My Journey

So the first pic is me 10 months ago, and the second is me two days ago.

My journey has been to improve my health and diet.  And, lose a little weight in the process.

I've had a few questions about how I did it so here it is:

  • Over the period of the first month I reduced my meal portions down to half.
  • I increased my water intake.
  • I decreased my soda intake by 80% -1 soda to four bottles of water.
  • I also replaced my full sugar Cherry Coke with Cherry Coke Zero.
  • I reduced my overall intake of sugar and fat but DID NOT cut them out.
  • I treat myself when I choose to knowing the potential effects.
  • I also started walking 3 x week.  At least 4000 steps at a time which equals about 2 miles.
My journey has been satisfying and surprising.  I have been surprised at how the changes to everything have actually been pretty minor AND I am not desperate or feeling deprived.

Blessings all.

Hey WonderBear - congratulations !

I wish I could reduce my alcohol intake and get me arse up walking, but for whatever reasons it does not seem to work.
So the more I am happy for You to have worked on all this : You look great !
Keep it on darling, I am at least trying to follow your shining example !

(I'm 53, and believe me, after fifty it doesn't get easier with shedding those love handles ...)
