It's time to say Goodbye

Unfortunately recent events that have happened in our family has led me to the decision that it's time to shut down this blog for the time being. I just don't have the energy or the time to keep up two blogs. Right now I need to handle this family situation and it's going to require a lot of time, focus, and energy.

However, I am not going to give up on losing weight, getting healthy and exercising. I refuse to let these recent events get in the way of me being healthy. I truly believe you can handle a family crisis and still focus on weight loss. There are 24 hours in a day and in that time...I can exercise for 20 to 30 mins, drink lots of water and watch portion control. It is a simple plan that I can stick to.

I'm going to stay focused on being healthy and losing weight because I believe it will give me more energy to handle this family situation. When you feel good about yourself physically, you have the mental stamina to handle whatever garbage is thrown at you. I'm going to do my best to find a healthier alternative to handle a crisis instead of drowning my sorrows in a bag of potato chips and chocolate chip cookies. I think taking a walk outside is a better stress reliever, don't you think?

I don't want these recent events to be an excuse for me to gain back the weight that I have lost. I'm only 20 lbs away from my weight goal and NOTHING will prevent me from losing that weight before the year is over. Next year when I write down my New Year's Resolution, losing weight is NOT going to be on that list because I WILL reach my goal.

I'm not sure when I'll be back to post updates. However, I'm not going to disappear from blog land completely, so you can still find me here. Since I still got some weight to lose, I'll still be visiting your blogs! Just because I won't be on this blog doesn't mean I don't need motivation. Your supportive comments on my blog have meant a lot to me and I have gained much inspiration from reading your blogs too.

I started this blog about 7 months ago and I've enjoyed every moment of it. Thank you all for taking time out of your busy lives to read and comment on my little blog...it has been a great ride! Before I go, I leave with you my last "Food for Thought". I hope this thought will help you along your journey to a healthier you!

I have been looking for a good book to help me get through my diet. In the end I googled it and found this site http://www.hungryforweightloss.com.

They are giving away a free ebook called "365 tips for healthy living". I didn't expect it to be any good because it's free but it's actually brilliant so I thought i'd share it here :)
