I'm back!

Saturday, January 18, 2014

It's been a few years but I really am so sick of being overweight and this time I have to get the weight off.

I was watching "Life in the ER" or something like that and a woman in her 60's came in with stroke symptoms. That's when it dawned on me that I have to get healthier or I could be in the same position. I don't want my kids to have to end up taking care of me but I'm 61 and if I don't get healthier now, that's what's going to happen.

I told this to my overweight younger daughter and she said she's sick of it also, so we are in this together and so far, it hasn't been that hard so hopefully I can stick to it.

I have just posted a very similar blog. I am sick of being fat too - maybe we can help inspire each other?? I am feeling older than I should because of the extra weight I am carrying and I can not get away with it like I used to do when I was younger - it calls for drastic action. Are you with me??
