I have tried everything to lose weight. I have battled for years with my size and usually end up gaining back more than I lost. I don't have much positive support in losing the weight. I have wonderful, loving people in my life, but they love me as I am and I hear a lot of "there's no reason to lose weight, I love you as you are" from the best of them or "You never keep the weight off, so why bother" from the rest. Nearly 30 years of needing total joint replacements that we thought were not possible (not going into the reasons why, they're in the "need to let go" category) really contributed to the weight gains.

I had both knees replaced 3 years ago. It was the best thing I could have done for myself. Now, I just need to get myself back in gear, get the weight off again, and keep it off this time!

I will be going back to school in a few weeks, and while most people say "don't try to do too many things at once, you will fail" that doesn't work for me. I tend to do better when I'm actually doing several things at once. It's a momentum thing for me. If I slip on one thing while I'm working on several, I will pull myself back in line faster. If I slip while I'm only doing one thing, I give up. There are good and bad things about knowing yourself this well.

So, here we go...again...

It's been a long, rocky road and I'm nearly at the point I began...again. This time, things WILL be different.

I've dealt with the demons, and I'm emotionally much healthier. For good or bad, the "mama drama" is over, she passed in May. Like I said, I have dealt with the demons. She was difficult, but I loved her. And I was there when she needed me. I did the best I could with what I had. And it's good enough. There aren't any more backhanded "compliments" that are meant to damage me, there aren't any more snide comments, it's very different. It's going to be a long adjustment, I think.

I am a bit lighter than I was when I went to take care of mom the last time, so that's a little progress. I just need to keep making steps towards the me I want to be. I'm there emotionally and mentally, which is fit and healthy. The goal now is to get my body there too!

    The only way to get what you want is to risk being uncomfortable. The greater your gratitude for discomfort, the greater the opportunity. Chris Cade
