OK, I'll reassure you right up front that I am NOT pregnant. I'm 64 years old, after all! But I have reached the end of my rope after years of LOOKING about 8 months pregnant!

I inherited a strong predisposition to storing nearly all my excess body fat on my belly. If you've ever been pregnant, you know how your back feels with that extra load hanging out front. Well, I've felt that way for YEARS and I'm so tired of it!!! It's hard enough getting up off the couch to begin with (when I was pregnant, my husband used to say "Get the crane!" when I struggled to get to my feet!). Then, when I'm up and doing something for just a little while, my back gets so tired so fast that all I want to do is sit down again.

Why do I put up with this? Why do I listen to myself when I say that I'm too tired to go out for a walk? Good grief! I'm done with it! I really think I have gotten sick enough of living like this to seriously DO something about it!!! I can't change my genes, but I CAN change my habits and drop this stupid extra weight.

Thanks for putting up with my rant. I just had to get this out in hopes that it will be the motivation I need to finally get serious about changing my habits. Please feel free to hold me accountable, Spark Friends!
