I have been trying to find the perfect way of eating where I will lose weight and have energy. I have to cook for my family who do not have a weight problem. I did not always have a weight problem either, so I worry about my children in the future.
Later in life, I
was very active and my mother did not do all the cooking. We started
trying more recipes and more fast food. I still keep weight off until
age 30 and then something happened. We moved to town and I think I
became less active. We were not eating healthy. That was also the year
my dad died. For several years I read about vitamins and healthy food
and added that back in my diet and was losing almost back to my normal
weight and lifting weights. I stopped the exercise and started gaining.
It went like that for several year and then I got married. Within just
the first 2 months of being pregnant I gained weight. That is the
weight I carry now. When I was pregnant with my son, I gained, but lost
all the weight and went right back to my weight I had been carrying
since the birth of my daughter.
Since the birth of my
son I have lost weight, but not much and it has taken a lot of effort to
keep it off. I am not gaining weight, so it is really not what I am
eating now that is the problem. The problem is to get this weight off
and not gain it back. Over the next few weeks I am going to come up with
a plan and try to stick with it for 2015, the year I turn 60 and try to
start my 60s in the best health I have had in years and to be able to
continue to be active through my 70s and 80s, and even look to being
active to 100!
