The Ups and Downs of my Health Journey
Monday, August 19, 2013
I have been overweight most of my adult life and only once was able to lose weight to be within normal range for my height and age and that was when I was in my twenties. I have tried so many diets I can't remember them all. I even spent several years in therapy trying to figure out why I cannot seem to lose the weight. I have learned a lot along the way but still struggle with trying to live a healthier life.
I enjoy exercising but so often let life get in the way and then I don't make it a priority. I don't enjoy cooking that much and find that I tend to go for food that is quick and easy and that usually means it isn't that healthy.
I did really well the last BLC round but this round I have been struggling to find the right combination of exercise and eating that will work. I'm frustrated that my mind this round is just not in the right place.
On a positive note I'm still 60 pounds less than my highest weight and I know I don't want to go back to that weight. The older I get the harder it is to carry around the extra weight and now more than ever I need to make improving my health a priority.
I do know that I am not going to give up. I will keep trying until I find what works best for me.
