If you are over 40 like I am, chances are you are dealing with unwanted weight gain.
As we age, our metabolism slows down and our weight can creep up. It is more important than ever to get some type of exercise and eat a healthy diet.
I will admit that I have tried several weight loss diets as I attempted to deal with this weight gain.
However, even though I lost weight, in the beginning, it always came back and soon I found myself in the yo-yo dieting cycle
What finally worked was taking a hard look at what I was eating and changing my diet habits.
I didn’t make any drastic changes such as cutting out a specific food. Instead, I controlled my portions and disciplined myself on sweets.
I will admit right up front that I have a strong sweet tooth, so this was one of the hardest parts of stabilizing my weight.
It’s taken time, but my weight is good now and I am in the routine of exercising at least five times a week for 30 minutes.
I don’t run nor do I lift weights like a bodybuilder. Instead, I walk and lift some light weights.
