I have decided to blog about this because guess I am feeling desperate.
I just saw a tv ad that was advertising "Lipozene". Buy one and get one free plus they will give you a free bottle of something that is suppose to increase energy (I think?) all for $29.95 plus shipping.
But I did highly consider it until I read the reviews. I needed a "kick start" and was willing to pay for it.
When reading the reviews....all said that they felt like their appetite was suppressed but they also cut calories and exercised.
BINGO!!! There it is............
Just what we all know....CALORIES IN.....CALORIES OUT
I have been on a weight roller coaster for over 50 years. My 1st remembrance of weight issues was when I was 10 years old. I can remember unkind remarks...I weighed 98# in the 3rd grade....the unkind remarks followed me all through high school and by the time I graduated high school, I weighed over 180#. I was once referred to as "Big Bertha " as I was passing by some boys standing by a pole. These remarks have scarred me for life.
My handsome husband (married at 18...met at 16) loved me for my heart.
He was shy and didn`t know how many girls liked him. We found out later as our oldest daughter had friends that their mothers went to school with him and they told us that they had crushes on him.
I had lost my 50# through TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) but since I am a caregiver (full time) to my husband , who has dementia.....I have been struggling ALOT because of stress. I know I am using that as my excuse and I am up 9# since the holidays of 2014.
A few years ago, I had lost 20# because I was going on a fabulous mini vacation to Santa Barbara and I wanted to feel and look my best.
I felt energetic and confident.
I have joined the 5% spring challenge and am excited to get these extra pounds off.
This was a 4 generation picture of me when I was within 10# of my highest weight of 205#
You see.....I have dreams that I weigh that again. In my dreams, I am only one day away from that weight. I wake up and am grateful that it is only a dream but I know it can happen...I am only one bite away..
This was taken St. Patricks Day 2015.....I have edited it as to hide my hips...that is where I carry my weight. It was taken at a very bad angle so I had to edit it.
As of this a/m...I weigh 157.4#...not a lot , you say, but enough to make me feel sluggish, no energy and losing my confidence.
I am only 5`2"...by insurance guidelines, I should weigh 105. I look absolutely horrible at 119# (I had been there when I was 25...I am now 64. My current weight goal is to be 145#.
I feel good at this weight and can maintain it easily if I keep watch of my calories and do exercize.
Before the holidays came....I was about 149# ...I sure enjoyed the holidays and ever since but it is time to get these extra pounds off.
I have no regrets about that...but it is time NOW to get down to business with
Calories in and calories out.....NOT with Lipozene.
We have a week in San Diego, coming up this June to celebrate 46 years of marriage.....once again, I want to feel WONDERFUL...energetic...and young.
To walk along the beach without feeling sluggish.
Oh, BTW....saw a recent Dr OZ episode .....a few weeks back...he said we lose fat through our breath...
