It has been 778 days since I have updated my status. That is a pretty accurate reflection of how I have been taking care of myself. In 8 years I have slowly put on 90 pounds. I stepped on the scale about a month ago and was sucker punched with reality. I was so disgusted to see the heaviest weight ever. My joints ache, my clothes are tight, I'm tired and easily winded with moderate activity. I have lost 9 pounds over the past month by cutting sugar out of my diet. This is a very difficult time of the year for me to lose weight due to all the holiday temptations but I seem to always have an excuse to indulge in the foods that have contributed to my huge weight gain. I need support and accountability. I have been on so many different weight loss plans I can not begin to name them all. I do know I am ready to take back my health and find a healthy outlet for stress.
