Active Folks Over 50 is a place to talk about fitness and healthy eating information as it relates to weight loss and/or maintenance--and also about any work, fun, hobby, or volunteer activites you're engaged in. In other words, the active part of your life!
Just a few guidelines for this thread:
- Raves about grandkids or ranting about your kids is out of bounds.
- Lengthy discussion of your illnesses, conditions, treatments, and medical procedures in general is also out of bounds on this thread. So is whining about old age!
- Positive stories of vacations taken, volunteer work, or achievements at work or elsewhere are highly encouraged! As are recommendations for books, movies, discussions of weight related issues, etc.
Gee, Jude--sorry to hear that you caved in so late in the day, after having avoided those food items for so long...
Maybe you got too hungry by then.
But when that happens, try not to let the rest of the evening go downhill. If you get a flat tire, do you pull off the road and slash the other three?
And so it is with this weight loss business--a slip isn't an excuse for a binge.
Laurie, have you always had a hearing impairment?
Jada, it sounds like things are hanging in OK with you. I like the idea of saving money you don't spend on overeating.
I have to say, though, that I don't agree with the opinion that it's best to just give in to cravings. There is no end to that... and getting back on plan "a day or so later" is too long! That's why I like calorie-counting. No food is off limits, so I'm not forbidden to eat anything. I just have to count everything. And I know what my daily allotment is.
meowee, what can I say about your s**w situation?
Good for you on the 5 pounds, though!
Keep on going!
loveswalking, come on back and post again!
And now I have work to do...
