I will be 55 on the 23rd of this month April! .. and proud.. ok, until a few days ago.. I was just celebrating the anniversary of my 30th birthday.. over and over again..
But, so happy because I finally broke thru my plateau..
I was so stuck on looking at the scale on a daily basis.. that my personality for the day.. depended on what the scale read. So if my weight went up.. I was in a pissy mood all day.. the scale went down.. I was the happiest girl in the world for a day.
But, I went into depression and went to the doctor and found out , my scale went up and down.. because I'm diabetic.
So I had to do some serious research and learn what , how I can fix me.
I started reading all articles on here.. and realized.. I was paying so much attention to the calories.. I was ignoring carbs..and fats.. if I went over on my fats and carbs.. but didn't on my calories.. I thought that was ok.. but it wasn't .. it is what was holding me back from losing weight.. My BMI.. was 40.
So now.. I make healthier food choices..and truly stick to my guns about it.. I make sure I do eat my three main meals.. and I do snack in between but healthy snacks.. like an apple. and water.
I do workout 4 days a week.. I do zumba and kettlebell . awesome workout by the way. I also do weight lifting.. I have no regrets the next day..I feel so good.. because I know I treated me with respect and love.
My BMI in less then three months.. in fact I think in less then two months.. has gone down to 36.2 .. it has been I think 10 years since I was that low.. I broke my plateau!
So , calories is the last thing I look at.. I now look at my carbs.. fats.. proteins.. my food choices as healthy and if can find it and afford it.. (organic) and water.. water.. water..
55 is not so bad.. as long as I take good care of myself.. *
By the way.. I am a grandmother.. a martial artist and I will continue to study the art of martial arts til I'm 105. :)
