I feel like I need to do something with myself. I am fat. Blah. I get in phases where I let myself turn into a cow. I want to eat right and exercise in theory, but in reality it seems like entirely too much work. Honestly, I feel like I eat a fairly healthy diet. We eat lots of beans. We love brown rice. We use whole grain pastas. But I definitely have a problem with portions. I like to feel FULL when I finish eating. Additionally, I love baked goods (actually, I love anything sweet). I usually make a dessert of some sort every week. Lately it has been cupcakes, but I also love baking cookies and brownies. I tell myself that it is okay, because they are made from scratch, with no high fructose corn syrup. But I know that I shouldn't be eating all that sugar.
To make myself feel even worse, I decided to check my BMI. I am in the overweight category. BOO! But at least I am not obese - right? Yay for only being kind of fat!
Now comes the hard part. How am I going to alter my lifestyle to lose weight?
I feel like I have written this post 100 times before. This cycle of losing and gaining weight has been a part of my life since my early teenage years. And sadly, I think it will always be a part of my life.
