I want to get my “story” down here, but it’s going to take a while to get it down on “paper.”
It’s nothing earth shattering and there is not a sob story, I just want to focus more on the present than the past. I’m only saying this because there may be some posts where I reference the past, or something that might seem bad and I would rather just say what’s on my mind and not censor myself too much but also say that I might not go into details.
I don’t know why I always have to make things so complicated, but apparently I do. 🙂
I’ve had an unhealthy relationship with food since .. Well.. The beginning of time actually.
When I was younger, I was very active and thin. (weren’t we all?)
During my teen years, food was very regulated in our house (blah blah blah Step Dad issues blah blah blah)
After getting married (at 19), things changed and I became an active cheerleader and heavy drinker (typical 20’s, right?) Then came along my kids, and with them every single excuse in the book I could think of to get out of exercising. And if I’m being honest… About 50 lbs.
It kills me that I wasted so many years with excuses.
Today though, I can honestly say that my life’s focus is on eating healthy, exercising and enjoying life.
