About Emily

Hello all!  I am so happy to be starting this blog and I am super excited that the husband wants to contribute!  I thought I would start out with a little about me and my ideas for Wells Live Well.  Hopefully soon, Daniel (that's the husband) will post about himself so you can get to know him better too.

This blog is going to center around weight loss and healthy balance.  My weight has fluctuated over the years.  I have successfully lost weight and kept it off for years at a time, but somehow it manages to creep back on.  My plan now is to abandon the idea that a diet is a temporary way of eating to lose weight and adopt the much more logical idea that it is a way of living.

I am no longer going to tell myself that certain foods are off limits.  I am instead going to pay attention to portion size and educate myself on what is actually in my food.  We are shifting to a more clean way of eating.

As a younger person I was an athlete, a runner and a soccer player.  In my mid 20s I injured my back and found out I had degenerative disc disease.  According to my doctor I could no longer run, I had to limit myself to lower impact exercises like walking, riding a bike and swimming.  I have gotten very good at listening to my back and easing up when I need to.  I would love to add a little running back into my routine.

I hope you will follow along on my journey and share yours as well!
