I am the worst at this..

Sunday, January 28, 2018

But I may be the queen of 'starting over'. Here we go again. I began Keto one week ago. down about 8 pounds so that is a good start. Life really slammed our family this year. My father in law became very sick, we brought him to live with us in April and he was in and out of the hospital many times. In December he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and he passed away peacefully at my house about two weeks later. During that same time my Mother in law also was hospitalized and she is also with us under Hospice care. So, taking care of them has outweighed taking care of me. My husband is retired so he stays home while I still work a full time, stressful at times, job. So, trying to be better at planning our meals is the biggest key in getting this whole diet thing right. "Fail to plan, Plan to fail." as they say.

    It sounds like you have a lot of stress right now. Under the circumstances, it sounds like you're doing the best you can. Don't give up. emoticon

    You and yours have been through an awful lot this year. Be gentle with yourself. We all deal with grief in different ways and at different paces.
    If I may suggest, set small goals for now. At least you would be maintaining (and not increasing).

    Thank you so much for sharing your journey during 2017. You are so very strong!!!
