I swear, why does being healthy have to be so boring? I mean, shouldn't the idea of doing better for your body and giving yourself a chance to live longer be enough excitement? ... Nahhhh.
I have made a deal with myself that I will allow myself to drink again once I hit 150 lbs. I have been struggling with my weight for years, upon years, upon years. I used to be 225 pounds at my heaviest! I've lost a small animal so far, but still have another small animal to go, so I figured if I give myself some incentive it'll be a little bit easier to choke down those salads and say "No, thanks" when offered a beer. :(( I do miss my beer!
I also realized that using a wheelchair occasionally has been injuring my elbow, or at least not allowing it to heal, so I have to stop doing that and just use the walker. It would seem like it would be the opposite, but it's not. I went two days without using the chair and my elbow started to feel better, then I used the chair again and it hurts again. UGH.
So, I suppose I'll have to stop using the chair again just to see if my elbow will heal. I like using the chair to give my legs a bit of a break and time to rest, but also for cleaning and doing the things that normally take me a month to do with the walker. Oh well, I guess it's for the best to continue with my forward progress of trying to walk unassisted. But, it still sucks.
So, in 15 pounds I can have an ice cold beer, and I will! (or maybe even several)
Never Give Up
