I have to admit, I didn't think that CFS/ME was much of a big deal until I got it. I thought it was basically lazy people. Now, since I've learned about fibro and CFS/ME in the last couple of years I know that my previous assumptions are untrue. Knowing what something is and having the illness are still two different things. I remember when I was sick the doctors didn't know what it was. They assumed (as did I) that I had a bad sinus infection. They did a catscan of my head because I wasn't getting any better. The catscan revealed no sinus infection.
I've decided I need to do something about my weight. The first thing I'm going to do is to concentrate on my eating habits. I've started a blog, The Shrinking Zebra, to chronicle my weight loss journey. The first week I'm just recording what I eat without changing anything. I plan on loosely following Weight Watchers to start with. I'm actually pretty excited about this. I can see from the three days I've recorded my food intake that my eating habits are out of control. I'm proud of myself for my determination to change this.
To end this blog I want to give you all a smile.
