hidden in this body

This is my first Pour Your Heart Out. I've been a fan for a while but never linked up. Many of the blogs that I follow are religious in their participation , so I figured I'd give it a try too!  You can too, just visit Shell at things i can't say and link up.

I need to shed some pounds, I've gotten heavy and out of shape.

I've packed on a lot of pounds the past five years since the kids died.

Mourning and grief can be such an isolating thing and I did isolate myself. 

Time stopped and there was little else but sit and think and sit and cry; and eat apparently! 

Now  I need to shed and I don't seem to have the motivation to do it.

I need to get my mojo back.
It's alluding me!

Where did my mojo go?

One thing I know I hate that I'll have to do this alone.

I'd love if my husband would do it with me but he's not into this kind of thing.

I think having someone to do it with- a buddy would be fun, even helpful, but my friends well.... they're all in pretty good shape.

Darn, I want my mojo back.

I wish I knew where my mojo went.

 I know!

It's hidden in this body I no longer like!


  1. I hope you find it! You can do it!!!

  2. I wish I was where you were so I could give you a hug and help you hunt down your mojo, Jen.

    How about finding a kindred spirit online to share support? is an interesting link up. I'm sure there are other sites, too.

  3. Heidi,
    Thanks, How nice of you to offer a hug and that link, I'm feeling the good feelings of support all ready! Will check it out.

  4. Jen - you can partner diet with me :) I'm still working on it. Someday I hope to get my mojo back too! Kristen @

  5. That sounds great to me Kristen, I'm in if you're up for it!

  6. I hope you find your mojo. And keep looking for a partner - it really does make the dieting & exercise easier (and sometimes more fun).

  7. i can relate to so much of this post. SO MUCH. while i haven't ever lost a child, and i'm SO SORRY for you, stress is the cause of my issues.
    too bad you don't live closer, we could get each other motivated!! hang in there xoxo

  8. Roxanne,
    The perfect partner, she's out there, I know it!

  9. Oh Melissa,

    Thanks- Its hard to believe they've been gone five years. It seems like yesterday sometimes. And there you are dealing with a new loss yourself, how terribly sad for you.

    Yup stress hormones, I know them well!
    I was like a deer in the headlights for years, really!

    Now I'd like to tackle the evidence that the stress and all the lack of activity has produced and get in some kind of shape again.

    Maybe I'll even write about it on this blog.

  10. You go Jen!!!!!!!

    The hardest is starting...and you've done that now ;o)


I'm always interested in what you have to say...
