Not Making That Mistake Again

Sunday, May 20, 2012

What allowed me to succeed this time when I had battled obesity unsuccessfully for more than 5 decades? One mistake I made over and over was eating too little. I'd go on extremely calorie restricted programs. The liquid protein diet that made me the sickest was probably 300 calories a day. Others I tried were 600 calories; probably the healthiest one was 1000 calories. I definitely feel better and have more success when I'm eating in the 1200-1700 calorie range. It truly is a lifestyle, not a temporary-restrictive-punitive diet.

    It is indeed a lifestyle. Right now, I'm stressed out at work; but fitting in exercise is a priority and I've avoided food as a coping mechanism. So far, so good; we'll see how it goes for the next month or so.

    Good for you realizing that. I was lucky to not have that problem, as by my nature, I hate restrictions placed on me. I continously fight them. But now I fight to be as healthy as I can possibly be.
Here is to being fit and healthy and maintaining -just by eating good food and getting regular exercise!
You are doing it!!
