So my journey begins . . .
I am a writer by nature but I have never written about my eating habits, exercise habits or my lifestyle (other than snarking about celebrities). Writing about my weight, my food consumption and my absolute lack of exercise seemed too personal somehow to share; plus I thought who wants to hear about that? It’s possible that no one wants to hear about it but I feel the need to chronicle the upcoming changes so that I will be diligent about sticking with it.
What led me to make these changes? Mostly, I don’t like how I feel and how I look. In short, I’m tired of being tired. I hate that I have zero energy. One day, God willing, I will be 80 years old but I don’t want to feel like that now.
I also suffer from acid reflux and letting my diet go to hell has made my acid reflux symptoms worse.
Although I started today with changes to my diet, tomorrow I will begin noting my weight with morning weigh-ins and details on what I eat throughout the day.
I hope you will stick with me on this journey!
