Hamburger Helper but much better I think!

Anyway...............Keep On, Keeping On.

    You need to take care of yourself and your family first, that is not selfish. You need to live a healthier lifestyle and take care of yourself so that you are still around to see your grandchildren grow up. I just realized that for myself, so I guess it is time for both of us to take care of ourselves. If you still have time to volunteer after you have completed you goals to live a healthier lifestyle and taken care of your families needs, go for it. Congratulations on the weight loss and healthier eating habits.

    That's a tough decision. I'd get attached, too.

Great job keeping on!
