John, over at Going Gently blogged this morning about his New Year Resolution
to finally shed some unwanted weight.
Like him, I stepped on the scales this past weekend
(I actually knew what I was going to see as present wardrobe is hugging
in all the wrong places.)
But was shocked all the same!
Time for action.
Sometimes you have to reach a certain place before the will is strong
enough to motivate.
Since 'discovering' exercise in my mid-30's (a while ago),
my weight hasn't varied very much.
But late 50's is presenting all sorts of physical and mental challenges
(see Jeanne at #$%%%! what the heck is her blog called?...Oh yes, now I remember,
Collage of Life's post today).
So...along with John, I am taking up the challenge of posting about my weight-loss adventure.
Being a woman though, I have no intention of speaking about numbers!
I will merely post Happy Faces!
1200 to 1400 calories per day of nutritious, mindful eating
(spread over three meals and two snacks)
Exercise 5 times per week.
No self-judgement, just positive encouragement
telling myself every morning:
and this...coming from a girl who loves everything about food!
This is going to be a piece of cake.
