If there were no scales

Friday, November 16, 2012

Man, Sometimes I wish this were true! I really hate the scale and the sense of all or nothing it gives me.

If there were none. . . this is what my Spark Coach is asking me to write about.

I would measure my success with how I feel about my body when I look in the mirror. How my clothes feel, how my endurance is for exercise. I suppose by the things I could accomplish. Mostly by NOT being self conscious about my body. This is what I really want. I want to be healthy and not be self conscious about what I look like.

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

use a salad plate as a dinner plate

use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal
