Thirty-Something Metabolism

Pin It Now! I always thought my metabolism would be as high as the sky. Folks said it would slow down someday, but someday seemed a million miles away!

Someday is now.

This is the first time in my life that I am going to have to carefully watch how much I eat. That's just no fun. I do have an overall healthy diet, but I like to graze!

The days of being able to scarf down 6 pieces of cheesy, pineapple pizza or snack on a 2 lb. bag of M&Ms are history and have been for a few years. Metabolism has finally started slowing down, and I suffer major consequences for being a pig. Those sneaky, little consequences come in the form of inches and pounds. And thanks to my genes, all of those inches and pounds like to huddle around my middle. I am sure having 3 huge babies didn't help my middle matters either!

Gazing in the mirror a while back, I noticed something. Muffin tops belong on muffins and spare tires belong in trunks.

In reality, I really only need to lose about 5-7lbs, and that is easier than the inches, in my opinion. If only I could suck out the inches in my waist and wrap them around my knees or calves. I am looking pretty flabulous right now.

Well, I don't want to let things go any further and get out of hand, so I am doing what I do best. I am taking charge and saying no to too much food!!! Guess I will have to run up and down the stairs a few more times during the day and force myself to do a few sit-ups. Lack of funds ought to help with the "too much food" issue, too!

I have done a good job this week, so I am giving myself a pat on the back!!
