My ultimate goal is to lose enough weight to have "normal" BMI with a little wiggle room! ( So far, 155 pounds down 5 to go)
To get off all or at least most of my medications. (So far, off 3 and 2 reduced to half doses)
To be able to continue to live a healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. (So far, every day I eat at least 7 servings of fruits and vegetables and move at least 10 miles every day)
Diet: Stay within my set calorie range, eat at least 7 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Limit my intake of crackers to a single 100 calorie serving a day. Drink at least 80 ounces of water daily.
Exercise: Minimum 75 minutes of walking or aerobics daily. 10-15 minutes strength training at least 3 day a week.
All year long we focus on Healthy eating and moving the body to become fit. We do this for a chance to live life to the fullest. This fullness is to be shared at the dinner table at the holidays, not by what you put in your belly, it is to be measured from the joy you receive from being grateful for one more year with your loved ones. We do not get a guarantee to have another year with everyone you see, so make the most of the moment, and leave the worries for another day. Happy Holidays to you my Friend!
