Me and my tread mill.

I thought I would get a few pictures of myself on the tread mill so that I could see the difference as I lose weight of how I look on my tread mill. Anything to keep me motivated.
I have to say I really like my tread mill and where it is located I am able to see the TV so if I am watching a movie on Netflix I can watch and walk at the same time. Most of the time I actually end up walking longer because I am not thinking about it.
It also has a Ipod/ MP3 hook up but I don't own one, everyone else in the family has one but me.
Maybe that will go on my list for something to get during my weight loss journey.
You can see the new sneakers that my husband bought me while I stride along.
Below I have a smile on my face as my daughter takes my picture, really excited to see the changes to my body during my journey.
Thank you for stopping by and make sure you follow me so that you can encourage, and give me pointers along the way.

Weigh In.

I wanted to check in and tell you how I was doing. I am down to 366 as of this morning. I hadn't weighed myself in a while due to taking care of my husband, and then getting sick myself. Don't worry though it was just a cold, although during it I didn't get on the tread mill I am now back on the saddle.

After seeing the Dr. at the beginning of the month I now know I have Fibromyalgia. I am currently taking medicine for it although I hate the thought of having to take medicine for the rest of my life. Good news though my Vitamin D count finally went up. Not enough to take me off of the supplements, but enough to know that my body is finally absorbing it. I also found out that I am not anemic for the first time in my life. That is amazing news in of itself.

I have a very good outlook on my life for the next year. With the medicine I am able to do things I haven't been able to do for years. I still get tired easily but how much I have been able to get done around our home out weighs the tiredness by a landslide. I hope to return soon with more good news and a lower number on the scale. Until then take one moment at a time, and stay healthy.
