My Goals:
...like the patient and persistent turtle I want to stay focussed and reach my goal weight.


My Program:
It's a lifestyle, not a diet!

Track calorie range every day

Avoid getting too hungry, eat 5-6 smaller meals over the day

Emphasis on lean protein/dairy, fruits, veggies

Minimum 30 minutes active exercise daily

Weigh-in twice a week

Water, water, water

Walk, walk, walk!

Smell, taste, savor each bite

Some (dark) chocolate is required of course!

Eat to live, not as recreation or a time-filler

Do not eat in front of TV

Do not eat directly from bag or box

Use smaller plates

Stop when full -- not overfull

Give up membership in the 'clean plate club'

Plan, plan, plan: take water/snacks on outings; have cut-up veggies ready to nibble

Get informed: check restaurant menus beforehand; check labels for ingredients, recommended portion size etc.

Add a good measure of laughter!

Enjoy the journey!

“The renowned seventh-century Zen master Seng-tsan taught that true freedom is being "without anxiety about imperfection.”
