The New Me

Daily Prompt:  Snack,

I love snacks.  If I had the chance to have a big piece of chocolate cake or a steak dinner, I would choose the cake.  It’s awful to go through life liking junk food so much.  It leads to so many problems.  Obesity, diabetes, back pain, foot problems… The list goes on and on. I am drawn to snack food like a magnet to metal.

Well after going on like this for most of my life.  I have begun to change my eating habits. It’s been difficult, but I have made progress and I am doing much better.  I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.

I wasn’t very active as a kid either.  I was clumsy and was terrible in gym class.  I couldn’t hit a ball or catch one for that matter.  I wasn’t a fan of sweating.  About the only thing I did was ride a bike.

Now I walk every day and I am healthier than I have been in years.  I have energy to enjoy my grandchildren and for that I am grateful.
