2013 - A new year - a new step

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

2013 - wow, another year has come upon us and I have looked into the mirror and I am still looking at the same me. On the one hand, I am happy that I have not gained the weight back that I managed to lose over the last 6 months. But on the other hand, I have not lost much in the last few months.

I was in the hospital in November with a bleeding ulcer, and according to my tests done after Christmas, they are still healing, so I still have to watch what I eat, take medication to heal my stomach and gut. I have multiple health issues that affect me on a daily basis, so I never know if I can physically move from one day to the next. I want to move, I want to exercise, I want to lose weight. I do not want to use my health as a deterrent or an excuse anymore. But it is a fact that I have to live with. Daily.

I am joining a new fitness center tomorrow with my husband. He has a lot of weight to lose. I have, right now, about 80 pounds to lose. I know if I take it a day at a time, and listen to my body, I can make some changes.

Making positive changes. - eating better / healthier - drinking more water / stopping my diet coke addiction - moving more / not hurting so much - discontinuing medications - leaving stress behind me / finding healthy outlets for stress

I am looking forward to this and SO much more in the coming months. This is going to be my year!
