The Merchant's Wife by Boris Kustodiev, showca...

My wife really is a weight loss superstar; at least in my eyes anyway. She has struggled with her weight for years, but in the last few months she has managed to bring it right under control. I’d love her just the same no matter what weight she was; it wasn’t like she was that heavy. It is great to see her so happy and confident though, and this time it seems that she really will keep her weight under control. I’ve seen her try and fail before, but there really is something different about this current attempt.

In the past my wife has tried one fad diet after another. She will also go on these fitness frenzies where she will work really hard for a few weeks, but then end up getting injured. Her recent attempt though at losing weight was a lot more controlled; instead of just cutting down on her food or overdoing it with exercise she has instead made life changes. She has made a few changes to her diet, and just goes for a walk in the evenings. Her progress losing the weight has been slower than other attempts, but she has now reached her ideal weight. In the past when she hit this magic number she would return to her old ways, but this time she is just continuing with the current life changes and it now seems to take no effort on her part.

My wife has done well, and hopefully there will be no more worry about her weight. As well as making her more confident it is probably going to be better for her health. She has been a great inspiration for me and although my weight isn’t a problem she has inspired me to make other changes in my life – including giving up coffee.

I think that my wife is a good example for other people who are struggling to keep their weight down. She is proof that you can make it work even if you have failed many times in the past. The secret isn’t anything to drastic or any type of fad died or fitness regime, but instead the way to do it is to make simple changes that you will be able to keep. I think some people do worry too much about a bit of extra weight, but if losing it can make people feel better about themselves I suppose it’s worth it.
