I figured that I’d caused a lot of damage to my feet because I was very overweight for a long time. I figured that it would be something to live with, even after I worked so hard to dump that extra weight. A Sacramento chiropractor helped me get back on my feet with no troubles, though. I understand now how important it is to take care of your body, so now I make a point at working at staying near an appropriate weight for my height and frame. It wasn’t easy after many years of really bad habits, but now it’s not a problem at all.
Weight became a problem for me when I first moved out on my own. Not having a lot of money to buy food because you have so many bills to pay on your own means that you sometimes have to get creative with the foods you purchase. Well, that it is if you don’t really have any experience in how to eat healthy on a cheaper budget. I bought a lot of cheap pasta, rice, potatoes and other carbs that would be very filling and are inexpensive. I also bought a lot of things like cheese and butter to top these things with. About three years into living in my first apartment, I had already put on about 30 pounds of extra weight, and it kept on going from there.
I ended up watching a show about gardening one day, and it occurred to me that I could grow my own healthy foods. I live in a bottom-floor apartment that has a patio. This enabled me to plant a lot of veggies in containers. I had more than enough. I even had to give some away! But eating all these fresh vegetables lowered my grocery bill and allowed me to eat better. I lose weight quickly.
