I have been on a very long, long plateau and worked half heartedly on breaking it. Seemed to not find the time to take care of myself as I should. I would stop what I was doing and eat on the run a lot of the time or just miss lunch altogether. I tend to eat a late breakfast and then a late lunch but when we are wintering with others in a resort, everyone tends to eat between 5 & 6 and then off to programs or activities that go until 9:30 or 10 PM. So meals get crunched together.
I have decided that no matter what, I need to get 3 meals and 2 snacks in each day. When I began this with lots of fresh from the tree fruit, I broke my plateau and lost the 15# (as of today) that I had gained over the past year. This is a SCALE victory for me!! I am going to continue to work at good eating times and walking more. The mobile home we just bought is a little farther from the clubhouse than our camper is so it will push me a little harder in the walking. And of course the moving into an unfurnished home with only what we have in the camper will add to some "stronger" activity than the walking. We are hoping to begin the move within the next couple days. I will fill you all in a little more later in the week! Watch for updates!!
Congrats on the weight loss, keep working at it. Yes you will be getting some heavy exercise with moving your funishings from the camper into the mobile home. Keep us posted Eileen. 1644 days ago
TXGRANDMA on the 15# loss! That is a huge accomplishment! I am a stickler for breakfast before I go to work in the mornings so when I work, I eat early and pack a half sandwich for lunch, so am really ready for our evening meal about 5 or so.
I know it is hard to stick to that when not working outside the home! Can't wait to hear about your move in to the new place, it is quite a bit further from the office than your trailer, it looks like! Keep up the good work! 1645 days ago
Keep working the plan - sometimes it takes a little time to remember how important it is to take care of yourself, but when you do then you can get back to spending some time on taking care of yourself.
Keep finding ways to get moving. Find other people who will be willing to take walks with you, play some simple games like shuffle board or ping pong that get you standing and moving, or whatever activities you enjoy. When you have others with you, it can keep you moving forward if you start forgetting how important you are. 1645 days ago
