I feel great! I'm eating better than I ever have. I am never hungry and never full. I'm eating on a plan that my surgeon and nutritionist gave me. I'm wearing clothes in sizes I never thought I'd see again. I am free from compulsive eating and cravings.

My energy level has gone through the roof, and I am able to do things I haven't done in years. Mark left on Friday, and I feel peaceful, relaxed and energized. I'm cleaning the house in preparation for showing it in order to sell it. I worked for hours at a time, non-stop, this weekend. I used to have to break down my cleaning into 15 minute intervals and then rest for 30 minutes because my back and knees would be killing me. I used to have to ask the kids to help pick things up off of the floor because I couldn't bend. Not this weekend! I feel invincible!

Oh my God, you can't even imagine. All the common rooms in my house are now decluttered, dusted and vacuumed, and so is my bedroom. I think there are about 20 garbage bags of crap outside, In the past three days I cleaned my kitchen, living room, dining room, computer room, 2 bathrooms, laundry room and my bedroom. I have done mountains of laundry, which is all folded and put away. All I have left are the kids' rooms, which I intend to tackle this week. My goal is to have the entire house cleaned and ready to show by next weekend. Now, the repairs still need to be done, but at least I won't be mortified to have someone walk through my house.

As for keeping it this way, the kids are all on board. They have each been assigned a room to KEEP clean. And I've apparently turned into a witch with a capital B. They tell me I'm changing. I tell them I am done being a doormat and their personal slave.

On top of doing all this cleaning, I have also found time to finish writing my testimony of victory, which I hope to give at retreats, recovery meetings, and anywhere else the Lord leads!

Jas: You sound terrific. Maybe the weight problem has been due to stress related eating all along- understandable. So besides your weight loss, you also dropped a 200# (or however much your husband weighed) big ole' lump.

Glad to hear you've got the motivation to do what you need to do, and are looking forward.

Wow Jas, that is a lot of cleaning! If motivation was like currency, I'd be asking you for a loan! Congratulations on your new life, you sound terrific.
