Remember the old TV Show DRAGNET? When I was little we use to watch it at my Gramma's house all the time and I can still hear Sargent Joe Friday speaking in his dry and non-emotional way, "Just the facts, Ma'am! Just the facts!" So...instead of boring you with lots of non-essential statistics I thought I 'd go straight to the chase...
Here's the Skinny...
I was at my local Doc's place just before Christmas and then THREE TIMES right after New Year's with the "wish I was dead" FLU. As usual I had to get on the DREADED SCALE for a quick "weigh-in" and I'm not afraid to tell you this caused me much ANGST!. Still, as sick as I felt I wasn't up to arguing with my Doctor's Head Nurse (who I lovingly call BROOMHILDA!) over STEPPING ON or NOT STEPPING ON the scale. Beings it was just AFTER Christmas and I had consumed things like CHOCOLATE ALMOND BRITTLE, SUGARED ALMONDS (who provided those recipes anyway?????), all that Figgy Pudding and of course my family's infamous FRUUUUUUUUUIT...KKKKKKKAKE I was just a tad bit nervous about what I might find out. Even so, inside I quietly thought
"HOW BAD CAN IT BE?
HOW BAD CAN IT BE????"
Now...have you evahhhhh stepped up on a scale and tried leaning a little to the LEFT in hopes the weight-slider might follow your lead and stop climbing to the right?
Well...it didn't work.
Long story short is this...I nearly FAINTED right then and there over the number I saw starring back before me. Now...this totally bums-me-out because last year I lost 18 pounds and kept it off until my Mr. AGPMan and I went gallivanting around the deep south late last Summer and Fall and consumed too much food at places like O'Charley's and the like... Not ONLY did I gain every single pound back (which wasn't ALL I needed to lose in the first place), but I found a few more pound-friends along the way... The hubbs did, too!
Sooo....back to "Just the facts, ma'am! Just the facts!"
I decided to rejoin Weight Watcher's because even though I certainly do like my body not so
FAT FLUFFY the bottom line for me is this...
Heart Disease is the number one cause of death for women and that takes into consideration ALL forms of cancer (including breast cancer). I am absolutely serious about shedding the 30 pounds I've packed on since having my second child back in 1984. I've decided I love my own Heart enough to take really good care of her for the rest of my life.
"Just the facts, Ma'am! Just the facts!"
Love to you...
