349 days left

I can't figure out why I am having such trouble finding something to write about. My brother (whose birthday I forgot) nudged me about not writing today. The big 59 day came and went without any angst. So it isn't that. I think I've just been busy with stuff - and when I am, I don't spend time thinking about anything. I'm busy doing.

Part of what I'm not thinking about is losing weight. Actually, it is almost all I think about. I HAVE TO LOSE WEIGHT!!!!! My fatness is driving me crazy. It has been about 4 years since I really started putting on the pounds. At least I think it is 4 years. Wow - maybe it is longer..... Anyway, I am planning a new regimen, and am working a part of it already. It is important that Bill and I do this together. Why, you ask? Because we both have health issues that will go away if and when we lose weight. I have a fatty liver, he has high blood pressure - YUCH!

Bill is bicycling! Or he will be when he finds a bicycle that fits him.

Notice the One Way sign! He is so cute.....

So - we have serious, significant weight to lose. I may work my way into bicycling, but at this point I have it in my head that I'm going to fall and rip all the skin off my arms and legs. At some point when that fear dissipates, then I can ride. For now, I am walking outside. I was using the treadmill until we had our basement floods and leaks. Always, always, always the leaks are over and around the exercise equipment (giving me a good excuse to take a break). We can no longer be cavalier about our commitment.

Now we embark on our journey to healthy bodies! I wonder why it is so difficult......

Good luck. Bill's 'reason' sounds like him. Whenever he doesn't really want to do something, there's an 'if' clause somewhere in his statement of intent.
I prefer walking myself. In our area it's much safer than cycling.
