Hey, ho, everyone. Well, as I have had talked about in the past, I have those medical issues. Cutting back on stress is one thing. But now, I have to address my other issues: my lack of exercise and diet. I don’t mean to go ON a diet, but I have to make some lifestyle changes. So, starting today, I am on Weight Watchers online. Granted, not sure how this is going to work when I am at Disney World in a few weeks, but I will at least have some context to portion control again.
I have my own goals for overall pounds to lose. Right now, I am concentrating on my first 10 percent. And no, I am not saying what that is because then you can figure it out lol. But, I hope to lose it before we leave for Hawaii in January.
One thing I want to do is be in better shape for AAD Savannah. This year was horrible for me. With my high blood pressure, the meds and my back, ARGH. So, I want to get into shape for Savannah. Last year, for the second year, I wanted to get a corset, but at my weight, it just didn’t sound like a good idea. When I was in NOLA, I decided that I needed to make a change.I want to be able to get myself a corset…and I am going to spend a fortune on it lol. I also have plans for at least TWO costumes. I KNOW, surprising. But I want to be able to have fun with it and to do that, I need to be at a healthier weight.
This isn’t about getting to a size 2. This is about losing excess weight, getting active, and bringing my bp down so I can get off meds.
So, today I started the WW online. It took me a couple months, but I had a lot of other things going on that I used as an excuse not to. Not anymore. I am going to concentrate not so much on the numbers but on changing my lifestyle once and for all. It isn’t going to be easy. I have been down this road before, but now, my life really depends on it. My quality of life is too low and I am sick of not doing things because of my weight. I will do my best to check in every Sunday or Monday on my progress. First big thing is go walk around the block tonight, along with following the points plan.
If there are any WW online members out there and would like to be in a group to support each other, let me know. I am not endorsing them, but if you are a member, let me know so we can hook up.
