Hello! I know there's probably been speculation as to my whereabouts, general health, etc., and I can't blame you. If I tried to tell you how crazy my summer has been, you wouldn't even believe me. Anyway, I'm finally getting around to my intro, so here it is!
My name is Jana and I've been around OWOA since the beginning. I started out at 212 lbs and in November of last year reached a final weight of 147. This summer I had my gall bladder removed and gained five pounds because I couldn't exercise or do much moving around at all. So now I'm somewhere around 149 and heading for that 145-148 area again.
It might not seem like much, but I am struggling. Struggling with exercising on a regular basis, struggling with not eating too much, struggling with eating the right things. A lot of this has to do with all the stress in my life right now - I homeschool, I'm teaching a high school level English class, and my husband is out of town (WAY out of town - in China) three weeks a month. Plus a lot of other stuff I won't get into. It's hard to sit down and plan weekly menus when I can't even find time to do a ten minute workout.
So that's how it is around here right now. I won't give up, but sometimes I do feel like I'm just hanging on by a thread!
