I need to step it up !

Saturday, July 06, 2013

I realize now that im not doing enough to get my weight loss in action! The main reason is i have arthritis and my body hurts so i do my Gardening cleaning etc but i need to get that extra time in walking! I always seem to do better if i start on a Monday so im gona slowly get back to my longer walks!
I noticed in our little quaint Beautiful town thats full of visiters from all over the country still get out and do there walking, running etc and the young ones look so fit and im almost jealous but admiring them also i didnt do that when i was younger so i ended up with such a lot of baggage to carry on my older arthritic joints! I wanna do better and i keep goofing up ! Im getting sick of not getting any where... Ive lost the proud feeling i felt when i lost all the weight , igained a little but not much! The good thing is i have continued eating healthy ,,just to much healthy and when i go to the doc my cholesteral is great no diabetes, low Blood pressure so im not a total failure! I just need to give my self a swift kick and move even tho i dont feel like it, once i get going even when my back hurts and knees too im enjoying being out in Nature so im ready to give my self a swift kick and take control of my life , I need to be the boss of me !I know i can do it so i need to take action now!

    Hi Bonnie!

    You are definitely not a failure, you are such a wonderful person.
    It is hard to lose weight, and so much harder as we age, as you know.

    It is great that you are eating healthy, and just take one day at a time, and do what you can.

    I was excited to see that you had posted a blog.

    Keep on keeping on, Bonnie.

I have gotten a little out of control with my eating, but when my mind/body connection connects, it will come, and yours will too! We CAN do it girl! Here's to cheerleading, and taking care of ourselves. We are so worth it! Yay us! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Here is an article link that I hope will be helpful. We are here for you girl!

    Bonnie dear, you have done so well !.
    Keeping your cholesterol in range, your blood pressure down and your weight down is a great accomplishment..
    All you need to do is walk a little more, and lessen the portions of your healthy eating.
    Tomorrow is a good time to dart back on track ..
    The more you walk the less your pain will feel .. I am a testament to that.
    I have a Fitbit and just love challenging myself to increasing steps ..
    Know that we are here for you and cheering you on ...
    Much Love my lovely friend ..
    Hugs Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Bonnie, You're not a failure at ALL!! emoticon Eating healthy and keeping your cholesterol, etc., where it should be is a huge accomplishment along with the weight loss. It's a great idea to add more walking to your routine, even a little more each day will be helpful. I know you can do it!
