Week 33

Thursday, February 23, 2017

I can tell that my body is slowing down on weight loss. I'm pretty sure my stress level has something to do with it. I'm supposed to move my mom to California next weekend. I am not sure that it's a good idea, but it's what she wants. I don't have much else to say this week. I did manage a very small loss, not what I have become accustomed to.

    Your courage and hard work to get back to a healthy weight and better spirituality is very encouraging to me. I am convinced you will be very successful in your journey and truly blessed by Jehovah. emoticon

    Paul ~ I know things are stressful right now. But know this a loss is a loss no matter how small.

    Sending prayers and hugs to you as you prepare for your trip next week.

    Family dynamics can be stress-inducing. Especially when those we love insist on making independent decisions that don't match our own assessments of the risks and benefits. We went through a lot of that with my mother. She was, however, an adult in full possession of her mental faculties and had the right to make what all of her children deemed "poor choices." All we can do is respect their choices as we would want them to respect ours and try not to say "I told you so" when our predictions come true. And/or congratulate them when their choice turns out to be a positive one.

    Stress can really do a number on your body.
    If your Mom wants to move to California she wants a change and maybe it will be better for her health.
    You will adapt over time as we all do with change, just remember she will love no less than before.
    This is something she feels she needs to do at this time in her life.
    I am sure she will enjoy being there in the sun and surf---can I come too!!!

    Patience. Your body may need to rest from all the dramatic changes...but also, you may be reacting to the stress, as you say. Hope things go smoothly for your Mom's move.
