Identity Theft

For the first half of my life, I was slim and athletic. I was no super model, but I was strong, healthy, confident, and content with my body. As I got older and busier, I became more sedentary; and I gained weight which I successfully lost in the early 2000s.

Unfortunately, massive stress, insane eating habits, and a thyroid condition resulted in a regain of the weight. The addition of a fractured foot that curtailed exercise for months set me over the edge to my heaviest weight ...

Unfortunately, massive stress, insane eating habits, and a thyroid condition resulted in a regain of the weight. The addition of a fractured foot that curtailed exercise for months set me over the edge to my heaviest weight in 2012.

My goal is simple. To be able to look in the mirror and recognize the person looking back at me. I don't need to look 20 years old, but I want my old identity back - the slim athlete. Today is the day that I take back my identity.

March 17, 2013 - I wrote the text above on Dec. 9/12. Since then, I have lost 30 lbs. 20 more to go. I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel.

October 30, 2013 - Well, I backpeddalled a bit since the last posting and have gained back 10 lbs. I WILL turn this around, however. Just watch me go!

Thank you for adding me as a friend, and glad my daily blog was of interest to more than just me! I do it to try to be accountable, if I have a bad day then I will be honest about it, but pick myself up so that the next day will look better :) I will read yours with interest!

Yes, seeing your true face shape is a great thing after it being hidden for soooo long! I hated the way my face morphed. Not that it made me ugly, it's just that, like you said, I didn't recognize the face in the mirror. I still have a way to go but my real face is finally beginning to emerge from the depths of the fat! YAY!!!
Have a wonderful day, my friend.
