    Over 40 and lazy

    In my teens I was active and fit. Then I became a mom and nurse. Over the years I have allowed my weight to balloon to over 200 pounds. I know everything I have to do to become healthy and fit, I seem to lack every ounce of motivation it takes to get there. I have a loving family that I am devoted to. Unfortunately, that leaves little time for myself. I am becoming more aware in my life that I need to take that time for myself and do what I need to do to become healthy again. The worst part is I feel so tired and run down all the time. I lack that motivation it takes to get up and get going. I need someone to help me get to that point and say "you go girl, you can do this."

    The Inclusion of Omega Fatty Acids in Our Daily Eating Plan

    Many individuals already know about the advantages of omega oils or these good fats must be added to a body-healthy diet plan. They help with improving the quality of our joints and thinking processes. Fatty acids consist of omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9, but the human body is not able to produce the essential fatty acids mentioned above.

    I just turned 45 and want to make sure I don't gain weight. It's been kinda hard. In the bad habit of over eating snacks between meals. No matter how healthy. I need to get out of this habit. I want to get out of this habit.

    You sound like a caretaker. People who prioritize other people's needs above their own. This behavior is developed in childhood and hard to break. Even just letting other people feel uncomfortable because you don't rush to take care of them may be difficult for you. My first suggestion is that you start to take notice of how other people take care of themselves. How they can say "no or no thanks" when offered food, how they leave the laundry for that extra day when they want to walk, how they put food in the crockpot in the morning so they don't have to cook when they get home, how other people walk at lunch and snack, how when asked to rush a job and work over lunch they say "sorry, I have a meeting at lunch but would be glad to do it when I get back" and then they go walk. these people are able to put their health first. It will seem odd and uncomfortable but try it.

    I can relate almost 50 and lazy motivation is tough at times.I have to cook for my family and they want sweets and I enjoy cooking,so of course I end up eating the sweets I make for them! I'm trying to drink more water and apples. It is a lifestyle change I know just keep slipping!
