The Beginning… November 9, 2008Posted by ntagatf in Uncategorized.
So, this is the beginning.
I am a 25 yr old American girl, living in Canada and going to university. I have been very lucky in my life–I have an education, great friends, spectacular family…
This is not a sob story blog, to complain or to gripe about my life. I have had success in almost everything I’ve tried– but I have massivelyt failed myself in on vein– I am seriously overweight and have to do something about it. I can’t do it on my own. I need an outlet. And I can’t talk to my friends about this– tey are all thin, and would just tell me to hit up the gym more (while still encouraging me to eat deep fried cheese sticks when er go out). So I have turned to the great anonymity of the internet. I know I am not the only one with this problem. I have had some success and gained it back– and I recognize that weight isn’t jsut about diet, genetics, activity– a huge component, for me at least, is stress, life and happiness. When I am happy and the world seems perfect, I lose weight and am healthier. But when things fall apart and stress gets to me, I gain. So, part of the battle for me is learning to cope with stress and let-downs in a way that won’t promote weight gain and disillusionment. I hope you will find something here that speaks to you– I’m in this to change myself. I truly believe every person is here to improve the world–to do something great and to help one another. I want to improve myself, and hopefully can help someone else reach their goals along the way.
