I’m back – it’s been a LONG and tedious road but I’m here. Two years ago, I began this weight loss journey and lost 50 pounds. Then about a year ago, I began fighting a mysterious illness (which no one ever figured out what the heck it was) with round after round of steroids and put back on over 40 pounds over the past 12 months. I’m better now and off of almost all the medicines. I’m tired of using that as an excuse for gaining back the weight. So, I’m back. I’ve got a lot of emotional junk on my plate right now so I’m not sure I can handle a focus on the two or three big issues in our lives along with focusing on weight loss and exercise BUT I’m going to try. That’s all I’m promising – I’m going to try.
I’ve got my two closest weight loss guru’s helping me – Terri and Kelly. Without them, I wouldn’t be able to even think about going down this long road again. I started again a few days ago – on Monday, January 21st, 2013 (taking deep breaths, tears in my eyes and ashamed) at 201.2 pounds. Two years ago, I started at 204.2 and promised I’d never get back into this position. Well, here I am. You’ve gotta start somewhere, right?
