I am 58, overweight again, and trying to get healthy. I am blogging about weight loss and everyday issues for women. My blog will include ramblings about the daily life of a mother, grandmother, wife and friend. I would love to have you come along for the ride!
Day 20, Monday: Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now.
I know everyone has their struggles, but my biggest struggle at the moment is my weight. I need to lose about 30 pounds to get to a weight that is really healthy for me. I have gotten to my ideal weight in the past and not maintained it for very long. When I was younger I didn't have any weight struggles at all. In the last several years I can't seem to stay at a healthy weight.
I have gotten past the vanity point of wanting to have the perfect body. I just want to have a healthy body so that I can enjoy life and be able to enjoy being active with my family.
I see people my age and older that are getting so they can barely move around. I want to be able to do things for a long time to come. I have spent hours working in my yard, moving dirt and mulch and I am so happy to say that I can still handle doing that. We visited with a friend the other day and her mother lives with her. Her mother is going to be 90 on her next birthday and she looks more like 70. She has always been active and she continues to do many things. I want to be like that!
