New Start

May 23, 2014

I have my physical in a month and it won't be pretty if I don't get my act together. So, looking into ways to lose the weight and to increase the exercise....comes down to stop eating so much! DH was told today he will have to follow a low fat diet, so that means I will as well. I also want to cut back on my carbs. I am going to set my trackers up to track protein and carbs. I am sick of looking the way I do. I am sick of being the fat one in the pictures and not looking the way that my mind thinks I look.
Spark friends, I am asking for your help in my journey this time. I need to commit to one way of eating and one way of living. The clock starts now, tonight, for the rest of my life.

Thanks for the picnic basket. It is beautiful weather for a picnic. Maybe I can talk the Bible class into eating outside at noon tomorrow for our study. Yea, right! emoticon

My FIL was diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer today. My husband has been up there since Sun. They thought his pain was because he needed a hip replacement. He fell Sat. night. Today they found a broken pelvis and a tumor in his thigh. They haven't met with the oncologist yet, but as of now they're saying radiation to control the pain. Thanks for the support. I appreciate it.
