No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I just realized I have been on Blog to Lose for almost 5 years and I'm no better off than I was before. I am starting to feel like I am heading towards my midlife and I really need to get serious about losing this weight and getting in shape. I want to live longer than the life expectancy test I did in college. At that time,I was thin - 120 pounds but due to hereditary issues my life expectancy was forecast to be 70. That's right - 70. Cancer on my mom's side and heart disease on my dad's side. On my dad's side only one person made it past 70 and on my mom's side, only my grandmother made it past 90. Most passed away in their 60's to 70's. This is my midlife moment to realize I need to change. I need to lose weight, exercise more and be happier. Finding a new job would help with that and I think it would help with my weight. I'm also considering going back to college to finish my four year degree. I didn't finish it the first time because my husband asked me to marry him and not leave for college at a long distance. I have regretted this many times over the years. Our son is almost grown so I can go back to college without it effecting our family so much. It's a lot to think about as I hit my midlife. At least by exercising and working to lose weight I can work towards living longer. Wish me luck!
