So I met with the Dr. last week. He put me on a 1,000 calorie a day diet and I am exercising 6 days a week right now just working my way up to 30-45 minutes a day. I even roller skated last week and Madyson's birthday party - thought I might die afterwards - I am definately older than I used to be but it was such fun exercise, I think we should do that more often. I did cheat a little over the weekend but today - back to the grind. IT's still too early to see any results of course although I am feeling very motivated and also feeling like I am a little more energy from day to day.
Meeting with the Dr. really hurt my pride. My weight falls in the "morbidly obese" category - not ever something a person wants to hear. But, for me, it just motivated me to change. Thank you so much for all of the support and encouragement in this. Deana I would love to walk with you anytime! Until it gets hot that is - then - I am not doing the outside thing!!! I am a wus!
