One day at a time.
Thursday, January 16, 2020
This has been my motto since Sept 2006. It was more relevant all last year (2019) with medical issues for me, my mom and my husband. Then my mom passed away of complications of stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer on October 15, 2019. Now I have added I'm trying.
I have been heavy most of my life. Partly due to un-diagnosed hereditary thyroid condition (military doctors wouldnt do the right test to confirm it). At my highest I was 357lbs (thanks to issues with my ex-husband). In 2005 I got down to 280 but crept back up to about 330. Then in 2013 or 2014 after not knowing I was diabetic for 6 months, I ended up in the hospital over Easter.The doctors still cant agree if it was a mini stroke or a misdiagnosis of migraines. So that was a crash where I lost 70lbs in 3 months. Not the healthy way of doing it. That started a domino effect of other health problems.
I had been saying after my surgery this past May that I needed to start getting in shape and be serious about it.
My niece is a personal trainer and the gym she goes to was having a special, a 6 month membership that is normally $50 was now $25 and then after that it is $24 a month.
So I bought it last Thursday, signed up on Friday, and stated working out on Saturday.
Still just taking it one day at a time.
