lettygaylor's Journal, 11 March 2016

So I haven't weighed in for a while. I have been SUPER busy. My husband works in the oil field and had to take a pay cut, thankfully he still has a job, many have been laid off. It hasn't gotten to the point where I have had to look for another job, but I have taken on more classes at the gym. I now teach 8 classes, five are general group fitness and three Zumba classes. I also try to cover any of the other instructor's classes when they are sick or just can't make it, it helps that I have two certifications. And it seems like the past few weeks a lot of the other instructors have been a bit under the weather or going out of town. So I have been working my butt off. The only problem is that I haven't been very healthy with my eating. I pretty much been eating whatever. It's time to get back on track. It's time to get myself back into where I would like to be with my weight range. That would be between 150-155. So I got a bit of work to do, but after losing 130 pounds I'm pretty sure I can handle this! Y'all have a great day and don't let setbacks discourage you. Like the Japanese proverb says, "Fall down seven times get up eight." It's time to get up.
163.4 lb Lost so far: 116.6 lb.    Still to go: 8.4 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Sorry to hear about your husband's job situation .... we all smile at the gas pumps now a days, but oil prices probably effects more people than any of us can imagine. Stress & weight loss are not always friends.

Thanks everyone! We are just thankful that he still has a job. Many have been laid off. And we have been through tough times before. I always save money to get us through these lean times. The difference is in the past I have never worked. During those times, I was a stay at home mom but now that I am a fitness instructor I am able to contribute to our finances and that makes me feel so much better.
