For years I’d been fortunate to remain within the stats of a healthy weight range. If I gained a few pounds, I could lose them easily.
Along came birthday ’50’ and former foreigners to me ‘The Three Ms’ started following me around like frenemies.
Uninvited and unwanted menopause, medication and metabolism formed an alliance to annoy and attack 5′ 0″ me.
Each arrived at a different moment in time following my half-century mark and together these nasty deal-breakers slowly wreaked havoc in my daily life.
In spite of a healthy diet regimen I was under siege and needed to revisit and devise a new plan to combat this small army of perpetrators.
Decision not to relinquish defeat, I chose a popular diet – one tailored to my personal needs then incorporated daily exercise for maximum benefit.
For fun I made a photo food diary and posted pics of healthy meals and food choices on Instagram for followers to see.
The downward trend was working for me and then it happened = the dreaded plateau. Somehow the task became difficult as the numbers came close yet I failed to attain that latest mini goal.
Frustrated I wanted to quit only failure is rarely an option for me. Lagging behind I thought about happy weight versus healthy weight.
I plugged in required info to three different sites and two were in sync revealing similar calculations to lose weight at a healthy rate.
With sincere intentions today a fresh start I undertake as I strive to reach each consecutive mini goal set within its’ timeframe.
I hope in the future to see a little less of me as I continue to pursue my weight loss journey.
