Reasons to enjoy flabbiness

It turns out that being thin is only one factor that contributes to healthiness. And just because you are thin, doesn't mean you are healthy. No matter what you weigh, the important thing is that if you exercise regularly - 30 minutes/day - and eat lots of fruits and vegetables.

Today I am on the healthy bandwagon. I have a breakfast meeting and then I will go to the gym, go to two more meetings, and stop at the farmer's market on my way home. I did not exercise yesterday nor did I eat right. I had nachos and a glass of wine for dinner while I caught up with an old friend. But I had a salad for lunch so some how those should cancel the other out.

Yes I am trying to lose weight but aging, post chemo, post hysterectomy it gets harder and harder. But the scale is going in the right direction (but seems to have gotten stuck at one number for a while now which is why I had a salad for lunch yesterday). I do go to the gym three times a week and one day a week I try to go for a long walk with a friend.

Exercise is definitely very good for the body and a way to keep the body stay away from excess fat and keep the blood circulation proper.Also chronic diseases bring in some mental depression which is well handled by exercising.
