I have to say that eating more veggies, fruits, and healthy foods is easier than I thought. I am feeling more energetic now that I have less processed foods daily. Plus as an added bonus I have lost 2.5 lbs. I feel that being busy all the time is part of why I lost track of how I was eating. This does happen to all of us but we need to be vigilant of this happening. It starts with a little something bad here and there and then it is out of control. The weight creeps on and we feel sluggish. The other thing I've been improving is getting adequate
The hardest part of having an overweight child is the moment you realize you helped create the problem. Don't beat yourself up - no one wakes up and says "I think I will make my kid overweight today". Make small changes with "babysteps". Try not to make a big deal about a number on the scale. If you start moving everyday and make small changes in your diet - weight will start to come off and self esteem will soar. You have the power to turn it around and head for a healthy new life!
Learning to read labels, portion size and moving everyday lead to our success. Our children need to be given the "tools" to succeed - we spent time reading labels in the grocery store and I created a kit for my daughter to help her with measurements and reading labels. It worked and she still uses the kit and has maintained her weight for the past 3 years! We lost a total of 160lbs together and created a fit healthy lifestyle.

It’s been awhile and I am happy to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! Today on this historical day, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on all the good that we have by living this great country! Oh the blessings: liberty of democracy, the ability to pursue our dreams…a country where we can choose our own president. That’s the true definition of freedom!
To win the "hunger " game you need to eat foods that fill you up but with the fewer calories. Food with protein and fiber. A New England Journal of Medicine study associated three foods yogurt,(Greek please) nuts and fruit with weight loss.. Yogurt and nuts offer protein. Fruit provides the fiber and water.
Food for thought.
