One year

Friday, November 30, 2018

The 16th of December will mark one year. One year since I asked my husband for a divorce. One year of helping kiddos cope. One year of eating convient not healthy. One year of job changes and moves. One year of chaos. One year of forgetting to take care of myself. As I reach this mark of the day my emotional life started to heal I realize that I have grossly neglected my physical health. In the last year I lost twenty pounds and then added 40 on. I am now at a point where I weigh more today than I did throughout any of three pregnancies. It is time that I begin to repair my body. So today is day number one. Iā€™m going to heal my body one day at a time.
