I don't know where to begin. It's been several months since I wrote a blog. This might be a little long since I feel I have to release some things. Get them off my chest! Things haven't changed since January. Actually I have been heading on a downward spiral for the last year and a half. It started when my brother died tragically and I had to take a early retirement. At first was using retirement for an excuse for gaining weight which was partially true. I am not burning up as many calories as when I worked. Then at the end of March of last year this corona virus reared it's ugly head. I will admit I was scared. I am a stress eater but I used that as an excuse to eat anything I wanted. Believe you me my choices were very BAD!! I have gained almost all my weight back.12 more lbs. and I will weigh what I was at my highest weight.(276 lbs.) Believe you me I am not proud or happy with that weight and my poor body is feeling it. It is an effort just to go up steps, walk, for even bend down. I ache so much now. I guess too much sugar is causing inflammation. I noticed when I go shopping it feels more comfortable leaning on the shopping cart that standing up straight! That was my AHA MOMENT!!! Wednesday May 5th started BLC. I am going to try my best to lose weight. That is all I CAN DO!! I don't think the weight will come off as rabidly as before because of too much yo-yo dieting, my age, and not burning up as many calories as when I worked but I will still give it my best shot. I refuse to give up!!
Now you will ask where did a spring a time of renewal come in. I was reading a article this morning that inspired me. "Spring is a time of renewal. Trees are budding, flowers blooming. Spring can also be a time for personal renewal, to reestablish goals for health and wellness." I just got back on track and this sounds like what I'm trying to do. So let this be a time of renewal for me. A time to reestablish my goals and once again to go marching on down the road to a healthier and happier self!
Welcome! Always know that we are all here for the same reason, to get healthy, believe me it is not easy, one day at a time, just give yourself little goals to reach and reward yourself when you reach it! 👍 35 days ago
