This is where I am going to log my weight loss journey..
All the ups and all the downs..
All the struggles and all the accomplishments.
All the good and all the ugly.
I cannot believe I have let myself go so far, I just kept saying "I will start Monday" over and over again, well that Monday never came, so now it's just time to start.
No more excuses, I can't afford them anymore..
It's time to get real and time to do the work..I made myself this way, I made the choices I made and they were not to my health benefit, I would have to say my mother would be shocked if she saw me now.
I used a lot of things in the past as excuses, and really that's all they were, I became a junkie to emotional eating, and I am slowly trying to find other ways to vent those feelings out.
There are so many ways I can work out my feelings, such as writing them down, walking them off, sweating them out, or finding a friend to talk them through..food is really no comfort, I have become addicted to food and I need to kick that habit because it's all junk food I have become addicted to.
I am searching the internet for healthy recipes and am trying new ones out.
This journey will be a while, so I am going to write my story here..each day I plan on writing how my day went.
I am shooting to lose at least 2 pounds this week, am shooting to lower my sugar by 3 points this week and shooting to lower my A1C by at least a point by March 5 which is when I return to the doctor.
I am going to focus on me now, my daughter and her children have moved out into a place of their own, so now it is just me and the hubs..
This will be the place I come to post everything from what I ate, to the exercise I did, and then blog about how I am feeling about the choices I am making.
I have bad pain in my hips, my lower back, and my left knee..
I actually have so much weight on my small short frame I look like a Puffer fish all blown up
Sorry for the image, but it brings to life how I am feeling right now..
I will be back later to blog todays final entry on how my day went and how I am feeling about it!!!
