Just found out

Sunday, July 08, 2012

Hi I just found out last night that my husband is deploying 4 month earlier then they were suppose to. I am not happy about this it is going to make it so much harder on me because now I will have the stress of him being gone. I just have to keep positive and keep myself disciplined and not break my goals. It is going to be a long 8 months for me but I can do this. I know I can.

    Oh hun I feel your pain for the past 4yrs my husband has been doing back to back deployments. one time they were told it was just a workup off the coast of San Diego he sent me an email that said we arent coming back we just got pulled to deploy send me provisions I love you. We have had our deployments extended at a moments notice. Its mission first and foremost. It never gets easier we just get stronger. Hugs! Im here for ya

    You are all right I can do this my youngest son and I am going to work out all the time and loose the weight we need to while my husband is gone. He will come home to a total different family at least he will think that LOL. We have done this many of times and we can do it again. It is just sad for my youngest son because Dad is never home for his birthday. My husband wasnt even home for his birth. But he is always home for my oldest sons birthday. So its hard on Christian. But I will make him a deal if he looses the weight that we set as his goal that we will go to one of my husbands last ports to see him which will be around my sons birthday. That will keep us both motivated. emoticon

    I am so sorry for the added stress! I know my situation was a bit different because I knew my husband was just a few hours away and not very much in harms way, but the 9 months my husband spent away from home in the fire academy were the first time I used to really focus on getting healthy and the workouts really helped with stress relief! I lost 40 pounds in those 9 months.

    Awww Sweetie, so sorry for you, but I know that you've had to do it before and you'll have the strength to do it again. With your determination with your discipline, you'll really be leaving dust behind you and your husband won't even recognize you! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are right, you can do this. You might want to consider finding a workout "healthy influence" buddy. Try meetup.com and see if you can find a group that meets your interests. I tried it when my hubby was going to be away & discovered a great hiking group VERY close to me. In that group, I now have two people I consider good friends.

    You can do this - for yourself, & for him.
