I hate to admit it, but I have gained weight, a noticeable amount, and I am having the worst time losing it. In my twenties, all I had to do was modify my diet slightly and get in some weekly jogs. Now, in my thirties, after two kids, it is a whole new ball game. I have finally come to terms with the idea that I have to make actual life changes to take this weight off and keep it off for good. However, even having accepted that idea, I also realized I need to be honest about what I am actually eating and how much I am really working out. I have been lying to myself about my daily habits and after tracking my actions with a weight loss program, I have finally been able to make real changes.
