Well, it looks like as of the beginning of last week, I am back to my attempt to shed the few pounds which I had gained back over the last year or so.
Only this time, I am forgoing the rigorous exercise which resulted in my losing clumps of head hair the first time I tried dieting at my age two years ago. With the spring weather now upon us and in full swing, I have fortunately had the opportunity to go for four days of up to one hour walks (well, my walk is more like a slow run!) after work hours. I work until 4:30 during the week and by the time I get home in the afternoon the sun is no longer beating down on me and there is usually a very nice, comforting breeze about the air.
So far, I have managed to drop just enough weight to get back into my summer clothing by walking and eating mostly grilled chicken salads and such ...
Of course, I am not foolish enough to think that I will be able to look as thin as I had in my 30's, but at the age of 51, I can only go so far as I keep hitting a plateau in my weight loss and my body has decided to fight me no matter what I try to do!
No matter; however, I have also decided that I am through with scales and counting calories as I had for so very many years as I have had quite enough of that routine. No, I have decided to let my clothing do my talking for me and monitor my weight loss by size instead!
