|It's time to change those habits!|
It's time to be responsible and cut back on my portions and get more exercise. Why do I feel a sense of remorse and dread when saying that? Are we so conditioned to "have it all" that it follows we must eat it all also? Why is having "enough" not enough? Have American's weight problem gotten so out of hand because we are by nature greedy? More...more...more. More things...more money...more food.

When I was nine months pregnant with my son 40 years ago, my weight peaked at 135 pounds. I'd never been so big in my life! Never in my wildest dreams did I think there would come a day that I would love to get my weight back down to that weight. I'm realistic enough to know I will never be 110 pounds again, and that's okay. But it does feel sad to set a goal of being nine months pregnant.
I picked up a book today called "the Eat This NOT that diet" that I saw on the Rachel Ray show. It shows the best choices for breakfast and lunch at many restaurants, packaged foods and has many recipes. I like the comfort of knowing I won't have to stop eating out altogether or ignore certain foods completely. I feel ready and excited and almost feel my waist shrinking already.
