I woke up two weeks ago to discover that I had turned 50!!  I woke up that morning at one of my favorite places, Lake Winnepesaukee, NH, on an island.  The sun was shining and there was a breeze blowing and I was surrounded by my favorite people.  However, I also woke up 50 and FAT!!! I’ve been promising myself that I would buckle down and lose weight someday.  I decided that someday was July 29th, 2 days after my birthday.  That’s the day I joined Weight Watchers and started this endeavor.

I’m an insurance professional selling to businesses.  Yes, there’s much stress with that.  I’m divorced and that had it’s own set of stress.  I have a wonderful man in my life and the five years we’ve been together have been good and stressful as well.  He’s a realtor and plays in a band.  Both don’t pay particularly well these days.  Stress?  You betcha.

Lastly, I have Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Was diagnosed 12 years ago. I’m pretty good now and have a strict regimen down for my medications and vitamins.  I know that losing the weight will help me feel better by taking the added pressure of my weight off my joints.

Join me on my journey.

    • Bridgette – I actually got up and skied from 8:15 to 12:15 with a 30 minute break. It was great. Walked the dog. Fitbit says I’m at 8500 steps already. So that’s what I’m doing. Do something. Anything. 5 minutes only.

  2. B-
    What are you doing? Ok, false brain tumor? WTF? Sounds like it gives you brain fog. You are taking the 2yr old, your daughter sbf your ex on vaca
    and you are trying to obtain grandparents rights for your other grandchild. You got a lot going on. Oh man. No wonder you’ve disappeared.

    In box – email me at leighp727@live.Com.

    No pressure. If you want.

    • In reading your blog earlier this morning I realized that we share alot, although I’ve not yet had any joints replaced. I need a new knee. Someday. As long as Synvisc keeps working I’m going to keep putting it off. Thanks – look forward to sharing out blogs.
