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!

The One Year Challenge on my ticker is a Linda Spangle thing - check her website for more info - it's basically committing to a year of using the 100 Days of Weight Loss book to stay on track to learn to manage emotional eating issues

emoticon Hello, Gill!
Your son is quite handsome in the photo with you before his wedding. I hope he and his bride are very happy and have a long and wonderful life together.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. As deep as DM's wound is, she is not really in any pain. The layer of skin that has the pain nerve endings is gone, so she cannot feel any pain except some pain along the edges of her wound. Once the tissue with the pain nerves begins to heal, she should feel pain (It is the same for people who have third degree burns - the tissue with the pain nerves is gone so they feel no pain in their deep wounds until the tissue with the pain nerves begins to grow back). Her wound is dressed (packed) once a shift (2 times in 24 hours) every day with dressings soaked in a special solution. Then she gets wound treatments 3 times a week with ultra sound and saline mist.

It was so nice to go visit DM and find out that she does know who I am. At times she got my name confused with others, but she always knew my relationship to her.

Thanks for stopping by my page! I hear you on the whole money thing. My friend was trying to convince me to turn vegan as she is - I pointed out that feeding 5 on £40 a week there is no way I can afford it! She spends £100 on groceries for 3 - lucky she can afford healthier choices!! Anyway, hope you are doing well. x

Thanks for the August 1st information. I will consider it. I'm getting nowhere on my own. Being a guy on SparkPeople is to be regularly out numbered 41 to 1. That"s the ratio on my 5% Challenge team where I am the token male. The site-wide ratio is probably bigger.

I'm glad three meals a day are working well for you. Your reasons are sound. This is a case of being in different places along the journey, and the 6 meals a day are working for me. When I get closer to goal or maintenance, I will be looking for new strategies to push me over the hump. I may come back to the three meals a day. I'm learning to eat less and to make appropriate sized meals.

The daily calorie load for me at my current weight and activity level is over 1,800. It breaks down to 600 to 700 calories a meal when limiting to three meals a day. Keeping meals around 300 to 400, and eventually dropping a couple seems to me to be a good plan. I just need to be focused on eating the right meals and not skipping too many in a day.
