Changing my relationship with food

I am 60 yrs old, 5'3" tall and weigh just around 9stone - 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 ...

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!

You caught my attention with the descriptive "anti-self help book". I like to think I'm above the pop-psychology of self-help, but I sure do check my share out of the library. I'm carrying "Full Catastrophe Living," Jon Kabat-Zinn, with me this weekend. I just read the good ones ;)

Thanks for sharing. You didn't have to, but it's fun that you did. I was making fun out of "being nosy" and "fighting distractions". Since it was an interesting book, I look forward to hearing your review. Is that the correct spelling of the title?

The drive up was uneventful, and we breezed through Canadian customs . . . whew. Stopped at an incredible fruit and vegetable market to pick up food for meals. Walked up through town visiting many little art galleries in the neighborhood.

Hi Gill! The forest picture and status update was from Wednesday night walk. I had a tough day and sought out sanctuary in the forest. I found it. After my 2 mile walk, I sat at the trailhead and read until it got too dark. Morning run picture would have been of the rowers on the calm lake.

Thank you for the helping hand goodie-- his name was Todd. Todd is a local youth programs leader. To me, and most of the community, he's known as the most patient man in the world. He maned the barbecue.

I certainly don't think your a "nosy" person :)

Thank you.
