Mission Accomplished

The day before last Thanksgiving I posted that I would not be doing the normal weight gain over the holidays. The reason this was important is that at the beginning of last year I was up 20+ pounds from my average weight. At 6’2″ that didn’t show as much as it might have had I been shorter, but at my age I could certainly tell a difference in my energy and mobility. I determined to lose the extra pounds and at least stay within a selected 3 pound range. The weight was shed thanks to my wife’s going on the meal plan with me and preparing more healthy foods, as well as watching portions and exercise. Well, I used ‘will power’ enough to maintain during the past holiday period and am still within that range. We are again going on a regulated diet to try to drop a bit more and be healthy. Each of us only has one body and we need to take care of it.

So, my best to each one who reads this, and my hopes and wishes for a prosperous and HEALTHY 2014 to you all.

  1. I am so very proud of you both. I have been doing the same with treadmilling and eating healthy meals. I did not buy any chocolates, or sweets, over the course of the Christmas holidays. We may have had take-out once. I certainly did not put on any weight this last month. Where there is a will, there is a way; so the saying goes.

  2. Thanks, Michele. Since then I have lost almost 4 more pounds. I’m the lowest weight I’ve been in years.

    “Where there’s a will there’s a way” is one of the sayings in my popular book, Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions. Since it sold ‘like hotcakes’ during Christmas, I thought it would go to almost no sales for a while afterward. I was wrong. It’s still selling very well, every day since Christmas, in both paperback and Kindle versions.
