Bits and Pieces but not the entire story.
In December, I made the incredible decision to quit smoking. I had smoked for 18 years. I know, I know, what the flippity doo da was I thinking? Anyway, I quit with the assistance of taking Chantix for one month. I did try and quit during the time of great food and drink; However, it was the best time. Simply because all of my family was here for Christmas and well...I want to live longer, healthier, and I wanted to start putting me and my needs at the top of the chain. So, I did. When I went to my doctor in January I had only gained 5 pounds. I thought, "wow" not so bad. But 3 weeks ago I decided to join a fitness center because I felt I was gaining more weight. I did not know how much...I just simply felt it. Ummmmmmmm, 30 extra/more pounds! So, now I have a personal trainer, a house cleaner twice a month, and I am losing inches and pounds. I have had two sessions with trainer (roughly one week) and I have lost 11 inches and 5.7 pounds. This is great because I am living life, working, and doing what I love with creating art. So, there is no-one cooking my meals and portioning them. I am doing this on my own with a trainer for 30 minutes a week to help with workout routines for the following week. THE HARD WORK is up to me. I feel pretty good. I will share about this journey as I feel comfortable. But right now, I am super proud of myself.
