The last time

Monday, October 10, 2016

The last time I was active on SparkPeople I had a very different life. I was single, no kids, my mom was alive and I had a long distance relationship. I was married to my job.
4 years later, I am married, 3 stepkids, mom passed away and I am in the middle of perio-menopause hell....
But besides my weight and my Mom, I am much happier. Unfortunately, all my stress goes into eating and drinking. I really hate my fat. It's time to conquer it.

I have been reading about a new method... it seems to make sense. The author claims that skinny people don't "diet". They eat enough calories to maintain their skinny weight. So.... I am going to try that, as well as giving up sugar most days. Sugar is such a trigger for me, that I cannot control myself around it.
In the past I have not been good about writing about my weight progress, nor have I been good about consistently tracking calories. Both are important.

Exercise is another challenge. With 3 kids (50% of the time) a husband and a more-than-full-time-job) the last thing I want to do most days is exercise. But I know how important it is.
So this is my new regimen. Don't make promises to myself I can't keep. 1700 calories is my new "skinny" caloric intake. Tell other people what I am doing. Exercise 3 times/week.
No sugar or white flour most days. (once a month a treat....)

    If you'd like to conquer your sugar addiction, I suggest the "I quit sugar" books or website. They have tones of amazing tips and recipes.
    You can do it!

    People that weigh the weight they should eat healthy, in moderation and move. They don't diet because dieting doesn't work. Never. Keeping a weight that should be for your body type is a mindset. It is also a LIFESTYLE. You just need to eat healthy, for life. And you must be also healthy mentally and emotionally before you try to transform you life to a better one. Best of luck, fredie
