Well, I apologize for my lack of posting. I guess I didn't know how much or what exactly to share. It's been 2 months since my husband dropped the divorce bomb on me.
We've had many highs and lows since then, but have sort of evened out, and settled down.
We are getting a divorce. It will be finalized Aug 18th. I know it seems fast, but there's a few reasons behind it.
Since this began, I started school. The summer session started in June, and I'm taking 2 classes. It's been tougher than I expected. I chose online so I could get a job, and I'm not great at keeping up with reading.
I got a job, yay!! I work at a local Wal Mart. I really enjoy it. The biggest problem is being on my feet the whole time. The 8 hour shifts are the worst. My foot has healed significantly since losing so much weight, but I think this is making me regress. So, I'm trying to get in to see the podiatrist before I lose my insurance.
Church is going steady and strong. I started having the missionaries come weekly to sort of go through the discussions with me again, and it has been so nice having their spirit in my home. They even started doing service projects for me. They helped me do yard work, and pulled up all the linoleum in my kitchen and bathroom, and laid down peel and stick! It looks so great!
Just 2 days ago, I cooked a big "thank you" feast for em. I made my famous sugar cookies, and even the health conscious one had a half dozen HERE! :D
My weight loss has hit a bit of a snag. I haven't had time or drive to exercise or walk in the mornings, and I've been eating candy and crap. I'm to blame, and I'm not surprised I'm not losing.....
in fact, I'm kind of gaining. UGH.
I Hit my personal goal of 235....
It was the weight I'd put on my military ID back in 2005, and it was a lie back then, and has been ever since. I ALMOST attained it when I did weight watchers, but not quite, so YAY!!
I continued to drop and actually saw the 220's for one day, and then it came back.
As of this morning, I'm at 234. But I threw away the crap I'd brought in the house, and am trying to start fresh.
I honestly don't know why I eat candy and crap. It makes my stomach feel awful the second I swallow, but it doesn't stop me. It's an addiction, and the more I eat it, the worse it gets.
I had my 10 year high school reunion last month. It was so great. My goal had been to lose 50 lbs by then, and I was at 75!! I fit into a size 16 dress, and felt not fat! LOL!!
So, all I can do is continue to work on me, to better me, and to prepare for the future.
I'll try and update more often again. LOVE YOU ALL!!!
