Getting back to normal

I think things are getting back to normal now.  My stepdaughters went back home so things are slowing down a bit, its so quiet without them, i miss having them here.  Then I slipped and messed something up in my back, does not help for exercising but is slowly feeling much better.

I gained the first weigh-in but lost this weigh-in, only a 1 lb loss and i would like to have lost alot more then that but at least i'm going in the right direction.  The one thing I find hard is making a schedule for exercising and for a menu and actually being able to stick to it without something coming up and me going back to my old self and letting everything else take first priority.  

I am so used to doing everything that when I finally need to do something for me and let everyone take care of themselves(which I know they can do, its just the kind of person I am is to help) I have a hard time changing. They have all told me this, but I have to be the one that changes and listens to them and sticks to it. Maybe this week I need to start to make that happen.
