Monday again!

Monday, September 28, 2009

Here it is, another new week. Once again I have pulled a muscle, although I really don't know when or how, so I am being a little gentle to avoid more damage.

Everywhere I turn there is a talk show or an article or something about obesity and getting healthy. I don't recall being so aware of it before, but maybe it is also more prevalent, since obesity has become even more of a rampany issue than in years past.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow night's Biggest Loser. This morning I watched Dr. Oz who is doing a Health Challenge with a group of very obese people. And I look at them and think--wow, not me! It feels so good, so--superior. Yet 4 years ago I was right there where they are. I look at them and wonder, would I have gotten that heavy? It is possible. I managed to get up over 250 pounds without realizing. I am infinitely thankful that I was able to reverse that trend before it became any worse.

Despite the fact that I have lost somewhere around 75 pounds, and kept it off for nearly 2 years, I am still dealing with the healthy issues that resulted from the years of carrying all that excess fat around--blood pressure medication to be taken daily. My cholesterol is iffy, which might or might not be related to the weight, but I still have to try to improve that as well.

Health is a life long goal and I have to work hard at it, because I didn't learn how to do the things that promote it when I was young. Eating healthy, exercising--if only those had been part of my life from childhood! I'll never regain those years, but I sure as hell will never regain those pounds either!
