I signed up for epic to get more support. We are new to the area and I still don't know anyone here. This is a big time of transition for us; especially me. I still have one homeschooled son at home who also has a job. Hubby is strongly encouraging me to get back to school (college). I was on track to start nursing school and everything was shuffled last year with a sick dad who died in Oct. We finally got into an apartment in Dec. and sold our house making our last moving trip from Biloxi in February. I kinda feel tired and beat down and thought this would help.
So far, epic has made me feel guilty for letting everyone down. But I will finally be able to help out by actually earning a couple of points this week. It has helped a lot since people actually write and post me --- which lets me know that I EXIST! I know I can do this.
I was trying the first week, however, while I was in Houston visiting family - I coasted. I have made a couple of positive changes this week and am sticking with them.
I can't comment on the next leg. I have to focus on one day at a time here and one pound at a time.
Maybe health check ups for a future improvement. I know people who just don't bother - even if they are dieting and exercising right. There can be hidden health issues that can only be found out by a dr.'s visit.
Keep kicking me though, don't let up or stop pressuring me. I need it to get moving. Thanks all!
