Life Turmoils and Triumphs

So, as you know - this is my little world of rambling about nothing. My mini-chickies, my struggles, my happiness, my food, my weirdness.

Sometimes life hands you triumphs: I've lost 15 lbs. since starting Weight Watchers in January. I feel so much better, and even though I have a longgggg way to go to be in their "healthy weight guidelines" but I feel empowered about the direction we are going. I'm proud of KK for sticking with it for 10 weeks.

Sometimes life hands you turmoil: We have been dealing with a lot of loss/death in our small community in the past few weeks. It makes you sad for the woulda/coulda/shoulda's of life. It has made my peeps ask questions I wasn't really prepared to answer.

I guess you just have to roll with and make the best you can with what you've got!

You've had to deal with a lot lately. I think you're an amazing woman and you've done an amazing job.

Carrie... that is very sweet of you to say! Thank you so much, it totally made my day!

Chicky, first of all, congratulations on the weight loss. That kind of dilgence is empowering and if you can deal with that there's little else. Eating, afterall, is vital to our well-being, but managing overeating is mastery of self!

Life lessons are everywhere aren't they? I am so sorry for the recent losses you have endured. But if it makes you think of woulda/coulda/shoulda then maybe it's a thought that needs to be examined more.

What are your woulda/coulda/shouldas?

Regret is a heavy burden. Worse than a few extra pounds, I think.

In the meanwhile, you have much cause for joy, your peeps, your WW success, and a terrific blog.
