This is a little scary. I have some anxiety, but I am going to invite you along with me on my journey to better health.
Let me share a little about me. I am 53 years old. I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and an RN, and I am morbidly obese at 249 lbs. I had a complete hysterectomy last year, and my health has change drastically since. I don’t have the energy or the endurance I had before, and it’s hard to know that I can’t do the things I used to. For instance, I recently went on a mini vacation with my family to Beaver’s Bend State Park in Oklahoma. There were a lot of outdoor activities, many of which I could not participate because I could not keep up. That’s not acceptable, so I have decided to change the situation.
As a nurse, I find myself wanting to help other post menopausal women. After a lot of thought, I believe the best way to do that is to share what I know, live what I know, and share my journey.
So, here we go. Week 1.
