OK This is the deal...

My life has been absolutely insane this summer. I had the flu and was out forever, my computer broke and I've been without one for two months now, I packed up my entire house to move, did not move so unpacked my whole house and I'm getting a divorce.

As you can imagine, this blog or eating healthy has not even been on my mind. I measured my waist in June and was at 40"!!! I think that's the highest ever. I've been severely depressed and have eaten ice cream and cherry coke just about every day.

BUT... I've been slowly feeling much better over the last couple of weeks. I still have not had the energy or motivation to exercise, but I have been eating a lot better and the cravings for ice cream and coke have mostly gone away. I'm starting to feel happy and happy means losing weight :)

My hips aren't really doing anything, but over all I'm dropping :) I feel really achy and that could be why my hips aren't losing. They feel swollen or something. Actually, all of my joints have felt achy the last couple of weeks. I don't know if it's all the lugging furniture and boxes I've been doing by myself or if it's just my body's reaction to the stress and depression. Hopefully it goes away soon.
