It's been months and months, (maybe over a year?) since I last posted. My weight got back up to 228. And I was unmotivated. But ya know, all it takes to motivate me is seeing the scale go DOWN a pound or two, rather than UP, and I'm back on track.
So as I was beginning my downward spiral, (haha) I suddenly had a big change happen in my life. The boyfriend and I parted ways, happily, and I found myself needing to go back to work full time to support myself and my son on a new single income. For years I had been working part-time as a city carrier for the USPS, but now, the decision was made to go back to full-time. Full time mail carrier is tough work, and you almost don't have time to eat, and you work (and WALK) hours and hours a day!
When I started full-time again, I was back up to an unhealthy weight. In the last 2 months, by just being busy again, and working and walking tons, I've dropped so far 18 lbs. Weighed in at 210 this morning. I think at some point, my body will just get used to all this exercise, and the weight will stop coming off. Hopefully, not until I get back down to 170. :-)
Anyway, I thought about this blog today, and I wondered if it hadn't just disappeared into cyber space. But it's still here! And I thought about printing it, and calling it good, but really, my story isn't over. Is it ever over when it comes to our health?
I think I'll post a few more times. Let's see if I can keep doing this until I'm back to 170, and then I'll print the whole thing, and put it to bed.
