Did you even know I was gone????

School started on January 18th for me. January 19th is when I gave up on the whole 100 in 11 thing. I kind of feel like I can only handle 1 tough thing at a time. School does not come easy for me...then you add in raising 3 girls and all of the other responsibilities that we all face. I am overwhelmed. Food comforts me during those brief moments when I feel like I cannot do it all.

I have not given up completely though, or I would not be here typing this now.

I signed up for weight watchers online and will start fresh tomorrow. Luckily, I have only gained 1 lb during my "vacay" from my dream of losing 100 lbs.

Vacay is ova...and I am back. I will be posting before pics(cringe)...finally reveal my weight(double cringe)...and get real with myself. Work hard, stop making excuses, and just get this party started.

  1. Welcome back! I noticed your absence and was hoping you were okay. Sounds like you're sorting some things out. Balance is tough, but it sounds like you have some realistic plans to move forward. Look forward to your next post!

  2. I often feel that way too - that I can only focus on so many "hard" things at one time... Glad you didn't give up!

  3. Do it. Do it for you, for your kids, for your future. Start by changing your shopping habits. Buy less, buy healthy, eat half of what you put on your plate. But don't give up on you. If you have the determination to go to school, u can do this too.

  4. Yes, I noticed you were gone. I hoped you hadn't given up. I know what it's like to raise kids and go to school - I'm doing it right now!

    It's hard, I know - but don't use food as your crutch. Exercise is such an enormous stress reliever....It gives you so much more than food. And...your clothes don't get tighter!

  5. Come on... you know I noticed you were gone. Do not do that to me again. Take it one step at a time... I'm with you.

  9. I'm sorry you've been struggling recently, we all go through phases like that from time to time. The important thing is getting right back on track when you fall off!
