Begin again!

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

I have been missing in action for quite a while. My husband accepted a new job in the midwest the end of last year. So long story short, after house hunting, getting our house in PA ready to sell, moving cross country and unpacking i have gotten way off track and regained a little over half the weight back that I had lost last year.

It has taken me a while to start again. Although this move brings me closer to family once again and should mean less hours for my husband, it was a tough move for me. I left a very dear friend back in PA who had become like a sister to me. My girls left dear friends also. I have been very depressed about the whole move, even though I know in my heart that it was a good move for us. It will just take time to adjust. My girls aren't so little that I will meet as many people this time. Being in a small town makes it harder too.

I have joined a community gym and have been going to that to get me out of the house. Today I am starting back tracking food and exercise. Slowly but surely I will focus on being a healthy happier me. Hopefully in time, I will make some new friends. But right now it is day by day for me to feel happy. I know that is normal as I am missing friends and in a very new situation. Bear with me as I am sure to keep struggling. But I will persevere!

    Glad you are back! Try to find at least FIVE things to be grateful for, every day! Yes, this move may have been difficult, but even you admit it's for the good. Try to help your children adapt by encouraging them to get involved. The gym's a great start. ((hugs))
