Losing Weight

I don't care if you're 15 or 50, if you eat high calorie foods (or too much of the "right" kinds of foods" and sit around more than you should, you're going to gain weight.  That would be me.

I know how to eat. I know what to eat. I know how much to exercise. Do I do it?  Well, no.

It's time. We all know when that time is.  Whether our clothes don't fit as we'd like them to, or  we aren't feeling like we should or maybe there is a big occasion we want to look good for.  Whatever the reason, it's a good one. Losing weight will make you look better and feel better.

Enter www.sparkpeople.com.

This is a free, read that, FREE website on helping you with the process of changing your habits that caused you to be overweight. It is such a comprehensive website, dealing with nutrition, exercise, tips and tricks of all kinds and a daily update. It has a food and exercise journal and is well written for timeliness.

As they say, if you put a lobster in boiling water, it will scratch at the sides of the pan to get out. If you put it in room temperature water and turn up the heat, it will never know it's getting hotter. That's what a lifestyle change in weight is; getting used to small changes that make a difference. When you add them together, they can make a big difference. 

Here I go, off on this lifestyle change adventure.....
