New to Fit Day
Hello! I am 40 years old and have struggled with weight issues since I was a teenager. My Dad's side of the family and much of my Mom's have weight issues so I know some of it is inherited but there is a lot of it that I can change as well. I also struggle with chronic pain issues in my ankle, knee and back so I am limited in my exercise as well. It's easy to look at everything and give up but instead I am ready to move forward to become as healthy as possible. Losing weight will also have positive benefits for my bone and joint problems. I lost about 25 pounds in 2011 using My Fitness Pal but gained about 10 of it back this winter/spring. It is time to finally get back on track and not only lose the weight but become healthier. I am married and between us we have 5 girls - one of which blessed us with our first grandson in June of this year (although I don't seem old enough!). I want to be around to see him grow up and to meet the rest of my grandkids some day. No excuses this time around, I am going to make it happen.
