I really should start a journal even if to share my experiences in the hope they may help someone the way other journals and threads have helped me so much.

    My main goal is to get healthy and fit so my 9 year old son and I can hike and bike for longer than the mere 30/40 minutes I last before huffing and puffing... and so he doesn't have to take care of me when I get old and see me deteriorate like I recently went through with my Mom. On the way, I know I'll re-kindle a joy of life and discover all sorts of athletic stuff I want to try but just can't physically right now. He and I are saving up for loads of things like para-sailing (and that's the tip of the iceberg).

    If you could do something challenging or daring this summer, what would it be?

    I'm wrong. Dictionary says:
    verb (used without object)
    1. to move restlessly or aimlessly from one place to another: to gad about.
    noun
    2. the act of gadding.

    For maximum entertainment value I think you should carry on posting the same teenage rants as before, but just put them all here. I wouldn't bother listing everything you like everyone else does. There are lots like that already.

    Glad to see you are thinking less about restricting food. Your summer plans sound like a lot of fun, I hope you enjoy!

    Yeah, but it's not really you niche, is it? It's never that interesting to read what someone else ate for their tea. Think of your readers. Besides you could eat anything at your age and it wouldn't have any effect. No fat middle-aged person is going to read that and learn something about what they are eating and think, "Hey, if I ate like a teenage kid I would gain muscle, not get fat and actually add inches to my height". Anyway, its not healthy to record and think about everything you eat. That's actually a weight loss technique.

    By the way, I feel so much happier now that I loosened up on the food (how much and what I can eat). I just feel so much more freedom and I don't think about food so much anymore. Because of this I started enjoying so much more things in life and I hang out much more with friends like I used to . I still think about food pretty often but only in positive ways which I enjoy for example what kind of delicious meal I'm gonna cook tomorrow. and not in ways like restricting etc.

    And that's thanks to you and some other awesome people on here
    Glad to hear all of that. And wow. Good for you.
