In January 2011, when this weight loss journey began, the goal was to weigh 150 by May 27, 2012. After a long discussion with the doctors, it was obvious that this was unattainable, so I revised the number to 180 and set the goal date to coincide with my nieces wedding the end of this summer. Doctor Supportive thought this was still high. He insisted that I have a complete workup before starting any sort of program. We have all heard this, agreed itís the right thing to do, but do we. Good thing I did had a little hidden problem that was taken care of and I started to get going.
Over the last year, there have been many setbacks. Some my own fault, others health related making it difficult to exercise. Iíve only kept 15 pounds off. Not what I really wanted but Iím almost 62 the pounds donít drop off like they did when I was 30. Fast forward to this January, everything started to fall apart, I couldnít get out of my own way, and just the thought of exercising exhausted me. Knowing things werenít right and it was time for my appointment any ways a visit with my favorite MD was in order. Oops, Houston we have a problem. February and March were very bad months, there were weeks were I couldnít do anything, and I really didnít care.
The good news is Iíve lost 15 pounds; I enjoy exercising and am able to do things outside in the yard again.
Bad news is the medication is having an effect on the weight loss. However, if the next set of tests comes back okay, I can start cutting back on the worst offender.
There is an exciting three months ahead of me with time with the grandchildren, family reunions, weddings, and a long awaited vacation. I am excited. I am Alive, Thank you Lord!
