Today is a new day: Initial Weigh In

About this time last year.  I stopped.  Stopped anything that had to do with trying to lose weight.  I needed a mental break from everything weight loss.  I took it and I felt much better as a human being.  I am glad I got my brain sorted out, cause big change was on the horizon. 

 In June my husband lost his job and we spent a nine months searching and being unemployed.  He has had two temp jobs and recently got a permanent job.  Not only did we have the job loss, we have decided to become 100% debt free.  With the loss of a job it motivated us to move into one of our small rental homes and hopefully we can sell our largest home next year anticipating the market picks up in our area.

 This week I am moving for the second time in the past four months and it will be a semi-permanent move into a small two bedroom house.  Jumbbled I know but I so has my life the past year!!

 Those are all stories for another day, but needless to say I am grateful to have taken a break from weight loss.  My younger sister recently had a baby and she is hosting a weight loss challenge and I through nudging, I have decided to join. This is the first time I have joined a challenge and haven’t had a plan.  Last year when I joined a New Years challenge I had a distinct plan and I miserably failed/gave it up.  But I came a way a healthier mental person! 

 Now my body is crying for attention. It is time to get back to work.  Since we have been unemployed we froze all bills that were not crucial necessities including my gym membership.  And starting next week I will have a gym membership again and will be moved back to the town where the gym is at.

 So today was the initial weigh in for the challenge.  Here is my pics.  I hope to get a plan in place after I get moved next week.  But until then, looking forward.
