it all started with getting caught wolfing down a cup of yogurt at 11pm in the hall in front of my locker at work. i felt ashamed. but i was hungry.

one look in the mirror was enough. one look from Mom and it set the ball rolling. 2 months now and down 16 lbs. want to lose 17 lbs by this sunday and be down 30 lbs by november.

i’ve decided that i want to die (when it’s my time) in good shape. i want to fit into my old jeans and wear nice blouses.

i’ve been fit my whole life but it all went to hell once i hit 50…plus the thyroid cancer and menopause kind of threw a monkey wrench at my health. that and pure laziness, stress eating, and fatigue.

fat, overweight, chunky, husky, plump…. fixable problems. eating well, actually consuming the appropriate serving, and movement- whether it be walking or exercises – aerobic/weight training is necessary to feel better, sleep better and therefore, help with weight-loss.

i just have to do it.

  1. You said the magic word. Menopause. That b—h will mess with your SOUL.

    I hope you win.

    She deserves some humiliation.


  2. I’m in the same boat. It’s so hard to climb out of the hole of fatigue from lack of exercise, and overweight. It makes it so hard to get back on track, and yet it’s the only way to fix the fatigue. Congrats on your progress, I hope you continue to do well!
