I may have mentioned before, I struggle with my weight and body image issues. Due to health reasons, surgeries and disability, I have gained a lot of weight over the years and find it next to impossible to loose.
I have been searching for something to help me track my weight, fat, muscle and BMI better. Well, I found it.
I read about the GetFit scale online and contacted them. They very gracious provided me with a scale to try and review.
I really like it. It lets you program more than one user, is super light weight and easy to set up.
I have only had it a short amount of time but have lost 10 lbs. I won't say it is all due to the scale, but it has helped.
My old scale was not accurate. This bad boy is accurate down to the ounce.
As I use it and progress, I will from time to time update you on my progress. I won't be sharing my numbers as far as weight go, I'm not that secure. LOL
I can say sadly enough, that my doctor thinks I should loose 130 lbs. THAT sounds like an impossible goal to me. I hesitate even putting that number on here as people can be so cruel and I'm sure I get some nasty comments about being fat.
I know people do it. But I am taking it one pound at a time. Right now I am rejoicing that I lost 10, because that is 10 I'm not carrying.
I will continue with my blog, my recipes and decadent foods, but you will see more healthy choices. I have already cut out all processed foods (almost all) and cook from scratch. I do not drink soda, coffee or tea unless it is herbal with honey.
I rarely eat out and even more rarely eat fast food.
I drink lots of water.
I won't give up my sweets but instead will make healthier meal choices so I can have the desserts I love and will eat smaller portions.
Hope you'll stop by to keep up with me and this journey and will be encouraged on your own journey to a healthier life style. I'm not doing a diet. Because the first three letters spell DIE. I have changed my life style.
Here are a few recent recipes to help you see that food can be health and good!
