You need to make a commitment to yourself and your family to eat nutritious foods and get regular physical activity.
It helps to have a strong network of family, friends, and colleagues who will support you in your new lifestyle habits. Families can serve low-fat meals for gatherings. Your friends can limit drinks with added sugar and turn off the TV when your kids are playing together. Colleagues can go on short power walks with you and help you make healthier choices in the cafeteria or at the vending machine. Let as many people as possible know what your goals are and, hopefully, they will not only support you, but join you in your efforts. Maintaining a healthy weight is good for everyone!
