I guess that's what I have been! I am still here and hope to return to blogging really soon. Life has thrown me a curve ball and I have been trying to get my brain wrapped around the situation and get my life in some sort of control. The reason for my missing blogs is that on October 2nd I was diagnosed with diabetes. It isn't something that should have come as a shock to me as I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with Daniel, but it did. I am on medication. But this whole idea has thrown me for a curve. I have never really been a "good" eater. I didn't have a healthy diet growing up and have continued some of the same patterns. I have gotten better as I got older and had kids who needed nutritious meals, but I continued eating candy, cakes, and drinking a TON of soda. Not any more!

October 8th I joined Weight Watchers and since my September 25th doctor's appointment I have lost 9 pounds. I am praying that as I lose the weight I should have lost years ago, I will be able to get off the medication. I know that may never happen, but regardless, I need to lose the weight. So much of my time is spent planning meals, exercising, and homeschooling. I am starting to feel a bit in control, but I think it will take several more weeks. Please pray for me as I follow this path. Pray that I can teach my kids how to be healthier so that they aren't in the same boat I am in when they are my age!
