Putting Myself in Charge

A few of my mantra's:

You have to eat small to be small. If you eat large, you will be large. Small portions and everything in moderation!

It's OK to make me a priority in my life.

I will NOT take orders from a cupcake.

I will become the healthy person I am capable of being.

It's up to you Bonnie, what do you want?

Choose your path, healthy or unhealthy. It's up to you.

Thank you for your comments on my blog. The blog was written on behalf of all older members and those younger ones who one day might be in the same situation!!
I feel that the site serves a valuable purpose but that a lot of the people who it could really help are being frightened away by the problems caused by the changes. After all the fact is that the more members that belong to the site, the more money can be charged for advertising and the longer the site will stay free!! I find the advertising annoying and use an advertisement blocker but to many older people who were not bought up in the computer age, finding and installing an advertisement blocker is beyond them!! Yet it is these people, on fixed incomes who so need the help and company the site gives.

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog post about my love for wine. I LOVE the idea of mixing it with diet 7-up! I'm going to try that tomorrow.

Glad that something I said helped. I often think what I say is taken as offensive, or dismissive.

The point is, if it is a struggle, you won't stick to it for long. Both exercise, and diet. We need to make healthy changes that don't feel like it is a struggle. I constantly read about people who lost 10 lbs. in 2 weeks doing X diet, and in the next sentence they are craving a certain food, or hate doing the diet.

So pick a diet that works for you in general. i picked low carb, because I like meat and vegetables. That won't work if you love pasta, and bread.

With exercise, if an elliptical sounds like a torture device, why not join a church volleyball league, or take walks, ride a bike, or swim in the summer. Even gardening is exercise.

Bottom line is, if it is hard to do, and you hate it, you will probably quit it. It isn't about trying harder, but making it so you can succeed before it becomes a chore. Out of the dozens of diets, and exercises out there, choose the ones that you like to do, but still get results, and then just repeat.

Thanks for letting me know my post was helpful. I wish you great success reaching your goals.
