Well, I lost .2 this week and I'll take it. In the past 3 weeks I've lost more than 7 pounds so I am VERY pleased. It is so wonderful to be back on track and have my eating under control. I haven't always made the most healthy choices but at least I'm staying in range and losing. I have pretty much shed all of the weight I gained so I'm pretty proud about that too.
My exercise isn't as consistent as it needs to be. I'm okay with that because I know better than to expect that everything will be 100% all at once.
So why stressful times? Well, my mom has been really sick. She is only 58 because she had me when she was 18 and got married when she was 16 (crazy lady!). She has survived cancer twice before the age of 40 and last Wednesday had a heart catheterization. This Friday she needs to have open heart surgery for an aortic stenosis and will have a valve replacement. The cardiologist said this is typically seen in elderly people so she always manages to be ahead of the curve. I guess there are positives to being so young, hopefully she will recover quickly from it!
Considering all that is going on, I would normally be eating my heart out and hiding under the covers. I am happy to say that I am not letting this derail my progress, nor do I intend to. If all my spark friends could keep my mom in their thoughts, I would really appreciate that!
