I am an exercise buff. I have no problem getting up and moving around. Even when I am not actively exercising, I maintain an active lifestyle (at least at home) by cleaning the yard, cleaning the house or doing other activities. I have a lot of trouble sitting still, which is rather ironic since I have a desk job.
My biggest challenge when it comes to maintaining my weight is food. I love food. All food, but especially bread and sweets. If there is any fresh bread in the house, I've eaten it before it can get even a teensy bit stale. If there is any cake, forget it. I can't seem to moderate this eating habit, except to not buy anything that is bad. Unfortunately, even when there isn't any bad food in the house, I end up grazing and snacking until I am over my calorie limit for the day.
Basically, I want to be that person that eats healthy, has a few treats in moderation and learns to stop eating before their stomach becomes uncomfortably full. Nearly every day, there is at least one time a day where I feel stuffed. Why can't I seem to get past this?
