As I was talking to the clerk, he tried to sell me something that was much more expensive. He then started asking me about if I exercise, etc. Well, at the moment, no I do not, since we are in the middle of a move (I know I sound like a broken record); but since I've been back and forth here and there, I can't see me paying for a membership to a gym.
I miss going to the pool
This got me to thinking...thinking about is it healthy to be heavy? NO. But is it healthy to be thin?
me at age 19, the summer before I left for Idaho.
January in Idaho...brrrrr
That's me on the far right, 6 months pregnant with our fourth child.
I was able to get rid of it a little over a year after the fourth child, but it was so hard to keep it off. My weight has been up and down ever since. Now, I'm going through menopause, and THAT....is a whole other story.
Our four beautiful children
They are all grown now
We all know that those extra pounds can be the cause of many health issues, including diabetes, heart disease, inflammation, etc. Did you know that being too thin can also have it's health issues? Infertility, osteoporosis, and even diabetes are some of the problems underweight people can face. Did you know that thin people have a tendency to carry their extra fat around vital organs such as their heart? That doesn't sound like it would be very good for you.
I love a good healthy smoothie
