At the beginning of the year 2010, I was in Canada till mid April. I did start the year weighing 159 lbs and by June 1st I weighed 167.8 lbs, despite the fact that I did continue to exercise, but I did not necessarily keep track of my food that carefully. I needed help at this point because the weight was simply not coming off. A friend of mine told me about this way of eating which is called Chrono-nutrition in which you eat certain types of food at certain times of the day. Wow, within a couple of months I lost the weight I had put on and presently I weigh 148.28 lbs. In the same process, I have also lost over 36 inches since the very beginning. I am happy with my progress to date. However, of late, I have NOT been keeping to this way of eating and the weight is a bit stagnant. I do need to kick some butt just about NOW!
In 2011, I will continue with this regime and continue with my exercise routine and will reach my ultimate goal of either 120 or 110 lbs. I say 120 lbs because it all depends on how I look and feel at 120 lbs. If I feel good and healthy at this weight, I will remain there. At 62 years old, I do not want to look too thin. It is not recommended to go too low because a little bit of fat looks good on the face and also works well for the body because it works as estrogen. 2011 will be a good year for me and I am not giving in.
On this journey, I have discovered that I do love weight training and of course, I love to cross train also. Exercising is now part of me but I still have to work on the food intake… I still make some bad choices from time to time.
I wish you all a Happy New Year with tons of success!
