I’m overweight and trying to do something about it. My health is not dangerously affected but I don’t feel comfortable with myself at this size.

I’ve been kind of small all my life with a couple of years of being heavy in between the skinny years. I gained weight in college and then again when I broke my femur. Fast forward to turning 40 and putting down cigarettes. When I quit, I went through the roughest time in my life with my health.

I had 2 foot surgeries and my cholesterol sky-rocketed. I wasn’t eating any differently that I had in the past. I wasn’t as active either. I regret ever having surgery to replace my big toe joint. If you don’t realize how important your big toe is, let me tell you. I no longer have much balance and I am in constant pain. I’ve had to learn how to walk differently and my toes….well, I won’t go there.

What am I doing about all of this? I’ve started journaling a bit.  I think I need to hold myself accountable and this is my way of doing that. I am blogging about my journey losing weight and winning better health.

I have my Fitbit Zip  and I LOVE IT!!!  I’m also using My Fitness Pal to track my food. I’ve made some progress but it’s only been a month.  I won’t go into details because this is the place where I talk about couponing and saving money.

You can read about my journey if you like. I’m not ashamed. I know there are people out there just like me, who feel like they’ve tried everything and the scale just doesn’t seem to move. Don’t give up. Keep going.
