Well here I am again. This time I weigh more than the last time I began. I was doing well until last summer when we were double-crossed by family and were forced to uproot and chaange living arrangements along with other things. I let the stress of that very difficult time get to me when what I should have done was just cowgirl up and just keep going. My husband went through the same as I did (his own father turnened against him). Well he and I both decided that we are not going to make excuses for ourselves any more and get back to trying to be healthy again. I started back up just a couple weeks ago and am down 3.5 pounds now (was 158 now 154.5). I am reminded of a quote that a co-worker of mine said (he's also a competetive body builder); he said " don't keep starting over, just stop giving up".
