This weekend has definitely been one of those crossroads that life brings. Friday, my father-in-law was rushed to the hospital with chest pains. We don’t know if it was an actually heart attack, but his heart has definitely been beating irregularly. It is hard to see him so fragile because he is usually such an able man.
On the same day, I received my Zumba workout DVDs that I bought from an infomercial. My husband definitely encouraged that as both of us need to lose some weight. I got on the scale yesterday morning, and I am ashamed to admit how high my weight was. It was almost 15 pounds more than I thought.
I haven’t really dieted or exercised in ages, and it is not a good thought that I am heading straight for a hospital if I don’t change my behavior. I know that not all of you are interested in my personal struggles, but I am putting it out here so that I have a reminder to stay accountable. I honestly need to lose about 100 pounds, and that isn’t easy.
If any of you have had successes in loosing weight, please post your encouragement and methods. For now, I plan to cut out sugar and processed food as much as possible. I plan to exercise as much as I can. I look forward to hearing how you all have succeeded too.
