no change because I didnt change

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

ok - so here it is June 18 ----------------- I have made my mind up to see 130 on the scale for my 60th birthday. Would rather see no belly hanging over my waistband - but going to settle for that 130 number ( which has been a goal for awhile now).

Yes - Im turning 60 in 36 days........................ sometimes I find just the thought of that unbelievable. 60? The number doesnt bother me as much as the thought of how I thought that was so old - back when I was so young.

My life is ok - my kids are grown and doing ok ------ I have my basic good health - Im happily retired and enjoying that ALOT emoticon and Im financially secure and independent. I fight some mild depression but do a decent job keeping that in check without meds.
Ive let my gray hair grow out - the wisdom whites as they say - and I like the look. Most of my friends are busy dying their hair all sorts of colors that make them look so un natural. I used to ------------ not for me anymore.

But the body is clearly looking 60 ---------------- the flab where it didnt used to be - the belly bulge - and oh that dam cellulite. I can do better - and look better and so that is my "personal goal" for my sixties. AND I want to start my 60's being 130 pounds - if I can just get there - I will figure out how to maintain it. emoticon

I think I have found a friend who wants to take ballroom dance lessons with me. He is a little more advanced at dancing than I am ( a good challenge for me) and thats another thing off my bucket list. I love dancing.

OK ------------------- Im blogging this because I think writing it makes it real.
Now to do it................

    Nice this is a good start, you sound determined. You are right about writing it down too, it does make it more real. Tell your friends and neighbors too. The only thing missing here is how are you changing? I see that you are going to take dance lessons but is that the only commitment? What is the dance lessons are canceled for a night? Can you commit to a certain number of minutes each day for 6 days a week? What activities? Does anything need to be changed on the eating, maybe even smaller portions for a while? Or more fiber? How close are you to your goal? Maybe you do have all this figured out already and you don't have to put it in your blog or to tell me. But do put it in writing so that you can see it everyday. I wish you the best!
