Losing 50 after 50


Losing 50 pounds is not about improving my outer body, but it is about ending my unhealthy relationship with Junk Food.

This is a journey I must take. I Believe I CAN lose 50 after 50.

It is time for me to terminate my love affair with:

  • Junk Food
  • Unhealthy, sedentary behaviour
  • Excessive anything and everything; and
  • Ignoring my Condition

It is time for me to initiate a love affair with:

  • Myself
  • My Body, AS IT IS
  • My Body, as it can be, AND
  • My WORLD. The Wonder, The Horror, and the Reality.

The best advice I received, and one that anyone intending to lose weight should heed, is always follow your Doctor’s recommendation. Never begin a weight loss program until after you complete and obtain the results of a full physical by your medical team.

I will try anything, including:

  • Change my diet
  • Stop drinking soda (but I love the zazz of Jamaican Ginger Beer)
  • Get more exercise
  • Make a Meal Plan (BORING!)
  • Take supplements
  • Join a support group
  • Drink Water (BLEHHHHHH)
  • Explore rituals to ward off fat growing curses (Interesting)
  • Get in touch with nature
  • Dance and Move – Anyway, Anyhow
