Five months ago I was 10 pounds lighter. I was also unhappy, though thin and confident. Then I started to slip, and here I am, regretting what I ate during the winter –southern hemisphere here– and trying to get back on track so as to lose at least 5 pounds for my 50th birthday. My rules are:
No binging –I can do this, did it before.
No tomatoes –it’s a trigger for me.
No nuts and peanuts.
Run three times a week.
It is going to be hard to run, because I am out of shape. I remember getting to run 5k three times a week when I was thinner, but then I got promoted, did not have the time to keep running and started to gain weight.
I will have to go back to my stress management techniques, to having a good breakfast and no grazing. Food has to go back to where it belongs, to the table and to special hours of the day.
I am the only person who puts things in my mouth, so what I eat is entirely my responsibility.
I will start to blog again with this message:
You CAN los 20 % of your weight.
You CAN stop binging.
You CAN start to run and enjoy it.
AND YOU CAN GAIN YOUR WEIGHT BACK, STOP RUNNING AND BINGE AGAIN. SO BE CAREFUL.
Reporting tomorrow. Love to all!
