Well it happened - I worked so hard for 3 years and finally June of 2010 I hit a goal of 150 pounds and not 16 months later I have gained 60 of those pounds back. My doctor said I have to get this weight off even if it means taking drastic measures as my back cannot take the extra weight. I am not allowed to lift anything over ten pounds and I am carrying 50 pounds more than I need.
I know what happened - my back started hurting again - the holidays came - hubby came home from deployment and I just went back to my old habits. I ate what ever I wanted especially soft serve ice cream that I found at the C-Store. I began staying in bed most of the day except to get cleaned up and find something to eat. There wasn't any exercise or accountability.
So I am on the road again - Minna - My ever faithful German Shepherd have hit the road again. Last night and tonight we took a quick walk around the block and quick for me is 50 minutes - I remember when Minna and I use to walk 10 miles or more every day.... heavy sigh ohhhhh the good ole days.
Doc says he will see me back in 8 weeks and he hopes I have lost near 32 pounds - that's like 6 pounds a week or something stupid - 2 or 3 pounds is safe ohhh I don't know I just dread going through this whole thing again when I had worked so hard and looked so good. I was so proud of myself last year and I could wear anything. But pulling myself back together again.... I promise not to do it again.
Going forward today is the only day I am living for - not yesterday or tomorrow - today only
and as for today I can honestly say I walked and didn't go over my calorie budget.
GO ME!!! Take Care of Yourself
