Wow ... It is now three years later and I am still signing the same song. Yuck. The worst thing is that I am am 18 pounds heavier with my top weight at 288.6. At this rate I will be over 300 pounds very soon!
When am I going to start putting myself first and making me a priority. In 2011 I was laidoff (after 16 years); in 2012 my mom's health started getting worse; and, in 2013 my favorite uncle passed any and mom's suffered a few mini strokes is now living with me. So I know that I have been through a lot. But I can't keep doing this.
Praying for the inspiration, determination and focus to be able to put and keep my needs/requirements first!
I have been struggling with my weight since the birth of my daughter. I had been able to lose weight more easily in my 20's. Then my 30's can and it has been a serious struggle getting worse with every year.
Now, I am in my mid-40's and every year has brought a new high in my weight. I will be 47 this year and need to commit to myself to make time to put me first and lose this weight. My body is feeling the wear and tear of all the extra weight I am carrying.
I started 2011 weighing in at 270 lbs and wearing a size 22 at my largest point. I am making mini goals to lose approx. 20-30 lbs at a time to get to my ultimate goal. At the end of my journey I want to weigh about 190 lbs and/or wear a size 12, which ever comes first.
With the stresses of life (work, school, family) and the physical pain of my arthritic knees it has been difficult to lost anything much less stop gaining weight. I recently shot up to my new all time high weight of 285 pounds. This is due mostly to injuries to my ankle and wrist which have made it hard for me to get around and forget about execrising.
This constant weight gain is making/keeping me so depressed and frustrated. I have to find my way to focus, work/lfe balance and determination.
