yay, I can see my ankles again!
I only lost one more pound of water weight but that's okay.
I can move, and walk again without the water weight pressing on the tops of my feet.
I started working out with the SPARKPEOPLE CARDIO DVD I won on the bonus spin.
I chose the simple routine - indoor walking exercises.
I ONLY LASTED TEN MINUTES... and MOST of that was the WARM-UP.
I'm going to stick with it every day, and eventually work with it several times a day.
MY BIG PROBLEM since joining SP
has been my lack of commitment and consistency.
Until I keep my determination every day, I won't progress,
and I'll keep losing and gaining that SAME 30 POUNDS.
I do learn from my mistakes.
THIRD TIME is a charm - so I'm now CHARMED. hah hah YAY

My water retention is diminishing,
and the seven pound weight loss is just water weight,
but I'm encouraged by the lower number on the scale.
Due to medication complications I can't drink cranberry juice,
or take over-the-counter diuretics, or supplements,
or drink green tea.
I've been drinking a LOT of water, cutting out sodium,
using less salt, and getting a lot more exercise.
This is paying off and I'm going to continue this plan.
Hopefully I'll be able to see my real ankles by July 10,
which is when I will weigh again.

On June 20 I finally got the nerve to weigh..
. the number is . . .280
A binge a day for 3 months
has meant a 30 pound weight gain for me,
and most of my T-shirts are getting too snug, and my slacks are uncomfortably tight.
I will NOT be buying larger clothes.
I'm not sitting here all enthused about GETTING STARTED,
or STARTING OVER....
I just know I have to get control of myself and be an adult
and do what I can each day to improve my health.
Depression, medications, body aches are just excuses.
The first thing I did to help myself was to start drinking extra water
and stop whining and making excuses.
Last month I cut my own hair the way I wanted,
and I really like it.
This week I'm tossing out the clutter in my house
and facing the challenges I've been avoiding.
I'm grateful for all my SP friends who have kept supporting me
even when I was non-responsive.
I'm just going to get out of this hole, and stop setting unachievable goals.
No more planning a marathon,
no more deadlines for a big weight loss.
I'm just going get some exercise every day. . . and have some faith in myself.

My sister takes terrific photos when she walks.
Here's one she took yesterday.
