Rebooting My Health

I seem to have a blog for everything else, so why not start another one?

Honesty is key when trying to stay healthy and maintain such a lifestyle. For all you readers, you are holding me at bay because I’m going to lay everything out on the table for you.

In this blog, I plan on discussing everything that I am doing to achieve and maintain good health, mistakes and all. Because this is a learning process for me, I expect to make mistakes, big and/or small.

First and foremost, let me introduce myself.

My name is Sarah and my goal for 2013 is to find a healthier me. She’s in there somewhere hiding.

I’ve been overweight since I was 9 years old. 14 years later, I’m still heavy and rather unhappy about my weight and my impending health risks. Not to mention my self esteem can be found in aisle 59 in the basement level of your local grocery store.

I’m so tired of having issues with my self esteem, with how people stereotype me because of my size, and the possibility that I can do some serious harm to my body by continuing to live like this.

Creating this blog will also let me talk a bit about the difficulties and triumphs of being legally blind, health, and weight loss. That’s right, I said “blind.” Upon doing some research, I have found that there aren’t that many resources for people who are blind or visually impaired and health related lifestyle changes, particularly when it comes to food, portion size, and calorie counting. I will share my experiences and hopefully help others along the way.

So here’s to a successful 2013. Bring it.
