It is funny how we people are, when it relates to ourselves. I know perfectly well how to handle exercise, and nutrition; however do I practice what I know...NO! I need a buddy to help me stay honest with myself. I have had the fortunate or unfortunate lot in life, which ever way someone wants to look at it, to marry or live with skinny people and they have no problem staying skinny. Me that is another story, sad to say that I have taken in their nutrition which makes me fat and unhealthy.
My husband of 36 years could eat ice cream and pasta's daily and never gain a pound. He did not even exercise beyond playing golf. He did not get fat.
My daughter, the body builder, can eat pasta every day with lots of cheese, sour cream and butter on it and never gain a pound. She hates most vegetables, and eats ice Cream daily.
She doesn't exercise any more. She is in law enforcement and does have to be able to qualify with weight lifting, running etc. Occasionally. She wears a size 0 to 3 in clothing.
Now I live with her.
I am a diabetic and since moving in with her I have not been able to get my diabetes under control.
I was swimming six days a week however I did not see any improvement after three months.
So I quit. Besides seeing no improvement I got tired of going alone.
I just need someone to talk to that I can encourage and they can encourage me to keep on keeping on.
