I thought that I would start this out by writing about my past experiences with food and dieting. I began thinking about my weight when I was in junior high. I struggled with anorexia until I graduated high school. My mom worked nights so I would make dinner, and take a bite or two and put it away for her. usually that bite or two was the only food I ate during the day, sometimes I might eat a bag of pretzels for lunch if I was really hungry. When I went away to college, I still didn't eat much but I ate late at night while studying and quit working out as much as I did during high school. I started gaining weight. When I graduated high school I weighed about 105 at 5'0. I thought I was fat. I gained about 15 lbs in one semester, but I was at a normal weight for once in my life and I hated it. Shortly after I started getting sick and the only way to make myself feel better was to eat. I eventually went to the doctor for it and was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. Which means I have a lack of protein and since I am a vegetarian its harder for me to eat the right amount of protein. I have a weakness for sweets and junk food which makes my condition worse so I have to eat more protein.
Lately I have had no motivation to go to the gym or eat right. I prayed about it and God showed me that I would get all those things that I desire if I seek him first, then he will give me the motivation I need. When I ran across Becky's blog I realized that this is perfect for me
My "diet" will be to eat right and work out. I want to begin by walking at least 30 mins everyday. I will also count calories to make sure I am not overeating. I found this calculator it shows you how many calories you should eat to maintain your weight, or how many to lose 1 lb or 2 lbs a week.
