I feel a change





Today I'm having one of those days. It's a good day and I'm happy, but I feel change in the air, it's brewing and it makes me feel a bit uneasy.



Here's what's happening:






  • My baby is graduating from the 8th grade in just a couple of weeks. That means we will have 3 in high school in the fall, 2 juniors and one freshman.



  • My step daughter will start driving next month! She turns 16! It's time to get a car for her too!



  • I'm starting a new business venture, something like I've never done before. I'm excited, I feel passionate about the products I'll be selling and I think it's a really great opportunity for me, but a little out of my comfort zone.



  • As far as my weigth loss goes, I feel like I am on the cusp, I literally am on the cusp, the cusp of the 100's I'm close to onederland and it's invigorating and scary all at once. It makes me feel like it's time to kick it up a notch. I feel like my body is trying to tell me something, like....excuse me, how about a little exercise today?



  • I feel pretty good about my progress, I feel pretty good about things in general. Next month rehearsals begin for the Variety Show I'm in each summer. I would really like to lose 10 pounds before the show, in late July. I don't know if that's feasible, since I'm a slow loser, but I really would like for that to happen. (send vibes now please!)



  • I don't know how else to put it, just that I feel uneasy, maybe a little anxious, a little excited all rolled up in one.



Things are changing....




Big Hugs,

I feel uneasy when too much seems to be changing at once too. But it's what makes life worth living, right? I think 10 lbs by July is totally doable...especially if you listen to that little voice about the exercise. I've been shoving a pillow over that little voice for almost a month now. I should let it speak more often.

I have a seat saved for you in Onederland. C'mon over. :-)

Ms. M said...

Wow! Lots going on in your world. Change is always a bit nerve-racking... even when its good changes. :)

Melissa Wolf said...

You can do it! Maybe say "5 lbs by July" to make it seem easier and then keep going and shoot for 10? Picture yourself in "onederland" up on that stage :-) By the way, I'd love to have more readers for my brand new blog but need folks to send me their email address to sign up, since I'm keeping it non-public right now for online privacy. I do need and want weight loss/WLS blogger buddies for mutual encouragement though, so email me at heymelissawolf@gmail.com and I'll add you to my "permitted readers" list. Thanks!!

Change is always hard, but it always works out! You can lose the weight...wish we could exercise together!
Business venture? What will be you selling? I know you'll be great at whatever it is. Need me to design a new logo and blog for you? I've been seeing the CUTEST sentsy blogs everywhere.
Love you my little TessieRose! XOXOXOXOX

Change can give us all the willies, but change can be good too. Take it all one day (or even one minute) at a time..

You'll be in Onderland before you know it!!

Change is crazy, but many times it is really, really good! :)

I'm so excited for all the wonderful things that are happening in your life right now! Although some of them may be a little scary, they will happen over time so try not to be too overwelmed.

This is soooo exciting.. its very healthy to move out of your comfort zone.. you are going to be Onederland before you know it!!! Enjoy the change..

Oddly - I feel that change is a comin' as well -- how interesting. It's always scary and even more so when there are a lot of things happening at once. I know it'll end up great though and that you'll absolutely be able to get rid of those 10lbs by the show!!!

Enjoy every little bit of this change darlin...and onederland is a stone's throw away.

Shrinking Mommy said...

Hang in there. The changes at this point are so unsettling....but they tell me they will pass.

Amanda said...

I started a new business adventure too! What will you be selling?

Change can always be daunting but in the end we always survive it!

So damn close to onederland. Both of us!
