OK, so I said before that I was done being overweight...but a lot has happened since then. This could be somewhat apparent in my lack of blog post creation. And, that was seven weeks ago.
I've been off the wagon dealing with the multiple curve balls Mr. Murphy (as in Murphy's Law) has been throwing at us. No area of our lives have remained untouched by random strange and/or unsettling occurrences other than DaHubby's and the Vikings' health.
I, on the other hand, have been a mess. Suffice it to say that juggling chainsaws would have been easier on me. DaHub's work. DaHub's school. Financial worries. A health issue roller coaster including a false alarm pregnancy, then possible early menopause, then several blood tests and screenings, to a probable diagnosis of insulin dependence. In the midst of that, my yearly "girl exam" came due. I was such a mess at my last appointment that my primary doc suggested anti-anxiety meds which were supposedly safe with my ADD meds.
As these last few weeks have gone by, it's occurred to me that every. single. problem. I deal with physically has to do with my weight. Sleep problems. Back pain. Plantar fasciitis. Digestion issues. Girl problems. And, several other seemingly random things. All could be cured by dropping 70 pounds. Oddly enough, that's a 8 lb/year gain since I got married. *sigh* It doesn't sound like a lot but it has added up to daily pain that I don't need to have.
Enough is enough.
So, I'm back on the wagon...again. And, I've lost 3 pounds in the week since my last doctor's appointment. Three down; 67 to go!
