Thank you to Kayla for my buttons of  The Eclectic Element!

Hi Everyone!  This is going to be my Weight Be Gone Thursday for me.  If you’d like to follow me in my journey you are welcome.  You see a week ago this Friday I had a rude awakening to the reality of life in that I’m not getting any younger, and if I still wanted to lead a fun, and  happy life I had to make some serious changes.

I have been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis.  I had back surgery back in 2006, and ever since then my back has been a pain in my… and I have to get shots in my back about every two to three months to be a normal person.  Due to the change of health insurance mine said I could not have my shot for an extra month, and I was walking around… I take that back dragging around this dead weight as best as I could with my walker.  Now I won’t get into it, but I had my shot last Friday and the doctor, my husband and I sat down, and had a long talk.  The doctor stated everything I had wrong, and what we could do for it.  I had options, but the options I took maybe you wouldn’t have, but I did.  Now it’s to a point who do I want to be.

FAT ME
SKINNY ME

You see I have a wonderful husband and four wonderful children, and nine beautiful grandchildren that all love me, and on top of all that I have many wonderful relative and friends who also love me and the doctor said there’s no more choice to go on a diet to look nice, but it’s now a diet to live. Okay, blunt and to the point.  Just the way I like it.  So, I’m on a very long journey to lose weight, and as of today I weigh 260 lbs. Blood Pressure is 171/72, with a 66 pulse, which I’ve already lost 21 lbs. over the months, and I’ve been holding here for some reason, and I have to break the ice. I’ve been keeping a diary of my weight/blood pressure for a month now.  You see, I have to many things I have to do before I go anywhere for good like watching my grandchildren get married or become nurses or doctors or race car drivers (never mind it’s a long story lol), so we’re going to… “follow the yellow brick road as they say because I’m off to see the wizard and ask him for a good body & trade in this broken down one!

This is only the beginning.  My darling daughter bought me these last Christmas and now I can finally use them thanks to my wonderful doctor and the shots.  Granted I’m still on pain killers, but it’ll help me get through my exercising… it’s a whatever works now.  I’ve been doing a few things at home, and going to the health club.  I have created one video & I’m not sure I want to play it for you, but here it goes anyway.  Next Thursday I will update you on my progress.

Thanking you for stopping by, and listening. I do have a button to the left if you’d like it so you can come back next Thursday. If you’d like to join me in my journey – make a spreadsheet like me and sign my linky & we’ll follow this yellow brick road to the wizard and ask him for a new body!
