This is it Day 1 to my change of Life. I can't say that I am starting a new diet because diets fail, you get tired of the them and you go off, sometimes never to return. This is more than a diet for me, it's a change of life. I can never return to the way and habits I have had because plain and simple they are bad.
Though I have not put on weight since I was last here in 2009, I really haven't lost much more since then. I am 52 years old now and I have multiple health issues including obesity, diabetes, fibromyalgia, bilateral total knee replacements, hypertension, ulcerative colitis, acid reflex, sleep apnea, degenerative disc disease, and the real big surprise... major depression disorder. I am currently waiting on the results of osteoarthritis. I don't want to keep adding to this list.
I have it in my head that if things remain unchanged that I will die. I lost my sister at age 48 due to multiple health problem contributed to her weight, though I loved my sister, I do not want the same fate as her.
Physical activity has not been a routine at all in my life. Due to the problems listed above, I have had an awful time just walking let alone exercise. Whenever I walk up stairs I am winded and exhausted. This is not the me I want to continue as. Time for a change of life.
Like I said this is day 1 for me and I would love to have others join me in this battle to regain our lives. I know it will work here if I can just stick with it. I think I can and I think others can do the same
