Dropping in

Hi all! Just dropping in to check in and let you all know that i'm still here. As always, life has been crazy busy. We've had quite a shake-up at the office, and my boys are keeping me hopping at home. Weight loss wise, things remain "ok." I'm exercising regularly now, i'm definitely in a groove with getting up at 4:30 and going to the gym. I signed up for 5 sessions with the personal trainer, so that's going well. Not many pounds have dropped, but the trainer assures me that they will, I just need to keep the faith. Eating is another story.....food is a struggle for me and I'm realizing that it always will be. It's never going to be easy...but it just may get easier. The good news is that i'm not completely out of control, just not making the best choices.

The great news is that I really feel like i'm making strides with the mental aspect of this journey. I'm accepting myself, being more forgiving of myself, and I've stopped looking at this like every bad choice is going to break me nutritionally. I have a long way to go, a LONG way to go, but i'll get there.

Medically, things are a different story. The doctors just can't figure out my shoulder pain, so I have lots more tests to do. Hopefully there will be an answer. "You're just a medical mystery" is really not doing it for me.

Hope things are well with all of you. I've been a bad blogging buddy, but I WILL get back in the swing of things!
