I went to the doctor Tuesday and she prescribed me some medicine that literally knocks me out whenever I take it. So I try to take it only when I need it.
You would think that I would feel rested and rejuvenated but I feel more exhausted and more drained each day.
I guess that is the problem with real life, things happen and all the plans you have are put on hold. Normally, I would become discouraged and give up on losing the weight but I am going to continue and hope that my persistence pays off.
Writing this blog for sure is a good motivator. I hope that someone out there can relate to what I am going through!
I haven't gone through and spoke much about just how much weight I would like to loose and all that. So I am going to focus on that now. I am not going to admit how much I weigh now because even I am embarrassed by the number but I would love to lose between 30 to 40 pounds. My problem area is my stomach, it is the one area I gained all my weight when I was pregnant and the one area I have been unsuccessful with when exercising.
I am glad that I am starting this as spring approaches because I will be spending more time outdoors as I take trips to the park with my kids and begin my normal walks around town. I enjoy walking around with my kids and visiting the different parks, playing games and just enjoying the fresh air. I also love going to the park near my apartment because it has a walking track as well as a bike path.
Until next week...
