Cheers !

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

So I had this big long depressing blog post written, and my computer ate it. Perhaps I should take a hint and try to be a tad less gloomy....

The tail end of winter gets me down the way it drags. But it's not forever. Spring will come in just a little while. And while I do need to do better with my exercise, I have improved my water intake and tracking. And I am still losing weight. I recently celebrated the milestone of reaching the halfway point to my goal. I've lost more than 55 pounds !

The time spent with my mother in law at hospice has been a blessing. I'm sorry to see what the family is going through, but she is in a wonderful place. Her pain is controlled and her family is around her and she and I are closer than we've ever been.

I guess it's all a matter of perspective...

So CHEERS and good health to you all !!!

( my Mother-in-law )

    Congratulations on being halfway to your goal! Try lifting 55 pounds and reallt see how much that is...
    Also, good for you turning around a down blog into one that looked at your blessings, like being able to grow closer to your MIL.
    I wish I could say this is the tail end of the winter here. Because I live on Cape Cod, our spring is delayed by the coolness of the ocean water (the reverse happens in the fall - it can be quite warm - relatively speaking - until the end of November).

    Awwwww, blessings to your MIL. And blessings to you too! I feel the same way about the tail end of winter . . . just drags on! But I look @ the 2 minutes more of daylight we get each day and it helps so much! I do think exercise is key to feeling bteter too. So keep working on that.

    Most importantly, congratulations on being 1/2 way towards your goal! 55 lbs. gone -- kicked to the curb. Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!11
