It is working for me now, even if at a snails pace. I count every clorie that goes in my mouth. The longer I do this, the more I learn about the power and expense of certain foods. This makes choice easier when I think, how hard to I want to work to spend this energy I am about to eat.
Sclaes are slow to move but the miror is howing some changes. Fat is slowly gowing away and I am not hungry, nor do I deny myself any cravings, as long as it fits in my calorie count.
I have added Core exercises in tiny amounts daily and feel the difference.

WOW, after a 5 year absence I have come back here to start a new journey. Weight loss and maintenace has always been my obvious goal. I accomplished Most of that in my first journey with walking all over the continent. I love walking and became obsessive about it. I still walk dailey and walk to places others might hop in the car and drive. I prefer wilderness settings but that is seldom possible except for summer.
THIS TIME I am focussing on what I eat. I am still active physically, but I never really held myself accountable for what I put in my mouth. Now, like clock work, I record it. I see it in print. I see the nutritional value. This is a real eye opener and I see what seems like a simple and harmless choice, like a slice of pizza, yields a lot of calories. Now part of my choice is whether or not it is worth it to me to poke something in my mouth. Don't get me wrong, if I want it, or if I am in a situation it is the polite thing to do, I just eat it, or at least a portion.

2009 was not a notable year for weight loss or new activity in exercises. But it was a New Year for becoming a grandmother to my son's first child, Miss Annabelle. This has been a joy. A walking buddy for sure. She has been strolled so many miles with a 5K at 12 days old. No marathon yet but 6 mile jaunts several times. She is a good sitter. She also like the night strolls under stars and the moon.
I hope 2010 sees me making a career move with more time off. I have so many things I want to do to uncomplicate my life. Fingers crossed and good choices I hope.

    I'm really glad you found your way back to Outdoor People! For a lot of reasons, but it's good to have another active fisherman (fisherperson?) in the group! I'm almost fanatical, although I never got any good at fly fishing.
    See you on "The Deck"!
