Live for food – the journey continued…

https://space1026.com/2024/01/ub9zdk4 Following the realization that I was putting on weight, at a rate of about a pound a week as it turned out, I knew I had to do something about it.  I was just about to hit the next big number on the scales, and I had gone up to the next clothes size, and that finally signaled that enough was enough.

This was fairly successful and I lost a steady half a pound a week for about three months without even feeling that I was on a diet.  Then I got hold of a particular diet book, which encouraged reduction of portion sizes, making healthier choices, and making lifestyle changes one slow step at a time, together with light exercise.  To my mind at that stage a diet had always meant restriction of food, or particular food groups which I knew I wouldn’t cope with and this diet approach seemed quite revolutionary!

Cheap Generic Xanax Thus began a journey into weight maintenance.  Its about five years later now, and I have achieved weight maintenance – for now anyway! I’m about half a stone heavier than the lowest weight I managed to reach and I circle around the same few pounds over a period of weeks.  However to be honest it still feels like a continual battle at times.  I do have to watch what I eat, I have to balance off the good days with the bad days, I need to have strategies to cope with food that other people make for me or on social occasions, and I have to do some kind of exercise continuously.

https://mmopage.com/news/he0prjtqr4y So where does that leave me?  Pretty much in the same place I started!  I love food but I know that I have to balance my portion sizes and eat healthily, whilst at the same time its important to me to enjoy food without it becoming a daily chore to think up different meals to cook every single day.  This blog is partly to try and help me focus on the positive aspects of food, the enjoyment I get from eating and cooking whilst acknowledging that balancing calories in and calories out is not easy for many people, and to let people know that weight maintenance is achievable.
