To start off with that should be a good calorie count but if you find yourself not loosing if it was me would cut it down some but not to where you feel your starving.
I know how it is when our young leaves it is not easy and don't let that run you to the fridge,please. it will not make you feel a bit better, but you will be upset with yourself. Instead turn the way you look at her leaving around, that you have to keep yourself in top condition for her and your son. Decide on what you can do for fun in exercise, look at your menu and write everything down that you eat. If you want you can send it to me at the end of each week, if it helps you. Just click on my picture and email me your menu. I post mine in Golden girls, they have a place pinned there just for that.
Do you like to dance ,
when you do that house work turn on the music and wiggle that bode! Have some fun Angela and most of all find something to laugh at ,
it is great medicine for our soul, movie, old memories etc.. Find something you like to do and start doing that instead .
A boy of the age of 12 should keep you moving! Is he active in sports, if not does he like games , what I am getting at is precious moments made or not forgotten, doing things together make them even more special. Like swimming, hiking, skating...etc...
You have made the first step Angela by coming here and it is a great place! Keep on walking Angela, keep on...
