I got knocked down.............

Friday, October 16, 2009

Here I am trying to give advise to someone who has already reached her goal when I can't even stick to a plan!!!! I'm having a really hard time getting back up this time!! in the past I've gotten knocked down but I got up again, this time is sooooo different, I need some help fast!!!
I'm going through some trying times right now, still dealing with the insurance co. after losing my home in June of 08, to fire
I can feel myself sinking, I've gone on two short trips, I went to New Mexico in Sept. and I went to Vegas this past weekend I know what I'm doing I'm trying to run away from reality, only I eventually have to return!! and when I do it's the same ol thing, any advice is greatly appreciated!!!

    I have also am having a difficult time getting my eating under control. I feel it is my fault, that I let things take me away from doing weight loss.
    We need to make a mind set that we ARE going to get this under control again. I have been a total failure since I became a part of S:P. Nobodies fault but my own.

    Pick your self up---and say I am going to continue on this journey again. We can become conquers if we say we are going to do it. Best of luck---and I will keep in touch.
    Another struggler like yourself.

    I am so sorry about your fire. I know what you are dealing with as I lost my home due to fire in January 2006. Dealing with the insurance company is a royal pain. Just keep on them and definitely keep track of everything that you send to them and what you get from them. I was given 2 months to replace everything after getting my up front check for the contents. The deadline was 6 months after the fire but still even 6 months isn't enough time to replace a house. At one point I ended up threatening the company with an attorney and asked for the address to the home office so I could let the attorney know where to send the paperwork. I didn't have an attorney but I would have found one if I needed to do so. I was also dealing with having my son in Iraq and I was in school for my bachelors degree and missed 2 weeks of classes while dealing with the fire and the after effects. Feel free to sparkmail me if you have any questions on what to do. I don't know if I will have any answers for you but I can try.

    Take care of yourself and get some rest as much as possible.
