~No More Diets For Me~

Monday, January 30, 2012

Today my daughter asked me if I was on a diet, and I explained to her that I am no longer going on diets, that I want to live to see 100 and in order to do that I need to live a healthier lifestyle. I always figured I could go on a diet for a few months and lose a little weight just so I could go back to eating the same way I did before the diet and gain all that weight plus some back again. I am sick and tired of the up and down numbers. I want to be able to go in my closet and pick out anything I want to wear that day, instead of saying oh no I can't wear that because I stopped dieting so them jeans don't fit me anymore, so I guess I have to go another diet.

I will NEVER again go on another diet!!! I want to be able to get down to 160 pounds and maintain that weight for the rest of my life, unless I see fit to lose a little more. I want to have fruits, vegetables, lean meats and lots of water be part of my daily eating plan. I am not looking for perfection, but most definitely progress and I am definitely on my way.

    It's so awesome when the switch goes on and we realize that we've been fooled all these years by the big foodies peddling their wares. REAL food..which by the pretty hard to come by helps us by providing the nutrients we need to give us the energy we crave and the fullness factor we always seem to be chasing.

    Good for you in your new journey, I'm cheering you on! emoticon

    I've been (mostly) eating three meals a day (mostly fresh, whole food) with no sweets on weekdays and free eating on weekends for two years. It's a great way to live and has gotten easier. I'm pleased and don't plan to change. I've lost about 25 lbs. without much exercise. I still find myself looking at a diet once in awhile but it doesn't take long before I think I don't wanna and I don't hafta. emoticon
