When it rains it poors...... but then you have your great support system

So I have been having trouble getting exercise in as much.  My body is hurting and I've been going through some emotional problems, family problems, and some depression.  I've seen the doctor and just knowing I'm gonna be in a better mood shortly has helped me some already.  While I've been down and out I've had all sorts of people encouraging me.  I'm glad that they're there for me!! I don't know where I'd be without them.  In big trouble I guess. I've had my mom, my pastor, marcy, fawn, and my hubby.  He seems to be my rock always.  I want to get rid of some water weight due to a couple of things before I weigh in again.  Some of it I can get rid of in the next week the rest I will have to deal with for now.  I know I have gained some weight but hopefully with my mind coming back around I can get my head back in the game.  As Fawn has stressed it's about mindset!  I never really understood it until now.  I wish I was given another way of understanding besides going through all this.  As one of my favorite men, friend, and pastor has told me HE WHO HAS BEGUN A GOOD WORK IN YOU WILL BRING IT TO COMPLETION!  It's gonna happen as this weight loss journey started in his time I will finish it with his help in his time.   Keep the prayers coming I can definitely use them.  Love to you all.

It's been forever!! I do mean that.  Wow!  I have been so busy and hadn't realised it's been over 2 weeks since I blogged.  I'm usually busy from the time I wake to the time I go to bed.  After the getting the house fixed up and ready to move into we then moved our things down.  We've unpacked some of those things.  I've been to softball and baseball games and practices alot!!!!   Now we are getting ready for my oldest son's birthday party.  It's going to be outside at our own home for the first time.  So we have to prepare an area for that to happen.  All of our outside needs worked on it but we can't do all of that before the party this weekend.  So we have to concentrate on the one area of the yard that we can use.  There happens to be a tree down from one of the last storms and leaves that haven't been raked in about 15 years all soggy wet.  Twigs, branches, and rocks all in the yard.  This is where we have chosen to have his party in the backyard allowing for some shade.   

During this time I've tried my best to stay on plan.  I know I haven't always exercised like I should.  I need to not do it at home anymore.  I need to get back to the gym.  Dawn and I haven't been doing our weekly weigh in but we've talked about it and we're going to start it again because it keeps us on schedule more easily.  The accountability items are so needed in our lives.  After this new mediaction for my stomach I seem to be doing alot better stomach pain wise.  I'm ready to forge ahead and continue to reach my goal.  Throough this last month or two I have been really troubled with letting my emotions over certain things control me and that's how I was before I started my plan and that's something I never wanted to do again.  I don't want it to be where I go and eat to hide pain and suffering. 

So I won't I'm back on the road......the straight and narrow.  Look out for further updates coming soon!
