I have spent the past few weeks tweaking my eating plan and ridding myself of the garbage I have re-included back into my diet the past 7 months. Whoops! My bad! You know the stuff that you know without a doubt is no good for you and will most certainly get you nowhere but fatter. It's no joke how that stuff creeps back in when you don't stay focused.
Anyways I feel at this point in time I have done pretty darn well at cleaning things back up and I am once again back in the driverís seat. So from this day forward January 5, 2014, my focus will be on Eating as cleanly as possible and losing more weight. What I mean by eating clean is choosing food that is fresh, natural, organic, fat food free and free of preservatives and other nonsense our bodies don't need. I find my body and blood sugar responds better if my overall diet is free of artificial products. So I will go with what works best!
Presently I weigh in at 258 lbs, initially down from a whopping 345 lbs. I have removed and kept off 87 lbs thus far. Although I have had my share of ups an downs and fall offs of various wagons and what not, I have not yet given up. It is simply NOT an option and never will be! My long term goal is to weigh in the range of 145-150 lbs for height of '55"which means I need to drop an additional 108-113 lbs to reach my end result. If I stick to what I know and remain FOCUSED it is very possible I can achieve this goal or come pretty darn close by the end of this year. Staying focused is the key!!!!!! So this will be my overall challenge for the year. Keeping my eyes on the ball so to speak.
I have decided to set my first goal for this year at 8 lbs within the next 6 weeks (Feb 15), allowing myself some lead way considering that at age 55 I tend nowadays to lose much more slowly than in years past. My primary form of exercise will be walking as well as using the WATP video. And when it warms up (praying its sooner than later) I will add Water Aerobics to my plan as it is easy on the old, previously damaged knees.
Happy Sunday everyone!
