Day 79 - Live as a "Healthy" Person

Monday, October 19, 2015

Start creating an image of how you will live as a "healthy" person. Instead of aiming to be thin, consider using words such as healthy, fit, active, balanced, or strong. Make these lifetime goals, not just ones related to staying on a diet plan.

This has been what I have been doing for the last several years. I have lost weight in the past and when I was at goal, I went back to the way I had been eating before. I have decided that I have to find a way to eat for the rest of my life. This also includes exercising and living a healthy life. I have to do something that I can live with for the rest of my life. This will be how I am for the rest of my life. I eat healthy, get in exercise, particularly since I have had both knees replaced in the last six months. I need to exercise to make sure that I am remaining flexible. I need to lose move weight to make sure that I can remain as healthy as possible.

    Living a healthy life is more important to me. But, I tell ya, I am still struggling! Not sure why it is so hard for me to make those healthy changes you have made! But, I do know whatever I do I have to be able to do it for life!

    My husband & I joined Slimming World here in the UK in March & have both lost over 60lbs with a way of healthy eating we will be able to continue forever. Mind you it's taken us years & years to find it.
