Journey? More like a Forced March. Demoralized, deprived, tired and not enjoying any part of it.

Well, I certainly feel better when I eat healthy food and don't overeat!

Joy in the journey??

Sometimes. That's life.

Since I believe that this is the only life I will ever live, I love and enjoy each and every day I have. So, my journey is a one of loving my life and remembering all the people I know who are/were about my age who are not here today. My SIL died 12 years ago (she weighed about 450#) and she would have been 66 yesterday. Makes me sad that she wouldn't go to the doctor and do anything about her obesity. She said "All he will do is Bit#h to me about my weight, so why should I go?" I said "You need to have gastric bypass" but she was to afraid to do that since she might die in the surgery. So she died down in her basement when no one was home and she'd gotten an exercise bike for Christmas. Not a good idea.

not sure I would call this joy, lol. through all the ups and downs that I go through trying to lose this weight. think I am doing really good as far as food and trying to move as much as possible, but not losing. it is a really hard venture at age 64. I will try not to give up though because I need to be healthier. I already feel healthier because I can walk without getting out of breathe. some of my clothes fit now . I just walked around a 350 acre fairground looking at over 9000 in 2 days at the Syracuse, n.y. car show. I would have died 22 pounds ago. I survived and my legs weren't even very sore. just goes to show even a small lose makes a difference so I will keep trying for more.

keep on trucking

Oh Yes! I actually love to pre-plan my meals on the nutrition tracker!

As we "journey" towards health & fitness, here are a few synonyms for JOURNEY:

JOURNEY: adventure, campaign, course, drive, expedition, exploration, hike, itinerary, jaunt, migration, odyssey, outing, passage, crossing, pilgrimage, quest, route, sojourn, tour, travel, trek, trip, visit, wandering, progress...

Which one describes the path YOU are on??
