Keep Trying

I want to encourage all of you to keep trying. I have come to realize that I should have done this a long time ago! I tried many times but always gave up before I accomplished my ultimate goal. The result was always that the weight came back. This time I don't want that to happen. All the new research shows that excess weight has so many effects on every aspect of our lives. It is time to swallow our pride and do whatever we can to be healthy. Recently I heard that dementia is a side effect of diabetics. I watched my father's health deteriorate before my eyes. I always chalked it up to a genetic connection to Alzheimer's disease. Now I wonder if it was from the up and down levels of his blood sugar. I guess I will never know but I do not want to take a chance with my own health. I want to be around for a long time and I want all of you here with me!

A New Month

Here we are at April 1st. I am prepared to continue on my journey. I got a new workout at the gym yesterday so I can start fresh in this new month. I did lose another 3 lbs in the last 2 weeks!! 34 and counting!! I also had my body fat remeasured and I am at 37% which is a loss of 9% since last summer. We had a great discussion at my Lose It For Life bible study last night. I really appreciate the support of those friends!
