Big challenge

Making healthy choices during holidays is one of my biggest challenges.

Make an eating plan for tomorrow

Planning in advance of what and when to eat is an important element of our struggle to lose weight. We are more likely to make good choices if we have a plan of what and when to eat. Our day will go more smoothly and our weight loss efforts will stay on track if we have an eating plan. Take time to plan eating for weight loss success and keep your plan simple so it will be easy to follow through. This does take some time and effort, but it's well worth it, because if we maintain healthy eating long enough it will become our “new normal”.

NYC 2013 Half Marathon

I ran NYC 2013 Half Marathon last Sunday.  It was very cold but it was also a lot of excitement.
Almost fifteen thousand runners from twenty-two different countries participated in the race.
It was so inspiring to be there with thousands of other runners.
Running South on Seventh Avenue and through Times Square with no cars around will be a memory I will cherish forever.


Continued weight losss challenges

Some people tell me that I should not have these challenges, weak moments, inconsistency issues or whatever we may call it.

The successful weight loser, the one that lost 91 pounds and maintained for two years, realized that the natural laws of weight gain (regain) apply to me, too.
Yes they do. I start regaining weight when I deviate from the eating method that helped me lose weight. I don’t know why I was so disappointed when I noticed it for the first time.
The good news is that by resuming full compliance with the Eat Like Me eating method I managed to bring back weight to my lovely 170 pounds number. I know now that I need to focus on the situations and circumstances that lead to making poor choices.
