In 2009, I weighed 220 lbs. One day after getting out of the shower, I looked at myself and wondered how, and why did I do this to myself. Why did I allow myself to disfigure my body? I felt subhuman. I also became menopausal and fell into a deep depression. After crying in the doctor's office, he said "all I can do for you is give you a hug, and suggest you exercise." Instead, I left with prozac in hand. I decided that's not how I wanted to live my life so I began to move more each day. I started by walking. Now, I jog, bike, hike and zumba.
|At myheaviest. I have no idea how much I weight.|
|Hiking at 175 lbs.|
Exercise has enriched my life in ways I can't begin to explain. Oh wait, I can. There is a section on my blog called Proud Moments. The scale does not always reflect my efforts, but the Proud Moments in my life do reflect the changes I am making with each day.
Paula Wanna Cracker are the bloggings of a hungry woman, trying to live a fit and healthier life. One day at a time. They say it's not the destination that counts, but the journey and I completely agree. This blog is a reflection of my life. I am not perfect but I am real.
