I struggle with my weight as well. I'm built like a tank, so when I gain weight, it looks like I've gained 5 pounds to every 1. So, I try and walk the dogs more. When they play, I run around a little with them. I vary my workouts. I try to do yoga at least 4 times a week. I do zumba ab workouts a few times a week. I dabble a little in bellydancing. I go for a hike. I go for a swim. I've found I hate running, and I hate anything that involves repetitive things or normal person exercise equipment. When I still owned a horse, that helped a lot because of chores and riding consistently and such. When I move back to MI, I plan to volunteer at a barn or something for feeding, helping in the summer with getting hay, mucking stalls, and maybe even exercising horses. Maybe you could do something like this with something you enjoy? Like, volunteer at a local shelter walking dogs or cleaning kennels or something? I've been trying to improve my eating too. It is definitely a slow change. I, like Linds, have found that Pinterest helps a ton because it has a lot of healthy food alternatives to what would normally be unhealthy. Like cauliflower pizza. I still admit to having a MAJOR Pepsi addiction. Have to have 1 can a day... It's bad. I have major erosion in my teeth along with cavities.
