I started this blog with quite a long list of things that I wanted to do, topmost on the list was to eat healthy, get fit, and lose weight. While I've been exploring NYC and discovering some amazing authors and books, I haven't lost any weight. I've gained some, quite a lot, actually.
I'd postponed acknowledging it but it's weighed on me (bad pun!) and I'd like to start over. I've been assembling books and advice to help me - and also friends and family to keep me on track.
I'll keep everyone posted as well - this will give me added motivation. Every week, I'll let you know what I've done and what my goals are. This week, I intend to walk for 30 minutes every other day. I'm getting over a bout of the flu, but the walking and exercise starts today.
I was watching Dr. Oz's show about weight loss. It turns out that he has a new book on losing weight. haven't read his other books, but his show was motivating. He's got a list of 99 things that will help you lose weight and they went through the first 10 of them on the show. He also pointed out the different ways that excess weight harms your body, the diseases that you become prone to, and the inflammation that results from carrying excess weight. All of these things were helpful in getting me to commit to starting today.
I remember asking for advice in the past and several of you gave encouragement and reiterated the need to keep moving. Thank you - and hopefully some of you friends will join me in starting over and reestablishing healthy habits.
