2010 Big Detour in my weight loss journey
Saturday, October 16, 2010
I am beginning again in my weight loss journey. 2010 has been a rotten year for my. First I lost my mother to lung cancer in March, this put me in a deep depression and I did not even care what I ate or if I lost a pound or not. I really miss my mother. I was starting to feel a little better by the end of June so I started to care and try to lose again. Then Whamo!! My younger sister went in to have a triple bypass and was diagnosed with lung cancer too!
She started chemotherapy and radiation treatments last week. Just praying she beats this ugly vicious disease.
I have decided to try again and hopefully succeed in losing all this excess weight. I quit smoking over 5 years ago cold turkey, so why the heck can't I lose this weight. I must and I will succeed if I want to live a long and healthy life.
I know that i have to change my entire life style, eat healthy, and exercise. I have been very lucky with my health so far. Other than being over weight, I do not have any other physical ailments. but, Diabetes does run in my family and my hubby has it. I do not have it, blood pressure is good and I feel good. I know that having this excess weight is like playing Russian roulette with my health. It is just a matter of time and if I do not take off this weight one of those bullets(hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, etc) is headed my way.
We are getting closer to 2011 and this awful year will be gone. I will succeed and have this weight of in 2011! Slowly but surely I will succeed. I must!
