My body is driving me crazy!! It’s never been this hard for me to take off some weight before. I’m nearly three weeks in, and I’ve only lost eight pounds. Eight freaking pounds! Being 63 years old and trying to take weight off is almost torturous. Argh!! So frustrating.
Here’s my current MO: I gain a bit of weight two days in a row, then I lose enough on the third day to put me at a new lower weight. Then it’s gain, gain, lose again and again and again.
There I needed to vent that. Now let me say how my life has improved in those same few weeks. My blood pressure is down to normal numbers. My blood sugar levels are so much better. I’m not exhausted after climbing a set of stairs. I have so much more energy. I’m not so depressed. And I just plain feel better. So…forget you scale! I am winning this battle ever so slowly, but surely.
This morning when I weighed myself, I was bummed! But after take my other stats, taking my daily walk, eating foods that actually fuel my body, and thinking and praying about it, I feel renewed.
I can do this. I can be healthier. And if I lose pounds along the way, that’s a wonderful side effect. My focus has to be my health and wellness, not just my weight.
I want to be able to really enjoy walking around Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studio Parc is two years. And maybe even spend a couple days touring Paris. This is my goal. This is my journey. I’m claiming it, and I’m sending it out into the universe.
Meet me at the Kingdom!

I hope it is losing fat, gaining muscle. Keep the faith.
Thank you for the encouragement, Kirk. It’s a long, slow climb, but it’s worth it to feel so much better.
Good job! Keep it up. You are inspiring me.
Thank you, Cousin! It’s quite frustrating this time, but even slow progress is progress.
If it’s bumming you out, forget weighing yourself every day! Weekly sounds like to be a happier experience. 💕
