Always starting again, it seems.

Thursday, February 11, 2021

A year ago I had a job I adored. I was twenty pounds lighter. I had no real worries on the horizon. Then came quarantine. In the three months we were shut down, The company I worked for closed my location and due to the fact that it was a physical sort of retail job, I sat around and ate. I gained 20 pounds. Then two of my young adult children suffered such severe anxiety that they needed temporary medical treatment.
SO. What now? Well, after a few starts and stops I found another job that I guess I like pretty well. It's not very physical but I am proud of my store and the products we sell. (luxury-brand cookware and cutlery). My kids are dealing with their issues in a healthy manner. AND I'm still left with these additional 20 pounds.
I guess I lost weight before and I can do it again, but HOO BOY, it's not so easy now that I'm in my mid-fifties. I will work hard, take the example of my kids and deal with my issues in a healthy manner! WIsh me luck!
