Lessons I have learned:

-Life is tough but you have to keep plugging away.
-Never stop trying because when you stop trying is when you fail.
-Log your food!
-Exercise is important to a healthy lifestyle.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was at my lowest weight of 124 pounds in 2007 since beginning my journey of managing my weight. We started trying to get pregnant and I began stress eating (I had many years of infertility which is the reason for the big gap between my kids). I shot up to 145 by the time I got pregnant in 2009.

I was at my all time highest weight in March of 2010 after having my baby girl (177 after water loss) but I didn't mind because I knew the baby was healthy. I lost 38 pounds from working out and watching what I ate then got a new job in September 2010. Since then, more than a few pounds have crept back on.

    Hi, Kathy. Good to hear from you. Sorry I haven't responded to your message earlier -- we have had severe flooding in my hometown. We were actually evacuated from our home, but luckily there was no damage to our house. We just got power restored today & have moved back in. Ahh, there's no place like home.

    I have been up and down for awhile. I lost about 8 pounds at the beginning of the year, but I have been stressed out for the past couple of months and have put some of that weight back on. So frustrating.

    I am trying for a more balanced life, but I find that too much work always gets heaped on me and then I eat in response. I work on contract and my last two clients have promised me part-time work, but that has not happened. Grrr.

    Anyway, how are you doing? I probably share a lot of the same struggles as you and so am here for support if you need me. Anytime.

    Thank you for reading and commenting on my "Don't Let Difficult..." blog the other day! I have to agree with you, we all deserve happiness! I think it just comes in different forms and at a different pace for everyone. Hope you are having a great week so far!
