I have begun a journey that will prove to be the biggest
challenge of my life. I am a 63 year old grandmother who has
dealt with being overweight most of my adult life. Along with the
weight comes high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
My doctor suggested the lap band surgery as a solution.
Wow, that was a wake -up call for me.
I have found that it’s always a good thing to keep a sense of humor in everything I set out to do. This is particularly true if its something that is repetitious and difficult like working out in a gym. My buddy and I decided to join a local gym to improve our weight loss and build up our muscles.Jo's Journal
Two of my favorite television programs are aired the same night in the same time slot. I generally switch channels back and forth, but this week The Biggest Losers caught my attention and for two hours I was glued to the television. The program was about walking a 5K event which I am training to do through Weight Watchers. I was so moved by this program and so inspired by the unbelievable determination of each of the contenders; it was as though I was seeing this program for the first time.Jo's Journal
