Approaching The Anniversary.....

Today's weigh in has me at....


That is a 1.5 pound loss for the week. I really would like to be in the 122's by my anniversary, but 1.8 pounds is a lot to lose in 4 days. Hmmmm....I will work towards that, but not be disappointed if I don't hit my goal. I have definitely come a long way this year. I have learned a lot and am loving the way my life is heading!

I didn't think I would actually make it to my one year anniversary of my healthy lifestyle journey. I didn't know that I would make it to week 2 ha! I have learned so much this past year. I also had a couple of pretty rough experiences this past year. My grandpa passed away and instead of pushing away my feelings, I ran into them head on.

When my parents told me about their divorce, I described in the post that I was still fuzzy. Well, 10 months hasn't made that any more clear. I am still extremely fuzzy and trying to cope. Lately, I have been trying to really deal with it and move forward, but it is so hard. Especially because they aren't even legally separated, no papers have been filed, I hate my mother's boyfriend, my family doesn't talk and all my parents do is argue. Some days are easier than others, but I will be helping my dad file the divorce papers this week. That will be rough, but at least it will give me a step towards some closure.

These were 2 of the rougher experiences I have ever had, but I didn't let my depression about either stop me from LIVING MY LIFE. It may have had moments where it slowed me down, but I refuse to give up! I want to be a person people look to for inspiration. I want to help others cope in positive ways even after bad things do happen. I have learned to stay positive in dark days, because the light is at the end of the tunnel....even if you have to chase it for a while :)
