My name is Heather, and i'm 35. I am an American girl living in England with my Husband, 2 dogs and 15 ferrets.. yeap go ahead and say it lol.. strange! thats alright i dont mind that part..
What i do mind... is being overweight... sighs.. lets be honest then... not overweight... obese.. a LOT...
I'm desperate to start eating better and moving more and get some of this flab off. My clothes dont fit, my feet, ankles and knees are shot and i have been diagnosed with non alchaholic liver disease.. aka..fatty liver. I just dont like who i see in the mirror... Its Well past time i get off my butt and do something!!
But how... where do i start.. i've been to my dr who is next to useless but hey ho .. here in the UK you dont get to choose who you see very much. They did suggest keeping a food journal so that i can see .. realllly see how much i'm eating. I go in waves of eating good and binging on fatty stuff and fast food i love and have to learn to just drive PAST McDonalds and Subway and the Icecream Isle at the store.
My husband, went out and bought me a Wii Fit Plus last month and i'm enjoying using that as well. Yesterday i did 30 min and worked up a good sweat, Hulahooping, stepping and a few ab muscle workouts.. Did you know Fit Day doesn't have Wii activities on its Activities list ? ahh well .. will have to work something out..
Another problem i'm having is the actual exersize thing... I said before, that my feet ( plantal faciatis) ankles (just weak from falling a lot) and knees (god knows what's wrong but they hurt !!!) are shot. I know a lot of these problems would be eased or eliminated if i could just get the weight off .. but how do i exersize when i cant MOVE!!
Anyways.. i look forward to reading the forum, getting to know some of you better and finding maybe .. just maybe a tip or two that will help me get on my way to being a healthier and happier me..
Hope thats not too overwelming for a first post...
