The story of our lives. It all began for me about 2 years ago and has been going ever since. In 2012, while at my annual physical appointment my doctor said those dreaded word.
“You may want to start watching your weight. According to our records you are in the overweight category.”
I have never been overweight or close to being overweight in my life. My normal weight range was 130-140s in college, and now just a year after graduation I was up to 170lbs. Well, after one year of working out last year I hit close to my goal weight of 154 lbs. If you are reading this, please do not do what I did. I was comfortable and happy with my new goal weight and thought I had it under control. I stopped working out as often and stopped tracking my meals (MyFitnesspal). Before I knew it, about 6 months later, I was back at 170lbs. Well, here I am again trying to get back on the wagon. I want to use this section of the blog to document my journey and answer any questions anyone may have along the way.
Although I am practicing to be a Registered Dietitian and know how to eat properly, I too am human and make mistakes. I am getting back into my routine and anyone is welcome to join me. Comment below if you would like to join… The more the merrier.
