Lord Love A Duck!
Good Morning, Well I posted one of my favorite pictures of myself. That was last summer, drum roll please, at 275 lbs. I can't believe it. Today I found my scale, so being in a great mood and knowing it was not going to be good...I slowly stepped on it, do you ever realize you go slower thinking you wont weigh as much...So first it was like, step away from the scale and take all your friends with you....No,no,no, I am not going to think that way! So instead I could hear me thinking, LORD love a Duck...My Mom always used to say it. Odd I would think of it today! So I could keep rambling, but I have to be real with myself and just own it. 295, not bad if I were 8 feet tall, but I am only 5 feet three, and as you age you get shorter so probably
five feet two....I was going to say I always took care of myself, but obviously not, what I meant was always fixed up, makeup on, nails done, looking my best...Always the short, round, cute one. I have always been happy, had boyfriends, on my second marriage, outgoing,lots of friends and acquaintances, coached ball 7 years ago, played all the high school sports...and here I am today where almost every physical activity is an effort. Part of that is my illness, my doctor said maybe three quarters of it. I know if I lost some weight I would have more energy, how can you not right! So it is only getting better from here. I will not let this number discourage me or ruin my day....off to get my water, trying for eight today! I hope this finds you all well and motivated!Until again.
