How could I gain so much in such a short time? Anyway, I refuse to buy an all-new plus-sized wardrobe, so it is time to just draw a line in the sand.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Impatience.

honest girl 06-09-2009 07:03 PM

introduce yourself
 
Hi 3FC community,

Wanted to introduce myself with the following:

screen name - honest girl - I chose this name because I'm trying to be more honest with myself about EVERYTHING!

age range - 54 - I really freaked out when I turned 54 this year. I don't know why. Normally birthdays aren't a big deal, however this year was different. I've been going through wrinkle cream by the barrel full.

family life - I have been partnered with the love of my life - a woman - for 15 years now. We are legally married in one of the five (?) states that allow same sex marriage. This year our state income tax refund came in both of our names because we filed jointly. Try explaining that to the credit union when you take the check in! Good thing I was only depositing it (with my partner's endorsement of course).

fitness/health goals - Wow - what a topic! Mostly I just want to grow old as gracefully and as healthy as possible. My greatest fear is being confined to a wheel chair because of my weight when I'm old. Also, I can't wait to save money and only buy one airline seat when I travel.


trigger to motivate me to lose weight - My health. When I was younger (under 45) I did okay physically in spite of my excess weight. However in the least nine years many health problems have manifested themselves.

three areas of improvement - Right now I have two main areas that are tripping me up. The first is making sure I exercise on a consistent basis. The second is "environmental control" - which is to make sure that the right foods are in the cupboard and the WRONG ones aren't. If it's not there - I can't eat it.

That's it for now. Thanks to everyone who posts. It encourages me greatly.
