Moving On

I have not been good about blogging or journaling before, but I am going to give it another try. I can make myself create a new habit if I want to. I will be committed. I am feeling good today. I woke up WAY too early for a Saturday, but maybe that will give me time to just be. Happy Saturday!

Well, I didn't want to do anything today, but I made myself get up and exercise and I feel so much better and ready to work! I have already gotten so much accomplished. Back to it!

I took a nap after lunch and then got up and did 15 minutes of latin dance fitness. Feeling good, I think I will tackle another job!

New Journey - The New Real Me

Well, I have started a new journey. Life has changed in so many ways in the past 6 months. We moved to another state, Lee and I both took new jobs, we left our oldest to finish high school, just to name a few.

I have been able to seek medical help with my asthma and sleep apnea, which have GREATLY improved life for me. I have also decided to proceed with gastric bypass surgery at the end of the summer. This is not a decision I took lightly and have prayed and thought a lot about it. It seems to me that the benefits far outweigh the risk. I have so many health concerns and this is by no means the easy way out. I thought that at one time, however I have been educated on the real deal for weight loss surgery. This is going to be a hard journey, but worth it in the long run. Baby steps. I will take MANY, but eventually I will come out on the other side walking proudly.

My first goal is to lose 15 pounds before I go back to the nutritionist and fitness specialist at the end of this month. I want to break the 300 mark.

Met some great people at the support group last night. I will try to make all of them. It was a great eye-opening experience.
