One more time

I've been yo-yoing for 20 years and the time has come to do something about changing my life. I'm ready and plan to start a running program this weekend. Been through Weight Watchers, Atkins and everything else in between. I am an American living in Germany and have four kids, a husband and a job! I need to take some me time without guilt.

I have been on SP now for about a month, and man, what a difference! I feel so much better. I don't even need my afternoon coffee any more! The fitness alone makes me happy. Let's see what the scale shows.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your thoughts. As you stated, "yo yo dieting" I can relate to that. I get up the steam and do well, and then fall off after I've reached a point - only to regain what I've lost.

The secret to maintainence is mindfulness, respecting food, respecting the self.

Now to put those things into action.

Enjoy your day over in Germany. 4 kids have got to be keeping you busy. Can you get them involved in food shopping for ingredients to make snacks each day? I find when a child helps grow a tomato, or shops and is allowed to pick out that tomato, then helps make a salad, actually slices a piece of fruit or vegetable, they are more inclined to eat it.

Can you make this a family affair? It works.

I have added you as a friend, and please feel welcome to add me, too.

in loving kindness,
Linda

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I definitely think that recognizing it is the first step, and I'm hoping that now that I've written it all out I'll remember the next time stress hits!

Cheers,

Mags
