My name is Judy I retired this February. I was flip flopping back & forth with my weight for too long. In Jan. of this year I started to be a MINDFUL eater. When I go out to a restaurant ( which is not too often ) I go on line to read their menu & pick out from home what I want. That way I already know what I will have as if I did not I would be prone perhaps to order unhealthy. If I go to a buffet before even picking up the plate I walk the buffet twice then I pick out my grilled meat chicken & fish or if not grilled will get chicken take the skin off & breading so I have some protein. Then the rest of my plate is filled with all kinds of vegetables, plus a ;large salad with no dressing on it as I would not be able to taste the vegetable in it's crispy form. I use to smother my salad with dressing, then there is a;ways plenty of fruit . I always order water no sugared drinks !!! I am also & still can not believe my attitude change on working out. I walk 2 to 4 miles a day, swim 3 times a week for an hour straight, then Zumba twice a week. I almost lost my hand due to an accident. So I have changed in my thinking so much about life. I try to be a MINDFUL eater & MINDFUL in my exercise !!!

    Hi Judy! emoticon
    Thanks for getting back to me. It sounds like you are doing fantastic! It was interesting to hear about all the various exercise classes you do and that they have helped firm your thighs. Now that is definitely something I need! I have taken up swimming but need to do more for the legs and arms. Will probably do weights and exercise bands. Have a great week and go for that celery! emoticon

    Hi Judy, thank you for commenting on my blog awhile back, I just saw it. I actually used many of your ideas when on vacation and lost over 16 pounds while away for 7 weeks! A very handy tip was looking at the restaurant menu online beforehand. I too am in my 60's and had to 'retire' before I was ready, so can relate.
    I am adding you as a sparkfriend if that is ok...
    Have a great weekend! Sissie emoticon

    Hi Judy! Today must've been pizza day! We put up 4 sections of privacy fence & painted porch posts. BF wanted LaRosa's, his favorite - meatlovers. I had 2 pieces & 2 Mich Ultras. It's ok once on awhile. Let's be good now, ok? WE got THIS friend! 😊
