Summertime, and the living is easy
Wednesday, July 18, 2018
Summer is going too fast! I haven't spent nearly enough time with grandkids.
Thinking today....having this much weight to lose means no one notices when I gain or lose weight. I lost more than 100 lbs, gained back 60, relost it...and nobody noticed any of it. It could be frustrating. Or it could be "permission" to keep gaining. But I've been choosing to love myself enough to value my health above what others think. Well, to a point. Due to diabetes I am supposed to see the doctor every 3-4 months. I'm 7 months late because it is difficult to get out and I haven't organized a ride. I should want to go because I have lost weight, blood sugars have been good, and I'm getting closer to the weight I was told to be for hip replacements. This should be a positive appointment instead of one of the many negative ones. I've had trouble asking for help when needed because I don't want to be considered a burden. But I'm quick to help others. Needing to reconsider respect for myself as much as for others.
