I said a few months ago that I would try to lose some weight.
So it hasn't happened.
So let me just say that yes, losing weight is very hard. I spent most of my life losing weight very easily and maintaining a low weight with almost zero effort. Yep, fast metabolism and lots of anxiety. It was nice. I knew it was nice (not the anxiety part, but the effortless skinny person part). Now I know how nice it was!
I'm maintaining, anyway. I'm consistently at 155 lbs. That doesn't just happen, either. I'm exercising and thinking about what I eat and trying not to overeat.
155 lbs is totally reasonable for my height, and I'm mostly at peace. I just don't want to climb higher, and it is taking real effort not to go higher!
We live with so much food around us, don't we? And as we age, our metabolisms slow down.
I keep reading books about people in other countries and times who didn't have enough food. We are so blessed to have food in our cupboards and refrigerator. I never have to worry about my kids starving.
It's a huge blessing. I just need to make sure I am wise about how much blessing I put in my mouth.
