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.
