Last summer my “sleep” doctor said to me, “You are not a big woman, but you could stand to lose 5 to 10 lbs.”
But weight (Freudian slip) …a triumph! I have lost 13 pounds since August. Why is this significant?
Well, other than I may be looking a little bit “hot”*, it gives me some comfort that maybe my new life on medication is finally working and maybe I will be alright after all. An awful lot of maybes in that last sentence.
What am I doing you ask? I know it’s unconventional…diet and exercise. It’s a new feeling for me to be in control of anything. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced control before anywhere or in any way. Yeah for drugs!
* Parentheses and an asterisk must be used by me for the word “hot” because I am 47 and still haven’t quite adjusted to this word that has been substituted for the more appropriately descriptive “good looking”.
