Memorial Day

It is Memorial Day, 2016! Since my last post I have gone from 290 pounds to 273! That is a 21 pound weight loss.  I didn’t do it by exercising but by changing my eating habits.  I am trying to go vegan.  I am working towards a plant based diet so that I can be healthier and loose weight.  I have noticed that my feet swell when I eat too much salt. I’m worried bout that because that could mean high blood pressure, heart problems, liver problems, etc.  I should get checked by a doctor, but I can’t afford to.  In the U.S. medical attention is a luxury.

So I am doing what I can to heal myself, by working on loosing weight and getting healthy.  I have nightmares about my skin not snapping back…that scares me so much, but we will see what happens.  I started /daily Burn again.  Today I finished workout two, and today I will start journaling everything I eat, absolutely everything.  I will post at the end of the day.

This morning I started out with a glass (16 oz) of water mixed with “It Works” Greens.  My target today is 1700 calories.
