life style changes

Thursday, July 24, 2014

In recent years my life has changed in many ways.
1. I had cancer and was told I had a 20 percent change of survival
2 I went on an experimental trail
These two things dramatically changed my view of life and living

3 My husband retired
4 My husband died within 6 months of retirement
These two things changed my relationships in my family and my life style and many of my friends

5. My son's family moved in with me - very stressful - very different life styles
6. they moved out - more stress - family conflict
Huge relationship changes, depression, self doubt

7. my daughter moved in with her boyfriend
8 My daughter married and had children
Ease of tension and stress, better relationships with everyone, someone to help me - similar life styles

9 I changed positions at my job from classroom teacher to staff development
10. I retired
Huge lifestyle changes and professional relationship changes

11. Diagnosed with diabetes
12. Started focusing on my own health
I have made significant health improvements, but not significant weight loss

Coming soon
SIL will be working full time, grandchildren will be in day care, I will be on my own for most of the day - need to use this to my advantage, to make those changes that will change my weight loss statistics
