Well it has been quite awhile since I blogged and truthfully this is almost like a restart for me. I got lazy made wrong choices and gained 25 lbs of the 65 I had lost. I didn't go crazy off the wagon but I lost sight of the reasons why I need to take care of me. So I started tracking food, and exercising like I did when I was losing weight and voila I am back to 208 lbs as of this morning down from a rebound of 225 lbs. The hardest part of gaining that weight back was the disappointment on my father's face. His comments about it didn't help either although his words were not said to hurt me, they did, a little. I finally asked him if that comment was his way of supporting me and telling me he loved me no matter what and if it wasn't then to stop saying those things. He did not realize he was being hurtful and undermining to my self esteem. Obviously I own a mirror and my new smaller sized clothes were getting too tight. So it was time to get back on the right track.
I was started on a new medication (Victoza) although my A1C is only 5.2. This supposedly helps with weight loss. IT REALLY DOES! This got me more motivated to exercise again. I rode 20 miles yesterday in my first group ride with 13 other people from Genesis Bikes. It was an absolutely perfect day to ride.
