Nonna it is ironic. I really have to work at eating some days especially in the heat of summer. I had a long chat with my dr and a nutrtionist once. They felt a few things led to my obesity.
lack of movement ( lethargy from heat, anemia, and feet and back injuries)
stress (7 kids, 4 with special needs, bi-polar husband)
not consistently getting enough calories.
The last one shocked me. Basically they told me because I had so many kids and some so close together (3 in 3yrs) and breastfed for YEARS straight that my body was stuck in fat storing mode. And bad food choices just compounded that. And lack of consistent exercise.
Basically my body is just confused, lol. Exercise has made such a difference! And not nursing anybody (or being pregnant) for the first time in 7 years!
