Been gone a long time.......

Sunday, May 14, 2017

I came here in 2010 and I lost a total of 79 pounds. I left in 2015 and gained it all back.

I promised myself I wouldn't do that. I promised myself that I would maintain what I had gained -- smaller clothes, better health, fitter heart and lungs, stronger muscles, a leaner body, and a more youthful appearance. I was 44 at the time....I looked like I was in my early 30s.

And so, my clothes are the same size they were when I started 7 years ago. I let stress and depression, disappointment, and disillusion with others affect me. My small changes begin tomorrow at 6 am.

Healthy breakfast -- no more fast food drive thru because it is quick and convenient. Water, no more tea with fake sweeteners. A healthy lunch and NO stopping on the way home for a "snack". The gym will be next...... gotta figure out how to put it into my schedule. emoticon

I need to see my doctor again. I haven't been in a long time. Mostly because I was mad at him for ignoring my pleas about stress and depression, and my fear that I would wind up right where I am now. He and I will have to come to terms with our failures..... his to me and mine to myself.

Wish me luck.

    Good luck! I also recommend the 30 day fitness challenge app especially if your pressed for time, it takes me 10 minutes to do the bc arm, legs, butt, abs and full body workout plus you only need a chair or bench! I love it
