I'm Serious!

Here I go again! Starting another new year in the same old leaky boat as the previous uncountable New Year's. I have approximately 60 pounds to shed...not as many as some people but certainly enough to make me uncomfortable and unhealthy. I was doing well this past summer and was down almost 20 pounds but I find that I am easily distracted by life's stresses. My good habits,so precarious and fragile,get bull-dozed by very deeply ingrained old,destructive habits of emotional survival. I medicate ...
Here I go again! Starting another new year in the same old leaky boat as the previous uncountable New Year's. I have approximately 60 pounds to shed...not as many as some people but certainly enough to make me uncomfortable and unhealthy. I was doing well this past summer and was down almost 20 pounds but I find that I am easily distracted by life's stresses. My good habits,so precarious and fragile,get bull-dozed by very deeply ingrained old,destructive habits of emotional survival. I medicate myself with large amounts unhealthy food. And I've done this for a large part of my life. It's so easy to get lazy and gain the weight right back. Trying to break the repetitive cycle is the hardest project I have ever undertaken. I have to focus on one day at a time from now on,like an alcoholic.
Here goes something.....taking my best shot at it. :)
I cannot believe how well I am doing...June 2011...well...yes I can.I've worked hard but I'm worth working hard for.
It is now two years later. I will NOT be wasting any more time on this. I WILL prevail.March 2013.

Hi again. I wonder if you had a minute to read my blog. I had to go to the eye Dr with the second cataract. I was seeing flashes of light and also black spaces. The head ache was really bad.
The Dr saw me on Tuesday and diagnosed IRITIS the IRIS OF the is massively inflamed. Solution is hourly doses of prednisone for three days every hour I am awake. Then every 2 hours for three days and back to DR.
It can make the eye permanently blind, so it is scary right now,
HUGS Pat in Maine. He did say not too much computer and no exercise except short walks when there is NO wind, I still wear the dark glasses.
Steroids make me hungry and that is why they make people gain weight. I would rather gain weight than lose my sight. HUGS to both of you.

Pat in Augusta. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
