Gypsy's Journal

I have spent the last three years of my life in a constant battle with my weight. I have "ping-ponged" back and forth, losing four or five pounds here, and then subsequently gaining 10-15 there. I have spent a lot of time trying to convince myself that I wasn't "THAT" over weight and a lot of time feeling really depressed that I was "THAT" overweight. I have jeans in my closet that can testify to my slow gain. I can pull out a size 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16 pair. This is no joke. I could ...
I have spent the last three years of my life in a constant battle with my weight. I have "ping-ponged" back and forth, losing four or five pounds here, and then subsequently gaining 10-15 there. I have spent a lot of time trying to convince myself that I wasn't "THAT" over weight and a lot of time feeling really depressed that I was "THAT" overweight. I have jeans in my closet that can testify to my slow gain. I can pull out a size 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16 pair. This is no joke. I could make a weight gain timeline with my jeans!!! LOL

I finally made it to the point where not only was I fed up with being overweight, but I was tired of moping and whining about it to. Time to get down to business. I'm tired of feeling sluggish and self-conscious. I'm tired of not being able to keep up with my two year old daughter and my husband. And I'm tired of worrying about my overall health.

This is more than just weight loss for me. I am currently 6o pounds overweight and considered to be obese. I am at a high risk for diabetes (runs in both sides of my family), not to mention the pluthera of other health problems that come along with being overweight and eating all the wrong foods. I am mentally stressed and depressed over my health. I don't sleep well from lack of activity. So this is a journey for me. It is a long hard path towards overall health and well being. But I can walk it! I can trudge it! And if I have to, I will crawl it. One way or another, I will get this done.

Hi honey,

What a nice surprise! I am embarrassed to say that I am in a lousy place...again, or still. Seems like I am just a bummer anytime you are kind enough to ask. I am waiting for biopsy results, so I am on pins and needles. I am also struggling to stay patient with how slow this weight loss goes. Thank you for thinking of me Gypsy, and thank you for letting me know.

How are things in your world?
