Another new year and I find myself in the same condition, fat, sore and tired.
I am fat, obese, morbidly obese and just under 400 pounds on a five foot three inch frame.
I am sore from inflammation and osteoarthritis in my knees. Mainly my left knee has been in excruciating pain for the last couple of weeks.
I am tired of
- being fat
- being in pain
- not sleeping because of the pain
- being in the same condition year after year
Yet, I am stuck.
While I may be depressing, I am not depressed.
My ability to lose weight sometimes feels hopeless but I am still hopeful. Why I don’t know, but I am.
Hoping and wishing will get me no where. Change is needed. Action is needed.
A plan is needed. Darn, I don’t have one of those…yet. In the absence of a plan, I will focus on making changes from what I normally do. The obvious…I will eat less. I want to make healthier food choices too. This is where and what I will start with. For now, that is enough. I will work on that.
Happy New Year. I hope 2016 brings great things for you all.
