Eat less move more, it works.
These last three months of simply eating less, and moving more have paid off.
Ten pounds worth.
I average about 1200 calories a day, that is the amount of calories I need to maintain this weight with what I do in a day.
My goal is to lose ten pounds more. Realistically I know to do that I need to exercise more. I cannot and do not want to eat less. I live in the land of good food, and those 1200 calories are consumed quickly enough. I do not want to go on a special diet that is going to curtail the joy of eating in France. Nor am I going to sit at a beautiful table with family and friends and nibble on a carrot.
Move more is biting at my heels.
Another thing, I don't want to lose another ten pounds only to regain them slowly back.
What I know to be true is that I have to maintain what I am doing now (eating less, moving more) for the rest of my life, otherwise those ten lost pounds will come back quickly.
To lose more is to make a serious commitment to exercising several times a week forever.
Forever is such a challenging word. I prefer the opposite partner Spontaneous to forever... and movies, reading, cooking, brocanting, taking photos, listening, talking... to exercise.
So now what??? How to lose ten more is going to be interesting. A commitment and change.
Should I do dance in the morning, and never sit still?
Will you join me?
How did you do this week?
Encourage one another.
