Thank you for your words of encoragement. It would be great to have a buddy, as fortunatley for them, most of my friends do not have weight problems, and although there are weight issues within the family, when I try and diet with my sister, if she has a bad day and tells me about it, it tends to put me on a downer.
I care for my mum who is 83. She had me when she was 39, so luckily, I am still young enough to care for her, and run her about to all her appointments. She has high blood pressure,is a type 2 diabetic, and an array of other, mainly weight related illnesses, and is scares me to think that I am on the same track, so want to do somthing about it now.
I really do not want my children, left to look after me in 40 years, because I am not taking care of myself now.
(Continued from last note) Plus the BP thing is really dangerous (stroke, heart attack). When I put it in the tracker this morning it changed me from Stage 1 to Stage 2 hypertension. So anyway I know I need to lose weight. But I can't seem to be persistent. Well, we have a reason to stay on it now. March of next year is Mom & Dad's 60 wedding anniv. We are having a party for them in Willow. It will be on the 20. We now have a reason to stay on our diets. We want to go to this part looking great. There will be lots of picture taking. Is that enough motivation for you??????? Are you on board with me? Shall we get serious??? Let me know. love you
Hey, well as you can tell I am up again. This past week I have been so depressed over the money thing. And the issues with the job and all. And when I was at mom's last week she took my blood pressure and it was crazy. 201/113. Anyway, I went and got the machine to keep track because she told me it was not safe to do that power walking with my BP that high. I don't have my medicine anymore so long story short it scared me. Then this morning I was sitting on my bed and took a long hard look at myself. I am fat, getting old, and getting ugly. But you know, I have watched Biggest Loser. I know what changes in the face these people have when they lose all the weight they need to lose. (To be continued)
