Okay, so it's been a whole month since I posted. I have NO excuse...a few reasons, but won't go into everything. I will promise to be better about posting.
I have stayed on points during my absence and am now at 13 pounds lost. I weigh in on Wednesdays so make sure to stop by and check out my ticker at the bottom of the page to see my updated total.
I haven't been exercising, but will start an "Aqua Fitness" class on Tuesday. Yikes! I'm not worried about the actual class, but the thought of wearing a swimsuit is terrifying. I have friends who have been going and they SWEAR that there are no skinny bitches wearing thongs attending. The first thigh I see without cellulite and I'm outta there!
A bit about me. I have NOT been overweight all my life. When I was in high school, I had a softball coach who said that he'd bet I had to run around in the shower to get wet. In June of 2004 I had a hysterectomy and things went downhill from there over the next 11 months. During the fall of 2004, I had 8 people die over an 8 week period. The last funeral I attended was 4 days before Christmas. I started 2005 with my yearly physical and my doctor asked how I was feeling. I told him what was going on and he suggested counselling. I was okay going for the next few months, but in March I turned 40, then 6 weeks later my oldest son graduated high school, my middle son left middle school and my youngest son left elementary school. Quite a few milestones to have all at once. I ended up getting an Rx. One of the side effects was weightgain. It said that the average gain for a person taking 1 per day was 40#s over 6 months. I took 4 per day for the next 2 years and gained 88#s. I am now "drug-free" and losing the weight.
I promise that my blog won't always be so depressing, but I wanted to let y'all know "my story". I would appreciate any comments, questions, encouragement, etc.
