Trying to find the courage and strength to do this again -OR-still.

Friday, June 19, 2015

My 2015 has been difficult and a bit crazy.

My daughter has medical problems. I quit my job as a substitute classroom aide to be home again to care for her. she is making progress but it is slow going.

I have not been on a challenge team singe I hurt my finger and could no longer lift weights. i miss having a home on SP. My former team broke up. I miss those who I thought were my friends.

I decided to come back. Some have unfriended me. I thought we were friends. I will miss you. I am sad that our friendship did not survive my struggles.

I am struggling. I weigh the most I have weighted since 2001.

I am a bit depressed. I am diabetic and I love carb foods. i need to turn this around. I want to. I made a list of things that worked before. I hope they will work again.

I want to do this. I need to remind myself of that.

    I am also addicted to carbs. Carrie is a wise woman. We need to start small and eliminate one unhealthy carb at a time.

    I've been where you are. And, as everyone before has said, you can do this. Start small - pick one carb to remove fro your way of eating.

    Stumbling and picking yourself up is a sign of strength

    The fact that you are here now is a great start.
    I'm still here and have been struggling too, since last summer perhaps. My blood glucose numbers kept rising. with new meds... the carbs have been calling bigtime.
    So I hear you. some of my SP freinds have drifted away, too You were one, I am so glad that you are back.
    Anything you do is a step in the right direction.
