Throwing myself kicking and screaming into the deep end of the diet pool.

Damn! Damn, damn, damn.  I have to lose weight, not for all the usual reasons I usually want to lose weight; looking good, feeling better, fitting into clothes etc., but because my spine has decided it doesn’t want to hold me up anymore.  According to the orthopedic specialist, I have arthritis in my lower or lumbar spine.  My orthopedic guy looks about 12 so what does he know, right?  Except the pain I have had in that area for 10 years, that’s right folks, 10 years, would indicate that he has a point. Damn!  Damn, damn, damn.

At 5’ 3” I should be about 135 lbs., instead I am a fine-looking curvaceous 175 lbs.  So out, damn blubber, out.   In the next weeks, months and maybe years, I will share my weight, struggles, successes and recipes with anyone who cares to stop by and get some encouragement on their own  journey – or feels like drop kicking me back on track if I stray.
