Relaxed and going forward


Tuesday, February 05, 2013

So here I still am Ė not following any extreme plan or putting myself through any pressure Ė I pretty well know by now what to do and what suits me. Guess that if I consider the knowledge Iíve accumulated here re food consumption and exercise Iíve not been wasting either time or effort over the past few years - nor encouragement received - thank you Spark and Sparkers! It would just be great for this finally to be the moment when I put it all into practice and become fitter and healthier - not only lose some pounds but keep them off in a controlled and less frenetic way than I usually go about things.
Iím not actually weighing-in yet because weekly weighing can turn me into that lunatic that I donít want to be. So Ė no obsession - no urgency right now and it seems to suit me. Iím happy with how I feel - healthier and more energetic - jeans fitting me comfortably - regular exercise - healthy food NOT accompanied by gallons of wine. Thatíll do nicely for now.

* I haven't weighed myself in 5 weeks. I know the feeling. I've been exercising and eating better. Clothes fit better. I totally hear what you're saying.

Major congrats on your progress!

    I like your attitude and plan.

Remember that there are benefits to drinking red wine. I also must share with you that simply the thought of comsuming "gallons of wine" caused me to emoticon

    I don't think that anyone but you can really say what will work for you. We each have our own tricks and traps that we use. Some will work all the time and some only work when we let them. Do what works for you.

Best of luck. emoticon

    all things in moderation Sonia, that truly is the way to go.
We're not here to enter muscle competitions or get ready for marathons (Although I admire those that do) my aim- as yours is-is to eat healthy keep a healthy weight and basicallu be supple enough to bend and tie me shoe laces
when I hit 80! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm hitting your page with another goodie in a min! emoticon

    Sounds like you've got it spot on to me - healthy eating, exercise, not too much wine. Slow but sure, one day at a time, one choice at a time. emoticon

The all or nothing approach usually burns out to nothing pretty quickly.! My OH is a typical Scorpio - everything to extremes. Left to his own devices to lose weight he cuts out everything slightly fatty, skips meals and misses out food groups and expects to lose several pounds a week. Then he wonders why he is irritable, tired and under the weather! emoticon 2 or 3 weeks and he's had enough and goes back to normal.

Since being on Spark I've had him on slightly larger portions but the same as me and he has lost 2 stones and is keeping it off for the first time in 10+ years. Yay! emoticon emoticon
