Wow, look at the date of that last post! Almost exactly one year ago. I guess its really time to get myself under control. I am doing another challenge at the Sisterhood. Its funny how I keep going back to them. They are truly inspiring so I guess that is why. I am on my own this time...no teams, so, we will see what happens. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I have probably said that before, but somehow, this time I really feel like I have to do this or I will end up like most of my family with all the diseases that they have. Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and even some others that are worse. I am really scared of the diabetes and I know I am headed that way. So far, I have dodged those bullets, but my physical problems are getting to be a real pain. Literally, they are getting very painful and I know that I can feel better if I get the weight off and get healthy. Arthritis, ruptured discs, vertigo, and pinched nerves in my hip and back - all of those can improve with weight loss. Except for the vertigo, but I am going to PT for that and who knows...maybe my brain is getting fat too and that is causing the vertigo. I am going to the doctor this month for my annual and get all the blood work and hope and pray that it still is good. I promise to get that colonoscopy this year. I have put it off long enough.
So, this is the year for improvements, and here is to actually doing what I am setting out to do this time.
