Starting again but weight is still gone
Wednesday, January 23, 2019
When I started on Sparkpeople, it was very new. It says 2009 on my page but I'm sure it was earlier than that. I was 240 pounds. Then I was 234 pounds for many years. Five years ago, I got down to 200 pounds but then my daughter went through martial problems, serious illness and my grandkids got epilepsy and autism. Not to mention the stress of being a politician. I went up to 226 pounds. Now after retiring and stabilizing of family problems, I am 212 pounds and back to working with Sparkpeople.
Last week I sent away all my 2x clothes to the diabetes drive, deciding that I am now permanently 1x and xxl. Soon I will be back to Large. I shop now in regular stores.
Yes it is taking a long, long time to lose weight. But I am 65, so no longer have to worry about being skinny, just looking after my health.
