It finally happened!

I was granted my divorce on Thursday, April 27! It is such a relief and a load off of my shoulders. The past 4.5 years has been a huge lesson and it has made me so strong as a person today. I am taking care of myself mentally and physically one day at a time. April has been a good month for me and viola, tomorrow is May 1!

Breathe deep and live life to it's fullest. Thank you Lord for all you have given me. Amen.

Simple Life

Wow, how time flies! I just read my last post and it was from 4/8. Life is treating me well. I have a new room mate Toni renting out my sun room for a few weeks so she can get on her feet. It was ironic, because I was in that same position 12 years ago when I first came to FL. Destiny is also staying with me until she gets her Independent Living status and can get her own apartment. I love having people around and also ones I don't have to take care of. That is definitely different for me.

My weight loss is yo-yoing. I lost 4 lbs. two weeks ago and gained 2.6 lbs. this past week. I have been doing really well and hoping I am retaining water with that last gain. I can not stress over the watching the scale, because this is my lifestyle change for the rest of my life.

Work is going well. Our new girl Nancy starts Wednesday and hope everything works out as planned. We really need to balance our team. I plan to stay as simple as possible dealing with work and life. Be grateful for each day and live life to its fullest. I am very blessed and I have my faith.

Here is a recent picture. I love this blouse I bought for my birthday. It is magical... I get so many compliments when I wear it.

Staying focused

I can not believe it is April 8th already right now! I have been back to work three weeks and have to say last week was my best one. We have finally got control over the jobs at work and everyone is back in their place. I weighed-in today and lost 1 lb. and I am excited! I have been working on staying focused on my weight loss and getting back into routine. I have to keep up this pace. Get back into routine with activity. Gotta take it slow because I have a bulging disc I found out about this week. It will be okay and as I continue to lose weight and exercise, it will get stronger.

I will try not to stay away for as long this time.
