I've always been an "eater", a late night eater at that with a fondness of sweets and full on heavy meals. Sometimes I eat 2 dinners. Terrible I know. Some people diet via healthier eating but I've always have trouble limiting my intake because I am so in love with food so in the past I've always used exercise to maintain my weight and it worked well for me. I used to run 5 miles 7 days a week. Unfortunately I injured my foot and have been unable to run for the last 6 months and now I have gained 10 pounds which is equivalent to about 10% of my total body weight. I feel incredibly unhealthy and gross. For someone my size, 10 pounds makes a significant difference and now, I can't even fit into a lot of my pants. =(* I can visually see and feel the extra jiggle on my body, not to mention I have serious muffin top now and it hangs unattractively over the ledge of my jeans. I've taken to wearing sweats instead. My foot still isn't healed yet and walking is still painful so it doesnt look like I will be running soon. If I could only control my munchies.
