New Year, New Focus

I have always struggled with body image and weight problems. I was a successful Weight Watchers member in my earlier twenties, but after each of my five pregnancies I gained back all the weight I had originally lost. I've been carrying that baby weight for almost 10 years now.

As I celebrate my forties, I find myself feeling sluggish and unattractive and wanting to show my children an image of active, healthy ageing.

I have always struggled with body image and weight problems. I was a successful Weight Watchers member in my earlier twenties, but after each of my five pregnancies I gained back all the weight I had originally lost. I've been carrying that baby weight for almost 10 years now.

As I celebrate my forties, I find myself feeling sluggish and unattractive and wanting to show my children an image of active, healthy ageing.

I want to be an active healthy woman who likes what she sees when she looks in the mirror. I want to be able to run with my dogs, dance with my kids, and go hiking with my husband.

I am a mother of five very active children (19, 17, 16, 14 and 10), four of whom I home educate, and am having trouble making time to do all the things that need to be done, especially exercise and healthy eating.

I am hoping to focus on
1) changing one thing at a time, so I don't become overwhelmed
2) learning to be kind and gentle with myself
3) on not worrying how slow the numbers on the scale move, as long as they maintain or decrease.
4) figuring out how to like exercise
