Riding the Yo-Yo Wagon

After two years of riding the yo-yo wagon, I am back at square one. I lost 12 glorious pounds and felt suave and confident in my new clothes. Then I gained back the 12 pounds and the belly fat and the high blood sugars. But . . .

The good news is I am committing to a healthy lifestyle plan for the next three months, even with tendonitis in my hands and an injured shoulder.

My goal is to prove that I can get healthy, lose belly fat, and feel good by eating plenty of real food, exercising, finding a purpose outside myself, and improving my attitude (to reduce stress). I will also continue my medical care, which consists of laser therapy twice a week and deep-tissue massage once a week for tendonitis, as well as a weekly chiropractic adjustment–until I run out of money, that is.

I will NOT be counting calories, and I WILL eat occasional desserts. I’ll post recipes sometimes.

I’ll include some of my daily menus and explain why I picked them. I’ll also report my weight and waist measurement once a week, probably Monday afternoons. Even though I don’t know you, it will help me be accountable if I think someone is reading this.

Thanks! Join me if you’d like!


*Today’s stats: morning weight–186.8 lbs, 40 inch waist   (But I still like myself?!)

About tiredofbeingoldandtired

I'm a fifty-something woman, with half a dozen grown children, who plans to prove once and for all (I hope) that I can get healthy in every way by eating real food, exercising gently, finding a satisfying purpose, and reducing stress, without starving or torturing myself. I'll keep you posted.
