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.
