Yay, great to see you back!

I too was nodding in agreement at what you were saying. It's hard to come to the boards and be positive all the time. Losing (or gaining) weight is powerful stuff and I for one have a difficult time saying it out loud. Seems safe to say that those of us with quite a bit of excess weight have more than just pounds to lose. This is your journal, for your edification. If you can't be honest in your own writings then you won't learn what it is you need to learn.

Welcome back.

WOW! Thanks for all the love! It is absolutely lovely to see each and every one of you this morning

Man, where do I even start.... it's been a long coupla months.....
let's just say, your kids definitely get harder to deal with the older they get.. I have had my run for my money the last few months and I am tired...... not to mention, unhealthy, exhausted, and feeling like death... did I mention tired??? Through all of this I totally let go of anything healthy and forgot to take care of myself. I ate emotionally big time... somehow I think I was punishing myself for everything going on around me.. Something about this obviously didn't fit logically to me, and I had to figure it out and do the mental work... of course realizing that it all had nothing to do with me, and that I am entitled to putting myself first, and taking care of ME.. I did my work w/ my kids already and what they choose to do is not supposed to overtake my own life and daily choices...
So, after a totaled car, mental breakdown, and a pregnancy...<<<not me,---them... I think I am slowly feeling human again and ready to resume my own life and clean up my act.

I have to credit my husband. He has been my absolute rock through all of this. He kept the fort standing, the days moving, and got me out of bed every day. He is under a huge amount of stress at work, and all of my emotional breakdowns the last couple months have only added to it all.. he never stopped, never questioned, never lectured, never told me to knock it off... he just let me be and he took care of me. We have been through ALOT over the last 20 years...I mean, A-LOT. A near divorce, financial issues, family drama x1000, raised 3 kids... and I have never been more proud to call him mine than I have been through all of this....he has shown me yet again, that yep, he's here for it all, good, bad & ugly. I love him so much!!

Restarting from nearly the beginning----only 5.4 lbs from my highest weight ever, which I recorded last September when I first began cycling... feels very shameful, but yet, somehow at peace with knowing exactly where I stand. Choosing to face it today instead of another day living in the dark and in denial.. Feels so much better mentally to face it all and just focusing on moving forward.

Today is day 1 of cycling--it's a low carb day and I am already dragging big time! I am way out of practice of eating 5x a day and have had to set alarms to remind me to eat every 3 hours. Shockingly, I also got WAY out of habit of drinking my daily gallon of water....something I didn't think I would EVER lose...but I did.. Back to it starting this week.

Resetting my marble jars this week

Oh my gosh Danielle! You have really been through it. I was hoping you were just taking some "me" time and not having a rough time. You are one strong woman to endure all of this and pick yourself back up so quickly. I'm proud of you! And so glad to have you back with us.

We as MOM's tend to take the BRUNT of IT ALL!!!!! I hope everyone survived the totalled car and the pregnancy......my thoughts are with you girl! Way to face it all and start over again! LOVE YOU GIRL!!!!!!!!

That was an amazing post, Danielle. ((hugs)) Your kids and life in general will challenge you and sometimes we need a break to wallow. It's definitely time to prioritize YOU. I'm excited you are restarting the marble jar. I love that idea and how pretty your jars looked.

How are you feeling? Excited to be on the journey?

You are so strong and coming back is a wonderful thing to do for yourself! There's so much support here, so many good friends who understand about life challenges. You have an amazing life partner in your husband!

I'm looking forward to hearing how you're doing and will help in any way I can!

Oh gee, you have certainly had your hands full! Good for you for coming back and making yourself a priority again! And lucky you for having your DH as a rock through it all.

I hope your day #1 went well!
