I've been having a hard time at home, pretty much since I moved in in February. What I have to gain is enormous, what I have to lose if I fail is enormous, but day to day issues are also enormous. A good bit of the problem is that I don't make enough money and my fiance has no income other than food stamps for herself and her daughter.
My SparkFriends have been almost bombarding me with SparkGoodies to keep my spirits up, and I adore them and appreciate the thoughts.
I had enough money to buy maybe 5 days of food today. It has to last nearly 2 weeks. I keep eating the less-than-healthy food which has piled up through many visits to food pantries, that my fiance and her daughter do not eat for whatever reasons. And I keep losing weight, either from my work and mindfulness, the good wishes and prayers of my friends, or maybe I'm just not eating stuff my body likes enough to hang onto.
A couple more pounds and I will have lost 100 pounds. It has taken 10 years to do it, but that's actually good news as it is more likely to stay off.
But I just wanted to say thank you to my friends, especially those of Pagan Place and the current Yummier By Yule Challenge and also to The Lady Mary. Yes, Wowietoo, I am drinking tons of fluids. If I drink any more I'll start floating.
