Yes, I'm back in the Fat Mom corner of blogland! I've missed writing and the accountability it gave me, but most of all I missed all my blog friends. It's incomprehensible how much this community motivates me in my own personal weight loss challenge. Let's be honest, I haven't been motivated lately and that's the major reason why the blog was put on the back burner. I'm still not 100% motivated, but this is a step in the right direction. I have to face the facts that I screwed up.
I finally reached a major goal of being under 300 pounds and I stayed there for several weeks. It was such an incredible feeling; I felt amazing! Slowly, the number began to creep back up. It only reached 305, but it was still enough of a kick in the ass for me. Hopefully the scale will start going down again!
Work is going great and I've already received several complimentary emails from the corporate office in New York. The Compliance Officer and Operations Manager have both sent emails about how awesome I am. I mean they would be stupid if they didn't realize that already! It's been hard to juggle work, kids, baseball, food, bills, life! Though somehow it gets easier as time goes by. Sometimes I miss being home with the boys, but then I come home and walk into a house of screaming kids and praise the Higher Aboves that I am able to have some sanity throughout the day.
I've been checking periodically on everyone's progress and blogs but I have not commented. I promise I will soon let you know that I'm reading. Thank you to everyone who has stuck by and sent emails asking how I am. It meant more than words can express!
