Long awaited (and necessary) update

Well, I haven't been the best at updating my blog. It's been something like 9 months since I've written and I'm sorry I haven't proven myself reliable. I know the disappointment when a person stops writing on their blog and yet I did the exact same thing.

There have been so many changes for us since February. Jeff and I moved to Bethel, Alaska. If you want to know more about that, you can see our family website . In the meantime, we've had to deal with so many different things than Oregon and it's taken alot of getting used to.

In regards to health; sigh, I hate to admit this, but I have gained back every single pound that I lost, plus 1. I am now unhappily settled at 316 pounds and my highest weight EVER. Over the last 9 or so months, I've had to deal with depression which is very new and very hard for me. I've got a better grasp on it now, so fingers-crossed, I've gotta change.

At my job, starting next Monday, we're starting a fitness challenge, which I'm excited to do. We got together a group of 5 people and have gone over the ground rules. It starts on the 14th and ends on the 3rd of June, but I'm really excited. 4 of 5 in our group work at the same place I do, so I feel like we might get more support that way.

I hope I didn't worry anyone, what with pretty much disappearing until now. Thanks for the support you gave me in the past and I hope we're all on the path to health and fitness!
