Change in the wind....

Sunday, July 15, 2007

I am ready to go home. REALLY ready. I feel like the bulk of the work is done here now, and I am starving for conversation that does NOT revolve around my mom's dementia or my dad's back, or the care givers' schedules, or day care or ANY parental issues! I want to snuggle with my hubby, cook foods *I* want to eat, party with my friends, and exercise....

I am so sick of eating junk. SO sick of it. I was thinking today, I have been using spark people for my sanity, not for weight I any SANER??? doubt it. Am I any THINNER??? Definitely not.

SO...I started by changing my page. And my attitude. Next step, change my eating. Get back to natural. Eat more raw. Add the step at a time...oh yeah, weigh myself in there somewhere, and face the music...guess I'll be changin' the old ticker too....

No more fooling around. At 10# per month, I can easily be at 175 by the holidays...

    Bless you as you get back to "real " life! It is so hard to deal with issues of aging parents.
I visit a couple from my church who are now homebound. The wife was a schoolteacher, and very talkative and vibrant-now she can't string two words together--so sad.
I will have you and your family in my prayers,

    AT, your attitude is fantastic. You are truly an inspiration to us all. And, I like to think this site is about more than just losing the pounds. It's about people reaching out to each other for whatever health maintenance might be necessary at any given time. And yes, sanity is part of that health journey.

Enjoy being home - like you need to be told that one!

Hugs and much appreciation,

Your portion of life has been a great HUGE challenge and you have done a great job of NOT falling apart at the seams! I wish you a wonderful homecoming!
