Here we go again! I'm back on the diet train for what seems like the millionth time ever, but am more motivated than ever to make a healthy lifestyle change!
I'm at the highest weight I've ever been (26 years old and over 280 lbs) and am unhappy and lacking confidence after more than a decade of failed diet attempts and an unhealthy relationship with food. After receiving some scary high A1C levels from my blood test last week, I am more committed than ever to lose weight and change my relationship with food and the way that I see my body. As an aside, I have also recently started an anti-depressant/anti-anxiety medication for the first time ever, and am feeling more positive and energetic.
This journey is about so much more than losing weight to me. I want to find the "old me" again ... the person who is confident and strong. Its been so long since I've taken care of ME and I am finally ready to work for better mental and physical health. I know that change won't happen overnight, but I am committed to bettering myself and becoming happier and healthier.
I hope that you will join me on this journey of "Healthy Body, Healthy Mind". I look forward to any encouragement, support, advice, or anything else. Thank you!
Work out. Eat well. Be patient. Your body will reward you.
