5th week.

Monday, July 20, 2015

For my 5th week, I had a 1 pound loss. That means 5 consecutive weeks posting a loss. That is fantastic! I couldn't be happier.

On another note. The last week have been tough. My husband has a hard time getting passed the loss of his mother. I have been kind of waiting for my husband to heal before grieving for my father. I do my best to make his life easier so he can heal. I feel like I am carrying him with my two hands while keeping up with work, school, house work and all. It is making my life hard these days.

Enough with the self pity. I have been looking into buying a puppy for his birthday. I found two places that seem to have nice Rotweiler females that will be ready to go in August. We will never replace our dear Sasha, but it will be nice to have a dog again. And here I had promised myself I would not have another pet. But I strongly feel it would be better for my husband.

I have another 2 weeks of school before the finals. Then, I will be able to take a good 2 weeks off work and relaxe a bit.

Besides that, nothing new. Today will be my 6th week weight in, I'm looking forward to see if I can post a 6th loss in a row. Most of my clothes are too big now. I love that! 20 punds sure shows! Looking forward to the next 20!

    Congrats on the losses it is wonderful. I also agree you need time for you to talk about your Dad and to remember your good times together. Though you know your hubby better than anyone, we'll be your sounding board till he listens. Hugs.

    As for the dog, that is 15 years to look after her. It is a big decision.
    My daughter had a troubling time and I went to visit her, her partners Beagle was following her up and down as she walked and cried and talked. When she sat down he put his head on her knee and when she got up so did he. Now that is real love.

    emoticon on the weight loss. I hope that you will time for yourself. Putting others needs first is commendable, however, you still need time for yourself. So much has happened in such a short time. Allow yourself time to grieve. Getting a puppy sounds like a great idea. Keeping you in my thoughts & prayers. Stay strong

    Congrats on the loss sis, you are doing exceptional, especially with all that you have had to deal with lately. I agree with JULIAMOONCHILD, don't wait too long to grieve, take some "you" time and just let it out, let the world revolve you and your sadness for a little while. Knowing you, it won't take too long for you to get through the process, you're such an over-achiever!

    Have a great next few weeks of school sis!

    Oh how proud you NEED to be of your accomplishment! (I am very proud of you!!!) What you have done in these 5 weeks, my beautiful friend, even in the face of your own grief, the passing of your beloved Father, you have moved FORWARD and have set your mind to taking care of HIS beloved daughter. He must be with your Mother looking down on you this day and saying, "WELL DONE, YOU, WELL DONE!!!!"

    Yet, because you are such a special person, you have put the needs of others before your own, and though I so much admire that quality in you, I beg you to not deny your own grief for too long. After my Mum died, I did much the same thing .... and it has caught up with me! Such a fast paced life we live these days, allowing so little time for our grief to be fully expressed. It is an emotion that rightfully needs attention, yet denying it is often a necessity it seems. And in your own situation, putting it on hold for the sake of others, it is commendable, but it is also a tricky path to follow. I hope soon you will find your own personal time to grieve ... away from the classroom and all other obligations, and that you will be surrounded by loving arms .... as loving and thoughtful as your own.
    Anyway, you are showing strength and amazing determination at a time when it would have been so very easy to say, "I will do this LATER" .... Yet, instead, you have chosen to do this now. I am moved by your strength and your EXAMPLE ... and I admire you more than words can say! emoticon
