It’s Working

Today was weigh in day and I lost 3 more pounds.  I am so happy.  I have been feeling so much better.  Several people at church yesterday said how good I looked. I didn’t know I looked bad before but it was great to hear. I wore a black outfit that I think made me look slimmer. I was just surprised to hear so many compliments and it made me feel great.

I still have at least 30 pounds to lose to get to where I am more in my zone. I would really like to lose 50 pounds. I know I am 63 years old and will probably never weigh what I did in high school.  In fact, I think that would be too much anyway. I would probably look too thin which I think makes people look sickly.

I am having to start slow on my walking because since over doing it in Italy I have got Plantar Fasciitis. This causes severe heel pain. It is worst when I have been sitting or getting up in the morning. The plantar fascia is a tough band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. I just got up one morning and my heel was killing me.  It is slowly getting better with a lot of stretching and icing.  What I decided to do is up it 1000 steps a week until I get up to 10,000 again. To think I was walking 10 miles a day before my knees finally gave out. After replacing them I started walking again. The next thing I knew I was in the hospital getting my back fused in two places and decompressed in one. I hopefully, will be released next month, since it has been a year. Anyway I put on a lot of weight and have a hard time even reaching 5000 steps a day. I started with 2000 last week which seemed to be easy. I will start with 3000 this week.

I love my new life change!
