My name is Judy I retired this February I was yo yoing back & forth with my weight Then this Jan, I got sick of it. I changed my way of thinking I am a MINDFUL eater now. I also walk every day, go swimming 3 times a week for an hour each time & I do Zumba twice a week .The fat is slowly melting off like butter on a hot ear of corn in August !!!
It would be nothing for me too eat a whole sleeve of Oreo cookies, I was hungry for a cookie recently so I went to Mc Donalds & bought one cookie I had it with a glass of fat free milk was satisfied. When I go out to eat I look up the restaurant on line & pick out want I want instead of ordering on impulse. I recently visited my brother in Virginia we went out to eat a few times there was a buffet at the one ,so before I picked up my plate I walked the entire food bar to see what was available I had so much vegetables and fruit on my plate plus a piece of chicken & fish ( grilled )
When I go grocery shopping I never avoid the isles where in the past the food would have been in my cart . Not now I actually go to that food imagine I am eating it, imagine the bloating I would feel, then the awful bashing I would give my self for eating it,feelings of depression for the over indulgence etc etc Now when I go to that food isle after giving myself a silent talk about this food and how I would feel I can walk away turn half way around down the isle and smile knowing I won !!!

    “Go for broke, my friends. Straighten your spine when you step to the podium. Trust your own tongue. Believe that your weary legs will hold you until you reach the finish line. And reach it you will if you give it your all. Fall if you must, crawl if you must, but don’t you dare give up or give in until you’ve made it to the end. For at the end is where your great reward will be to begin anew. A new chance. A new life. A new you.”
