Kinda for you, probably more for me

So I have gotten many emails from followers of my blog who are concerned about me and asking to hear from me. I truly am sorry that I have fallen off the face of the earth. Also many have expressed concern. That was not unfounded at all! i have put back on 26 pounds from my low! I am coming back with all hopes that I can get back to gettin' as we say here in the south. I accept full responsibilty for my current set of circumstances. I was not mentally prepared for the craziness of law school and it was really truly gettting to me the first 2 to 3 weeks. and as in days of old, I sought my comfort in food. It is amazing that even though I was staying reasonably active and the food I sought comfort in was much healthier than my old eating habits, I am able to pack on the pounds pretty quickly! I was thinking about that on the way home the other day and I think I may have figured out what that is about. I think I just took off my weight too fast, and now that I am not really restricting my caloric intake so low, my body is like oh crap, lets get some fat back on here in case he does that again. So I am on a new mission. I am going to take those 26 pounds off AGAIN, and this time, rather than shooting for as much weight loss as possible each weigh in, I am going to shoot for 1 pound a week. I will get there by using my head at night, which is STILL my problem, and working out moderately, so that in real life, once I get the weight off, I can keep doing the same things that got it off, and my body won't have a freak out on me. What do ya'll think?

Thanks so much for all the emails. I would list ya'll individually but I am headed out the door for church, so I am once again rushed! Have a great sunday!
