A Fall off the "wagon" but trying again

Lost my husband 6 yrs ago and did not take care of myself as I should. I made the decision to take better care of myself Jan. 2009. I wanted to get in shape and gain more strength.

I started at 148 pounds Jan. 1st 2009 and got down to 115 pretty easily. Then started a new medication in fall 09 that caused me to STAY hungry. I gained back to 130 pounds. My doctor told me to be patient and not to over work my body so I tried to follow his advice and watched the scales gradually go ...

I started at 148 pounds Jan. 1st 2009 and got down to 115 pretty easily. Then started a new medication in fall 09 that caused me to STAY hungry. I gained back to 130 pounds. My doctor told me to be patient and not to over work my body so I tried to follow his advice and watched the scales gradually go up - Very Hard to Do. I have stopped the medication and now hope to get back to about where I was before.

I have joined my local community center (thanks to a senior discount) and started to really exercise again. I am now taking a Zumba, pilates, hip hop & yoga class plus walking 3 miles 4 days a week.

The anniversary of my husband's death is Feb. 21 so I am going to try to stay busy, exercise, and come back here more to stay motivated and upbeat. I am also trying to be more mindful of my stress at work.

Noticed your comments on the aromatherapy article. I don't know if you sell essential oils or not, but if you'd ever like samples, feel free to email me: avidiva55@gmail.com. We could at least talk about natural health! Hope this helps.

Renate Smith.

Thanks for posting to my blog last month! Sorry I didn't notice it until now...I didn't really know that people could comment on blogs, so I didin't even look until now.

I've been doing pretty well this week, so thanks for the encouragement.
