A New Start

I'm finishing some homework at the library - I have two motor control classes this summer semester- and afterwards will begin the first step down a new road: my first visit to an organix co-op grocercy. We are sadly without WholeFoods in my neck of the woods, by the local Bloomingfoods will substitute.

What new beginning does this symbolize? A commitment to eating better, and hopefully to better health. Not to being skinny . . .but to being better to my body. I have struggled with weight my entire life, and have twice been able to lose a moderate amount off my frame - going as low as a size 8 on a frame that typically hovers around a 14. (There. I said it. Out loud-ish). However, any other endeavors to be "better" to myself involved very unhealthy habits - I won't go into details, but one ended up with me very, very, sick and in the hospital for dehydration-caused kidney problems. This time will be different. Organic food, real meals, and exercise. I plan to start Monday updates for you all, both to motivate me, and to hold me accountable.

Wish me luck!
