I should have known.
As recently as Veteran's Day, I was reminded that no mountain is climbed overnight, but with support and some creative thinking, anything really is possible. And 'nearly impossible' doesn't mean completely impossible.
With some creative thinking and flexibility from good friends and social workers, we were able to come up with a plan that might just get this thing rolling and done by December.
Very little in life can be accomplished without an amazing support crew, and I couldn't be more grateful for mine. SuperMom continues to inspire me with the way she fights her family, and encourages me never to give up. She reminds me that the kids are out there, somewhere, counting on us, so it's worth every effort we can make. That fact can get clouded when the mountainous 'to-do' list seems overwhelming. One of my fellow StrongSisters who has already 'been there done that' lined up with some creative solutions and helped me stay objective about the 'to do' list.
And My Sailor has been very supportive as well. This hasn't been easy on him either, and I'm sure he's feeling the pressure as well. He has a great support crew too. His Chief has armed him with the support he needs to get his arsenal of weight loss on.
So we've got the plan. We've got the help. We've got the support. Now all we need to do is stick to it!
