My own diet


 Summary:

My diet is simply based on eating several small (key word small) meals a day. Try to make them at the same time, i.e., 7am, 10am, 12 noon, 2pm, 5pm, and don't eat much later than 5pm. Take good "natural vitamin" supplements as you can tolerate them (some people can't) and work out as tolerated at least every other day. Walking on a treadmill every other day works best for me. Limit the amount of bread, sugar and fat, but don't "deprive" yourself of them altogether because that, for me anyway, leads to going overboard eating them when I get to the point where I simply have to have them! Simply put: moderation in all things! This makes for a slow, steady weight loss which is what I'm committed to.

 How To Follow My own diet:

Slow, stay the course! Keep a diet journal. Tell yourself what, why you may have gotten off course! It's always good to have "diet buddies" to share things with, but, ultimately, YOU live with YOU. And you can be totally honest only with YOURSELF when you really get down to it. Remember that it may take 9 or 10 months or longer to get where you're going, but at the end of that time, you may as well arrive there thinner because arrive there you will! Take it a week at a time; weigh only once a week or less.

Retired after two 'careers'; spend as much time outside planting 'stuff', including trying to raise veggies as I can. Husband handicapped and recently opted to remain in wheelchair -- VERY demanding. Please pray for me.
