I have had a lot going on lately and as a result I have been slacking! I have been caught up in work and doctor visits. As it turns out, I'm obese but in good health! I have high levels of good cholesterol, my iron is good, my white blood cells are great, I'm not a diabetic and I don't have a thyroid problem. Which is all good news, however it's not good being the healthy fat girl! I know that I am the only one stopping me, my brain has way to much control over my body! I am working hard at a job where I am unappreciated, which I know is normal! I'm sure EVERYONE feels that way! I wish I had the money for a gym membership... or a husband who would workout with me... or even let me know how proud he is of me for working out and losing weigh. But he doesn't... instead he tells me I'm perfect the way I am. And how great it is that I'm healthy and we can rule out any health problems as to why I'm this weigh. I know why I'm this weight... it's because I lack the tools to lose the weight. A few yeas ago I was doing great, dropping pounds left and right. I had people in my life to workout with. I didn't work outside my home, so working out and being a house wife was all I had to worry about. Then my husband and I hit a tough time and I went back to work. I kept at it for about 6 months, even dragging some of my co-workers to the track for workouts. then my schedule changed and workouts became harder to get in. Now I was working full time and was still doing all the housework. If I wanted to workout I had to get up at 4am, work an 8hr shift, come home to dishes, dinner and laundry! It was easier to give up the workouts! So I did... I figured I can still bike to work, that didn't pan out so well! Cold weather is one thing but when you can't keep a tire from going flat it's another issue! So my bike has sat for almost a year, unused! I sold my treadmill to make space for my home gym, which is still in the box a year later... I don't even run anymore! I feel like a complete waist of space sometimes. While in the background I have my husband telling me I'm perfect the way I am and my sister saying as long as your healthy, your weight shouldn't matter! ugg! so any advise you want to offer, I'm willing to accept. Especially if you have been where I am now, it would be great to hear how you overcame it!
