I always seem to get close and then go back to my old ways. That has to stop! At the age of 32, I think I've finally realized a 5'0" girl cannot eat anything and everything! I have to really work just to get my calories burned for the day up to 2000. So, I must be conscious of everything I put in my mouth. I must make activity a part of my daily life. I must stop looking at this as a diet. I can never go back.
Everyone thinks it should be easy to change your lifestyle when you're single because I don't have to worry about anyone else. But it's not that simple. I'm not a great cook and the convenience of the drive-thrus have been a big downfall. Bars are my other obstacle. That's what my friends do. If I stop going out, then I become a hermit. I lose weight staying home, but I get depressed and feel like I have no life. So, the struggle for balance is on-going.
