2 weeks & I weigh 15 1/2 less!

Today is two weeks since I have started my journey towards a new, healthier life. I have been thinking lately about what exactly I would like from this journey. I definately do not want to look like an anorexic model nor am I trying to look like some beautiful porn star (like that is possible without lots of ps haha)

I want to lose enough weight to be considered 'HEALTHY". Enough to slow or stop the threat of diabetes and its complications. Perhaps maybe drop my blood pressure meds,?? I don't know if the last one is possible because my doctors says weight is not the only contribution to high BP, hereditary is also.

I am going to mark this journey at one week/10 pound intervals. I need to come up with some sort of reward system at each 10 lbs. Something NON-food. Maybe a fish bowl with little treats, clothing, shoes, etc.

I have been walking 2x a day now for the last week, I don't think it will be possible to keep that up when I go back to work so I will have to work out another schedule.

I am soooo happy with my life today. THANK YOU GOD!

  1. Yeah! You are doing soooooo well!

    I am with you, I would like to drop the BP meds, but I know mine is very much hereditary. Still, I should be able to reduce the dosage for sure.

    I am feeling the same gratitude. What a relief.
