Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and welcome to my very first blog entry. My name is Susan and I live in Central Florida. Here I am doing my treadmill workout .I decided to start writing this blog as a way of sharing my keep fit journey and my struggles to lose another 20 pounds and to offer support and hope to others. I have been working out since the end of March 1997 when I weighed a whopping 197 pounds today I weigh 164 my height is 5'6. Originally back in 1997 I lost 40 pounds and I maintained this weight loss for a few years until my mom died back in Dec 2004. Since then in spite of my working out 5 days a week most weeks my weight has been between 168-172 was the highest.

Recently I was able to start slowly losing weight again and this time its for health reasons not vanity. I don't want to have high blood pressure or heart disease....recently I saw my doctor for heart burn issues and was put on Nexium. My doctor said that losing weight would help alleviate my digestive issues so that is even more incentive! I struggle with eating right not enough veggies and to many sweets and calories on a daily basis. My daily afternoon drink of non-diet soda is a major downfall, and yes I know its bad for me but I crave the sweetness.
Well, I think that is more than enough of a introduction post. I have been reading others blogs and been inspired to start blogging and to eat better as well as keep up the keeping fit. Till next time...
