Weight Loss

Everyone knows that it's hard to get motivated to lose weight.  I have been there, done that!! This time though I feel different about it.  This time it's ALL ABOUT ME!  I decided that I'm not going to lose weight for anybody else but me!

I have tried to lose 40lbs BECAUSE my husband wants me to "look better", BECAUSE I hate to look in the mirror, BECAUSE my in-laws keep telling me how FAT I look, BECAUSE, BECAUSE, BECAUSE.

Well I decided that I was going to do this for ME this time.

My mom was diagnosed with Colitis and as a result of her medicine she was also diagnosed with diabetes.
I am on a thyroid medicine; I went to a specialist last year because I was diagnosed with having a Thyroid goiter.  I'm curious and wanted to see what my doctor was talking about.  So I called upon the internet and GOOGLE to see what this was all about. To my SURPRISE.....I about fell off my chair! OMG how ugly is that!!  Well when I saw this specialist they go through all of the routine questions. Do you have any type of blah, blah, blah...

She asked me if there was a history of diabetes and I told her my mom was recently diagnosed with having diabetes but it was because of the medication she was on, well that didn't stop her from telling me that I needed to lose weight because I was not prone to get diabetes because of my mom having it.  I was a bit confused and told her even if it was due to the medication she was on?  She said yes..

Well I have to go back to see her next month and I want her to see that I have made an improvement with my weight.  There have been a lot of things that happened that I won't get into right now that prevented me from keeping on track with my diet and exercise but I am moving forward and will keep updating my progress.

Until then have a great day, by the way ITS SNOWING!!  WWWAAAAA!!
