Because I don't like who I've become.
When I was young, I was really active. I was disgustingly, effortlessly thin. And not just thin, for a lot of my youth, I was skin and bones. I was one of THOSE people. And? I ate like a horse. Mainly, growing up on a farm, I was just really active. I walked an hour a day after school because I was bored. I curled competitively in the winter. I chased dogs and cats, climbed trees, lifted bales of hay, helped Mom in the garden and the greenhouse and generally did NOT spend a lot of time on the couch. I tried every sport in school because they were offered, so why not? I wasn't good at many of them, so I settled for curling which I was good at.
But I was a healthy, active teenager. Then I went to school and got lazy. Once away from the farm, I had no reason to be active anymore, but I still ate like I used to. I need to reverse that.
