Inch By Inch, Anything Is A Cinch

100,000 Americans die each year of Fat related Cancers. There are very few cancers that excess weight does not contribute to. Listen to your body and get regular checkups.

I had an actual age of 66 and a real age of 70. With the help of this website I am taking that real age south.

I love this website and I have tried to wear it out. The single most important thing I do is to log in my food. I visit the food log at least 3 times a day when possible; and when it's not, I have a pencil/paper in my pocket to jot down what I eat. I Track, Track and Track. Track my food, Track my exercise, and Track those triggers that encourages me to eat.

ME TIME. The 2nd most important thing I do is schedule time for myself with myself. I put myself on my must-do list. This is the time I do my daily walking, meditation and enjoy the sunshine..

1/1/09 - New - Track weight daily. I have put a calendar in the bath to log weight in first thing in the A.M.

It takes good fat (mono unsatuated), MUFA's, to lose body fat.

Weight Maintance:

Exercise is even more important for maintaining weight loss than for taking off the pounds in the first place.

Successful maintainers of weight loss report continued consumption of a low-energy and low-fat diet. Women reported eating an average of 1,306 kcal/day (24.3% from fat); men reported consuming 1,685 kcal (23.5% from fat).
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
Your blood type may play an important part in the food program you should be consuming. I am an A+ and seem to function better on a higher vegetable diet.

Fitness Minutes: 10,976

My Goals:
Present Goal: To become more physically fit. Take that weight down to 180.

My Program:
Eat a balance diet of foods with many colors. Originally I was walking 5 days a week varying distance, time, and speed. Now I am doing a slow 2 mile walk practicing meditation. I started out using a modified Zone Diet (1400 - 1800) calories. Now I count calories making sure I get the good fats - flax, nuts (peanuts) and avocado (a little bit will do you good). Most days I brown bag lunch and snacks. Generally morning and afternoon snacks are pieces of raw fruit or raw veggies --- When it comes to the food I eat, I had to adopt the philosophy of Their Food & My Food. I don't eat their food (maybe a smidgen) but they can have all of my food they want. I now do more of the grocery shopping and the cooking. My wife (we have been married for 30 years) likes that.

Personal Information:
Unfortunately I am all to familiar with cancer. Mother, sister, 2 brothers and myself have all had it.

In April 2000 I had a kidney removed due to cancer. When the kidney was removed, the cancer was gone. I firmly believe it was a fat attack that alerted me to the problem. --- In December 2007 I had a radiation treatment on my left eye for melinoma cancer. I believe that my weight loss alerted me to this problem. When I told my Doctor this, he said a number of people had told him they did not know they had a problem until they started loosing weight.

Folks, cancer is tied to excess weight as is so many other health problems.

emoticon What a fantastic accomplishment! emoticon 13,408 people joined when you did three years ago, and I doubt few are still here. HAPPY THIRD SPARKVERSARY! emoticon

I'm reading the BECK DIET SOLUTION, which isn't a "diet" but she teaches how to THINK like a THIN person. (Got a copy from the library.) I recommend it to everyone. (We have a support team here at Sparks.)
-------------------
Walking for five minutes is better than walking for zero minutes. Exercise is essential even if I don't do very much at first. I can build up the amount that I do over time, but I have to start somewhere.
-------------------
Hunger is never an emergency. It is only mildly uncomfortable. I can tolerate it. It will come and go.
---------------------
I really do deserve credit for breaking old habits and it is essential for building my confidence. Once my confidence grows everything will become so much easier.
-------------------------
If I want to lose weight permanently, I can't make exceptions. I'd rather be thinner. I can't overeat on week-ends or any other time.
-----------------------
I have to develop the habit of eating every bite slowly, while sitting down, so I can fully enjoy it. It is worth developing this habit, so that I can have a lifetime of being thinner.
---------------------------------
I'm not going to let any minor setback ruin everything I've accomplished. One mistake doesn't ruin my diet, but falling back into old habits will.
I will recommit to my diet right here, right now!
----------------------------
Exercise is not negotiable for good health. It needs to be a daily lifetime habit and I need to make it so. The hardest part is getting started. I'll feel so much better when I'm done. So get started!
------------------------
OH WELL! I'm going to ignore this craving. I'm going to do something and let it subside. I'm turning my attention to something else, like exercise.
