On the way to the finish line!
Saturday, January 17, 2009
Well...something happened on the way to the finish line that I was envisioning last Septenber!! I was going great guns...then the BIG MOVE started...in October I sold my house...then I had to pare down 33 years of stuff!! It was very difficult...I was blessed to have so much help...my sister, my friends...my kids when they could find enough minutes iu their super busy lives...but..the big but!!! I didn't go to the pool to work out cause I had to take help when I could get it...me being me would never say...can we wait till I can get to the pool...no...then I would have to take responsibility for my exercise...of course I couldn't just feed them salad and chicken...made sandwiches...etc...so...no...t
hen I would have had to taken responsibility for my food..
I moved into my lovely new condo on Dec. 23...it is great ...still looks a bit like a motel cause it is not all decorated or has curtains up yet...but I have to walk a lot further here than I did at home to get to my car...this is where it gets interesting....followed my dtr out of the other day...she asked me why I was huffing and puffing...told her I was too fat...wisely she said nothing else....UNTIL we were together two days ago...She said, "Mom...do you know what you weigh...do you know how gray you were the other day?" No and No I replied...so as not to bore you I won't go into every detail except to say that she is a nurse...asked me why I didn't treat trying to loose weight the same as the other things I had been successful with in my life...that struck a real cord in my brain...it was like my head snapped....
Now I have a new mission...to make me healthy...now I will never be 120lb but anything under 200 would just be amazing...I am planning my food...tracking my food...cutting out all but one diet pepsi as day...(watch for their stock to do down) ....I am going to be successful at this...won't be visiable for a month or so but then there should be a difference...will continue to update once a month!
