The New Me
Well 2015 has brought some new developments for me. I’ve decided to step back and take some time to work on me and make some major changes.
I was a smoker for 32 years and in 2014 my husband introduced me to vaping. So in February of 2014 I made the switch to vaping. It took me one day to make the switch. I must admit it wasn’t really that difficult because I was replacing one bad habit for another bad habit but I felt that vaping was a better alternative than actually smoking.
I went to see my doctor in the beginning of 2015 and found out that I weighed 301 pounds. I actually felt defeated and felt that I was not going to ever come back from this. I didn’t know what I was going to do. She prescribed me a weight loss pill and told me a lot of obese people had pretty good results with it. I knew it wasn’t a magic pill so I decided to make some changes of my own.
I stopped drinking diet soda and stopped eating any fast food. I stopped eating all foods that contained sugar. No more cupcakes, cookies, pies, cakes, ice cream, and or junk food. I started cooking at home and actually loved it!
I knew exercising was going to be the next big step for me because I hate exercising!!!! Once the weather warmed up I decided to get outside and start walking with my dogs. Now I am working out just about every day.
The last step I just made a few days ago was to put the vape down. Boy that was a tough one! It has been three days without vaping and it has been HARD!!!! I know I can do it but some habits are really hard to break.
So 2015 really is about me getting me where I need to be – HAPPY AND HEALTHY!
