I thought there was something wrong with me as I was quite active and ate healthily - no sweets, pop or fast food: WHY WAS I SO BIG?

Even if I have a bad day where I do end up ordering pizza, seeing the sky-high calorie intake really spurs me on not to give in next time.

When brushing my teeth, or washing my hands, I kick my legs up so my knees are even with my chest. I do this for 2min when brushing my teeth, and while singing the ABCs when washing my hands. It may be little, but every bit counts!
