Knitting a Better Me

Lost almost 90 pounds, with 110 to go! I can DO this! After 50+ years of frustrated attempts... Knitting even the largest and most intricate and beautiful items is accomplished the same as knitting the small, easy items--one stitch at a time. This is not a journey to weight loss; it is a journey about choosing life one day at a time.

"Don't take a clock on this journey, take a compass. It's the direction you're moving in that matters, not the time it takes to get there."

My Goals:
Improved well-being, and serenity in my life.

KEEPING IT POSITIVE!

Becoming a kinder, gentler, better me.

Building muscle and losing fat.

My Program:
Making more healthful choices, one meal at a time. I focus on whole foods, legumes, fresh organic produce, organic meat.

3 days a week I follow the simple 3-0-1 plan: THREE healthy meals in normal portions a day, NOTHING in between (snacks do NOT work for me!), ONE day at a time! I eat only within an 8 hour window, from 9:30am to 5:30pm and that's it.

The other 4 days per week I follow a hybrid but simple Intermittent Fasting/Interval Feeding plan that is also calorie and carb cycling. I am timing when I eat, not starving. Big difference.

IN IT TO WIN IT, ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Personal Information:
57 year old with multiple health disabilities and challenges.

I knit. I love to knit. I am an artist and I love color.

I love my furry, four legged animal companions dearly.

I share my heart and a home with my partner of 22 wonderful years!

Other Information:
Don't knock someone else's plan of eating. It has taken me years to finally find something that works for me! And if I hadn't done lots of experimenting all those years ago, and took copious notes of what did and didn't work, I wouldn't have finally found something that is really working for me for now.

"Don't take a clock on this journey, take a compass. It's the direction you're moving in that matters, not the time it takes to get there." I love your quote! So true . . . I'm going to tape this to my refrigerator so I am reminded everyday.
