I think about how my additude about this has changed. I no longer think of myself as dieting but as changing my lifestyle. I am preparing food healthier and eating good snacks instead of junk. Now I grab a apple or fig instead of chips or cookies. I am slowly eliminating the wrong oils and ingredients from my kitchen as I replace them with canola oil and olive and different vinegars. This will be my way of life from now on. I want to lose the weight in a healthy way and develope good eating habits. I had always heard that, why did it take me 50 years to really listen?
I am down a size in pants now. Nice feeling. The weight loss is slowing down but I am firming up. I start my water arobics tomorrow. I am going to meditate before hand so I am full of inner calm. I can do this because it is good for me and will feel wonderful.
I am wishing I could get my husband to eat healthier. He eats the same meals as me but snacks on candy and I don't ever remember him eating a apple. However he is down 10 pounds since I started cooking differently. That is with his candy and rolls. Men, they seem to lose weight so easily.
