As I said yesterday, after having discussions with my other half yesterday over Fish & Chips.
I have revised my plan. I am not going to be consummed
by battling for an unrealistic weigh loss.
Ok I had wanted 60 by 60 but didn't get it.
Now my priorities have change, yes I want to lose the weight,
but more than that. I want to feel healthier and fitter,
I know healthier and fitter go hand in hand with weight loss.
It might seem like I am ducking out, I am not.
I am changing my plan of attack.
While we were walking around Southport yesterday,
I was struck by the amount of elderlywomen out shopping.
More than half of them overweight and needing to use a walking stick.
I went into a shoe shop and I looked up from the pair of shoes
I was admiring and looked around.at that moment there were
25 people in the shop, 5 were men, 4 were sales staff
the rest were white haired women of a certain age.!!
With the exception of 2 teenager's who were with a
lady a assume was their grandmother.
It was this that made me aware of the increasing
number of elderly people in the world now.
I have known since childhood that Southport
is a popular place to retire, but it hit all of a sudden yesterday...
I AM a pensioner....I could be one of those retired ladies.
It scared the living daylight's out of me!!!
So, pardon me for wondering off...it's my age you know...
I need to re-focus, I need to get stronger and fitter.
I need to colour my hair!!!
So My New Plan
1. Keep moving.
Get back into my walking, Wii Fit and the Gym
2. Eat healthily.
The word DIET is banned.
We are eating healthier foods from today.
3. I will weigh in weekly until Tammy's Challenge is over.
Then I will weigh in on the first Saturday of the month along with my man.
There will be NO moaning or whinging about loss or gain.
4.Colour my hair, vanity it is yes, but I am not ready to look like a pensioner yet.
I have change my ticker tape and put on a goal of 20 pounds.
I am not giving myselfa time scale in which to lose the 20
and when I get there if I feel I need to lose more
I will re evaluate the situation.
I realise with this change of direction I may lose some followers
and if that is so Que sera, sera.
I have to do this for me,
I am tired of chasing pounds and ounces,
checking calories and fat content.
For me the most important thing now is to
enjoy my food,
enjoy my life,
enjoy keeping mobile
and exercising my brain,
my mind and my body and soul equally.
Life for me right now is FabulouS.
I have my darling husband and we are happier than I ever dreamed I could be.
I have my wonderful children and amazing grandchildren.
I have my fantastic BezzyMate Trish and many other friends that I can now enjoy.
This was not always possible in my previous life (Before Ralph)
I have my health, Diabetes is well under control.
I have my little nutter of of a dog Titch.
I have our little Shoebox.
I have my new crafting shed.
I have my job, part time becomes on Monday.
I have my Blogland friends, who are an amazing inspiration for everyday life.
I have my renewed faith in the Good Lord and I thank Him every day for the blessings listed above.
This new chapter in my life is going to be about the JOY of living an authentic and honest life.
