Well everyone February is upon us. . . . the time when resolutions to get healthy have often been thrown by the wayside. During my pregnancy with our daughter I gained 68 pounds. After she was born I lost 35 of those dreadful pounds…… and over the course of the last five years I've slowly but surely put on 20 more. Sadly, you can only convince yourself the dryer shrunk your pants for so long.
My husband and I have both committed ourselves to a healthier lifestyle. We've cut the junk out of our diets- except for the occasional "splurge" and we are making healthier choices and moving more. Needless to say he has lost 25 pounds and I've lost 11. (My life is a Slimquick commercial) I want to slap him a little. Don't get me wrong- I'm glad it is coming easy for him, I just want it to come easy for me too. Imagine if you will an angel perched on one of my shoulders encouraging him onto his goals…… and my inner devil on the other whipping up a batch of his favorite goodies. Sigh.
No matter what you struggle with old habits die hard and permanent life changes are rarely as easy as we would like them to be. What are your health goals? Maybe you've pledged to quit smoking, cut back on a certain weakness, or simply move more in 2009. Share your secrets to success OR commiserate with us here.
