No more rice!

I'm a Canadian living in Japan, and it seems that the longer I stay here, the more I gain weight. Well, I've decided to put a stop to that this year, and I hope that I can lose all the weight I've put on since first coming to Japan over 15 years ago.

My Goals:
(June 1, 2014)

Time to start again. This time I'm going to try to go as gluten free as possible (a little difficult in Japan). I suffer from ulcerative colitis and even though I haven't been tested for gluten sensitivity, I want to see if this helps my symptoms.

Gluten-free and exercise. That's the goal for now, one day at a time. I want to track and measure how I'm feeling on a daily basis and see if it works.

My Program:
Eating right, everyday.
Exercising consistently, and setting new challenges.
Keeping the larger goal in mind.

Personal Information:
I'm a Canadian living in Japan. This is my second time here, after a five-year hiatus. The first time I left Japan I was at what was then my heaviest ever. Once I left I lost most of the weight but over the past couple of years the scale has gone up and up and up. Other than the obvious health and image issues, being a big gal in Japan is problematic -- when my clothes don't fit, I have no way to replace them. So I've decided that I need to be the change I want to see happen. I want to stop making excuses for reasons why I'm fat or can't work out. I'm focusing on the solutions, not the problems.

Other Information:
Photography is my biggest passion -- I have over 20 (film) cameras, do all my own processing and darkroom printing. I also love to travel, and love to plan for my next vacation. I also love to read, although I don't have as much time to do that here as I used to.
