Resolution No. 1 – Drop It Like It’s Hot.

1 Jan

I pledge to share my resolutions with you here during the upcoming days.

My orthopedic surgeon always used to say that I’m at risk for scoliosis if I do not work out and thus gain more weight. That is a scary prospect, no?

As of the moment I hover between 115-117 on a daily basis. By no means am I overweight. In fact, even at the heaviest, with a Body Mass Index of 22.8, I’m within the normal bounds of 18.5 – 24.9 BMI. My BMI puts me in the 32% percentile, which means that 68% of American women at my age of 28 weigh more than me. But it’s not the BMI that I’m concerned about.

My back and left shoulder blade area is actually pained on a daily basis if I do not go work it out. Scoliosis is exacerbated by extra weight pulling my spine in different directions. It is a chance that I cannot take.

More surgeries? No thanks! I’ve already gotten about 30 under my belt, major and minor.

must lose some weight. So gym everyday, even if it is a little bit of weights and stretching. Healthier food, counting calories obsessively.
