Monday comes around so very quickly doesn't it?
There are only FIFTY left this year....
I have been trying to avoid the weight word. I don't want to diet anymore, I don't want to be ruled by the scales, the numbers, the tape measure. What options do I have if I want to get healthy? Is there a method of losing weight without counting calories? points? fats? carbs?
I need to lose weight for my health sake.
My Diabetes is under control, so under control my doctor thinks I am amazing..lol
My Arthritis is the problem at the moment, it only used to bother me in the summer, but now it bothers me no matter what time of the year. My left hip complains after walking, my knees, wrists and thumbs are sore most of the time. Climbing stairs is not fun, kneeling is impossible.
So here I am 51 pounds overweight. My weight has crept on again since my birthday, I have a wardrobe full of clothes that don't fit me. I am tired all the time, get breathless when walking, I feel and look OLD.
Who needs to get a grip?
Who needs to get her head on?
I have lost 3 pounds since New Years Day, just cutting back on goodies.
All the Christmas stuff has gone, thankfully.
We are living out of the freezer this month.
Getting into living a simpler life.
We are eating off of smaller plates.
Making do with what we have, in the freezer and the cupboard.
Just buying fresh milk, veg and fruit.
I do not want to be blogging just about my weight, I am far more than my weight. But I have to recognise my weight is taking over again. It has to stop NOW! There is so much inspiration out there in Blogland and I am tapping into it. I will blog once a month about my weight, no more no less. I will be using Dawne's motto, Eating Less, Moving More.
Thank you for your comments about Conor. Yes it is crazy as mentioned a couple of times, that here you can enlist to serve your Queen and country, before you can legally drink alcohol. The legal age for drinking in the UK is 18, you can enlist at 16.
