    I plan on eating lots of vegetables and fruits so I can lose weight. I am doing exercises that I started yesterday and plan on eating right. I will have a small portion of red meat once in a while. But, I will cut down on my starches. I am 69 years old so I know it is going to take a while to lose the weight I have gained, but, I am determined that it will come off. I think determination and having a good outlook on life is the best way to go about eating healthy and losing weight.

    Judy Hunter says:

    I’m pretty carb sensitive. When I overload I usually find that I gain water weight first and then start to put on the pounds. So, I’m getting back on the regulated carb count and getting the body fat reduced. Cutting out sugar and limiting bad carbs improves my overall health as well as appearance. No sugar really helps the achey joints stop hurting. too old to be lazy any more. My laziness stopped last night.

    We are going healthy as a family! As a family not only will we have each other to lean on in times of wanting to give in, but it gives us a reason to be more active as a family. We all love salad. People are amazed when we go out and our 7yr old daughter orders a salad over fries. However as much salad as we eat a nice salad bowl and serving spoons is something we lack. My daughter loves to be in the kitchen and something like this would motivate her to want to make healthier dinners with salads or dinners as salads. :-) We also plan on spending more time outside as well as home grown veggies!
