Should I wait or lose weight?

For most of my life I have battled with my weight, trying various avenues to reduce my weight, with varying levels of success. Right now I am overweight, no getting around it – my husband says I’m not fat, just ‘chubby’. Any way you look at it, I could do with shedding a few kilos.

My dilemma is this. I know that with this condition part of it is weight loss and a challenge to keep weight on. I saw it with both my parents. Psychologically, I have an internal battle with myself in that I don’t want to be ‘chubby’ but also wonder if I should be overly concerned with registering higher than is ideal when I hop on the scales? Should I keep some ‘condition’ as it were, to give me a bit of a head start for if/when Parkies decides it’s time to lose weight?

I am trying for the most part to eat healthy. I am not constantly gorging on fatty foods. I’ve bought an airfryer oven, so that I am using less fat to cook food and trying in this way to reduce my intake. I try to eat more vegetables and fruit on a daily basis. But, I do admit to weekends when I enjoy an alcoholic drink or two and the odd donut (my favourite) or other sweet treat.

So, I don’t have the answer to my dilemma at this stage, so will continue to wage this inner war with myself. To lose or not to lose, that is the question!?

I work in health and have been with the same supportive team for over 7 years. They are all aware of my diagnosis and this helps tremendously especially while I get used to the idea of my diagnosis. My parents both had Parkinsons, so I guess my odds were higher than most.
