It's AUGUST!

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!
