Introduction I've titled this blog I'm Typical because when I read stories of amazing weight-loss there is usually an asterix leading to the small print at the bottom ---*results not typical. Well, after years of traveling on the weight-loss road I feel I fall into the typical category. It's a long, hard journey. I wish I could say there's joy but it's mostly a struggle - honestly. And in honesty I have learned that openness, vulnerability and confession are key to breaking free of a sin and overeating for me has been a sin. I am tired of it literally weighing me down. So this blog has begun as a fork in my road (with no cake on that fork!). I hope to be honest with my eating journal. It will keep me accountable. It's mostly for me but I open it to anyone else also walking down this road who may share in the same steps (sometimes it feels like 2 steps forward and 3 steps back, but at least we're moving!).
