I started this journey in November of 2015. I have been logging everything I eat. I have had several slips and falls. But I keep getting back up and trying again. Failure is NOT an option. A journey is an adventure and a challenge. You learn from your mistakes and adapt and make adjustments.
I have found that logging all of my food is a huge help and keeps me accountable to myself. This journey is about me and only me. I post about my journey to further my accountability. I learn from others, celebrate other’s success and am motivated by them. I struggle at times because I am changing my lifestyle. I try to push my comfort zone as much as possible.
I have found some very useful tips and articles by reading The How published by LoseIt. I set goals for myself that are realistic and measurable. I don’t totally restrict myself, if I did I would not succeed. I reward myself as I reach my goals. I am feeling the difference in my body and mind.
I now have a personal trainer helping me who pushes me and advises me. Her guidance is helping me move to my next level. Now, I not only walk but I have strength training as part of my regular routine. I try to have at least of 30 minutes of activity every day. I use the Apple Watch app to monitor to my daily goals with fitness.
