It's my last rediscovering post :) It's been good for me to put things down on paper the computer screen. At the end of this process, I am confident I will be a happier, healthier & more wonderful me. Speaking of healthier - that's the last subject of my rediscovering process. Most of my life I was thin & never had to worry about my weight. Ever. I could eat all the hamburgers I wanted & it didn't affect my weight. I'll spare you all the details, but in the course of my 1st year of marriage, I gained 100 lbs. Yes, I said in one year. It ruined my life for many years. And then I finally decided to do something about it. I exercised religiously(Pilates, walking, TeaBo, joined a gym) for a handful of years & still couldn't lose a single pound. What was up??!! It was very disheartening & I finally gave up. Then I hit a low point in my life. A very low point. And I knew deep down there was more to life than being sad about my weight all the time. At that time, I had been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I was told it would make it all the more of a challenge to lose weight. I tried anyway. Dr. Oz had just put out his book You on a Diet and it changed my life. I devoured the book (no, not literally) & over the course of a year I learned how to eat the right way. I lost 75 lbs. & have kept it off for 2 years now. That book changed my life. But it takes commitment & sometimes I fall off the healthy food path. In rediscovering who I am & who I want to be, I'm making small changes to get back on the right path. My family is very supportive & we all do this healthy thing together. However, I always have room for improvement & I don't exercise enough. Hardly at all really. So I need to get my rear in gear. I know some people hate exercising but I don't really mind it. I just need to find the motivation to do it. Maybe putting it out there for the world to read will make me more accountable. I hope so anyway.
