3.26.19 Am back once again to help myself stay on track. I've dropped 20 lbs over the past nine months which is good, but I wasn't trying. I haven't had an outside job since May of last year as I have been home taking care of my dad, and I am no longer taking my insulin so who knows. It doesn't hurt that my dad doesn't eat much; guess I have been following his lead so to speak. I'm happy anyway!

My goals are simple...to exercise five times or more a week (minimum of walking 5 miles a week), increase my water intake (I drink entirely too much regular soda, but feel it's better than drinking diet...don't like the artificial sweeteners), and control my calorie intake by tracking my dietary intake. I'm diabetic and would like to come off my meds. I've done it before, so I know it can be done!

I have another stimulus to doing this. Don't know why my health can't be enough, but it's never been that way for me. Anyway, my 40th HS class reunion is this year. It would be nice if I could get back down to my HS weight...that's a very lofty goal, so it's not likely; however, I'd be thrilled to be closer to it than being farther away from it! LOL!! I'm only 14 pounds away from what I weighed in 2010 so that's good! I'm sure I can do better...just need to apply myself!

    My MIL mostly had junk other than the house and car and the 2 brothers had already taken what they wanted and we sold the junk, what we could of it. They had gone through a lot of her money. One charged her $18,000 to take her on a vacation that she paid for. My dad had already given my brother most of the valuable stuff. No big deal. I'm glad it is behind us and all we have to do now is live our lives. Good luck tackling the sorting.

    For most of my life I could wear my high school clothes so I wouldn't be surprised if I had some ancient clothes here plus other high school stuff. I am working on it though and did get through hubby's sock drawer and my sock drawer and underwear drawers. It's a start.

    I hope things do work out well for everyone. My brother took everything when my dad did and I didn't get anything. My hubby was executor of his mom's estate and trustee of the trust and his 2 brothers were not happy and didn't make it easy on him. We don't have any contact now and like it. It sounds like you all will be helping each other.

    My hubby and I have both been through what you are going through so we know how you feel. Hugs.

    Staying with your cousin sounds like a great perk. May as well enjoy the trip there and get some rest.

    I have that in common with your mom and dad. i don't like prescription meds. My mom died from renal failure caused by an arthritis med. My dad had a heart attack caused by an arthritis med.

    Our weather is weird too. They warned us this would happen from global warming.

    I'm sure your dad could get a wheelchair. I have one.
