It's been a year.
Tuesday, August 27, 2019
Well yesterday it had been a year since I came back to spark. I had been gone for quite a few years.
I had gone to my doctor last August for a sinus infection and when I stepped on the scale my weight was up to 245 lbs. That was the highest I ever weighed. I told the doctor I wanted to lose some weight and I remember telling her I wouId like to get down to maybe 200 lbs.
I was 72 years old. I was afraid that maybe I couldn't lose any weight at my age. I also told her that I was afraid that if I did start losing weight that the loss would trigger something else in my body to make me sick. I had heard stories about someone at my age starting to lose weight and it turning into something else more serious.
I sure didn't want that to happen.
She told me that I could lose weight at my age, so when I came home I decided to go back on Sparkpeople.
When I went back to Sparkpeople, I had found that a lot of the people I had been friends with were no longer around.
I needed to check my friends list to see who was still here. There were only a few. I did reach out to those few and started to keep in touch with them and also I started to make new friends.
Like they say, made new friends, but keep the old, some are silver and the other's are gold.
I must say, to date, I had gotten down 30 lbs by December 31st. By April of this year I had gotten down another 15 lbs. I had finally gotten down to 200 lbs. Then my body hit a plateau and I haven't lost anymore since then.
I sometimes think that maybe my subcontious mind remembered that I had told the doctor that I would like to get down to maybe 200 lbs. and stopped working at getting any lower.
So tonight I thought that maybe I would like to maybe get down to at least 180.
I think this is doable. Wish me luck. And thanks to everyone here for helping me along the way
You all are so important to me. Hugs to all of you.
