Good morning, all. I need to work out and start running errands. I skipped working out yesterday and just slept a good portion of the day. My insomnia from the weekend caught up with me. I've been a little less stressed lately though, and that's definitely been reflected in how I'm eating and the numbers on the scale. It was so fun to change my avatar today. Yey!

I'm thinking about starting weight lifting again. I haven't done it in months, but since I just paid off the home gym my husband bought, it seems like it should get used rather than collecting dust. He was so insistant about how often he would use it, but in the 8 months or so we've had it, he's used it once :lol:

Good afternoon! Where is everyone? I thought I was missing in action. I am doing good. Through all that has been going on I am happy to announce that I am standing still at 159!! These last 39 pounds are soo hard to get off. Before I know it August will be here. I really need to get off my butt and workout. I miss all the encouragement that we always gave each other. Hopefully after this month I will be back on track. This month I have to go to court to get sole custody of my children(my husband wants joint). I am moving by the 1st of the month but still haven't found an apartment yet. I can still move in with my brother and his family if I have to. I just wanted to let you all know I'm okay. I miss you all..and I promise to get back on track ASAP! Love to all.

Jeniqua-So good to hear from you. I share custody of my daughter but I am the custodial parent. My ex only sees her every other weekend. Considering his track record...that's about the best. Glad you're holding steady with your weight...considering the stresss you're under, that is totally great!

Chelle-I kind of have the insomnia bug too. I can't get to sleep until really late at night and don't sleep sound at all. Then when morning hits and I have to get's almost a no-go situation. It's a struggle to keep the eyes open and get up and move.

I better go sew on Kayla's swimsuit robe thing. Tonight is her first night of swimming lessons. She'll be hopping mad if I don't finish it for her.

Jeniqua, it was so great to hear from you! I've been thinking about you. I am just about all moved out. My h and I are finishing up emptying the old apartment out tomorrow, then that's it. He stops sleeping over here, and the seperation is official.

I've been working my tail off again this week. I've hit a plateau and I'm just trying to push past it. Anyway, I hope all of you ladies are having a good week. BBL.

I thought I would bring this back to the first page. It's Thursday, but didn't see the need to start a new thread.

Hope everyone is doing well. BBL
