It is time to catch up, set goals and re-kindle my weight loss. I have really been off and on for the last several months and have been struggling with the same few pounds. I'm just TIRED of feeling bad. I have my 4th wedding anniversary coming up this week. On my honeymoon, my sweet husband had to help me get up the mountain. I want to be able to do this by myself. I don't want him to have to push me up the mountain. It was totally worth it, but it was totally not just me. Although I have a ways to go (over 50 pounds), but I know that I can do it. I just have to break it down in small steps. In the past few months I have lost a childhood friend, lost a radio DJ that I have been listening to for so many years. I was diagnosed with a slight case of sleep apnea and the first thing my neurologist says to me is "have you considered weight loss surgery?" Um, no, I haven't. I was stunned. My weight loss is more important than ever. It is not just that I need to be healthier, I need to take back control of my BODY and my HEALTH!
What am I going to do to help myself move in the right direction? I'm trying to plan my meals and make sure that I am getting the important stuff for my body. I need to eat right and workout. I know that I feel better when I'm working out. I have purchased a dry erase calendar to help me be able to see what I am doing and have done. It is a visual thing that helps me be more aware of what I am doing. I have also started trying to journal again. This will help me get what ever feelings and emotions out so I am not bottling things up. I think these will all be beneficial for me. DH and I have started taking my measurements as well. This is a process and I know I can do it. I just have to be patient and get moving in the right direction. I should really get moving to plan my meals for the week!
