A dear John letter…to fat

Hey everyone, I just read the best thing on Facebook…it was a dear John letter to fat!! I thought, heck yeah let’s tell this fat to hit the road jack!! (And don’t ya come back..no more, no, more, no more!!!). Can’t remember who sings that but BIG shout out to them!! Lol!! So here is my letter…

Dear John (Fat),

It’s over!!! I’m really, really, really tired of the way you have been mistreating me for over 10 years now! I’m not sure how our relationship began…I think it was because after having my 3 child, my body went into congestive heart failure. I was scared, thought I was going to die, didn’t want to leave my husband with my three babies, all of whom I love more than life!! So at first I did really good and took care of myself, then they started putting me on all of these meds and I thought

“Hey, I can live my life, these medications are going to take care of everything”

Humph!! Not a great plan but its the one I chose, then I started eating, and eating and eating and I became depressed, discouraged and disgusted!!

Sigh***** that’s where our love affair began, we started dancing in circles..I would see you and get sad, so I would eat….then I would be sad…why? Because I ate…a terrible dance!!

Well I’m officially telling you..THE PARTY IS OVA!!! I’ve traded in those dancing shoes for some tennis shoes and I’m running…literally!! I’ve decided this relationship has got to go, all this time I thought you were comforting me and all you were doing was killing me!

So today I say goodbye John Fat, I am an incredible woman with so much potential…I can not deny myself my own love anymore..you see I realize I didn’t actually love me, just you…Not anymore, my body is a temple and from now on I will treat it as such!!

Sincerely,

J

P.S. if you don’t believe me check out my treadmill picture!! Deuces!!!

Hmmm how did I forget my diabetes?

Soo I’m really a bone head…I seriously forgot about my diabetes & taking care of it. (I know how the heck do you forget a disease like that??). How did I remember….my feet!

Since I’ve been being a good girl and working out……..well who are we kidding y’all know its from my working it the other night in those heels. πŸ™‚ but seriously I was running (ok ok jogging) on the treadmill last night & I noticed my big toe was hurting really bad & my blister still hadn’t healed from 2 weeks ago so I had to call Kaiser because it hit me…your a diabetic dummy & you have to protect your feet.

Well I went in and have blisters on both feet and she told me to rest my feet and not wear heels for 2 weeks…WHAT??? I love my heels, they make me feel thin and tall and gorgeous!!! Sigh***** oh well I will be obedient and where my old lady shoes 😦 I also have to just walk and not run when I’m working out.

Soooooooo of course there is a lesson here (thought you were going to get away without one huh). We have to walk (go slow in our lifestyle journey, this isn’t a diet or temporary) and not try to run (do things that are unhealthy) to our goals. If we lose a pound a week or maybe we hit a plateau in our workout, that’s ok because we are still moving our bodies, not eating junk and making a conscience decision to change. I would love to lose 5lbs a week, but I’m happy with the 2 I achieved this week….and I hope each of you are happy with your small or large accomplishments.

As always, 1 to 1,000 pounds we can do it!! (By the way, if you do have diabetes please make sure you are watching your blood glucose levels…when you exercise & lose weight it can affect you so be sure to stay close to your medical team.)
