I started again because I know women my age that have died of COVID. Two women who had very similar lives as myself. Both were very overweight. It really hit me that it could have been me. So I decided to get my blood pressure under control and to watch what I ate so if I contract this illness, I would be able to beat it. My only goal was to move more and eat less. If the result was to lose weight and look better that would be great. That being said the weight is going but really slowly. My husband and daughter tell me they see a big difference. It felt great. But yesterday I saw family I haven’t seen in months. I heard them tell my sister how much weight she lost and how good she looks. ( she has not been dieting or losing any weight). I was happy they complimented her, but no one even noticed my loss. I felt pretty disheartened. I know I’m not doing this for that reason, but it would have felt good. Took the wind out from under my sails. Lol. But I will push on.
