March has been a pretty hard month for me. My mom's health quickly fell in decline and Last Wednesday she went to emerge. She'd been pretty sick for a few weeks leading up to that. She's still at the hospital and they believe they have a diagnosis and my mom is being treated.
My mom moved in with me 2 years ago because of my back pain and how it limited my ability to prepare food and clean. During the last 20 days, I've been as low as 235.9 and as high as 246.9. Because I was extremely stressed and not thinking well food became an inconvenience and at times a comfort. For the last 4 months I eat mostly clean foods...during this time I've been eating mostly processed foods and take out. My chronic pain is also being very hard to manage as I don't really have any help but I still need clean clothes etc. So the tasks my mom would help me with to lessen my pain are again my responsibility...so I'm having to plan when its most convenient for me to be in aggravated pain and thats when I do my tasks.
My mom's recovery will take a long time and I need to develop a system and a way to eat healthy even though I can't prep food.
Things are more in control today, I started ordering meals on wheels again and just eating fruits (no prep involved). I weigh 240.2 today. Hopefully I can get back on track because I really value how well I was doing and want to continue with my success. I've lost 43.8 pounds and I want to keep losing.
