You know you may have gained
a little too much weight when...
This week I'm celebrating:
1) I spent most of the summer inside, hiding from the heat in the air-conditioning, and sitting at my laptop. It resulted in some weight gain... Now that it's cooler, I realize I have to change some things.
2) I'm going out for walks almost every day. I'm buying more vegetables, making salads, and cutting down on bread and sweets.
3) I hope to be able to scratch my chin with my foot soon.
Do you have a special tactic for keeping your weight in check?
