Now that I am back in town, I will go to the Rec and do some real exercise. Wednesday weigh-in is just around the corner.
Continued. . .while at the rec center I watched Oprah while I biked. She was talking about her "new life" series and how people who have lost a great deal of weight have gained it back and are ashamed to carry on. I think that is an internal fear that I have. My husband tells me to convert that fear into a motivator to stay on my target. I had decided two years ago that I needed to exercise to become more healthy. I had hoped an added benefit would be weight loss. It didn't happen and I want to tell you, I worked at it hard.
The scientific reality is "calories in, calories out". Some of us were born with genes that make life more challenging. I believe my early life hysterectomy and my recent thyroid issues have not been my best buddies either. Nevertheless, this band and I are in this for the long haul.My new slogan is:
A healthier me!
