This is note to self really but I thought if I say it out loud to the universe I may succeed. It has nothing to do with art in any shape or form....
I am off to the doctors tomorrow to have my blood pressure check - I am on several drugs to reduce it. I know when I am there he will make me stand on the scales. I have realised that since I got divorced 5 years ago my weight has steadily gone up by a stone a year!!! Now I have 5 stone to shift. I have always suffered with eating issues - from a from of anorexia to compulsive eating and I thought I had settled at 'sensible eating' but I think I have not really cared enough about myself over these last five years. Some would say it's a form of comfort eating and age.
People I know keep saying I look good and often ask if I have recently lost weight. I am not sure if they are being cheeky or genuinely think I look good. The weight seems evenly distributed so I do not 'look fat'. So I guess I have not really bothered to do anything about it. Now I know I must do something or my health will suffer more.
So my challenge is to shift this weight. How I am not sure at present but will come up with a 'Non dieting' way. Checking out what I eat better and reducing the quantity again. An increase in exercise is not really my 'thing'. I do walk around the office a lot and I row every night. Time scale - medical advise says 2 lbs a week is good. So I will try just that a little at a time. It may be a long time but here goes..
