I've been visiting my daughter and granddaughters for eight days now. Before my trip, I knew that eating right and exercising was the way to lose weight. But since my visit, those things have been drilled into my head. I hope I now have good habits to take home with me.
We've been walking for 20 minutes every morning. Consistency is the key. I need to continue walking when I get home and back to my hectic life. Being retired, I know I have the time. I just need the dedication.
I've learned how to eat better: several small meals plus several between-meal snacks each day. Each meal/snack should have some protein in it to keep me full. I've learned to love steel-cut oats and whole wheat peanut butter crackers. We've gone out to dinner several times where I've learned to portion control.
None of this is new, but now it's real. I've lost almost 3 pounds during my visit. Here's to better habits and losing more weight!!
