little update on me

I have been dealing with some health issues and today was the first day I've had much energy in awhile. I did lots of housework, everyone pitched in the place was a disaster.

I'm taking on a new lifestyle, I am changing my diet to be mostly fruits and vegetables and very little everything else, it's called an alkaline diet.

I won't bore you with all the details but I need to lose 40-50 pounds as soon as possible. I have already lost 10 this past week. My blood pressure is elevated and I have been monitoring it and trying to chill out.

They gave me a drug to take but it made me feel terrible, I am trying to treat this naturally, losing weight and eating right will help.

I am excited and nervous, I have been wanting to lose this weight that I've been carrying for a couple years now. I just didn't know where to begin.

I went to a holistic doctor and he has me taking supplements to help my digestive issues so I can eat this stuff.

I've been resting and watching movies and reading The Shack, why because I also had a UTI and I'm not sure if it's completely gone.

Jason bought a treadmill off of Craigslist so I will be starting an exercise routine also.

Burn that fat, woohoo!!!

Then maybe I'll post an updated picture of me since my profile pic is like 4 years old.

Actually I do have one up on myspace photo album from May.

So that's me, a little boring lately...

Let me know how that works - I think the diet might be hard to do long term. Please keep us posted - I'd love to learn.

I know you can do it, Stephanie. Diet and exercise are tough ones for me. I guess I need to be more motivated.

It looks good to me, the diet that is. The alkaline things look like what I like to eat and I do feel the best when I am eating those. My issue is that I have to be more creative to find enough protein. And as far as the treadmill, I feel so much better when I get at least a 1/2 hour walk in a day.

Good luck to you :) you can do it!

You won't believe how much better you'll feel on that diet. Our bodies are supposed to be slightly alkaline, the problems arise when we fill our body with acid ash foods... such as animal products and the junk that passes as food in our society.

You're not doing this alone! I'm with you on this...

Not boring. Keep us updated. Will you be tempted with meat while fixing for the kids?
