My Fitness Journey

Friday, May 6, 2011

In all reality, my journey began on Jan 1, 2011.  I got  off to a great start, was highly motivated and built up a wonderful support group of women online who were (are) on the same journey as me.

Then, let's just say, I got seriously sidetracked by a series of events which overshadowed my desire to become a healthier and happier person in 2011.

So, now, I have re-packed my bag of necessities. I searched until I found my desire, hunted for more motivational and supportive people to add to my arsenal and after consulting my map, have chosen a slightly different path, which leads to the same final destination.

 I have decided to begin this journey with the 21 Day Made To Crave Challenge.  Though I am not constantly consumed with a desire for food, I realize that I do use food to reward or punish myself.  I am not an emotional eater, I am the opposite - an emotional 'starver'.  When facing emotional pain, I turn away from food and have gone weeks without any type of nourishment at all besides water and coffee.

If you care to join me on this journey there are several ways you can do it.  If you only want to read about it and perhaps glean some motivation for yourself, then can just read my blog posts here.

If you are on your own journey into health and would like to have more personal support & motivation,  you can find me at My Fitness Pal with the username soshotout, or at SparkPeople. Either way, I would be glad to help you in any way I can, even if I only provide you with a good story line and a laugh once in a while :)
