Hi all- thought I would share here...
I have gotton away from dieting and try to eat healthy as we have discussed here. I have used WW in the past and it was just the thing.. esp to make me aware of portion size, etc.
Well, an old friend who lives in VA is about my age and has felt her weight creep up over the years and wants to go after it once and for all. And try to get back to some habits that will stick for life.
She went to a professional trainer and is on a vigerous excerise schedule. I am doing about 80% of what she is on my own, so am stepping up my exersie to match her program.
He also gave her an eating plan. Very specific. Measure those portions. I wrote it down and am going to do it with her. In a way it is a relief as I *know* it is all the BLTs (Bites, Licks and Tastes!) that are keeping my weight up!
Yesterday I cooked up my main protien source (chicken) and weighed and put it in packets I can pull out at mealtimes. It is all pre-planned, I don't have to think!
So, I have challenged myself to do this for a month... and see how I feel. Maybe I will get used to eating less and quit my maniac snacking habit.. we will see.
Wish me luck!
(btw, yesterday I followed it and really enjoyed it.. but of course that is Day One...)lol
