Fix My Face!

Anyone that sees me knows I have some facial issues; acne (like major acne) and a redness "butterfly effect" I've had this basically forever and looking in the mirror at my face has always been a bit hard to be honest.
I know that when some people look at me all they see is the blemishes. Since I've been at my job many people have openly asked and/or commented on my face. I once threatened to wear a bag over my head if another person commented on it. No, I never did this, but I felt like it. After so many comments and so many years of seeing my face this way I decided to ask my doctor about it. He thought it was possibly lupus so I had that checked and that wasn't the problem so he suggested that it might be rosacea, but that I would need to see a dermatologist for that. I needed to make sure I had been at my job long enough that it wouldn't look bad for me. So I'm about to my 6 months and I scheduled an appointment for a couple weeks after my 6 months.
So here I am less than a month away from my appointment and I can't wait for them to tell me what it is and fix it. I'll be very disappointed if they can't fix it.. I wouldn't wish a permanent case of whatever this is on anyone. Pray people, pray!
One way or another I've got to feel better about me!

A Bit Fit..Oh I Mean FitBit

So I now have a FitBit! I'm pretty excited! I got it late in the day, but I hurried up and got my 10,000 steps in around 4 hours. Who knows how many steps I've taken today before that, but I wanted my 10,000.

I can't wait to take it to work and see how many steps I get in while I'm there! I hope it's as many as it feels like, but you never know. If it is great, if it isn't I guess I'll just have to work harder at work. Lol.

All this walking has made me super thirsty and I've been forcing myself to drink more water around 40 oz a day.. I know, I know I'm supposed to drink more than that. I'll get there. I've only been drinking it for 3 days. I don't like to drink water, I'm a SWEET tea or pop (soda) person. BUT I have noticed health benefits already from drinking water so the suffering will be worth it.

Also I'll be tracking what I eat so I can TRY to stay at a certain amount of calories a day. The FitBit app has so far had everything I've ate and that's unusual, most apps don't have a lot of restaurant foods (which is about all I've ate today).

I'm REALLY liking this FitBit!

I can't wait to lose some weight and get my body back to being healthier!
