The journey continues....

Everyday life continues to amaze me and change me in the process. 2 years ago I was starting to wrap up my life in Europe. I was already starting the packing process, saying good byes and looking forward to my journey back to the US and seeing what life had in store for me.

It's not been an easy 2 years.

As you know, I said farewell to the boyfriend of 3 years...emotionally difficult but what needed to happen for my own mental and physical health. Over the course of our relationship, I gained 60 pounds, mainly due to stress eating and drinking...its easier to keep a harmonious relationship when we are not stuck in the same apartment

I moved back to the US, and in that first year I lost 30 pounds, half of what I had gained.

I met Mike, and slowly went back into old habits when the relationship started to go downhill and he pulled away. I did not recognize it for what it was, but I gained back 8 of those lost pounds. I went back into focusing on an on-line gaming world.

Single now for 3 months, I have once again started to focus back on my health, and have lost those 8 pounds, plus another 7. I no longer play games on-line and my TV is rarely turned on.

I have another 30 still to lose. My focus is on health eating habits - no more skipping meals or eating junk food. With a focus on being more physically active - no more sitting on the couch at night watching TV.

The journey towards happiness continues....stay tuned....

Thanks for sharing Kimberly, I had been curious to know about that. I bet you can do whatever it is you set your mind to do – go for it!
