Hello..I am back...

Well hello..

I am back..

I have been gone entirely too long...and I am sorry about that. Things have been crazy! so let me catch you up..

We moved from Colorado! That is the best news ever! My hubby quit the job at the church..we picked a place to move and here we are. We are living in a suburb of Louisville KY. We bought a house and made the move. And couldn't be happier. As you know things at the church were super many things happened and it was affecting my hubby health wise, he was having panic attacks and bleeding ulcers. It was affecting our kids and our family so we quit! For the sake of our sanity, our health and our marriage. People wonder why churches get bad names...well I can see why after being in a church like that for 2 years.

Ok, now band wise. Things are ok. I miss my Dr already. He gave me a big fill and wished me luck before my move. I was at 169 when we moved. Between fast food meals while we got settled and got our kitchen unpacked, and not working out for a few weeks I have gone up a few lbs, 6 actually...but I am back in control now and the scale is moving back down. It was fun to eat like a semi normal person for a few weeks..but I really missed working out and my healthy food. And I really hated the scale staying the same and hated even more when it started to climb up. But like I said, I am getting back in control now. My kitchen is unpacked, healthy groceries are bought and back to working out I go.

This move is good for so many reasons. The big one being away from the unhealthy situation at the church. But being out of ministry is allowing us to feel normal again. When I get off work now, I don't have to worry about what I need to do at the church..I can just spend time with my family, my kids and my husband. We can go out and not worry about being seen doing something someone thinks is "wrong". I am not being watched, judged or critisized. and boy does it feel great!

I am a little worried about getting my last 10-15 lbs off. I can't afford to get a fill now that I have moved away from my Dr, and there my fills were free. But...then again, I should be able to do this on my own. I want it bad enough. I want to get down to 155 by here I go!

Now I am off to catch up on reading about everyone else! I have missed everyone!


  1. I am so glad to hear that you are happier now. My husband grew up being very involved in a church because his father was a pastor and he said it was a very unhealthy environment. It's too bad that religion can sometimes be turned into a bad thing. Good luck on getting to goal.

  2. Glad to see you have made such a great change for you and your family!!
