I had a "light bulb moment" today, in fact it wasn't a light bulb, it was a "Mega Spotlight Moment".
I was holding James the beautiful five month old son of my daughter's best friend. He was so heavy I couldn't stand up with him. I asked Jo, his mum what he weighed.
Fifteen pounds was the reply. I sat there playing with him and it dawned on me, I need to loose FOUR James'......
If I was struggling to hold him, my poor skeleton, heart, lungs, liver, kidney's and muscles must be more than struggling!!
It is gobsmacking to think about it and it has made me all the more determined to get a move on and lose the weight and get fitter.
Today I have done ten minutes on the Wii Fit Board.
I have done 4000 steps.
I have done 5 sit up's, well my version of them...
I have eaten healthy food.
I am only taking baby steps at the moment, but at least I am taking them.
My mood is improving, I feel I am back in control. Taking things a day at a time and not looking for big numbers.
If the wonderful Sir Ranulph Feinnes can climb Everest at the age of 65 by just plodding, there is much hope for me.
God Bless the Man
