I've been wondering lately how to discuss my time on spark or the changes I'm making in my eating habits and level of fitness with my daughters. I am currently overweight and am trying to lead a healthier lifestyle now, and we certainly have always talked often about the need to make healthy choices and be active. From a young age, i've tried to help them understand how yucky they feel after eating too much sugar or watching tv all day and why we don't drink soda and theyve taken these messages to heart. But I am keenly aware that they are young girls not too far from adolescence, and I don't want them to develop body-image issues or grow up preoccupied with weight loss. I spend time on spark and they want to know what I'm doing, why I'm keeping track of what I eat, why I'm doing it and if they should too. I explain the healthy lifestyle angle, but the other truth is that I simply weigh too much.
How do you talk to your girls (or boys) about your own weight and/or weight loss?
