Healing, Learning, Living!

It has been a real learning experience going through this separation! I learned that I will never give up control again. That is control of my finances, control of my decisions and finally control of my life. I did not realize how much I gave up for my husband. I can't believe how much I was taken for granted. It is ok. I got my 3 wonderful, intelligent, and beautiful children out of it. I have learned how much my parents are there for me! They have been our life line through this! The kids are having a tough time with it. They are so mad at their father. They are so hurt by the lies that he has told. All I can do is be there for them and always put them first! I gave myself a break from my diet so that I could just focus on getting over my husband. I started back on HCG on Friday June 30th. I am 223.0 lbs as of this morning. I obviously did not reach my original goal of 150 by my 40th birthday. I have a smaller goal of reaching 199 by August 28th. That is 24 lbs in 8 weeks. That is 3 lbs per week. A longer term goal is to get down to 173 by Christmas. My Ultimate goal is to be 150 by March 19th. That is 37 weeks from now. It will not be easy and I am sure that I will slip up here and there. I won't get so bent out of shape if I don't meet my goals by the exact date...it is just a general guideline. I am also excited. I am going to be in my community theater's production of Church Basement Ladies. I think it is going to be a great distraction and a lot of fun!
