Sorry Guys I cannot make Those Kinds of Promises

I can't believe that it's been MONTHS since I last posted.

Not that YOU missed me. (all four of you) It's just that alot has been going on, a lot that led me far away from my desktop.

Today's a new day - I'm 30 lbs. thinner! Ya Hoo! I'm into size 10 jeans, and look darn skinny in em. I've weaned off all that awful medication that my old neurologist had me taking and I've been religious about doing physical therapy, which may or may not always help.

My mom had an exacerbation of CHF and her COPD, which caused her to sleep 24-7, not eating and lethargic. Her respirations were shallow and lungs were full of fluid. I was pretty worried about her, spent a lot of time taking care of her, another reason I couldn't blog. She's a little better now. At least she's trying somewhat. She's kinda crabby too, that's always a good sign.

I'm going to spend the day-no afternoon- with my husband Christmas shopping. Of course, the weather has turned biting cold today and we are going to an outdoor mall.
my luck.

On a side note, just because I've not been posting doesn't mean that I've not been reading. So you out there...keep on typing! I'll try to keep up, but seriously guys, no promises.

Hi Jackee! I HAVE missed you! It sounds like you've had a lot of worrisome stuff going on. Completely understandable that you haven't had the time or the inclination for blogging. I hope your mom is on the mend.

Congratulations on your awesome weight loss! That is terrific! I've just about given up on the idea of losing my extra 30 pounds. I'm actually entertaining the idea of trying hypnosis. Gawd! I can't believe I'm that hopeless!

I hope you're taking care of yourself. I'll be thinking of you and hoping things are taking a good turn, for your sake as well as your mom's.

Oh Jackee, I am so jealous of your weight loss. You inspire me to keep on trying with mine. Hope things are taking a turn for the better for you and your mom. I'll keep you in my prayers. happy shopping!

Thanks to you both for your encouragement! I am so non motivated to lose the weight, seriously, it was all the Weight Watcher cult stuff that helped me do it.

Wow, 30 lbs. how amazing! I am on my way to that goal too. I joined Curves and am on a better eating plan. I have less stress in my life this past year, which was a big part of the weight gain. Life is good and I'm glad it's going better for you.
