My body just annoys the crap out of me lately. Iím 36 but sometimes I just feel old. I have had some killer headaches over the last five days, two migraines and a regular bad guy, and it just really saps me of the will to do anything. (On the plus side it meads I donít spend any money.) I plan top start Weight Watchers on Wednesday; a friend of mine is having good luck with it, and clearly I canít make progress on my own. I know that being somewhat overweight doesnít cause migraines; itís just that I feel overall not healthy; I get sick at the drop of a hat and always feel like like Iím getting something over getting over something. I see my doctor regularly, I donít think I have any wild and crazy undiagnosed illnesses, I just believe that if I can be overall healthy: eat right, sleep well, be physically active, donít do harmful stuff, that my body will have to be at least somewhat better.
I quit smoking and quit drinking in the month of February, so I suppose having my first Weight Watchers meeting in February matches a pattern. In fact tomorrow will be my eight year sobriety date. I donít know the exact date I quit smoking, but it was mid-February six years ago.
I know enough about dieting and exercise to know that a person doesnít need to follow Plan X or Plan Y; I know enough about myself to know that my way isnít working and that Weight Watchers is definitely not harmful. I know exercise is important, but I also know that I overeat. Maybe it will cost me $40 a month more than I need to pay, but if it instills in me some sense of structure and accountability it will be worth it.
I donít think Iíve ever gone twelve days without posting before. I think the desire to post varies for me, not in how Iím doing, or how frugal I am, it just varies. Itís funny that I start to feel guilty when not posting, as itís not a requirement or chore.
