Battling The Bulge
Gaining weight doesn’t happen overnight. It is a pound here and a pound there that adds up with time. So losing it isn’t instantaneous. It too takes time and determination. I have been overweight since the 60’s. I blamed the birth of my first, then my second, etc. etc. etc. foolishly. The fact is that I chose to become obese by eating–simple as that. It took me forty years to face facts. Now I am attempting to take control. Diet pills are not an option for me because of the amounts and kinds of medications I take. So instead I am counting calories, taking protein and vitamin supplements, and trying to exercise more. My doctors all agree this is the best choice for me.
