My will is weak and mexican food rocks

By February 20, 2012 - 8:12pm

I'm trying to diet and eat more naturally. I don't know how to say no to food and what path to actually take to start a more healthy life. I'm the heaviest i've ever been in my life and I want to have a baby soon but I want to be healthy before I do this. I buy healthy food but I waste a lot and I just feel like a failure.
Any tips or tricks or even a pep talk?

Hi stephaniedowns,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Along with eating healthy, it's also important to exercise. Although people often focus on diet when they're trying to lose weight, being active also is an essential component of a weight-loss program. When you're active, your body uses energy to work, helping to burn the calories you take in with food you eat. Especially if you want to become pregnant. If you're overweight, your risk during pregnancy is higher for things such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

Here are some resources that might be helpful
