Develop healthy eating and exercise habits that I can stick to for life.
I went to see Dr. Fuhrman taping his new PBS program "End Dieting Forever!" and was inspired by the research he presented (some new, some older) about the connections between food and health, and also by the testimonies of some of the people present in the studio audience and in his new book, "The End of Dieting." My goal is to follow his plan and get down to my goal weight -- which is around 135 -- by the time I graduate in June 2015. Actually, I think I can do it by sometime this fall, which would be excellent. So I'm eating right and exercising more...stay tuned!
