August Update

You may have noticed I haven't posted in a while. It's not that I've forgotten you.

It is shame though.

That is, I have not been putting as much effort into my health and fitness as I should. That is not to say I have been totally ignoring the subject. I have worked out here and there this month.. but not for long times and, even though August is halfway over I haven't done a single workout video even though that is the theme for this month on 12 Months Together.

Yes, the shame.

That being said, I also realized that not writing on here is another reason why I am probably letting myself slide. It's one of those vicious circle things. I was holding myself accountable by posting... then I slacked off... so I didn't post because I felt ashamed... then I wasn't holding myself as accountable.

That being said, that's not the reason I really started slacking off. I starting slacking off because I got intense hives that sapped the strength out of me for two weeks straight... then I started feeling better, but was off of my exercise schedule...

Now the hives are back, but as I blogged on my main blog, I've identified the allergen and hopefully can avoid it completely in the future. I'm also getting a root canal! Fun, right?

Still, I am still totally committed to weight loss and I plan on losing more than 20 pounds in the next three months. Why? Because that's when my friend is coming to India to visit me! And I have a goal weight in mind for when I see her!


  1. Hi there!

    This is the first time I've read your blog, along with your story and how you met your husband. I understand completely how you feel. I'm quite heavy myself, and, I am ashamed of myself. I know I should exercise and watch my weight, but now I'm so heavy I can't even exercise. I almost can't walk because my feet hurt because of all the weight put on them. So what do I do? I stay inside almost all day, except for going out in the backyard to feed the birds. I know I need to lose at least 100 pounds, but how, when I can hardly walk? I want to hide and cry. Do you ever feel like that?

    Peace in Christ,


    1. Hi Peggy, I began to reply to you, then realized what you've brought up was too important not to be a post in itself! Here's my reply:
