Why I’m overweight: I’m an emotional eater. It started when I was young and snacked on unhealthy snacks after school every day. When I started gaining weight, I lost confidence and ate more. Over the years, I’ve grown more comfortable in my skin, but I realize I need to get healthy.
Why do I want to get fit: It’s not really that I want to lose weight, but I want to get healthy, and I know weight loss is going to come with that. I want to repair my digestive system and build muscle (which will probably make me gain weight - but the right kind), and mostly stop stressing about calorie counting and working out.
Strategy: Update (4-1-15): It's been a while since I've updated this, but I've found that changing my diet to a Primal/gluten free/low carb diet has given me the stability with my weight that I've never been able to find before. I found out that I have some digestive issues (mostly due to being gluten intolerant for years and eating gluten - whoops!), and eating low carb and taking enzymes has been profoundly helpful! Since I'm steady with my weight the way I'm currently eating, I'm going to try to switch it up by introducing Intermittent Fasting once a week and see if that helps. I'm also going to try to introduce more strength workouts now that the weather is nice to try and build more muscle tone!
