January will be a clean sweep............ not sure exactly what, but a kind of pre-Spring clean maybe!

I am 62 yrs old, 5'3" tall and weigh around 8 stone 2lbs - so I'm in the 'healthy' range. My issue is less being fat, and more about my relationship with food.

I am learning to manage my behaviour around food with the NoS diet which is working well for me. Three 'proper meals' a day - no snacks, sweets or seconds on weekdays - with some freedom at the weekends and on special days like birthdays. Good old-fashioned regular eating pattern! My behaviour around food is being modified very happily with this system. So glad I found it. Check out the NoS team page if you're curious!

I want to be fit, supple, happy, healthy, full of energy!

I'm keen to be lean!

I've also noticed that a lot of my status updates are about the weather - very British!

".. every pound of weight loss results in five pounds of stress taken off your knees, seven pounds off your ankles, and a whopping ten pounds off your spinal discs!" it's worth the effort!

    Ditto on Day 10. I didn't 'hover'. As I applied a little pressure in that direction my back said 'no way!' I might have to watch them in advance like you do.

    Thank you for your extremely delicious comment on my blog about calcium & soy-free breakfast! You're right that breads have to be carefully chosen for calcium content. Your recommendation sounds so yummy & easy, I'm going to try it tomorrow.

    I would have never thought that trying to lose weight would affect how I would struggle all these years since, but I believe that our bodies will naturally go back to the weight that it should be, until we start doing things like cutting calories. I went on the Air Force high protein diet at the time, even bought a little booklet that told me how much protein was in different foods.

    I was on the Fat WAF (Women in the Air Force) program until I was discharged and never got the excess weight off. We live and learn.
