Blogger Idol, Week 8
Blogger Idol is the brainchild of Darren at LivingRoom.
Each Sunday (Australian time) Darren announces a theme for the week. We have three days to work that theme into a blog post. We post the entry in our own blog and leave a link in Darren's blog so we can read what each other wrote.
If you want to read the other entries, the links are here.
I will read as many of the entries as possible. Later in the week I will list five entries of note.
This weeks theme is 'I confess'.
I Lost It
I confess to feeling very smug about losing 34 pounds.
I confess that I can easily become obnoxious talking about eating properly, improving my health, and feeling soooo much better.
I confess that I'm going to be publicly obnoxious now and write about how my life has changed for the better since I lost weight.
My weight was 168 pounds.Now I weigh 134.
My blood pressure was high enough to require two meds.Now I'm off all blood pressure meds.
My doctor was insisting I needed to go on a statin for my high cholesterol.Now my cholesterol is down without drugs.
My joints were stiff and sore with arthritis. Sometimes I couldn't walk in the morning until I limbered up.Now I'm spry and painfree. I feel ten years younger than I did a year ago.
My jeans were size 16.Now I wear size 10. People notice. Both sexes.
My stomach frequently hurt.Now it doesn't bother me.
My age was 58 and I was dreading my senior years.Now I'm 59 and looking forward to the rest of my life.
I confess that I'm still two pounds shy of my weight goal.
I confess that I'm very concerned about maintaining the weight loss.
I confess that I'm not exercising.
I know that there are people who could easily get obnoxious with me about the benefits of exercise. They are right.
I confess I just don't want to listen about exercise right now.
Can you resist leaving me a message about the benefits of exercise?
