I need to lose weight for my daughters wedding in 2018. But for myself also. To get my life back. X
I have lost myself, when I was young I was very pretty, and that's all I had going for me, I know now you are more than what you look like, but for people that's what they judge you on.
I feel the same too. Some days I look at my body and think of how much better I would feel about myself if I could just be who I used to be. I was slimmer, more active, and I feel like people treated me much differently back then. I also find myself to be a bit more grumpy these days and I hate that side of me. I would like to just enjoy living but I also want to be happy with me, as a whole. Inside and out. I guess I either better start hopping on my elliptical and watching what I eat or I'll have to just learn to love my flabby bits... Anna, you still are very pretty and I know what you mean, most people do judge us on how we look after ourselves. It's a shame because I've recently moved to where I am now and have found it very hard to make friends here. I've never had that problem, ever.
I have not been successful except in two areas: 1) I won"t give up and, 2) I will keep looking for strategies to get this done.
I myself don't drink sodas. I may have one maybe twice a year. I have started drinking Fruit 2/O. It's fizzy but it helps with my upset stomach when I need a good burp. My upset stomach is very painful. The pain is sharp and goes right to the back.
I had hubby to walk with. We were doing pretty good but then his leg gave out on him and now he's walking with a big limp. He sees the doc tomorrow. Then a friend of mine who owns the café where we do "Stitch n' Knit" (more like stitch and bitch lol) asked if anyone wanted to be her walking partner three times a week. So two of us have started walking with her. we walked one night. The other night, she had a meeting and the other had a date. Then it was the weekend. I ended up walking on my own. If I wait on others, I'll never get my walking done and lose the weight I need to breathe easier. I have heart failure and can't breathe when I walk too fast or too far. I have a lot of pain also due to arthritis and fibro but I just ignore the pain and I use a cane to help. Slow and steady is what I need. I just omit things one at a time. When Sausage on a bun is on the menu, I omit the bun and have Sausage and salad.
