    Do it for yourself, maybe for the children, or your grandchildren. I’m cheering for you.
    Do you have friends who never struggle with their weight? They look at you like they don’t understand why you do. This is the third time I have lost this weight and gained it back.

    The older I get it seems that just to look at food and the pounds pile on in all the wrong places. I get discouraged when I have to log in every single thing that goes in my mouth. It is so much easier and cheaper to eat foods that are not so good for you. Just grab and go with it. Ha-ha.
    The only thing about that is…it is not a good idea. Understanding what it takes to be healthy, especially, during a pandemic is very important. Even on a shoestring budget there are things you can do to help yourself. Being informed is important. Teaching your children about healthy eating when they are young is really giving them a gift of life.
    This topic can get very scientific, but I’m not a scientist so I will keep it simple. I’ve been the vegetarian, tried vegan, and even the boxed foods you get at your door. No counting calories with the latter, but not sure my shoestring budget would handle that. I’ve decided to take a Nutrition Course to better educate myself about the principles of having a balanced diet. My doctor has encouraged me to follow a plant based/Whole food diet.
    I’m learning that it is not just about losing or maintaining your weight, but also about the nutrients you put in your body for optimum health. If you are like me sometimes you eat for reasons other than hunger.
    It may be emotional, convenience, habits, cultural, and more, but we tend to eat more than what our body needs. This can lead to weight gain, which can lead to obesity and other medical concerns. In my family history there is Hypertension, Cancer, and Kidney Disease We know these things about ourselves and we’d hope that it would encourage us to make the changes in our lives before these diseases are carried through to another generation. In order for that to happen, we have to start with ourselves.
    It seems like one of the hardest things to do is to change human behavior. Especially when it concerns food. I know. I am right there with you.
    Take baby steps. That’s just choosing a quick snack of veggies over a candy bar or passing up on drinking sugar filled soda and get water with a sugar free mix. Everyday is a new day for me to do my best to eat the right nutrients that will give me optimal health. I have to tell you it’s not always easy, but everyday I get a chance to try it again. I am happy to say that my doctor has taken me off my cholesterol medication because of my efforts. Each day just put your best effort forward. Do it for yourself, maybe for the children, or your grandchildren. I’m cheering for you.
