Checking In and Miss You All!

Hi everyone! Just thought I would check in and say and let you all know how things are going.

There is good news and more good news to report!

1. Mom has come around and is healing well. She has been moved to a long term facility until a room opens for her at assisted living. She has come around so well with the 2 months of therapy that assisted living is a definit when before it was only a dream! She has her moments but all in all things are going well.

2. Cleaned out apartment and donated bags and bags AND bags of stuff (textile hoarder) and furniture to good will. It took a month to clear out her tiny 3 room apartment but it's done! With the help of family and friends all went well and that mountain is behind me!

3. Decided among all this to plan our wedding!! I needed a bright spot in all this gray and dark and planning this is something I have been having fun with! A small wedding, at our favorite dance club, about 45 close family and friends. Our children are best man and maid of honor and it's been fun planning this with them. (If some of you are unaware, my ex husband and I are remarrying after 2 1/2 years of being divorced. True love just doesn't die, it seems! ) The wedding will be October 6th and then a honeymoon in the Spring when all is settled and done.

4. I am moving back to the home we had together, which is up for sale. Most of my things are now in storage and my son is moving into my place so switching houses has been a little , a bit and also . We both can't wait for the old house to sell so we REALLY can start fresh, a totally new life!

5. I have gained some weight and am up to my first goal weight of 145 again. I have done a little bit of JUDDD through all this but not nearly as I should. Life happens and I know this so I'm just doing what I can. I have promised myself that as soon as I am totally moved in with Rob I will start to cook again and eat my wonderful JUDDD way. I am just so happy that JUDDD has helped me to stay within my goal weight, even with my terrible eating right now! Just that JUDDD magic!

I have missed you all terribly, and I do check in when I can to see how everyone is doing. Keep up the good work everyone, you inspire me and help me when I'm feeling blue!

Love you all..........

Thrilled to see you, Linda, and so happy that your hectic and stressful life seems to be settling in a little now.. over the darkest days, over the hump. So glad your mother's health is better, with hope for assisted living in her future. And really, really happy for you and your dear love getting this wedding drawing near! Everything is looking good, isn't it?!!! Yay!

I get here so sporadically these days too, but when I'm here.. I notice that you are not, and I miss you. So glad that you will be back shortly, and more often. Don't worry about gaining a smidge back again.. We know how to get that back off easily and quickly with JUDDD, so it's just so not a problem.

Glad you checked in. Come back soon!

I've missed you too, and am so happy to read that things are going well. Life happens to all of us, and sometimes it derails us for a little bit, but JUDDD is a powerful weapon, as you know, and you'll have no trouble getting those pounds off. Hugs!

We all miss your wonderful insight into JUDDD. I know a lot of us are here because of your post about the diet quite a while ago.

So happy to hear your mother's recovery has continued, Beeb. I knew that brain injury sometimes has a remarkable recovery and I'm so glad your family will be one of those stories. (No small thanks to you getting her the right help, I'm sure.) What a job to deal with cleaning out a house, too. Congratulations in the midst of all the moving and change!

I have been worried about you. What an exciting, exhausting update! Thank you for keeping us up to date.

Okay, WHAT day should we throw the party? We need to plan so, world-wide, we have a celebratory group UD! (Or, would it be more appropriate to have a deeelish yet low-cal DD, party hats, and streamers?)

October 6 is a Saturday. I vote we hold the party on the wedding day!! Send the happy couple lots of good vibrations!
