Since my daughter was born for some reason I just kept gaining weight. I know that I have been having issues with my anxiety and sometimes my stress level. I am sadly the type of person that needs some comfort and sometimes I get it from the wrong places for example food and sodas. Those items have really taken a toll on my body. Back in 2010 I was a little heavier than I am now and managed to drop my weight down by a little over 100lbs in a matter of a year and a half. Certain levels in my system were too high and I was able to get everything back to the normal range. About a month and a half ago I was almost to that high point again.
My dad and step mom suggested and actually got me a Fitbit HR for my birthday. I used to only walk about 1500 to 3000 steps a day on average and I was noticing that if I sat for too long I was having a hard time walking. I have been using my fitbit and getting out to exercise with my daughter daily for the past month and a half. I am now walking anywhere from 7000 to 9000 on average. I have had a few days where I did well over 12000 steps for the day. I have noticed that my old clothing is starting to fit me again. I feel that I am losing inches more than pounds which in my book is better. I just wanted to say sometimes its that motivation that makes you do something that will better your life. I know that I want to be healthy so that I am able to do all of the things that my daughter wants to do and eventually have another little one.
