So prays for my husband this week as he will be driving to Kansas City for some job interviews. I completely purged my house of unwanted and some unneeded things. (Let’s face it we all have things we don’t “need” that pertain to hobbies and such.) we had a moving sale last weekend and made 1,500 so that will help a lot with moving expenses. Also after much consideration the church has decided to pay my husband for the two weeks vacation he was contracted to get and for our moving expenses as they broke their end of the contract by not being able to continue to afford to pay him. So that’s all helpful good news as well. My husband however is still very concerned about a job and how he will be able to do any heavy lifting at the moment as he has a fractured bone in his foot that is still healing. I haven’t stepped on the scale in a week but that is in my plans somewhere in the next few days. I’m not worried as I still have been eating well and expect to see it having maintained. I’m also very proud of my husband who has also been losing weight by choosing smaller portions and he stopped drinking soda. He is down 16 lbs with a 4 lb loss every week so far. He is currently at 270! This is an amazing feat for him as he has said he would try to lose weight many times but never stuck to it beyond a week maybe two. So lots of good news in our lives and lots of change. But to me God is in control and I’m here to enjoy the adventure!

So apparently my nerves have got the better of me right now. I ate breakfast and lunch but wasn’t at all hungry for supper. I already knew we were possibly moving, but what was a possibility yesterday morning turned out to be a reality yesterday afternoon. What I suspected wouldn’t happen until the beginning of December has been bumped all the way to the beginning of October. It’s had me anxious since I had an inkling life could be drastically changing three weeks ago. Now it’s nothing too crazy because we would just be going back to where we had spent our two years prior to moving here. But I also feel like I’m the only one excited. My husband was kind of dragging his feet and my teenage son is very upset about it. I think my son will be fine after the transition but he really struggles with change. He hasn’t had any friends in 16 months that we’ve lived here and he always says he wants to go back. Once we told him we were he was in tears about the whole situation. My husband loves this church dearly in this sad that he feels like he is going to have to leave so much unfinished. But the thing is that so many families have moved due to job changes like going into the military that the income just isn’t there to pay what we need to support our family. Plus he still has to finish school and he only has one year left before he will receive his masters degree. And we had spoke up on deciding he would start school that if he started it He would see it though to the end. He would love to be able to do it bi-vocationally, but honestly there’s not enough time for full-time school, part-time pastor, full-time employee, and have any time for your family. So wish me luck in packing to move in three weeks because we already had plans to leave for a week on September 23 and be gone before this all ever was decided. Plus since my boss is still short handed at work I have been working 30 hours or a little more every week.

26 August 2018

It’s always so nice to hop back on here and see the faithful ones of us still trying to eat healthy for life regardless of the rollercoaster it seems to be. The last year of my life has been busier than any season before. Since November 4th of last year I have typically worked 14 hours a week while living life and homeschooling. I waitress and cook and love every moment. I also am always the one to pick up any hours that someone can’t be there. Within saying that the past month has been crazy while I have been working 30 hours and trying to keep up on life at home. Praying for my boss to find a good person to replace the one we lost which honestly needed to go anyhow. I would like to have those hours back to start homeschool September 1st. We were slow being able to afford purchasing materials this year as we spent 2 weeks in May gone as our grandmother passed, 2 week vacation at my mothers in July (this honesty didn’t cost anymore than being at home as we just paid for groceries) and spending much of our summer paying to support other people like my SIL and her children. That is not a complaint about my nieces but part of me feels like his sister just used us to get back with her crappy boyfriend.... but that is life.
Now we are looking at moving back to NW Missouri after being here in Arkansas the past 16 months. I would sure appreciate prayer in us doing as God would want us to in His time. All the doors have been opening there and we are just waiting on a job for my husband to be set in stone for sure. He is currently waiting for his old boss to be given the go ahead to hire the extra people they need. I would love for my husband to have this job back alongside a part time ministry job that will pay enough between the two we can afford life. He has had one interview and has just put in a couple more applications. The church where he is pastoring has slowly decreased as many young men and their families have went into the military and moved on. On top of the fact what they thought they had financially for a budget wasn’t as much as they did have at all. So honestly they can only afford to pay him for a few more months without beginning to go into the negative. While we love the people here i know that we have all brought change and growth to each other’s lives and I’m okay with moving on.

I had my first period since having Jack. That was a long 27 months lol! That was wrecking havoc on my emotions and eating since about May. I feel so much better now and have been eating better for the past week. Honestly working around food had not made life any easier as well. But thankfully I seemed to have done fairly well. But now I’m on my mission to get back to 115 before the inevitable getting pregnant happens again. I honestly think it will happen before the end of this year. I would rather start on the lower end so I can end at less. I might know a thing or two about this stuff as many times as I have been through it. Well I hope to check in here more frequently now. I honestly could not believe I had not been on here since right before I started working last year!

I hope you all are doing well and find marvelous gains in your journey to weight loss and healthy living!
