Yes, it's probably been closer to 2 years. I can't believe the time has gone so fast, but it will be 2 years at the end of May since the kids and I moved to California. How does the time go so darn fast!!
I haven't had a computer for a while, but once I got one again, I got back on here and it was just like coming home. So many of the same faces, and lots of new ones too and I could still feel the same support and friendship that I've always found here.
So much has changed in the last 2 years! I don't want to bore you with it all, but I did get divorced, the four youngest kids and I moved to Southern California where my family is, I went back to work (after being a SAHM for 8 years!), I got a tattoo
, I learned to ride a motorcylce and got a Harley
, I became a grandma, and I'm actually happy for the first time in a very long time. It's so amazing, I'm still the same person that I always was, but after losing the weight I finally felt like I was free to be me. That sounds kind of dumb, but I was always so busy trying to hide and not be noticed, and now I don't care if people notice me or what they think. I'm just happy and finally having fun again.
The bad thing is that I have put back on about 30 pounds.
I'm waitressing in a restaurant that has wonderful food and it's all gone to my butt!! I've finally been doing better though and been going to the gym again and bringing dinner from home to work with me and the weight is coming back off. It's so easy to fall back into old habits and the weight goes back on so quickly.
Being away from here wasn't good either. I really missed the constant support that I always found here and it's so good to be among friends again!
Thanks so much for the warm welcome!
