My ultimate goal is to lose enough weight to have "normal" BMI with a little wiggle room! ( So far, 155 pounds down 5 to go)
To get off all or at least most of my medications. (So far, off 3 and 2 reduced to half doses)
To be able to continue to live a healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. (So far, every day I eat at least 7 servings of fruits and vegetables and move at least 10 miles every day)
Diet: Stay within my set calorie range, eat at least 7 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Limit my intake of crackers to a single 100 calorie serving a day. Drink at least 80 ounces of water daily.
Exercise: Minimum 75 minutes of walking or aerobics daily. 10-15 minutes strength training at least 3 day a week.
I can not imagine going back to my home town and having my husband have to introduce his "new wife" to my old friends and extended family.
I hope that when you were over the initial shock you were able to laugh at their expense. That's an enormous amount of validation and I would have to blog about it, print it and put it in my journey scrap book!
What a fantastic day that must have been for you, with of course, the exception of why you went back home in the first place.
