It’s been a few weeks since I posted that I was defeated and feeling low. And in the last few weeks I found a podcast that has really been helpful to me in my journey. I also joined weight watchers online. The first week I lost 6 lbs and this past week I lost 0.8 lbs. I am taking it one day at a time and listening to the podcast like crazy. It’s called Half Size Me. It’s hosted by a woman who has lost 170 pounds and kept it off for 3 years. She is a mother of 3 small children. She interviews people who have lost significant amounts of weight and kept it off. I imagine the feeling I get when I listen to her podcast is the feeling and comfort alcoholics get when they go to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. It’s nice to hear somebody like me who struggles with weight in the way that I do. I will expound later, but for now I listen to it every spare minute I have. It keeps me going through the day and is helping me be more forgiving of myself in some ways and more structured in others.
In other news, Henry is 8 months old!!!!
He is the light of our lives and worth every minute of the wait. My husband is such a wonderful father and Henry adores him.
We are both exhausted all of the time, but we help each other by switching Henry nights every other night. Henry sleeps through the night on some nights, but not all. And, he gets up very early. ☺️
Well, I just wanted to say hey!
