Healthy Choices

So Beth over at I Should Be Folding Laundry started the May Day Challenge. It is a four month weight loss "program" where many bloggers will set goals, share their weight struggles and successes, and offer each other support.

At first, I wasn't going to join in. Then, while in Nebraska, I stepped on a scale and realized that I could stand to loose 10 lbs. It's amazing how quickly the weight can creep up on you when you hit your 30's. I've never had to worry about my weight in the past so, as a result, I have very poor eating habits and a poor track record with exercise.

Seeing my increased weight on that scale got me thinking about what bothers me the most, my poor eating habits. I'm setting a very poor example for my son and if I continue, those 10 lbs. could turn into more!

So, I'm joining the May Challenge. I want the support, encouragement, and motivating influence of other bloggers to help me make healthy choices when it comes to what I put into my body.

If you haven't already, head over to Tales from the Scales and join in the challenge! If you're not quite ready for that, at least check out Beth's new site to read through the wonderful healthy eating tips she's sharing! I've already started using her suggestions on portion control.

Healthy choices - what a great way to look at losing weight! With that kind of attitude you'll have no problem making those 10 pounds disappear.

This I may have to do. I have had a weight problem since my last child was born...thyroids went wacky, etc... Thanks!

Good luck! I think it is true about what happens in your 30s! I used to be able to eat anything and not gain weight - now I've got about 5-10 lbs just hanging on!
