06/18/2019 - I'm not happy with myself. I know I should be, but I'm not. I don't have motivation to do anything about it right now. I've lost 6 family members in the past 3 years. My mom, my sister, a brother-in-law, 2 cousins and my ex-husband. I cannot seem to get out of the rut I'm in. I am told to quit living in the past but they were my past. They were to be my future as well.

Since my mom's death July 1, 2016 I have put almost 30 lbs back on of the 45 I lost. I can feel it in my bones, the way I walk, the way I breathe and mostly I can feel it in my heart. It breaks for what used to be.

My goal someday is just to get up out of bed without feeling so sad. I've never dealt with depression, but I know that's what I'm going through. At first I thought it was grief, but I think it has gone beyond that.

Today I'm trying to make changes. One day at a time to re-write me. To begin to be happy again. Something I've lost for the past 3 years.

My Goals:
1. Start new. Don't worry about what used to be, or how many times I've tried before, but concentrate on the here and now.

2. Start by loosing smaller amounts so my goal doesn't seem so high and unobtainable.


My Program:
1. Use resistant bands for strengthening.

    Pushing is a fundamental of life. So why do so many resist it? Because it’s uncomfortable, it is unknown . . . . and sometimes it hurts. Rhonda Nails

    Jesus did not promise to change the circumstances around us. He promised great peace & pure joy to those who would learn to believe that God actually controls all things. Corrie Ten Boom
