The not-for-everyone weight maintenance plan

Saturday, November 24, 2012

I think I found the ultimate plan for weight control. It's pretty drastic and won't suit many but I'll share.

First, get laid off from a dying industry so you won't be tempted to find another job like it in another city. After all, you'll just get laid off there, too.

Second, go back to school to study a field that will always need employees

Third, keep moving in a your new career field at the rate of 3.5 miles per day minimum.

And voila, three years later I have found my maintenance plan

    Yay, glad it worked out for you in retirement, I see a lot of people struggling with how to handle maintenance plans in retirement. Wondering if you set goals for your health and fitness even in your retirement, Brenda?

    Step 1: That's what happened to me after being bounced back and forth from 2 different states for 4 years. Thankfully I had enough years with the company I could retire (they were getting ready to close our office AGAIN!!!). I was only 48 years old and had worked all my life since I was 12. I wasn't use to NOT working which brings me to....Step 2: My husband called from work and asked if I would like to go to work for his company part-time at something I had never done before (which I did). Quit there and went to work for the company that owned the building my husband worked for doing the same kind of work I was doing for his company. Quit there and here comes Step 3: Went to work as a self-employed Independent Contractor for about 5 years (give or take).

Finally decided I was ready to retire and found my maintenance plan.
