Yesterday began my journey to better health and weight loss. Over the past year I have really let myself go and have not taken care of my body the way I should. The thing that first prompted my need for change was when I noticed my pants were fitting tight. This caused me to realize that something must be done. While I am not overweight, I am nearing the top of what would be considered normal body weight for my height. It is startling to look on the scale and see that I weigh more than I ever have. This to me is not cool. And this calls for a change. As part of this change I have decided that I am going to exercise more, be more conscious of what I am eating, and drink more water. My goal is to lose about 17 pounds. I think if I did that I would feel better about myself and that I would feel a lot better.
So yesterday I began by documenting everything that I ate. Also I walked 30 min during my lunch break. After walking I could already start feeling a little bit better. My hope is that as I continue this journey I will continue to feel better, have more energy, and feel better about myself.
