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.

Thank-you dear Sir for stopping by my page! I see my life as a gift and I try to make good use of it each day. By the way, you are looking great in your latest photos. I

know that having my excess weight gone has helped me feel so much better. Yes, after the weight loss I couldn't understand why I still felt so terrible. My family also noticed I was getting 'fatter' around the middle even though I was getting thinner everywhere else. Well, I'm doing fine now and the is the main thing!

I see your previous visitor to this comment page is from my home town, although I no longer live there. All of my family does so I get all the updates on their miserable weather. Brrrr!
