Introduction!

Posted in health, herniated disc, weight at 4:22 pm by way2much

Today is July 18, 2006.

Feel free to read my history that explains how this blog came into being.

In a nutshell, I am overweight and I do not feel healthy. I need to do something about this. 

The only thing that helps is Weight Watchers.  I did wonderfully on the program until I herniated my discs and became slightly depressed. I turned to food for comfort. I know the right foods I should eat but the bad ones are just so tempting.

So if you would like, join me on my struggles to lose the weight and find an exercise program that will work.

I will try to post everyday. This will be my online journal of foods I eat and activities I participate in.

********************************************************

Weight: 180 lbs. exactly with jean shorts and cotton shirt.

Exercise: Stretches learned from physical therapist –

  • walk dog – not far – less than 1/10 mile

    MORE LIKE AN UPDATE INSTEAD OF A COMMENT.

    I WENT BOWLING TODAY WITH MY DAUGHTER, SISTER-IN-LAW AND TWO NIECES. I HOPE I DID NOT DAMAGE MY BACK TOO MUCH. AFTERWARD WE STOPPED AT THE DINER FOR LUNCH/DINNER. HERE IS WHERE I MADE A MISTAKE – I ORDERED A CHICKEN GYRO WRAP. IT CAME WITH FRENCH FRIES. I ATE ALL BUT 5 FRIES. MY MEAL CAME WITH SOUP, DESSERT AND COFFEE. I GAVE MY CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP TO MY NIECE, I DRANK MY COFFEE BLACK AND ATE ONLY HALF OF THE STRAWBERRY JELL-O. (MY DAUGHTER HAD THE REST.)

    I AM SO FULL – I FEEL SICK.
