Taking on a lifetime of bad habits

My name is Katie and I've been fat as long as I can remember. I was raised on fast food and soda, and though my eating habits now include vegetables and water only I keep gaining. I now understand that it really isn't the food effecting my weight, its my lack of activity. I have a desk job like most of us and get little activity in, especially because I work from home. In the past year or so I've started to have a good deal of pain throughout my body, but especially in my knees. I've consulted ...
My name is Katie and I've been fat as long as I can remember. I was raised on fast food and soda, and though my eating habits now include vegetables and water only I keep gaining. I now understand that it really isn't the food effecting my weight, its my lack of activity. I have a desk job like most of us and get little activity in, especially because I work from home. In the past year or so I've started to have a good deal of pain throughout my body, but especially in my knees. I've consulted doctors and they still don't have a diagnosis, so I'm making my own....a lifetime of sitting on my butt is the reason I'm in pain and no one should live in constant pain if there is something you can do about it. Today I realize, I cannot continue to complain about the pain I am in to my friends and family if I am not willing to do something about it. I also have a 1.5 year old daughter, who doesn't deserve to see me go through a myriad of health problems her whole life...heck I'm only 27 and I already feel like an old lady! So today it starts. Today I put my foot down and say, "Katie, I'm not going to let you sit around and eat junk anymore. You owe this to yourself and to your friends and family who love you."
