With Laurie’s body camp experience I thought I’d add a blog along the same line. Doing it means braving a subject that isn’t near and dear to my heart. Dieting! (Not to be confused with exercising) If someone would have told me I would even think about dieting when I was in my thirty’s I would have laughed at them. For years I fought to gain weight. One of the things I can attest to is; Be Careful What You Wish For.
So with that said, I have tried everything. Cutting back, hah! That might work but I look at a piece of pastry or a bag of chips or . . . and say to myself, “Just one bite.”
I’ve tried doing smaller portions by using a smaller plate and buying the packaged foods. I’ve tried, Weight Watchers and lost 15lbs. Atkins, again around 15lbs. Cabbage soup, I couldn’t stay with it long enough to lose anything. The last thing I tried was Nutra Systems and lost 22lbs. Now it’s creeping back on and I seriously need to do something or I’m going to be back to square one.
As I sit here and write this, it’s with resolve to keep ahead of those lbs. I may never reach my goal but if I shoot for it, heck what am I saying if I keep shooting for it, I hopefully can keep it down to at least where I’ll stay healthy.
And, I have a couple of questions. How easy is it to fall off the healthy eating wagon once a person has a secure seat on it? Will healthy eating eventually become a way of life or is this going to be a life long struggle?
Any and all comments are more than welcome. Especially if anyone has found the magic bullet.
