Blogging Break

Ok I hit the wrong button. I’m taking a blogging break. My dad died;( I could write about stress eating and restaurant food. I’ve done all to much of that in the last 2 weeks but I won’t. I just want to get back to my routine. Now I’m in the people making me eat phase. I will not gain the weight back like I did after my mom died. My dad was 86 and I’m blessed to have him as long as I did. Rest in peace dad. I love you always .


43.5 is not the number of pounds I’ve lost or need to lose. Its my age. As of today I’m 43.5 years old. Some times it’s hard to realize I’m that old. Then I think that isn’t old and 44 sounds old. I have decided age is just a number. I don’t act 43.5 or feel 43.5. People alway guess I’m in my 30’s. I will say losing weight this time around seems so much harder. This is why this is it! I’m going to lose it and keep it off. This time it’s not to look cute. I like to think I already am;) This time it’s for my health! Fat to fit in 40’s !!! Are there any other fabulous and fit women in their 40’s blogging? Anybody else in the 40’s who want to get fit and not just sit and complain about it? Let me know!

43.5 and trying to be fit!

Oprah’s final show great for my weight loss!

I watched Oprah’s first show and her last. I have pretty much been a fan of Oprah just not her audience. All those shreeking women were too much for me. This past season was one of her best. I like it when she has stars on and reunion show’s. I have followed her through her diet phase and it seems we have the same issues lose it but can’t keep it off. Oprah’s last message may mean different things to many people. What I got out of it was personal responsibility and get out of your own way. I watched the clip of her and Iyanla Vanzant. I was floored by watching Iyanla make it seem like it was Oprah’s fault that she didn’t know Oprah liked her. Like it was Oprah’s duty to tell her she was good. I’m like Oprah. I might not always tell you in words but I tell you in action and actions speak louder than words. It made me think of my journey. I’ve pretty much kept my weight loss journey to myself. I haven’t told my friends I’m blogging yet. I think I will ,but now I’m not looking for a lot of advice or trying to give a lot. I’m looking for  sounding ground as I work my way through it. I’m observing others and getting ideas. I help when I can and maybe my thoughts may help someone.  Hopefully I’m learning how to get out of my way this time. I usually let my anxieties and egos get in the way. I can do this faster! There must be something that works better than this. I know I tell my patients all they have to do is eat less and exercise more but secretly I think there is something else. This time I’ not going to block my blessings. I’m going to continue this journey, learn from it and pass it on. My platform has always been about health just not about my own. Now its my turn!
