It's been a long and difficult year and I'm ready for vacation. Weight-wise I'm about 40 lbs lighter than last summer and 103 lbs lighter than the year before. Since we are going to the same place we go to every year for the past 6-7 years I do expect some comments, although I still do feel uncomfortable around comments. Perhaps it's because I haven't reached my goal weight yet, which is about 30 lbs away so I still feel obese.
It's a slow process for me, which is frustating, but at least I'm heading in the right direction!
I have learned some valuable lessons this past year and I hope I remember them during vacation. The most important thing I've learned is that carbs are POISON to me! Not just white carbs, but ANY type of carbs except maybe leafy, green salads. Also, the fact that I CAN'T exercise I'm sure slows down my loss. There is very little I can do about that last part.
If you've been reading my blogs you'll know that I TRIED earlier on this year, but an MS attack, plus my brother's and husband's unwillngness to continue taking me for walks put an end to that. I'm hoping that swimming now will start up again my lazy metabolism.
Have a nice summer!
