Weight Loss

Fangirls, I’ve struggled with my weight for years. I’ve had body confidence issues since late elementary school; I remember having a girl in my class tell me that I was a fat, four-eyed freak in fourth grade. I was less chubby in middle school, because I got into field hockey, and was busy often. In high school, I put some weight back on again, but my heaviest wasn’t until this past December.

Appdicted: Fitbit

Okay Fangirls, in my quest for becoming healthier this year (definitely a quest, not a resolution), I have been doing my walking and exercises every day. Last week, my mum and I went on a quest for a fitbit for her, but since nowhere sells the one that she wants (there’s a specific model, and she wants it in orange, which you can only buy online), I ended up coming home with a fitbit. I got the Flex in Slate, because blue-grey will go with almost everything in my wardrobe. I was quite surprised when she offered, but of course I jumped at the opportunity. Now I could see if I was walking as much daily as I should be, and if not, I could remedy it.

My steps are as of 5:39 this morning, so there aren’t too many yet.
