This week’s weigh-in: Zero.
I guess it’s good that the gain stopped, but it’s far from ideal.
I’ve just really struggled since everything turned so screwy over the summer.
Since the first week of July, our son has had maybe three instances where he has stayed in his bed the whole night.
I don’t like to use that as an excuse, but I’m exhausted. I never realized how much a good night’s sleep was contributing to my weight loss success until that consistency was shot.
I’m still struggling with Dad’s death. Last week, “Free Bird,” which they played at his funeral, came on the radio, and I bawled all the way to work.
Anyway, this is life. No one’s situation is perfect.
But I have to find ways to rise above it all and find happiness. I know people who are.
Former work friend Jim has lost about 50 pounds the last I heard. New work pal Alan has joined an adult baseball league.
I have a couple of friends who are taking steps to find a better job.
Tifany, my best friend from home, is training for a half-marathon.
And my mom bought her first home computer so she can stay in better touch with me and my son. She’s even joined Facebook and is learning to video chat with us.
See, there. Inspiration is around us. Let’s share it with each other.
OK, your turn. Tell me one thing you are doing toward a happier life.
