I’m late with this week’s post but life happens. I got notification earlier in the week that one of my cousins had passed away, and the funeral services were this weekend, finishing up today with the funeral Mass. So I’ve been a bit preoccupied as we had to travel to be with family, which was far more important than updating this thing.

Finally the scale is creeping downward and the holiday regain is about gone! I’m hoping this continues. Still struggling to get motivated to exercise though. Perhaps I should focus on getting more sleep first, because the lack of sleep is hurting my want to exercise. When I am tired, the last thing I want to do is work out. I know I’m not sleeping enough but I have so many things I’m juggling right now that it’s hard to get them all done in the 24 hours I am given each day.

The past few weeks have been a blur. As the school year has progressed, life has gotten progressively busier. Part of it is by choice, and part of it is the natural progression of the school year. And yet another part of it is the new habits and behaviors one must adopt when choosing to have weight loss surgery.
We talked in our weekly weight loss support group tonight about how life tends to drastically change as new behaviors are implemented that were not previously a part of one’s life and how this might place strain on relationships you have with others. I am fortunate in that my social support network understands the importance of these changes, and that they are supportive of my decision to take control of my health in this way. I am also fortunate in that my husband is following the exact same path as I am, and that he too is sympathetic to the behavior changes, because he is making them too.
In all of this, though, I feel as though I am losing balance–there is a disturbance in the Force that is Me.
