Talking Getting healthy! - August 2nd 2015, 05:33 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I put a trigger warning here because I'm going to talk about dieting. I know that sometimes this subject can be triggering, so please read with caution. (My weight will be exposed so please please, if this triggers you, do not read!)

Just as the title implies, I want to get healthy (and stay healthy) !!

When I was 17 years old I weighed Edited. When I found out I was pregnant, I was still pretty active. I swam, rode horses, I worked on a farm, I would hike, bike ride, hunt. The further along I got during my pregnancy the more uncomfortable I had became. My body wasn't used to the weight gain, and it started the habit of me becoming lazy. I would eat more (cravings and eating for two and all that) and I would lay around resting rather than going walking, or going to the park.

At the end of my pregnancy I weighed Edited pounds. I gained Edited pounds! I have lost a few, but it's taken a while. (My daughter is two.) I'm still overweight, and it's not a surprise to anyone who has seen my pictures. I want to get healthy again! I want to lose the weight!

I would LOVE to feel better about my size, and I would love to be able to be more active and get tired less. I know I have a hard road a head of me, and I know that if I don't stick with it, I'm not going to make progress. I've asked Jordan to join me in these efforts to become healthier. So far, we have quit smoking, and we've cut down on our soda. We don't drink soda in the home anymore, we only drink milk, and water. (We have juice for Ava.)

We are slowly trying to make positive changes. My reason for posting this is to reach out to others who are making similar changes. Any advice, even just a few tips, would be great! Thanks!

I'm in the process of eating healthier and getting more exercise as well. I haven't been doing all that well, as my changes are very small until I can handle it (I don't do change very well). I've been drinking a lot more water, and cutting down on soda a lot. Ice cream is my weakness, but I'm trying to lose that habit as well. It takes a lot of work and dedication, but it's worth it. I can't share my results here, but I can say that it's making me feel 10x better about myself every time I make a better food or life choice.

There is no beauty without some strangeness.

It's so good that you are making progress in getting healthy! I need to do the same. It is hard, but with determination and motivation, you can definitely do it
