This is one of the views I see on my morning walks and yes, it might inspire many of you to get out there and walk every day, but actually it's not the scene that does it for me, it's taking the pictures and sharing them on Facebook that is my motivation!
The past 5 months have been the start of a new phase of my life, still in the MIDDLE of course, but a healthier middle age. I can also report that one of the things that increases as we grow older is our hindsight and I'm determined to convince some of you younger gals to take my advice and don't wait until you're in your 60's to start taking better care of yourselves!! I don't care if you're 40, 50 or 60....do SOMETHING TODAY that will be a step towards better health. Let me know if you need some details on what I've done and I'll be happy to tell you!
It's been quite a journey (that's not over yet) of losing weight, trying to find the right pair of shoes, finding out I have diabetes--another reason I'm encouraging you to do something now, losing more weight, taking pictures of myself to document my weightloss, but still feeling like a fat girl, but now I'm an OLD fat girl! LOL See my previous blog about not being cute anymore. By the way, once I've lost a total of 50 lbs. (13 more to go) I might show before and after pictures! :) No promises though!
Basically, I'm your Fairy of the Future and if you care to listen, I can help you avoid some of the pitfalls of aging. It's MUCH easier to make a few changes now instead of waiting 5, 10 or 20 years when it will take a lot more effort to get the same result!
Have you had your own "awakening"? What did it for you?
