Well that was interesting....

There have been many tongues wagging about my current situation. Not that I owe anyone an explanation, or that I am going to give one, but to put to bed all of the rumours... Yes I am single... This wasn't a decision that was made lightly. The biggest thing I am concerned about is my children. I have seen comments on other people's facebook walls, I have seen the comments on my soon to ex husband's walls. The only thing, I can say is, no one knows what goes on behind close doors. The comments that have been put up for all the world to see are not benefiting anyone. Least of all my children. The more things change, the more chaos there is in there life. At the end of the day, I have 2 children to raise into happy, caring people, and I hope that with patience and understanding they can overcome all of this. Everything happens for a reason, I wish my former spouse all of the health, happiness and success one can get out of life. But to the people that are talking in plain sight on facebook, honestly, get a hobby! The only ones who are being hurt are the children... And let's face it, haven't they been hurt enough?

Thanks to everyone!

Today I posted my pictures on facebook, I kind of felt like I had hit the half way mark in my goal. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who said a kind word! It has been a rough and busy couple of weeks around our household. The support I have been receiving from my family and friends has been incredible! I am starting to mend, and I will be having another visit to the fracture clinic tomorrow over my beautiful big toe! I have to say, I am truly missing work and my work life. Last week I was walking with a cane, and felt older. I look back and remember when my sister and I use to joke about people turning 35 and how they were old. Now that I am older then that, I think geesh, we didn't know anything! Life is a journey, doesn't matter the age... And I want to thank everyone who reads my blog, shares a kind word, or even just gives a good thought... Because it means the world to me!

Spot the difference?

102...don't mind if I do!

So the newest number is in.... 245!!! I weighed in at 245 lbs! So not only did I meet that 100lbs mark I surpassed. What a great feeling!!! I think that this milestone was such a big one for me because, I can't ever remember being this small. I can't remember being lighter then 260. It seems odd, how much we focus on a number. The number doesn't define who we are. It is mearly a guide to tell us our body structure has increased/decreased. Sometimes there is far too much focus on the number. One thing I want to teach my children is that a person isn't about what is on the outside, but what you find when you look beneath the surface. Heavy, thin doesn't change who I am. Being positive with a healthier outlook on life, makes me a better person, and teaching my children love and happiness is the bigger lesson.
