I have no idea what this "abstract" box wants me to type...

I'm starting this blog to keep myself accountable. I'm a food addict trying to break the habit. More specifically, a sugar addict. I'm 5'8, my starting pants size is women's 16 (US). I don't know my weight but last I checked a few months ago it was 222. I have a pair of size 12's I call my inspiration. This morning I hung that pair of jeans up by my kitchen, also to try and keep myself accountable. I'm turning 29 this month, and I have promised myself for the last 5 years I would be healthier than ever by the time I hit 30. I'm also getting married next April, and nothing would make me happier than being AT LEAST the size I was when I met my fiance (and father of our two beautiful daughters) 7 years ago. I was a 14 then. I know it doesn't sound like much, but since I'm tall for a girl, that goal is about 50 lbs away. The main reason I want to do this is not for weight-loss though. Not too long ago I had a few symptoms for hypothyroidism. My doctor won't confirm, thanks to the state of our messy health care system right now. But one morning I was sitting at my computer, in my nice cool house when I felt a drop of water roll down the back of my arm. It turns out that was sweat. I was sweating from just sitting in a cool room doing nothing. Now even if I don't have hypothyroidism I realized I have something odd going on, probably due to my weight gain. In an attempt to make a preemptive strike I'm going to take matters into my own hands. So here I am on Day 1 of my ?? day water fast! I've never made it more than 5 days, so I'm scared to botch this up. Last time I tried I broke my fast all wrong and ended up gaining at least 10 lbs. I know how to do it, but applying this science is not as easy as it sounds for a food addict/compulsive over-eater. Here's to getting healthy, and staying there for the rest of what I hope to be a long life.
