Sorry again to everyone I neglected in my absence... but I must say, it made me feel good that there were some nice messages waiting for me in my inbox. Thanks for thinking of me.
I went through some personal troubles, including some deaths, illnesses and the worst break-up of my life. I'm not here to complain, though - was just filling y'all in. I'm going to take the momentum of all of this tragedy and take all of this bad energy and feeling and put it into newfound enthusiasm toward getting healthy.
I'm starting with a new membership to a gym. Before I was going to one fifteen minutes away - this new one is so close I could even walk to it (if it wasn't so freakin' cold out). This will encourage me to go more often and give me a new, healthy activity now that my social life's taken a hit and I'm in desperate need of distraction. And at least I'm starting in a good place, as I only gained two pounds back in the past couple months out of the fifteen I'd lost. I'm pretty proud of that, and the holiday season isn't intimidating to me in that respect.
I can't wait to get started, but I have a feeling I'm going to need support now more than ever, so anyone else in the same position is strongly urged to get in touch! I love buddies!
Either way, I have a good feeling. Wish me luck. Please.
