Move Forward Friday, March 11

I have had a lot of stress going on of late and my food and workouts have been suffering, to say the least.  I had lost 2.2 lbs last week, but gained 3.4 lbs this week.  There is much going on, but I have to figure out how to handle this and move forward.  I do not want to go into 46 (45 is approaching too quickly for me to finish losing the weight before it arrives) being overweight and not happy in my own skin.   This is about me finding what works for me with my life now.  I figured out what worked for me 7+ years ago, but it is not the same now.  I was a single mother with family support and had workout buddies, etc.  Now, I have a husband and children and my mother to take care of and it isn’t always easy to make the schedule work.  I need to figure out how to juggle the schedule.  I am blessed to have a supportive and helpful husband and children, so I am not handling everything completely by myself.  

I have made some big changes for myself since originally starting Weight Watchers, I decided to focus on real food and not fake foods.  For instance, I am not eating fat free cheese and the like.  I am focusing on eating real food and limiting the processed food more.  I enjoy making things from scratch and cooking for my family.  It is just a process for me to figure out all the moving parts.  I’m a work in progress.  Some days I seem to be progressing better than others, but each day is a new day to make it work.  I hope you have a blessed Friday and a wonderful weekend!
