Changing my relationship with food

I am 60 yrs old, 5'3" tall and weigh just around 9stone - so I'm in the 'healthy' range. My issue is less being fat, and more about my relationship with food.

I am learning to manage my behaviour around food with the NoS diet which is working well for me. Three 'proper meals' a day - no snacks, sweets or seconds on weekdays - with some freedom at the weekends and on special days like birthdays. Good old-fashioned regular eating pattern! My behaviour around food is being modified ...

Three 'proper meals' a day - no snacks, sweets or seconds on weekdays - with some freedom at the weekends and on special days like birthdays. Good old-fashioned regular eating pattern! My behaviour around food is being modified very happily with this system. So glad I found it. Check out the NoS team page if you're curious!

I want to be fit, supple, happy, healthy, full of energy!
I'm keen to be lean!

I've also noticed that a lot of my status updates are about the weather - very British!

For someone who doesn't work in an office, you sure are opinionated about them. emoticon
I like my desk. It's just the right size. It's ergonomic, adjustable independently for keyboard and monitor height. It's small so there's no room for clutter. emoticon
I sit and type for 7 to 8 hours a day -- not healthy. emoticon

I'm really struggling with NOTHING right now. I'm finding it hard to take five deep breaths. It's not just my mind wondering, getting off my breathing. I'm leaping out of my chair, or grabbing a book off the shelf. I failed at dinner, I grazed mindlessly. I'm going to try again tomorrow.

Gill, I always appreciate your insight and personal comments on my blogs and posts. Since you mentioned it, I looked back at your day 1 blog. I was right on with my comment at the time. Your list is impressively specific and telling, while mine is general and guarded. If I find the time, I'd like to take my notebook and make a list more like yours. Example:

-- I don't want to live a nocturnal 18-20 year-old lifestyle.

-- My search for Self is in conflict with my son's sense of place.
