Since my last blog post I have been diagnosed with both Pre-Diabetes and Rheumatoid Disease.
I feel like its been a constant battle with fatigue and pain. I finally feel like I am in a better place as far as pain management is concerned. The Rheumatoid medication I am on is doing a very good job and I do not need any pain medications! YAY!
Its been a crazy year! Last year I was blessed with the perfect job... I really even dislike calling it a job. I still can't believe they pay me to show up and work with kids all day. I am a instructional assistant at a local elementary school. This is one of the best groups of people I have ever worked with.
This past year we also helped my mom with her health struggles. She is still getting better everyday!
Now down to business...
Sunday, July 3rd
I was home alone and miserable... I ate all day long, and nothing good either.
Monday, July 4th
I felt bloated, fat, and miserable in my own skin. I knew something had to be done... I spent the morning googling food trackers and diet plans... Not finding exactly what I was looking for I decided to give Weight Watchers another shot. I was totally put off by the cost of attending meetings and decided to try the Online Only plan.
My wonderful sister passed her old Fitbit on to me... and I am now on my way to tracking food and exercising.
I wish I could say I was excited... or that I'm "all in" Mostly, I just feel fed up with how I feel and look. Fed up with medications and diseases. Tired of feeling tired.
I don't want to be skinny, and I know I will never have a bikini body. I am okay with that.
I just want to feel better, and be able to do things. I want to be able to tell my son "yes" when he asks to go to the park instead of "not today, Mommy doesn't feel good"
So, here I go... I am 3 days in and my first official weigh in will be tomorrow. I will be weighing in every Friday from here on out.
To increase my overall health and well being by losing weight. To lose weight I will follow the Weight Watchers Online plan, exercise, drink more water everyday.
Plan of Action:
- I will track all of my meals and snacks daily
- I will walk at least 1 mile, 5 times a week
- I will track my steps and activity with my Fitbit
- I will drink 64oz of water daily
- I will weigh in and report my results every Friday.
- I will become active online with other Online Weight Watchers members
- I will report back to my blog once a week.
- I will find a accountability partner to report to weekly.
