I am just now starting on this blog, but I started this journey a couple weeks ago. It was a very weird day. It started with me talking with my mom about changing careers, and whether I should. We agreed that I should definitely try, and I was really happy to have her support.
Then, my cat Leo was very ill. He first got sick April 1, and I took him to the vet. The vet said it was his liver, though he couldn’t pinpoint exactly what it was because he didn’t have the equipment at his office. The pandemic made it impossible for me to find a place where I could get further testing done. I took my cat home, gave him medicine for the next couple weeks, and he seemed to be getting better. But two weeks ago, after that conversation with my mom, he took a turn for the worse. I went from this extreme high to this heart-crushing low.
I knew I had to put him down, and it was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever made. I had him for 16 years (he was 17), and I barely remember life without him. It’s been so quiet and sad.
His death really triggered a “change your life” attitude in me. That day I started dieting. It really helped that I wasn’t hungry anyway. The next day I started exercising. In my last post, I said I’ve lost 20 pounds. Well, that wasn’t over two weeks. I actually started at least dieting in February, then the pandemic hit, and I just couldn’t handle not eating. I eat when I’m stressed. So, I’m combining my weight loss from then and now. I’ve probably lost 8 pounds in the last two weeks.
Anyway, that’s how this all began. Not really a fun story, but there it is. This blog is a little short, but I am just trying to work on writing three entries today to fill out my webpage.
Until next time.
