At 215 pounds I landed in Mexico City. Our third country in three years. I had a lot of stress and then I started getting sick. I was sick for the first seven months here, off and on. I will spare you the details but it was not an enjoyable experience. The boys and I went home (CA and NV) for a month to visit family and try to get healthy. I just got a different kind of sick but it was a nice break. Around this time I also started Weight Watchers Online. I had a jump start on my weight loss from being sick and I wanted to keep it up. I exercise sporadically, I really wish I could find a routine and also get that "high" that everyone talks about. But I have lost 42 pounds in just about a year. I'm over half way to my goal. Now, if the stress would go away and my husband would get me a nanny... Just kidding or dreaming, maybe. My eating has changed, I feel more in control and keeping track of what I put in my mouth has helped so much! Changing my eating has made a huge difference. I just need to make the commitment to an exercise routine then I can watch the rest of these pounds melt off. I feel so much better, I have more energy. My blood pressure has not gone down though. That could be genetics and might be something I deal with forever.
Pray for me. God and my wonderful husband have gotten me this far. There is no way I could've done it on my own.
