I've been silent for a long time now and I guess it's time for me to break the silence. There are times when I think that I am so anti-social and perhaps I just might need some therapy. What have I been doing since I last posted a blog seven months ago? Well, lets' see, I retired after 34 years of working at the same place(WooHoo). It has taken me some time to transition into not getting up early every morning and going to work but, for the most part I'm lovin it. I've traveled just a bit over the summer, Indiana, Texas, Florida. I did however think that I would be so bored with nothing to do if I retired....not so! I think that almost everyone under the sun has found some project that I can help them with. I have discovered that I have a problem with the word "NO" and I'll need help forming the letters (it will come sooner or later I will master the "NO" word). Now for the obvious question, how have I been doing with my weight loss efforts! in the first few months of retirement not so well, I started cheating on my husband; I started having an affair with my refrigerator and packed on about 10 lbs. My husband found out and threatened to divorce me so I joined curves about two months ago, started working out three times a week and I have made some progress to my surprise and I am very please especially in Inches in my hips, thighs and stomach(all the places I need help). Anyway, so far...so good. Now if only I can survive the holidays.... as always my biggest struggle is with depression and the urge to give up when thing doesn't happen when I think they should. How's that for breaking the silence.
