So I am writing this so that it becomes a "real" thing. I have been battling with my weight for quite a time now, and I've has enough. In my teen years and some of university I was quite active, even when I was having what I now know was a flare I would push through and some how still mange to play. Since university I've added quite a few extra pounds. I have no real excuse for this. The past two years I have been dealing with the development of this disease and its effects and I've decided that I need to control some thing about my own body in hopes of helping it heal. I am going to loss weight. I cant wait for the summer to come, while I have not been able to take part in my favorite summer sport for the past year and a half this year I will even if I have to take a cart. I am going to join a local gym and start swimming again. I have already started to eat a much more balanced diet and have cut out most of my daily carbs.
I am sorry about posting this here but I had to, I've been saying this for years but I finally mean it!
Thanks for a safe place to vent.
