Dear Santa- Can I get a kick in the pants?

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

I'm not new here, though I sure could be. Since about May 2008, I've watched my weight rise, even when making a conscious effort. Talk about disheartening!

Currently, I'm at my highest weight. In August, I caught a bad case of pneumonia, or as I call it.. a SUPER BUG. Now, with the addition of 40mg/day prednisone, and my lungs burning within 20min on an elliptical, I don't see myself losing weight any time soon. My sister has encouraged me to give it another shot, and I'm willing to give it a try.

  You can do it! It sounds like we have somewhat similar situations. I restarted right before Thanksgiving after having my kick in the pants and a partial reprieve health wise. I knew that if I didn't change my ways, I'd be in serious health trouble. I started back with 10 minutes on my spinning bike. I turned up my music and told myself that I only had to last through 2.5-3 songs. From there I've been working my way back into exercise and better eating. It was hard at first, but it did get easier. emoticon
