Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
I really, really, really wish I had gotten my weight under control before I was 25. People told me then how much harder it gets to lose weight as you get older, and while I can't say I didn't believe them, my belief did not translate into affirmative action.
I have been overweight to some degree all but about six months of my adult life, but I have DEFINITELY found it harder and harder to lose weight as the years have passed. The amount of effort which used to result in an average 1-2 lb a week loss for me now leads to just maintaining my weight most weeks, and it's so frustrating.
I am very fortunate that, so far, my weight has not had a real negative impact on my health. (Though it may be having one on my fertility; who knows?) Type 2 diabetes runs in my family on both sides, as does heart disease, so being overweight--no, obese--is serious business for me.
So yeah, I wish I had gotten serious about this a long time ago and gotten it under control.
P.S. I would be remiss if I did mention that today is MM's 37th birthday! He never reads this blog, but I thought I'd give him a shout-out anyway.
