Still here...more like lurking than always being present

I'm still here. I have this huge issue of being consistent in recording food. Sometimes I do it well when I'm at work but then "fall off the wagon" for recording it when I get home. I tire of it quite easily and I know that's not good.
In any case, I'm still trying. I'm now down 43.5 pounds. It's not a lot and I have so much more to go but it's down and I'm trying to be positive about it. I did it, too, without really exercising - just watching what I eat and cutting back. Oh and actually, eating more - that is trying to eat breakfast and lunch instead of skipping, which I did for over 20 years. So I've lost inches too but boy...where I had solid fat before, now I have....well, I don't even know how best to describe it. Talk about flabby now. Whew!
So I'm looking to join Planet Fitness this week. It's pretty cheap and I need to really get some exercise. The hotter it is outside, the worse I feel and don't want to do anything so at least I know in the gym, it will be air-conditioned. I just have to make a plan to go every day. So here's hoping I can get motivated and stick to it.
I hope to be down to 50 before I go to Europe with my mom in September. Our first trip overseas - an European Cruise. I can't wait and it would be really better for me to have some more weight lost and so I can walk the cities we're visiting.
In my prior blog I mentioned the numbness in my feet. After numerous trips to specialists and neurologist, nerve testing and all that...they believe that the neuropathy in my feet is caused by diabetes, even though my A1C is now 6.4. Likely it will never go away, so it's difficult to get around sometimes when your feet are numb all the time - every day - all year long. I've been this way over a year now and it can be very frustrating.
In any case, here's to a new day....
