I have always used that as my policy on my blog. So I have something to tell you and it is the most embarrassing, most disappointing, most discouraging news I could ever tell you. However my partner in this has been honest from day one…so I am going to be too.
I once weighed in at 179 lbs…a bit less but I won’t count the stupidity I did to get there. The 179 was a healthy weight, a good weight for me and a weight I will be weighing again this year. I don’t mind turning 51 this year is I can weigh close to that. I won’t be there yet because …. well I am right now weighing in at 201.4, two weeks ago at 206.6. I am no longer in the onederland and I am very upset with myself. 2 years ago I was 179, than Mike went to college and my world came undone and …well so did I. However I am back and I am working hard to get back to where I want to be.
Deb and I have picked Mother’s day. It’s a good day to shoot for the 180lb mark. It’s 2 lbs a week and so far I’m a bit ahead so that means on those weeks where I’ve worked hard but nothing has happened I should be okay.
Honesty is the best policy and I’m sorry I let you guys down. I have been trying to get back on the wagon, I keep trying and trying but my heart just really wasn’t in it. I really didn’t like Mike gone, now it doesn’t mean I wasn’t proud because my Lord am I, was I, it just meant I didn’t think I could do this but I did, I learned, I lived and now I’m going to live some more and get this right.
Week 3, the beginning. Today was an awesome day. I ran 2 miles in 27:11. Also 10 minutes on the elliptical. For some reason my C25K didn’t register my Week 1 Day 3, so today I did it again….Tomorrow I’ll do Week 2. I do need to do my stretching, I didn’t do today so will tomorrow too.
Take care my friends and thank you. Thank you for being there for me. For supporting me, for helping me and for putting up with my stupidness. My blog, healthy, wealthy, wise … NOT but learning. Learning….every single day!!!
