Turning the page on the calendar and realizing that three quarters of the year have come and gone without my weight decreasing but a few pounds is depressing but nothing new. It’s the same story, but different year. Last month marked my fifteenth wedding anniversary and also the fifteenth year that I have weighed over 300 lbs. The last few years, I have weighed closer to but never reaching 400 lbs. This is not an accomplishment to be proud of; I’m just stating a fact. Actually as far as weight and health are concerned, there is nothing to be proud of. With diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, time is not on my side. Fifteen years over 300 lbs and at least twenty years over 200 lbs is way too long and not doing me any favors. We all know this already.
It is way past time to get things rolling. Never giving up, I will keep on trying. Will this month prove to be a success or just more of the same? Only time will tell for sure. I don’t feel like spewing out all the hopes and promises that I will get on the ball. I’m thinking it; just don’t want to blurt it out yet again. One day, one meal at a time I will try to make the right choices.
Since it is now October, my daily goal for walking steps will be increased to 3000. This will be a struggle. I didn’t meet by 2500 steps/day goal for most days last week. I will make more of an effort this week/month.
That's all I've got today. Have a great week and start to October.
