It looks like we all need some inspiration

Thanks, Trixie, for providing some in your last post. I wonder if the rest of the folks will pop in and read it. I hope so.

I'm about where I was last year, in terms of weight management. I'm maintaining that 35 or so pound loss. I'm still walking 4-6 times a week, about 3 miles.

We moved out of my mom's and two weeks later, Paul got laid off because the company decided to reorganize itself. So, the stress level is way up. I figure that walking and writing regularly in my journal helps the stress. As does my choir singing. My part-time job helps pay the bills, which gives us a little more time to job hunt. So, maintaining is my whole goal. I don't want to let the emotional roller-coaster our uncertain finances put us on make me start overeating and couch-potatoing. That just leads to health problems I can't afford to get fixed--no insurance, of course.

Anyway, I hope you all are OK. I haven't been reading blogs, so I don't know what's going on with you all. I hope to catch up as I have a bit more time, since I'm not frantically unpacking boxes anymore.

I am so glad to see you, Mama Rose. Sounds like you are doing fairly well even with some challenges. And boy, have we all been having them in some form or fashion. All we can do is keep our heads up, our eyes forward and keep on keeping on. It also helps a little to remember that we don't have to solve all of our problems all at the same time, but we do have to take care of ourselves as well as we can at any time.

I've thought about trying to revive this place. I think we're all a bit undermotivated and overwhelmed.

Good for you for maintaining and still walking!

I hope the job hunt goes well!
