Weight Loss

If you know me, you know that I have gained and lost and then gained back weight over the last 12 years. The last three have been the most difficult because of other health issues. I ended up having three surgeries in less than two years with doctors orders to hold the exercise due to some heart rhythm irregularities. Now I am finally told that I can exercise again! Yeah...and yuck! You know what I mean? I absolutely hate to sweat! I am a woman who loves her central air and comfort!

Terri, over at Lakewood Manor, has begun a journey that I am joining with her in. She is diligently attempting to take off some weight. That blog is here. In order to do this she has announced her intentions and is posting ideas and looking for more ideas. I will be following along with Terri and we will see how it goes.

I absolutely loved my time at Curves, before all the health issues popped up. I was losing weight and inches. I felt more energized. I just hesitate to start back because it is hard on the joints and because Warren's doctor really wants him to get a treadmill. I hate to spend money on both. Perhaps I will attempt to use the treadmill and some exercise videos...but hear me now...if they don't work, I am going back to Curves!

My most asked question of myself these days, when I really want to eat that extra something is, " Do I want to eat that more than I want to be thin and healthy?"
Sometimes I do...and if that is the case at this point I go ahead. Many times I really don't so some habits are being broken.

Anyone want to join Terri and myself?

I will try. With my back pain 24/7 I would have to work through the pain. I don't overeat just the pain stops me from exercising. I can't even go outside right now. Who would want to? I will if you will!!
