Last year at this time, I was miserable both emotionally and physically. Had just lost my job due to plant closing (first time unemployed in more than 30 years) and my health and self-esteem was not the best in the world. Fast forward to today. Recently employed, and a bonus it's close to home. As for my health and self-esteem, I've lost 50 lbs +/- and off my blood pressure and cholesterol medication.
Although, I've not kept up my healthier lifestyle practices in place the last couple of months, I'm ready to re-initiate and get the next 50 lbs off. One of the many things I've learned is how important it is to keep moving. I don't care if it's just 10 or 15 minutes a day, move! The other, track your food. When you see what it amounts to in numbers it hits home a little more.
So, for all those starting out on this journey for the first time, hang in there, you can do it and YES you may have setbacks, but don't let that deter you from getting right back up and moving on!!!
