Wow! So many new faces and I'm happy to see some familar ones. I'm glad you are all here because I think it's time for me to come back home to 3FC.
Last fall, I got the shingles, twice. That was bad enough and the steroids caused me to put some weight back on. This past February, it got a million times worse. My father very unexpectedly passed away. I have never experienced anything like that in my life and it has taken me a lot to come to grips with that. While dealing with it, MRC went completely
out the window. Just when I thought I was ready to start back, I had to say goodbye to my 18 1/2 old cat. To top it off, we almost had to say goodbye to a second cat in the same week, but we have been nursing her back to health. It's been a lot.
I started back at MRC about a month ago. It's going well and I've lost about 10 pounds. To be honest, and most of you may find this bizarre, I have NO CLUE what I weigh right now. I haven't looked at my weight since February. And to be honest, I'm not willing to face that number knowing where I used to be. The counselors do not tell me what I weigh, only what I've lost. The jeans are getting baggy, so to me, that tells me I'm doing something right.
Anyway, I thought I would just check in because I always loved the support on this board. It's good to be back.
