The wonderful news is that my sweetheart continues to be cancer free. It affects our daily life (he needs daily lymphatic massage, he has to wear compression garments, MUST wear sunscreen, etc.), but life is good. We have much to be thankful for from God.
We've moved closer to family in Michigan, Ohio and Illinois. We're enjoying life in a real house and living in a college/beach/biking community. However, it doesn't feel like home yet, it feels like an extended vacation. Eating and exercise have been difficult and I've been eating emotionally for over a month. Seems silly after being strong during the crisis with cancer earlier in the year, but maybe the move and the continued non-sale of our Virginia condo has tipped me over the edge.
So, we're in a new area, new house, it's an adjustment after living in Virginia most of our lives. Health is good (Yay!), but the eating is not healthy. I've started focusing on the first step of Spark People's ten step plan to overcome emotional eating and on leaving trigger foods out of the pantry. Right now.
