I have never had a blog before. I am hoping that this will keep me motivated and have accountability by basically keeping a public diary.
I have been overweight basically since giving birth to my first son. And he’s now 25. I really don’t have any good excuses, except maybe blaming it on genes and heredity. My mother was significantly obese. However, I know I can’t blame it all on her. I love food. I eat when I’m happy, depressed, bored, well basically anytime. Addicted to sweets for sure! I have tried to lose weight before…. Weight Watchers, Adkins, Keto, you name it. I do good for about 2-3 days and fall back into my old habits. Eating late at night and eating fast food does not help. Plus owning a restaurant definitely makes it harder.
I turned 49 a few weeks ago (December 6th). I guess my goal is to be healthier by the time I’m 50. I will be sharing a lot of details: weekly weigh ins ( this will be the most difficult thing to share) , daily food diaries, and activities I will be doing to help with the weight loss. You will probably learn more about me, my family and how I got to the weight I am today throughout this process. The journey will start January 1st. This blog is mainly for me but I hope someone will be encouraged by reading it or if anyone wants to share ideas with me, please do so.
I am still navigating my way through this site and need to figure out how to post photos and videos. I’m sure my techy son will help if persuaded. Wish me luck.
See you on the 1st!!
