So, here I am once more.
It amazes me how quickly this can 'get away from you'. I thought, I can get back on the proverbial horse and be back to where I was - no problem. What a crock! I have maxed out at 292 pounds and thought that was pretty bad, but since the last time I was here, I've managed to GAIN more weight. Now, at a whopping 302, I am so depressed I scarcely have the energy to complain.
My doctor is recommending a daily regimen of baby aspirin as most of my family dies from major heart attacks, heart disease and/or strokes. Diabetes also runs rampant in my family and now, my sugar is up (though I haven't been officially diagnosed yet, as they're hoping to get it back down through diet), my cholesterol is up and my "good" cholesterol is shockingly low! Also, it seems I've developed Anemia, so that's fun.
It's difficult to breathe. I can't walk anywhere without having acute sciatica or muscle spasms in my back, I have no energy to play with my 3-year-old grandson and I've just found out I'm expecting my SECOND grandchild sometime in the fall! I'm never going to live to see 60 at this rate! ...oh yeah, and I'm about to start a job in the medical field that will require me to be on my feet, which currently - I can't do! I've GOT to make a change and try not to get discouraged because it always seems to come off SO much more slowly than it goes on.
This is the problem I have, (and I'm sure many people out there can relate). I start out full of hope and determination, but then it seems as though I'm working so hard for negligible results that I can't really see and then I get discouraged and wind up losing motivation.
I'm really hoping this time will be different. I'm praying this time, maybe I can find a friend or two to really connect with and stay in-touch with to help me and that allow me to help them through talking and sharing our journeys.
The launch date for the new effort begins Saturday, March 3rd! Feel free to reach out if your interested in connecting with me.
