I have been recording my food (and drink) on My Fitness Pal for 2 weeks and have lost 5 pounds and 2 inches off my tummy. Button blouses are buttoning without the little wiggle. I have had a number of social occasions and some sad days so I am feeling positive about my results. I have been very much inspired by The Hostess' amazing results and realize that it is all about perseverance not magic.
Tomorrow, Maman and I are going to a Blue Christmas Advent service. Our local Anglican and United
churches are holding a service for those who may be a little sad in the holiday season. What a great idea! I do believe that there are many opportunities for support whether church-based or community-based. Tonight, I am going to another carol singing party at the home of one of my travelling partners.
I haven't seen her since we parted company and I went to Tucson. It seems like a lifetime ago.
If you have noticed disappearing posts on my blog, it is because I am uncertain. Right now, I am dealing with somebody else's mood disorder. I have dealt with it before and cannot be sure of the outcome this time. Part of me wants to write about this illness that destroys families and relationships but I have a concern because mood disorders often come to a head with hypomania and then a hospitalization. Everything settles back down, drugs are tweaked and on we go until next time. No one knows why or when. If this sounds familiar to you, you are not alone!
In the meantime, I have snowflake nails.
