I was happy today was Wednesday, that means 1 more day and I'm off again

Had an interesting conversation today with a friend who lost 100 pounds and tries to eat healthy and exercise every day.....We both decided that no matter how hard it is, being normal weight sure beat the struggle of obesity....
He is was younger than me, he is 30 and I'd say 5 feet 10, he eat about 2600 calories a day but runs 5-6 miles a day....He wonders how I can only eat 1300 cal a day, and exercise about 2 hours a day... I told him that's the privilege of being a 57 year old 5 foot women....
I don't need as much food, I think of food mainly as fuel ...I would not put 50 gallons of gas in my car that hold 25 gallons, the rest would go to waste..in our bodies case the goes to our waist...lol
any way it's really nice to have some one face to face to talk with and help keep me on the straight and narrow life style path I am traveling...

When I think about it, I feel satisfied most of the time, not hungry but not full..just right....and when those moments happen when I just want some junk food I try and think about 347 pounds walking up the steps, or trying to get in to the booth at my favorite restaurant....
that image comes back and zaps my desires for those junk foods I use to love to eat....
well enough for tonight...

have a healthy and happy thursday...

one more thing I wanted to add, when people say "is that all your going to eat"....I rely that's all my body needs, that shuts them up in a hurry....then just smile
