Early last year, I wrote about how very slowly time was dragging and how I wondered if things would go differently once the kids came back home. Finally, this week, I heard myself saying, "I can't believe it is nearly October already!"
It took nearly two years to feel like time was moving normally again, but this is one area where my perspective is pretty normalized again. Maybe not "normal" in that, if anything, time feels like it is speedy by too quickly now, but this is so much better than the snail crawl I felt locked in for so very long!
For those following my VERY SLOW and incredibly hard fought weight loss efforts, I am now down a total of 19 pounds from my very highest post-stroke weight, still about 20 pounds to go to get back to the weight I had fought my way down to prior to the strokes, the weight I was the day I first entered the hospital. Of course, I lost another 15-20 during my nearly two months there, then was unhealthfully too thin, but I would very much like to get back where I started almost two years ago! I am back into size large clothes again, but not mediums for a while yet! It has been a wild ride, fitting (swimming) in everything from extra smalls to (squeezing) into extra larges, all within about a year and a half! Glad that, right now, the scale seems to be concistantly crawing in the right direction!
