I am alive and well... well, sort of!

Anyway, This move has been overwhelming. We are downsizing... from a 4 bedroom home to a attic in my In-law's home. I am thrilled to be back in Philly where we grew up, met, and fell in love. We can watch our nephews grow up and get back strongly on our feet, travel more and continue my quest to get healthy and maybe a little bit Fit.

Road trips... are not great for good food choices. I think I may have eaten more calories in 2 days than in all the full weeks since my surgery. But today is my first full day in the Mainline... and I have eaten good and even though I feel weak and worn out got a good workout with unloading the truck and walking. Plus all that driving burns loads of calories too, but since my scale isn't unpacked, I have no idea where I am with that.

I look forward to getting back into my workout schedule... I have to decide on a new gym and find my groove.... Philly Soul Style. I am going to my first Support Group at the University of Pennsylvania on the 27th. A friend of mine from high school is considering having a band installed so I told her I 'd love to join her for the support group. I need to find a new surgeon and UoP is top notch for Bariatrics.

When I look at all this stuff around me, I have a fear that I didn't let go of enough, I wanted to simplify my life and I still have a ton of crap. I think once I decorate and get things in their bookshelves, etc... I may take some more to Goodwill, I am determined to live more simply. I may also give my Mom more things to decorate her new apt.

I just wanted to check in with you all. I will post more later, when I get my mind back... It's out to lunch these days.


  1. so glad you made it safely! Hope you get settled soon and things get back to calm.

  2. Goodness a move can be so disruptive!! You'll get everything sorted! We ladies always do! Glad to know you've made it though!

  3. Yeah for paragraphs! I am glad you made the move safe. You will start to feel better as you settle in and purge some more junk.

  4. yay! so glad you arrived safely... can't wait to visit soon :) Make sure you join a gym that will allow you to bring a guest with you- we can get a workout in when I visit. I am so proud of you for all that you have been able to do lateley and your commitment to working out has been awesome. You Rock!

  5. Glad to hear you mde it up there safely. Don't worry about road trip calories...they will be more than offset by moving!!! :)

  6. So glad you had a safe trip! I love Philly...I'll have to come visit one day.
