The Beginning

The change has been on the horizon for some time, but I have decided that the time for change is now. I began my healthy expedition nearly one week ago and I am excited to change my life. I have made far too many excuses in my life about not having the time to really eat, excercise, and live right but have now realized that it is important to make the time.

My self esteem is at an all time low and I weigh the most I ever have. I have come to the conclusion that I really need to feel more confident and less anxious about myself and hopefully by getting a healthy lifestyle going, I will receive a confidence boost and my anxiety will decrease.

I am a 23 year old female who will be graduating from University in May, and I am hoping get my Bachelor of Education started in September. In a society with obesity on the rise I believe that if I am going to be a teacher, than I should be able to better promote an healthy lifestyle if I am actually part of one myself.

I have recently become addicted to following Blogs and thought what a wonderful way it would be to keep track of my progress and meet people who are in a similar situation! I have begun the Weight Watchers Flex Plan and so far it is going really well. It seems like the right plan for me because I can truly enjoy the foods I like in moderation. Hopefully this will keep me on track!

So what next? Time to get the treadmill back out from where it is hiding behind the Christmas decorations and get moving!
