It has been difficult here. None of us feels very good, and we all suffer from overwhelm to one degree or another. The cats are all well, as is the puppy. Kitty has been assimilated into our feline Borg, so all is well.
With part of my inheritance, we have paid my son-in-love’s attorney, fixed DD24’s vehicle, and DH’s; soon DH will have his cataract surgeries. My part of this? I intend to take Soul Restoration I and II. I need to find the answers I seek, about my body and my life. I am trusting my soul-art to reveal it to me.
On January 1, I weighed 313lbs; today I weigh 297.2. I cannot exercise, so I do it by daily eating 1650 calories and drinking 150 ounces of fluid. I am eating pretty much the same things I’ve been eating, including my homemade pizza. I try not to think about much of anything, except one step, one meal, one bite at a time.
Allan Klein (almostgastricbypass2.blogspot.com) is running the challenge I’m taking part in; his calculations set my caloric and fluid intake. Chris Oursler (chrislivessimple.blogspot.com), Diane Carbonell (fittothefinish.com) and Kim Bensen (kimbensen.com) write blogs that are being very helpful to me; check them out!!
I missed my blogiversary – AGAIN! Two years on March 3 – who’d a thunk it?! I keep thinking that I’ll organize a blogging schedule and plan this thing out, but the reality of my life is that my diet, and attempts to make art, get most of the attention I have left after doing what I can for my daughter.
I am not able, yet, to visualize myself or my life at the end of this journey. I do my best to recognize issues and fears as they rear their ugly heads, but I am not always successful. We renewed the lease for one more year. That gives us till the end of April 2013 to decide what we are doing, and who the “we” is. By that time, I hope my SIL will be a free man, and our menagerie can hit the road. Gypsy caravan anyone?
