Its Never Too Early Or Too Late To Lose Those Extra Pounds

Two_Men_EatingI am now in my early 60’s and I can honestly say that I feel fitter and healthier than I did when I was back in my 40’s – probably even my 30’s.

And it’s all because I found a way to deal with the extra pounds of weight that I had been carrying around with me for far too long.

Like many I’d tried a few of the diets that have done the rounds at various times.

I must admit I bypassed some of the more drastic ones that have been promoted.

But nothing seemed to work.

Yes, I lost a few pounds but some how the weight appeared to go back on – and oh my goodness – plus a little bit extra each time.

 

Never Accept Your Weight Point…..

But the sad news was that as I crept from my 40’s into my 50’s I started to accept that was the way things were.

I was starting to accept what I now call ‘My Weight Point’ being too high.

By my estimation, at this time, I was probably about 18 to 20 pounds overweight. Not massive (sorry for the pun) but significant enough to be of concern.

Then for some strange reason I started to notice overweight people were everywhere and I kept coming back to the thought that I didn’t want to be like that.

But I was like that. Wasn’t I? And unless I could find the way to sort the problem, it had the risk of only getting worse.

 

Help In The Strangest Places…..

tape round big waistThen one day I was reading a business book on the power of focus and in there was a chapter dedicated to habits.

I read the chapter a couple of times and then it started me thinking maybe lots of challenges in life are down to our habits.

You see we all have habits – good and bad. And what I now know is that those habits control our lives for good or bad.

In fact I recently came across an excellent quote that says “our habits can be our greatest friend or our biggest enemy”.

Do you know what it’s like when you get an idea in your head and you can’t get rid of it? Well that is what happened with my thoughts on habits.

 

When Reality Hits…..

And then one night it clicked with regards to my weight and eating and drinking habits.

It was just like a light bulb being switched on.

Forget about diets. If I was right and habits do truly control our lives then all I needed to do was take a cold hard look at my eating and drinking habits – and maybe just maybe I could solve my little big problem.

Now all this thinking and deliberating went on about five years ago.

But I implemented my plan and lost 18 pounds.

And I have kept it off without a second thought ever since, because now I have new eating and drinking habits and they are permanent.
