Karen's New Style

This year has been full of frustration, adjustment and loss. But these are 'real life' and I need to make the new life style capable of handling tough reality. While everything was comfortable with my job of 25 years, and the child went away to college, I had 'control' of my life, and even though it seemed hard, sticking to an eating change was easy.

This year has been full of frustration, adjustment and loss. But these are 'real life' and I need to make the new life style capable of handling tough reality. While everything was comfortable with my job of 25 years, and the child went away to college, I had 'control' of my life, and even though it seemed hard, sticking to an eating change was easy.

When the job vaporized and people started dying at a horrible rate and I had the challenge of a new company, I had NO control. The morning breakfast from old life was set, satisfying and it worked. Now, there is nothing similar, and I struggle everyday with getting enough at breakfast to keep me going until lunch. I tried oatmeal in the morning, it was not enough. So the lunch I packed, which was great with the former breakfast, wasn't enough. So, by time I got home, I was ready to eat anything in sight. I've been working on it, but I have not solved it yet.

So, long story short, there is work to do. Nothing ever stays the same forever, so start working!

Thank you for commenting on my blog. I love butterflies. I have been raising them from eggs and releasing them for over five years.

LOL, Karen! I LOVE puns...and yes, maybe I'll become more "charming" as I collect them. Can't wait to get the next ten pounds off. Thanks for the giggle! emoticon
