Today I stepped on the scale...... it dosen't scare me so much anymore..... LOL !!!!
As of today I lost ~~~~~~~~~~~25 pounds !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am so happy and proud of myself !
Its not easy losing weight at my age, I think its my last kick at the weight loss can.Its not easy as you get older,I don't know why...
I don't want to live in a fat body anymore,I was too comfortable in my skin for too long. About a month and a half ago the good doctor put me on diabetic meds, I was so angry and disappointed at myself for letting it get this far .
I decided right then and there to make a life long commitment to myself,all my life I took care of everyone else, first my brothers when I lived at home, then I got married and took care of my husband and then my 2 beautiful children as they were growing up they are my heart, my father was ill for years and years before he died , even my job got more attention than I gave myself. I always put my needs last ...............I did this all my life
Were both retired now but not empty nesters, some of you know my MIL lives with us,she has alzheimers , most days she is calm and all is good but some days are hell.It takes a lot of energy and mental ability to deal with all that.( Trust me it makes me tired beyond words )
I have a really bad knee needing replacement that will happen in the next year hopefully, then I want a cruise to Europe when I have recovered enough to do some serious walking.
I want to do all that in a slimmer body ! I don't feel the need to weigh 100 pounds I need to be realistic about my goal,and my first 25 pounds to me is like a huge stepping stone towards my goal. One step... one day at a time looking after myself !!
