I'm Back

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

I started this program in Jan. of 2008. For the first 6,8,10, months I did great. I had lost 48 lbs. and was so proud of myself. Then it seemed like thing just feel apart. My Grandmother died in Nov. of "08" . After that I was on and off for quite awhile. Our business truck got smashed Aug "09". Then in Oct. My mom got really sick. After a week stay in the hospital my husband and I took her home with hospice. She had COPD. We moved in and took care of mom. There were a lot of up's, and down's, laughter, and tears for the next year. Mom past away Oct. 24th. I have been trying to get a lot of things back on track. Doing things that had to be done. Getting things back into some kind of order. I have been back here a few times, and just couldn't get it together. I know how proud my mom was when I was lossing weight. She knew how happy I was, and how proud of myself I was. So now I'm back. In all that's been going on I've gained all my weight back but 10 pounds, and I'm deturmined to do this. For me, and my mom. I'm going to get healthy, and fit. I'm pretty sure I'm going to need help. Mostly encouragement. I know this is the right place.

    Hi Angel!!!!

    I can so relate!!! I too have been on that same kind of roller coaster. My dad died in Sept 09, my step son in January of 2010, and then this year we had to go back to NC to get my MIL diagnosed, as she was having problems. turns out she has Alzheimer's and dementia! Dan lost 2 jobs over all the mess with his mom, one when we went back in january and he ended up staying there for 6 weeks and finally got her into a nursing home, just to have his sister take her out 3 weeks later just because mama was crying that she wanted to go home!! grrrrr.. made me spittin' mad! then he went back in March to get her license revoked and lost his part time job. and no his sister would not do a thing to do any of this. She is in denial that her mother is even sick! makes me ill thinking about it. so I too have gained back all the weight I had lost except for about 15 lbs, but now I too need to get back on track or my doc is going to put me on cholesterol meds and I don't want to go there, and my glucose is on the border of diabetic and I need to get it down! keep in touch, and I do have a new e-mail if you want to write to me it is chelgren96@gmail.com

    take care and God Bless!!!

    I am proud of you for your honesty and your determination. You will make your Mom proud I am sure. Like you, my life has become almost unmanageable at times with the day to day "situations." I need to get to the point where you are and get my head right...I am just not there yet.
