Not Dieting, Taking Care of MyselfI have always been overweight, since I was a kid. So when people say "i just wish i could get back to the size i was when I was in school or college, etc" I don't understand this. I have gained weight since college but when you start out overweight, it doesnt seem to make a huge difference. I have worked for a long time to really love myself and I have accepted my overweight body (for the most part, I think everyone has those "fat days" regardless of how thin/big they are). I have started trying to take better care of myself, instead of trying to "lose weight". I try to go for a walk at least 3-4 times a week and I have been cooking for myself which means more fruits and vegetables and good fats and not so much crap food! I am still overweight and I probably always will be but I am feeling so much better lately! So energetic!!
