So, What's the Plan?

When embarking on a journey, you need a plan.  A road map.  A compass.  Some beef jerky.  Something to point you in the direction of where you want to go.

Yeah, I don't have one of those........yet.

One problem that I discovered with my past weight loss attempts is that they gave you a plan...but didn't teach you anything.  Well, Weight Watchers was a little better at that....but in the end.....I didn't learn what I needed to.

So, the first stage of my journey is research.  Lots of research.  I need to figure out my own road map.  I know basic components:

  • Eat less
  • Eat healthier
  • Exercise

But I am not sure what all of those will entail yet.  Knowledge is power.  And I am not full of knowledge yet.  I need to figure out what MY body needs.  I don't think a lifestyle change is a "one size fits all" kind of thing.  So, that is part one.

Once I figure out what I need, then I will ACT.  Now, that isn't to say that nothing will be happening during stage one.  During stage one....I will have some mini changes.  There are habits that I need to break, and habits I need to form.  So the beginning will entail some of those.

Once I ACT, then I need to POWER THROUGH.  That is where the real work will take place.

Here we go!!!

  1. In reality we have to consume less calories than we need, But I like to eat so I consume more. Now we could exercise but can't always fit that in. Portion control, not eating after 7? Reduce carbs? There are a lot of things that work. I did get up and nosh last night, But it was on 3 small baby dills, and about 20 pecans. So no smores or sugar cereal or chips. See you are helping me.
