Thinking about getting healthier today. It isn't any easier than I thought it was when I was 20. I thought I was fat, but weighed only 125. It was the Twiggy days & I truly thought I was fat! Imagine.
It isn't any easier than I thought it was when I was 30, the hardest birthday I have ever experienced. I realized that more than half the world was younger than me! I had 3 boys and I thought I was fat, having retained 10 lbs from each baby. I felt obese at 155 lbs! The boys & I spent many hours at the Y swimming, walking, and running. And the weight slowly came off - again.
It isn't any easier than I thought it was when I was 40 or 50. Now here I am, holding tight to the lifeline called SparkPeople - taking the time to relearn about things I should have taken to heart long ago.
It's one thing to know something, completely another to put it into daily life practice. Never before have I been so connected with my food and the nutrition it provides. Never before have I monitored my intake so consistently, viewing food as fuel and wanting only the best fuel for this ol' body. Never before have I tried to incorporate physical activity in such a consistent way.
So here is hoping for success for health and hoping that ANYONE younger who reads this, gets themselves in gear for better health at an earlier age. Do not let your busy life get in the way. :)
It is well worth it!
