It’s time. It’s time to stop overeating, bingeing, practicing poor nutrition and lying to myself about it. I am a 56 woman, post-menopausal, who has a BMI of 35 (healthy BMI is 25 or lower), and I am emotionally tied to food. I am also a nurse and own an online nutrition business. So, I know what I have to do and finally I’m doing it.
In January, I began taking a cholesterol lowering drug. The hip and joint pain was ferocious and by April I had extremely tight IT bands in both legs and my knees became painful and swollen. So OKAY, UNCLE, it’s time. Time to take the excess weight off of my knees and lower my cholesterol. Those are the goals. Follow my daily journey to better health and if you need it, apply what you learn here to your own. We are in this together.
