Hanging In There.
Thursday, June 10, 2010
I have been on my weight/health "journey" for over a year now - and while I have lost a great deal of weight - I still have a lot more to lose. I HAVE changed my lifestyle,
I HAVE reduced my blood pressre, cholesterol and cut out my risk of Diabetes. I also look & feel better than I have in more than 10 years. And I am stronger emotionally & physically because of my weight training and exercise regeim (5-6 days per week!!) Ironically - I am healthier now than I have ever been - my endurance amazes me - my fitness level is off the charts!!!
But.....I now find I must have some major surgery - I feel a bit angry with my body - why now? Why not when I was over 260 lbs? Will I be able to get back on the fitness train after I recover or will I give up as I have done so many times before? I am upset, angry and just blah. I will continue to exercise until my surgery date - and I guess the chips will fall where thay may.
