I had an experience that "finally" made me open my eyes and come to the realization that I have to lose this weight and........ NOW
My son (12 yrs.) and I left my DS at his office and we drove over to our rental house to do some work. My DH was to follow us over in a few.
We got to the house, I parked on the lawn because there was a big dumpster in the driveway. I was starting to unload my car of all the necessary cleaning supplies and what have you and then I went to the back seat door and was starting to get stuff out when my foot dropped down into a hole and wouldn't you know it, I fell backwards right onto a bush!
Ya it sounds comical, but I was absolutely MORTIFIED AND HUMILIATED. And, I couldn't get up. To think at age 52 I can't take care of myself because I'm too fat. Oh My Gosh. Hello???
Between my weight/obesity and my arthritic/bone spurred right knee, I couldn't get onto the knee to get myself up. And, believe you me, I thought and thought about what my son could bring from the house to help me, but to no avail.
So, there I lay.
Then it started to rain. Ya' ya, the story gets more amusing as it goes on!!!
I got the cell phone, called my DH and said, "Could you hurry over. I have fallen and I can't get up."
He thought that I was joking.
That was just a couple of days ago, and I have lost 12 pounds so far.
As God as my witness, I WILL GET THIS WEIGHT OFF........NOW!
Being determined is the decision todo whatever you need to do in order to have what you say you want to have!
My mini goal is to take off 50 lbs. by August
For every 10 lbs.
