I wish there was an easy button! Changes in my life for 2014.

Hey everyone! I'm Cherye and have struggled with my weight since High School.

I am trying to rid my life of needless stress, find better ways to fit exercise in my day, and control the portions of food I eat per day. I have switched to a less stressful job and while my activity has dropped, I'm hoping to adopt better eating habits now that I am not running around like a fool at work and not taking care of myself.

Hey everyone! I'm Cherye and have struggled with my weight since High School.

I am trying to rid my life of needless stress, find better ways to fit exercise in my day, and control the portions of food I eat per day. I have switched to a less stressful job and while my activity has dropped, I'm hoping to adopt better eating habits now that I am not running around like a fool at work and not taking care of myself.

My boss at work has got me intrigued on trying out nutrisystem. It seems like a good alternative to me, because at my previous job I was too tired to eat or had no time to eat. My employees were always worried about me not eating properly. Though I dropped some weight, it was not in a good way. Especially because of how physical my job was. Now I work in a retail store that doesn't require strenuous labor, and I have time for lunches. I just don't know how to eat normally anymore. I have no idea what to eat for breakfast or lunches. LOL, sounds silly, I know, but when you give those things up for two years, it becomes ingrained and a habit. Now I have to relearn to eat normally and proportionally. It seems like it would be easier, I really wish there was an easy button for food. LOL.

Currently my husband and i are using the Fitbit One and the Aria scale to monitor our exercise and weight. I love the simplicity of the devices. They hook up to my Spark page for automatic updates. i'm a tech nerd I guess :)
