The Holiday Season

The Holiday Season is upon us. We are all busy making sure we have presents for everyone, ingredients for baking and the big Christmas dinner and desserts. And there just isn’t time for much else. But I have most everything I need so I thought I take a timeout and give everyone an update.

On my last update I told you I was working on my story of weight loss. I set that aside for the time being because I wanted to finish working on this story “Where Can My Baby Be?” That I started shortly after my nephew’s death. I made him a character in the story because I know writing helps me through my grief. There were times I had to set the story aside because it hurt too much to keep going, but then there are times when I am doing okay and I can write more on the story. So that is my main goal now. I would like to publish the story but someone said that if I did I would be making money off someone’s death.

I don’t believe that and that is not what I am trying to do. So I don’t know if I’ll publish this story or not.

Thankfully I’m not just relying on this story to get published. I have a much larger novel I have to go through and edit and that will be in my goal for next year.

Enough of this update from my side. What are you working on? Are you ready for Christmas? Or do you celebrate a different holiday? Whatever holiday you celebrate I hope it’s a good one filled with wonderful memories.

Ill see you in the New Year!!

My Weight Loss Journey

The project I have chose to work on is the one about my weight loss journey, This will will be lengthy as I have a long way to go in to reaching my goal weight. I am at 285 pounds now and am looking to get to my goal weight of 130.

I am going to a weight loss clinic to help me manage my weight but when I am home it is about eating the right portions (I also eat gluten free and dairy free. This wasn’t always the case when I first started the program. You can see my videos at Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/jansweightloss/

There is eating the right portions and then there is excercise. For exercise I am doing resistance training. I’m working on 10 minutes a day for 7 days to start but will be increasing the time when I feel reading. I am also taking notes as I see fit. If you have any questions or suggestions please don’t hesitate to contact me at jisoucie@hotmail.com.
