Re: Anyone else? (Weight loss)

Update as of March 17th

I lost 6 pounds a month starting in January and now am at 19 pounds down.

My goal is to lose 4 or 5 more pounds.

Sending good health wishes to everyone! :D

Now, all the in-laws know that we are moving away!

He received a phone call that was intended to cause him to feel guilty for leaving to move many beautiful hours away! His mom is "sad about it." He stayed in this location for ten horrible years and it is time to move away! I pointed out why is it okay with his relatives that his brother lives in an...

Re: Reality Versus What sounds nice

Thank you Phred. Thank you for reminding me to stay calm, believe in people after living near the in-laws, and scale back on the perfectionism. The breathing part is very important to remember as well to be productive in packing versus emotional and over whelmed. We are renting for possibly a year t...

Reality Versus What sounds nice

My hopes for the big move hours from here in a little over a week are not all realistic. Here they are... 1. My husband and I will pack everything that we need and not forget anything. (It would be lovely to arrive, unpack and feel instantly at home with everything that we need with us.) 2. We will ...

Re: Two updates that I couldn't make up!

WhyOhWhy, Thank you for your message, your time, consideration and supportive words. I really appreciate you helping me make it through the journey to get to this place. Dh is giving up on all of his relatives, even his twin brother, and I know what that feels like. It is freeing yet it is a loss of...

Good news!

I gained weight while living near my husband's relatives slowly enough that I didn't notice it for 5 years. Then, I noticed and lost the weight. However, five more years passed and the weight crept back on. My husband pointed it out to me and I took care of it again! Now, I am down 20 pounds and hav...

Re: Two updates that I couldn't make up!

Update: The nurse sister in law keeps reaching out to my husband asking for him to do things for her! I keep on deleting her text messages from his phone that are demands on his time. He doesn't have time to help her! We are leaving in a certain number of days and he is working up until the last day...

Re: Two updates that I couldn't make up!

The only thing that we are needing to buy for the apartment is a water filter pitcher, and a washing machine (we already have an extra dryer here to take with us.) We can gift the extra washer and dryer to one of the adult children who move out of the house and when we buy another house. Then, we ca...

Two updates that I couldn't make up!

Re: Dh found an out of state job 3 hours from here!

Thank you both! We are moving! We will be 3 hours away from them! We will rent for 2 years and then we will be able to the house here. Maybe the son who is getting married around then will buy the house after he graduates from college. Then, youngest adult son will move out on his own or live with u...
