The Beginning

March 12th – the day my new life began.  Through talking things through with my dear friend, Andi McCaffrey, I knew it was time to begin this journey – this sojourn to my new life of being healthy.  I know it is not going to be easy.  I can be lazy sometimes so difficult is not something I look forward to.  But … like Andi reminded me … I don’t want to die.  If I keep going the way I am going, I will die much younger than I should.  I want to one day be able to take hikes with my boyfriend, Gary, the love of my life.  It is embarrassing to try to go on a simple nature walk with him because I have to rest so many times.  The walk ends up being an excruciatingly painful hike rather than a nice leisurely walk through the woods.  I don’t want to be that person anymore.  This blog is to help me see my progress and to one day look back at this first post and be happy that I’m not the person I started out as but that I am a much better version of myself.  This isn’t about the aesthetics of being overweight but it is solely about my health.  This past weekend has been difficult but I made it through without eating unhealthy.  The exercise part of this journey is what I find even more difficult and so I pledge to do better this week.  Onward!
