This photo was taken the last time I went to Saskatchewan to have a visit at the farm.
I loved it because of the reflection in the mirror, as well as the bright colors.
Looking back at eating habits there was we always had a breakfast.
We all ate together at mealtimes
And we ate what was on our plates
Very seldom were there leftovers.
There was always a huge garden
We were very active working on the farm
And I was in almost every sport I had time for.
Usually there were always deserts.
My weight was not really an issue of more than twenty pounds.
Until I moved to the city
where I now did not eat at every meal,
Alot of instant precooked meals,
junkfood, and here is the kicker,
very little exercise.
When I go home to visit,
there is, has been and always will be
enough food to feed an army!
So pretty much it has been
Come to mama!
I am not kidding you!
It could be like a no holds barred eatfest,
My mother loves to cook,
It is very hard to say no!
So that is sorta the rundown, I have been on every diet known to mankind, and will never go on another one, as you set yourself up for failure. But I am on a lifestyle change to get healthier. At my first meeting last week , she suggested that I start to write down everything I eat in a day and when. What I have found is it really keeps me on track with okay you have had that piece of bread, get your fruit and protein. If I am not tracking it, oh yeah I had one then, oh right I ate that then. Oh and then there were those 4 cookies. on and on. So on Friday I have a 2 and a half hour class about the Weight Loss program, I am as open to as much knowledge that they can teach me. The other thing I have noticed is that when I would diet I really could lose weight quickly, but I tell you the aging process has kicked the heck out of that. I had heard how much harder it is after 40, and darlins that is the truth!
I am 46 now and I am excited when I turn 50
Because I want to be the healthiest that I can possibly Be.
And I am going to go skydiving and out dancing!
I am going to make this dream come true.
Together we can reach our goals, Being Consistant and Patient
We can be and do Anything.
I hope you have a bright and fabulous day, don't look back on past failures,
Lets continue our new exciting adventures!
