Well its the end of August 2012...I'm trying to get back on track and focus on my health/fitness and weight. I just updated my SP page and saw that the last and only Blog I have posted was about goals back in Dec of 2010...WOW! That's a long time ago. I don't think I accomplished any goals in 2011 or 2012 so far. How sad that makes me...
I'm 37 now and have been "obese" according to the body mass index for 15 years now. I hear the longer you're overweight the harder it is to get it off permanently. I don't want to be overweight like my mother and all the other women in my family...I used to be skinny (my whole life up to 22yrs old) and I want to be thin/fit and sexy again. I don't think my husband is attracked to me any more. We hardly ever have sex any more - part of that is that I have absolutely no sex drive - I need to figure out how to fix that too and my doctor isn't any help.
So my ultimate goal would be to weigh 145lbs again but I remember how hard it was just to reach 185 for my wedding back in '09 and I think my starting goal will be 217 down to 170 in 9 months and then we'll set new goals (that will be only 25 more pounds to reach 145...that's a very cool thought) Ok, back on track...current goal is to lose 7 pounds in Sept '12.
I rode my bicycle for the first time last night...I haven't ridden since I was a kid, probably 20 years ago or more (Ugh!). I only went 2.5 miles and thought I was going to die and my body is very sore today. I just have to keep on keepin' on and go work out anyway.
Thanks for listening to me ramble!
