I am one of the many that looks at as may "diets" in whatever format i can. I read books, look at exercise videos, go to different sites, etc. if it sounds interesting or doable, and it doesn't cost me my retirement, i have probably bought it. following the plan???????????? NAH. i spent $ on it, isn't that enough? i am helping the economy. LOL
at the beginning of May (last month), i realized i had reached my breaking point with worrying about calories, foods, drinks, etc. I gave up on ALL of it. I want to lose weight, but i realize i want to be healthy more, mostly mentally. I am tired, literally, of CONSTANTLY thinking about calories, good and bad foods, portions, etc. so, i gave up on all that.
i am doing mindful eating. thinking about what i want, when i am satisfied, etc. it's amazing how much less i think about food and drink. i still have a ways go to, but my checking account isn't as light. I still have some sites that i have paid for, but once those current memberships expire, i will not be signing up.
I will be healthy by eating good food, stop eating when i am satisfied, and walking as much as possible.
THAT'S the next weight loss craze in my house, i can see it now. and it doesn't me extra $.
NOW..................what do to with all the books, DVDs, and websites? donate to charity? LOL
