My Goal:
1. Eat at meals until I am 3/4 full
2. Eat mostly plants (including reasonable amounts of whole grains, red wine, & dark chocolate!)
3. Only eat half of any meal that is "dinner" (go to bed empty)
4. Fully enjoy three bites of anything that is a treat
5. Lift weights

About me:
The typical story as many here, 59 years. Recently found a notebook that I had in college (1972) that I used to record what I ate in order to try to lose 10 pounds. Have I honestly been dieting for 40 years? That's ridiculous. Well I didn't diet when I was pregnant, twice-- two girls-- permanent 10 pound gain each time. Like I said, pretty typical.


Diets I like:
Just began the Fast-5 eating plan, (4/1/14) and I can really feel the benefits of not having insulin coursing through my bod all day long.
None, so I work on food choices, portion size, and activity. I logged for a LONG time & learned what works for now. Bramacharya - Moderation Beck System helped me get to this place, too


Workout of choice:
Yoga & aerobics classes, a little walking & bike riding. But mostly yoga.


My plan:
To remind myself how far I've come: Highest weight ever (about 3 years ago)- about 171 Starting date in Fit Day log (9/4/07) 161 Lowest weight recorded (3/5/08, 6/29/08 & 9/24/09) 142 Currently bouncing around 149-154 Reasonable goal 135 -- I'm 5'6" & that was my college weight Super reach goal for optimum health 125
Upate: early 2012, weight crept back up to the low 150's. I know better and I have got to get that down.


I need the most help with:
-- not sure, staying motivated maybe, because this is a life journey, not a quick fix
