"For me weight is a real issue. It bounces up and down by 30 to 40 pounds. I have to be very vigilant because I'm one of those who eat more when stressed. I try to manage the pressures in my life by making time to relax and being physically active—I play tennis, walk, run, or bike—and I try to make healthy food choices (lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains). I like to think of food as something that nurtures me and makes me healthy rather than seeing my diet as restrictive."
