The Heart Truth- Red Dress

Go deeper than the pink, go red. Go deeper than the breast, go to the heart.

Heart disease is the NUMBER ONE killer of women in the USA. Eat right, exercise, get enough sleep, and cultivate social relationships (make friends!); these will help save your heart. I know because I have CAD, coronary artery disease.

Lessons Learned

Finally, I am losing weight and taking control of my life. How? Weight Watchers, a treadmill, evil pictures, mirrors and common sense!

If I'm not tracking my food then I'm not on WW. So I am tracking and learning what works and what doesn't. What doesn't work? Sugar. New rule- eat the required fruits and vegetables and get enough liquids, then have a serving of a sweet, if I'm hungry. Common sense (and very French!)

Thanks to Cara and Donnie for the treadmill. It is self-powered and taking up much of the living room.

Evil pictures- the ones my mother took on vacation. I am BIG.

Mirrors- to be well-dressed one needs a full-length mirror. See what I actually look like. Elizabeth Taylor said when she was too fat she only looked in small mirrors that only showed her face.

Common sense- If you keep doing what you've done, you'll keep getting the same results. True. So I am changing what I do- what I eat and how much I move.

and be positive!

I really hate to see myself in a full length mirror. I cannot see what Drew sees in me, but I am glad he does.
I will have to loose some weight, I am at 300lbs and my goal is 275 by years end.
