I began my journey with being more active during the Smart Fuel Challenge with the Syracuse University Wellness Initiative Program. That was the kick start of my journey. I made better lifestyle changes and I walked everyday at least a mile (at work or at home- weekends). I would take the stairs instead of the elevator and I would drink more water than coffee. Drinking more water made me less hungry which would help me not eat the junk food at my desk. I am happy to say with a huge smile that I have lost more than 13 pounds and I am continuing to make better food and exercise choices.
