First of all if you have never seen the above movie, I would reccomend you do. It is a movie staring, Johnny Depp and Leonardo Dicaprio, both of them much younger. It is a true story about a mother and her children and the hardships they deal with as a family. The mother struggles with morbid obesity, and one of the children have autism. It is an older movie. That movie haunted me and has lingered with me ever since. I won't tell you the rest of it. It was a very powerful, moving and touching movie.
So why would I mention it here, because since I have been ill and have gained some weight, I do not want to be that woman. Today I read a bloggers story and it was as if I had just read the story about my LIFE. It was a very brave, be real account of health issues and what to expect as we age and have to deal with all these things.
I like her wants it for health reasons, not to be a stick woman in a bikini, I want to have energy to walk longer, to not have sore legs, to help my present condition.
So far I have done fairly well, weighin is on the first of September. I have definately made progress and Joanna, the water hint is working for me, ice cold water with lemon slice and about 1 thin slices of cucumber. I drank more than I have in quite some time. So I hope all of you are well and on track, if your not,just get back on it. To our success
