The reason I decided to start this blog is because I'm eating too much, and I need to find something to do other than eat!
When I was 26, I was 320lbs. It shouldn't have been surprised to get that big, I ate terribly.
When I was diagnosed with bursitis in my hips, arthritis in my knees, and told my feet had gone flat because of the excess weight, I decided to do something about it before I completely ruined by body.
So I started following a low carb diet.
I dropped 75lbs in four months! And in the next six months I lost another 35.
I hovered at 207lbs and was a secure size 16 for 13 years!!
I turned 40 this year. And have gained back 20lbs. TWENTY POUNDS!
Now I'm hovering around 227, and my clothes look terrible (those I can actually put on), I have a huge muffin top, and I'm missing the summer because I'm hiding inside my house.This sucks.
I sat down last night and decided I would make a list of things to do instead of eating. Starting a blog was not on my list last night, but it sure seemed right this morning! So, here I am.
Other things on my list so far:
- Read a book
- Weed the garden
- Call a friend
- Repaper the kitchen shelves
- Vacuum the stairs
- Re-caulk the bathtub
- Go to the gym
- Leave the kitchen
