Taking the Anxiety Out of a Good Diet
Good morning everyone! I am checking in to update my progress. I usually don't post very often because I have been really preoccupied with DH and his health but think this is a good time.
For me, being an older slower loser, backing off and relaxing in terms of what and how I eat has been so useful. I stopped tracking every bite I eat. I eat when hungry, don't go overboard on the carbs and let it ride. I accept the fact that I have to eat less, way less. I am trying to walk at least 3xweek and if I'm not too lazy I will actually get on my Pilates reformer. Somehow I got to the point where I don't have to track my DD so much (I just know) and on my UD my appetite isn't what it was. My doc said "Stop your gluttonous ways with a smile". I am a good eater. You don't get to 170 at 5'2" without eating let me just say. So, for all of you, try not to stress and stop your gluttonous ways. :) Try it for a couple of weeks and then take a look.
