the last few years have not been good to me as far as my weight goes. A lot of things happened to me all at once, so I cannot pin point the exact cause of my weight gain. I just know I have gone from a size 8 to a size 12! It started with menopause. Then I quit smoking cigarettes. Then I had a horrible psoriasis out break that almost caused me to have a nervous break down. Then my thyroid went to shit. And to top things off I have been on radiation shots for almost a year for it. I wont go into how beautiful my hair looks these days or what's left of it! I am also a carb addict. Period. And I do not do well with out them for very long.
But I am getting better and I will not be out done by any of this!
Even though this weight gain is depressing for me at times...I know for a fact that it is not what happens to you...it is how you deal with it. And I will deal with this. Sometimes encouragement that you are not alone helps.
I am 52 years old. I will never be 110 pounds again. I just want to be healthy and feel good. Like I did 2 years ago. I have a few more months of treatment left and the Dr says my energy level and hair should return.
So with all that said and whining behind me...my goal is to reduce ~ not quit my carb intake. (that could be the last straw for me right now!) I will drink more water. And continue my twice a day walk at work. My last visit to the Dr (2 weeks ago) I had lost 3 pounds! I have to wonder if all that was the hair I have lost! At this rate I may reach my goal by 2050! Wish me luck and thanks for any support!
