Ok, here I go. I have never wrote a blog before. It doesn't look too hard. I will probably be the only one reading it, which is ok. I know while traveling down the road of weight loss and fitness, writing down your feelings is vital. I never have before which could be one of the reasons I have yet to progress much toward my goal. So I am now ready to give this a try.
Up until my20's, I was never a heavy person. Actually, I was the opposite. As a child, I was a skinny rail of a kid. Throughout my teens, I was skinny. Granted, I refused to eat which helped to maintain that skinny frame. Looking back, I have always had a problem with food, lack of exercise and overall unhealthy lifestyle. The only difference is I could fit into a size 2 at the time, and now, let's just say I am far from that. I learned these habits from my mother. She was always looking for the easy way to "keep her figure". Without a good role model, how was I going to learn any different?
What I do know is that she died 10 months ago at the ripe old age of 57. That's only 22 years older than I am now. But the difference is going to be that I will lead and live a more healthy lifestyle in order to make sure I am there for my kids and grandkids for a long, long time. I also want to teach them healthy habits now that they can carry into the rest of their lives. That starts here and now.
