Doin' it kickin' & screamin'!

I've done this before. Many times, in fact. But I always know, that if you monitor or document what you eat every day, you'll see the real truth. And here's the truth: I'm not dying of hunger. I'm not "dieting"... I'm literally eating good food, healing foods, that (coupled with cardio and workouts) I'm slowily seeing the bathroom scale as a good friend. But better than the scale, it's the overall feeling of wellness. An old guy named Draper, lapped me at the walking park today (he's 75; I'm 60), but I told him it won't be long before he'll have competition!
All I can say is this: Do this. This is the day to start. Even if you've had trouble meeting your health goals before, take the time to (like the Old Testament book Habakkuk 2:2 says), "Write it down." And in our case here, post it every day on MyFitnessPal.
I have 42 pounds to go to my goal. So far, it appears that I'm losing about 8 pounds per month. And that's right on schedule. Thanks My Fitness Pal app - check my blog post there!

I have used MyFitnessPal for over 2 years now, and find it very helpful. About 8 years ago I lost 40 lbs on Weight Watchers, and it has been a fight to keep it off. 10 lbs kept wanting to creep back on - and that is a "write it down" kind of diet, but I found 3 years back that it no longer worked for me. And besides everything I ate had to be turned from calories into points. I knew the stats on writing down what you eat. That is the most successful system. Most people have no idea how many calories they are eating - especially in chain restaurants. Most meals and sandwiches are a whole days calories for me. I am happy to say I have lost that 10 lbs for about 18 months now. I am holding and yet I still eat what I want on special occasions. MyFitnessPal makes it so easy. Most days I walk between 1 and 2 miles with my dog and that's it. So happy to see you are succeeding with it. Love you dear friend!
