Yes, I have lost 'a lot of weight' - 40 pounds to be exact - but I had it to lose! It took me almost 10 months to lose it and I'm not sure what all the fuss is about.
Here's the outline:
- After years of suffering, was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. One of the meds has a side-effect known as taste perversion. It turns your taste buds into a waste land. Unfortunately (or fortunately, I guess) it works on french fries, Dr Pepper, candy bars, etc. Cravings just aren't what they used to be!
- About a year ago, Don and I moved to town. There are sidewalks and sub-divisions and quiet neighborhoods to walk through. Realizing how much better I feel if I can stretch these rebellious muscles of mine, we started walking every day. Walking anywhere from .5 to 1.5 miles per day is going to show in the weight department.
- In July of 2016, I had some extensive dental work done. The procedure is still not complete. It makes it difficult to eat certain foods. To be honest, it's not worth it. So at work when the chips and snacks are out (even if they did taste as good as they should!) I will pass.
- Now that I've lost 40 pounds I'm completely motivated to make a healthy choice. I love to walk. I will drink water. I will even do yoga before bed because I ENJOY it!!
