Like many people, I have an on-again-off-again relationship with healthy eating. I am only slightly into the “overweight” category, according to my Body Mass Index, and my doctor has advised that I try to lose a few pounds… really, about 10 would bring me within my healthy BMI. Most of us don’t have chefs and personal trainers on call 24/7 (I’m looking at you, Oprah), so any weight loss can be a challenge. In the first year I was doing well, only to have Thanksgiving/Christmas/All-Inclusive Vacation/New Years foil that in one fell swoop. While I didn’t go all the way back up to my Wedding Weight (I was actually my absolute heaviest around that time, just what every bride wants!) I had almost undone everything I worked that year to achieve.
This year, I vow to not postpone doctors appointments because I didn’t do as I was told.
I vow to fit exercise in once a week, then twice a week, then three times a week, until I am doing it all the time.
I vow to find healthy non-allergy foods to fill my snacking habits with.
I vow to take my heart and health seriously.
