My goal is to lose 20 pounds. I have no time frame and I know I need to make lifestyle changes, not D-I-E-T.
I could tell you that I need to lose weight for my health, which is true. But the real reason is that I want to look better.
I have been struggling with this for awhile. I've tried lots of things.....eat less, no second helpings, use a smaller plate, get more exercise, cut out sugar, eat low carb, etc. etc. etc.
My husband has done Weight Watchers in the past and it works for him. I tried counting points ( but not going to meetings) and I just couldn't seem to stick to the points. I think somewhere in my head I am still that slim girl that can eat as much as I want....so I cheat on the points.
I believe to succeed I must increase my exercise and that is a challenge. I have foot problems that limit how much walking I can do. I do have an elliptical machine that I don't really enjoy but it doesn't hurt my foot as much to use.
I know I will never have my pre-menopause body back and this will be a work in progress. I hope sharing this will keep me accountable.
I have one goal for this week.....use the elliptical every day. No excuses!
I will keep you posted.
Til next time,
