My Weight Loss Progress

Thursday, May 5, 2011


I quit! I quit exercising, watching my intake, doing much of anything. I basically became a lump on the chair, for most of the winter.

and now I am paying the price. I am just as tired, hurt just as much, if not more, am close to that big 200 on the scale, and sick of myself.

Today I walked to the grocery, less than a mile round-trip, and I was aching by the time I got home. I get short of breath and my heart pounding with a little exertion but I think I have a respiratory infection. My chest feels all clogged. Down deep, down below the throat it feels yucky.

I guess I need to see a doctor--and then start seeing exercise as a medical necessity.  That's what got me out the door to the grocery; I needed to pick up a prescription and some stamps.  Too bad I can't pay for a gym membership with my Health Savings Account. 

When I got there, the Rx wasn't ready, so I get to go again tomorrow.  Another excuse to walk.  Maybe I'll go find a doctor too and see what I can do about this icky cloggy feeling.

  1. I hate that cloggy feeling -- it's what landed me on the couch most of the winter. Ugh.
