Count me in that boat to. I posted on healthy exchanges how I need to get writing down what I eat and eating healthy again. I have not been since Christmas and it is catching up with me. Scale is moving the wrong way putting wrong things in my body. Ugh
I am starting with my next meal I fond a journal at the table tonight. We can do this!
Kudos for recognizing that you've been putting yourself on the back burner. Now stop giving yourself a hard time and move YOU up on your priority list. When you are feeling good about yourself things are easier to take.

I can really identify. I have been so overwhelmed with my many jobs, my son's school situations and my mom's illness that I have totally disregarded myself. I must get back on this wagon because being off it has been killing me slowly. All of this and then my son says...mommy you are fat!!!. I felt terrible. I must make an effort to take that comment into prospective and know that he means well. He is only calling it how he has learned it and how he sees it.
I am hoping to be back on track starting with this reply. Sorry to say this but I am glad I have good company.

I have kind of been MIA on the threads again and I apologize. Again, family (or supposed family) have gotten in the way of me being useful and productive.
I have been having problems with my mother and my son both. Trying to handle everything on your own (the world on the shoulders routine) is not good or healthy. I always do this though, I take everything on my self and do not let anyone help me or back me up. When things get too stressful or rough, I either stay and fight, I run like a bat out of hades or lastly I try to go into hiding. None of these are healthy.
I am trying to keep my positive attitude, but to be honest, I feel like I am fighting a losing battle.
My weight is fluxuating right now and I am not happy about that. I really want this and I want to be healthy. My weight went up when I was off of the meds and now I am having a problem getting it to come off.
Then I got hurt about 3 weeks ago now during cardio training and that put me on the sidelines indefinately. I was getting off of the exercise bike and was trying to avoid the cat's water bowl and I twisted my left knee. Then my foot and ankle are both swollen on the same side. This is bothering me a lot. I really miss my workout.
Everyone please continue to bear with me and I hope to be back to normal soon.
Blessed are those who bring out the BEAUTY in others!!
You are blessed if you understand that VERY LITTLE is needed to make life happy.
