Wake Up Call

I had a doctors appointment yesterday. It did not go well. But it did wake me up. I deal with stress in bad ways. With Brae's medical issues seeming to crop back up in full force stress has been upon me lately. I knew I had gained some weight. I didn't realize how much...OMG...it was outrageous...I knew things were tighter, not fitting so on, but I had no clue. How silly is that? I didn't even realize how much I had gained.

For me, a person with high blood pressure and heart issues anyway this is not something I need to do. Also it ticks me off because I had lost all of this before and kept it off for over a year and then quit excercising, quit my healthier habits.

So I am back on again, I have to get healthier. I have to be conscious of when I eat because I want and when I eat because I think chocolate fixes everything.

All my meds for blood pressure, and everything has been adjusted. I have also added some meds for my feelings of not being right here lately.

So far it is 5:00 pm on day one and I have done good, and excercised....ticks me off that I couldn't do near as much as I did three years ago. I will get back there, I needed this wake up call.

Oh, I can totally relate. I stepped on the scale for the first time in probably 2 months today. I was shocked and disgusted with myself. That was my wake up call as well.

Hubby wanted to go out to dinner tonight, I even behaved myself pretty well. At least the excercise is back and I am just going to have to make myself keep at it.

I hear ya on the weight gain. We should make a goal to try and loose what 25 pounds each by march that's five pounds a month before you get here. lol I always try to eat salads when we go out. Just keep telling yourself NO I know that word is hard for you to say lol. but we can do this.
