1st Things 1st
Summer greetings from the Big Guy and me! I don’t know about you but it is really hard for me to enjoy this hot, hot weather. But I hope whatever your pleasure is; you are enjoying it to the fullest.
It has been 1 year since Walt and I started a regular physical fitness routine, with a fitness conditioning specialist, and it’s now true confession time. Big guy has lost approximately 30 pounds; has self-managed his diabetes well enough to have his medication routine greatly reduced by his doctor. Me; on the other hand had, operative word “had”, continued to be challenged with no weight loss, to speak of. Although in January, just six months into our routine, I had lost quite a few inches.
This past Friday was our last day, for now, having regular workouts with our specialist, Jose, who has just been a “breath of life” for us. I tell everyone I know, if you can afford it, it is well worth every dime.
As you can see, we each had big smiles on our faces; although some of the reasons may differ from person to person; one thing for certain is we were all smiles because Big Guy and I “got it”. As much as I hate the heat, I now walk 5 miles, 6 days a week and finally, drum roll please, yes finally, I lost weight! I weighed 4 pounds less on my last official weigh in. Y-E-A-H-H!!!!!!!!!!
Lesson learned, always have a G. P. S. to help you travel the roads to a healthy lifestyle. G.P.S.??? Did I hear you ask, “what is a G. P. S.”?? Well, you will have to watch for my next post to learn about the necessary G.P.S.
Eat well. Exercise. Drink plenty of water. Stay cool and have a very happy 4th of July.
