How weight loss has changed my life...

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

Actually, weight loss hasn't changed my life. Except for being pregnant, I have never been more than about 15 pounds over my ideal, though unrealistic, weight. So why write an entry with this title? I know that I have the potential to be obese. I have watched many of my close relatives struggle with issues relating to being excessively overweight and I have vowed to myself to not let it happen to me. I love to be active, so exercise is a big part of my weight management. I run, garden, play with my children and I have energy to spare because I do it regularly! I also try to eat healthy most of the time. I don't always. I eat too many sweet snacks and desserts, but overall I try to do little things that add up to make my calorie intake reasonable. I watch portion sizes, make substitutions and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. The little things add up. I still have that 15 pounds that I am dealing with, but I keep after it. If the scale creeps up a few pounds, I take action to get that number back in my "range."
