I'm Back

I'm back!!  Thanks for the concern about my absence.  I went with my local family sans J-boy (mom, sister & 2 nephews) to visit my out of town sister and her family ( husband, two children & 1 foster baby) for a couple of days.  It was great.  We had a blast.  I am one of those extremely lucky people whose family gets along.  We had a very good time.

Before we left I was really, really in a bad place with the dieting, and my weight had started creeping up.  I was very concerned about how to handle things while I was gone.  The trip to visit my sister was a surprise, so she had no time to plan meals for 10 people as opposed to 4 and a baby.  She is a healthy eater, and always has fresh fruit and vegetables on hand, so I wasn't too worried.  I decided that I would offer to prepare meals and if that wasn't an option just eat whatever was served in moderate amounts.  I was not going to make any imposition on her.

It turns out the whole mental break from the constant battle with what to eat/when to eat/how much to eat was just what I needed.  I came back relaxed and recharged at the same time.  I'm ready to tackle this last 32 pounds and move forward with my healthy lifestyle!!


  1. Glad you had a good trip and glad you are back. Sometimes just a change of pace for a short time can do wonders for our frame of mind.

  2. It certainly seemed to be what I needed this time.
