No more sumo wrestler poses

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

It feels good to have put my mind back on track for having a long-term goal and plan.

I had taken to imitating the slow, earth crunching walk of a sumo wrestler in the morning when exiting the shower - disgustedly watching myself in the mirror, accepting that I have weight gained beyond most of my clothes. As entertaining as it has been to revel in self loathing, Sumo Amy has gotta go. Time to love thyself.

    Good Luck! And, yes, I was one of the ones who cracked up over "Sumo Amy"...also, I maybe empathize a little bit!

    I am sorry but I read this and just about died laughing. Sumo Amy? Oh my, I am sure you look nothing like a sumo wrestler! I mean come on, would you really run around with one of those diaper things stuffed up your bum? I am still over here grinning like an idiot from the imagery. Thanks for the chuckle and good bye sumo amy!

Planning for Success

Monday, July 01, 2013

I am committing to a year of following the maintenance program of the Ideal Protein Diet. I will plan ahead by stocking my home with healthy, real foods and removing foods that let me obsess about being "bad".

I am committing to exercising 5 days a week and will use SparkPeople to track my life.

Rather than setting a goal of losing weight, I am setting a goal of eating right and exercising - with the hopes that a year from now I will be able to go on The Ideal Protein Diet again to reach my goal weight. By then, I should be well adapted to eating right and exercising - which should allow me to succeed at maintaining my weight.

My ultimate goal is to avoid having diabetes - it has been showing up in my family and I do not want it.

    For more data on protein look at Tom Venuto's, "Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle" - it's available on-line. It's excellent material. emoticon
