It’s time to dust off the scale and face the dirty facts. Honestly, I’m not as concerned about the number on the darn thing nearly as much as I’m concerned about how I feel and taking off inches around my waist, but it is a good motivator. Well, sometimes! I am declaring Wednesday my “judgement” day of choice and hoping for the best. I think Wednesday is the best day to do it because I typically overeat on the weekends and need Monday and Tuesday to detox a bit. The body does very strange things as it get older and boy am I learning fast. Just a few years ago I could walk a few miles a week, eat pretty much anything I wanted and still lose weight, but now? My “twenty-something years of crazy eating and easy losing” coupon has expired.
One of the greatest weight loss tools that I found to work well for me is to keep a food journal. I am vowing to get back on track by writing down what I’m eating and pinpointing my trouble areas, but that’s not all (she says with a devilish grin).
I finally won a bid on Ebay for a Richard Simmons Food Mover. Okay, so you’re thinking what in the hell is that? I know, I know, but it’s only the greatest, coolest, pocket gadget created in my world. It’s basically a rectangle wallet-size compact that allows you to mark off the foods you eat by closing little picture windows of the different food groups as you eat a serving. There are various cards that you can slide into the windows based on the calories you need for the day. My mom use to have one when I was a kid and I have been on a mission to find one since she threw it away. I am now realizing for the first time that Richard Simmons is my idol. Hmmmmm! LETS MOVE, PEOPLE!
