2014 Winter 5% Challenge

Thursday, January 02, 2014

I joined the 8 week challenge to lose 5% of my weight in order to feel good and look better. I had a lumbar surgery last Spring that cut bone out, grafted bone in, and added 4 screws. For the 1st 3 months following the procedure, I was not allowed to do ANYTHING (even make my bed). Well, I was allowed to eat, and eat I did.

Now 27 pounds heavier, I don't have as much energy as I should, get winded too easily, and cannot fit into numerous nice looking clothes. I have found myself relegated to a small section in my closet.

Getting a jump start on losing this weight gain will give me back my vitality, self-respect about my appearance, not to mention nice clothes to wear (and look good in them!) I'm am ready to go the long haul with enthusiasm! Let's get the show on the road! emoticon

P.S. This blog was a Challenge assignment, my 1st blog ever!
