It was okay today. basically because he is unemployed I am out of luck getting any type of help. Sucks when men can just quit their jobs and not look after their responsibilities. We meet again on the 29th and will see if anything else comes up. I could go to court but in reality its just not worth it. I think I can finally start moving on now. He asked about a divorice I told him I wasn't stopping him but that I wasn't paying for it either. So hopefully soon he will do that. Then I can go out for a drink or two ;) Sad as it is I am glad its over.

Happy Wednesday :) 

I hope everyone is well! I have been down with the flu. That was no fun! Feeling human again today so that is good. Its also mediation day with my ex. Think happy thoughts and send prayers out for me please! I am so ready for all this to be over with and I can move on with my life.

Eating has been good. Only had 1 ginger ale yesterday to help with my tummy, other than that water.  I have had a bit of junk food, but mostly because I didn't have an option I was out of all the fruits and veggies. *Sigh* I can't wait till spring/summer and they are easier to keep. So we had a couple of meals where we had baked fries as a side dish.

Water has been great, and even though I have been sick I have been trying to walk at least 30 mintues each day, hoping tomorrow to do my weights again.

Will check in with everyones entries later, gotta run to the appointment.

Congrats Jenny, Allen and Ethan! on your new addition Mason!!!  Can't wait to hear tales of the two boys as they grow ;)


Morning Ladies,

I have been down with Spring Cleaning this week. Cleaned out the garage this morning and friends are taking a truck load to the dump and the 2nd hand store for me today ;) WHOOP!  Started my bedroom last night only didn't have the energy to complete the task and now its a disaster zone! OH MY> Gotta work on that today.

Water has been great this week! food I am on the fence it wasn't a great week but it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Its a day by day learning experience not to eat my way through stress. With the seperation not going well, and exh being a butt head to our son, I am pretty sure the mediation on Wednesday will not go well either :( 

I just don't understand why someone can treat their child this way. Makes me very angry. I am lucky that our son is 15 now and can vent his frustrations.


Happy Saturday

Morning Peeps!


I so can't wait till I get my new computer  Only 3 more weeks *happy dance* will be nice to be able to keep in touch. I get so frustrated my current computer, its so old and poor little thing needs to be put to rest. I can only have it on for a few minutes and then it dies. Needs a new fan, mother board and other components.

I am still working OT which will really help for getting the computer. Not to mention I need a new TV now to, DS TV died the other day so I gave him mine out of my room, but I miss it, I used to listen to the news and do my stepper in the morning, now I don't want to step lol. So hopefully can find a small flat screen as well. Its time I spoiled myself anyway :)

Until I am through with the mediation with the ex *what a journey that has been* I am focusing on just staying where I am, I would rather maintain than gain, and am learning to deal with things without food. What a change that is lol.

Have a great day. Will try to stop by a few diaries before my computer crashes

Hi peeps :) 

Time for my weekly check in.. Goodness I can't wait till I get my new computer :) Might be able to swing it earlier if I keep working Over time like I have been.

Last week was rough! along with ot I had a meeting with a lawyer regarding my seperation and pending divorice, anyway  we were talking and he was telling me a story about  a guy that was in the day before about how evil his ex was not letting him see his kid not taking child support but saying he wasn't paying. Poor guy I thought. He tells me I could have to pay spousal support since he is unemployed and I am.. he says funny same thing as yesterday i told he to take his wife for everything she is worth. He goes on the computer to tell me how much I will owe if the courts decide to do that.. Then he looks at his computer and slams it down and tells me to get out of his office my husband was in there yesterday.

WTF how the hell does this happen! its a legal clinic where you go for mediation and somehow my ex ended up with an appointment with my lawyer. Now I have to wait till late feb to get in with someone else. Not only that.. I opened my eyes in shock and realized that the story he was telling me was a bunch of lies my ex was telling him about me...  The only good thing that came out of it, is I wont be shocked at mediation, since his lawyer just basically told me they are going to try to take me for everything I am worth. Which is nothing. I can't believe he can spend almost 2 years not paying me 1 cent to help out and hardly seeing our son who is 15, and I could have to support his sorry lazy A$$. He is apparently not working due to injuries from a car accident when were still married. BULLSH*T He did this when we seperated before quit his job so he wouldn't have to pay anything.

You know an abuser can just keep on doing long after the relationship is over. As I said to a GF on friday, I am done trying to negotiate and be nice for my sons sake. Life is all about me now if you don't like it buggar off.!

Anyway thanks for letting me vent sometimes you just need to do that somewhere where you feel safe :) Weight wise I am doing fine just maintaining and with all this stress I am okay with that for the next month. I have been working hard to get all my water in and do 30 minutes of exercise each day as well.


Have a great day ladies!

shadetree on 01/24/2011:
Wow! How does that happen???? But at least you know what path the ex and his lawyer are taking....gives you a chance to get prepared. Maintaining through all the stress is a good thing - especially when you are working a lot of overtime. Just keep doing the best you can!

moogy on 01/24/2011:
You know you could write a soap opera story line about that and no one would believe you. Real life - it is always more incredible than anything the writers could come up with. I am so sorry you are having to deal with all this bull.:)

chidogs on 01/25/2011:
Not a very good lawyer, talking about other clients with a client, huh. Maybe you are better off without him. Good luck, and you are for-armed now.

Happy Monday Everyone :) 

******** UPDATE *******

I always laugh at my ex there is nothing else to do, he is not exactly the smartest tool in the shed these days. And that was the best 180 lbs I have ever lost! We never should have been married. Those who have been on her forever know that one right ladies. Anyway its frustrating, and annoying because he is being a butt head to curtis and thats completely not fare :( 

I am annoyed at the computer but am looking forward to picking out a new cheap on in March *grin* I might get teh computer as well as getting a lap top for just me with all the overtime I am working :) I love it when I get OT it only lasts a couple of months and I try for 16 hours a week doesn't sound like much but those cheques are nice :) 

Maria  computers come with a highspeed hook up now if you want dial up you have to ask for that to be installed.

Thanks for the comments all! I will update when I can, but minimum once a week till I get my new computer :) Which isn't that far away actually!


Sorry for the quietness :( My computer is acting up again, I can only have it on a few minutes a day can't wait till March when I get my new one. Not only that I Have had some drama with my ex....;. *Grrrr* Off to work will stop in later

I am sooo glad its friday! Even though I am working some OT tomorrow but its always easier to work OT I find since I can leave when I want lol.

Plans for the weekend are not much OT have dinner with a GF and clean the house some more oh and resetting my BLC I want to do the whole weigh in thing lol :) SO that will be a priority when I am home from work tomorrow.

This year is going ok so far. Learning to move on isn't the easiest thing but it is the best thing I can do for myself and my son. Looks like financially we will be okay I am expecting some back pay to come through closer to the summer. *whoop* and I am buying a new computer in March. *WHOOP* my current one crashes and the fan is not working so I have to continuously shut it down so I don't fry the mother board. very Frustrating to say the least.

Umm Opps I rumbled on. .....
