Trying to Practice Moderation

I guess you would say that I am lucky. I have never been over-weight according to nutritional (BMI) standards. My parents are both fit and active. However, being in my late 20's (and in a very happy relationship), it has become difficult to maintain my current weight and fitness level. I can tell that my metabolism is changing. Over the past year, (since recovering from a major knee injury) a few pounds have crept on here and there, 10 stubborn pounds to be exact. I have been having difficulty, ...
I guess you would say that I am lucky. I have never been over-weight according to nutritional (BMI) standards. My parents are both fit and active. However, being in my late 20's (and in a very happy relationship), it has become difficult to maintain my current weight and fitness level. I can tell that my metabolism is changing. Over the past year, (since recovering from a major knee injury) a few pounds have crept on here and there, 10 stubborn pounds to be exact. I have been having difficulty, for the first time in my life, getting rid of the excess weight. I weight more than I ever have. It doesn't make me feel good about myself. I want my self-esteem back. I used to run a little extra and a pound would come right off, but not anymore. I never had to watch what I ate before, but I am coming to understand that I cannot eat everything I want to anymore. I came here for help practicing moderation. I love sweets, but they no longer love me!! I see what a wonderful job people are doing on this site and I am motivated to follow in their footsteps. Thank you for all the help and guidance!!!

I can't do the Tae Bo every day, but it does make a nice change from walking all the time. It also helps build core & overall strength which I need if I want to climb again.

Thanks for the comment, dear! Believe me, sometimes you can't take things a day at a time, and you end up taking things an hour or a minute at a time. I've been there before. Think positive and you'll be positive, and good luck!

Thank you for the blog comment! You are so right about "kids these days" They are self-important and self-involved! They truly think that nobody out there could possibly be cooler than they are in their super awesome van BLAH. Anyhow I am feeling MUCH better today and I will not be deterred from my goals by a bunch of twerps in a van! Hope you have a great weekend :)
