A chubby childThe case of how I can lose weight and keep it off continues.
Daddy's Little Fatty
I was a chubby child, not as fat as I was teased about being (my father used to sing Daddy's Little Fatty to me), but photos show a sturdy little girl in a patched sweater with long hair my mother had obviously lovingly curled.
Too Fat for Plaid
I lost weight as a teen, however, I remember shopping once with my father and he laughed at me when I picked out plaid, saying it would make me look "like a barn door." Cruel. I didn't buy the plaid skirt.
Almost AnorexicIn my twenties and thirties I was very thin. When my daughter was born I weighed 115 pounds on my 5 feet 8 inch frame.
Medications and Weight Gain
Then the mental illness and the meds which increased my appetite and put weight around my middle, the worst place.
Then came the fifties and sixties years old, a slowing of metabolism, depression, and weight gain in the 1990s.
Fortunately, I've taken most of it off and have maintained with exercise and watching my diet. But I remain vigilant, and have another 20 pounds to lose now that the long dark winter's over, my son is laid to rest, and I have a new year(s) ahead of me.
I bought George Diamond's eBook, Don't Diet: Think and Get Thin, I joined Anne Collins before she closed her site, I joined My Fitness Pal, all helped temporarily and led to some lasting friendships. George says "change your thinking" and yes, that's the clue.
I read a lot of motivational, fitness, and health books and magazines.
The price of freedom is constant vigilance.
A Website for Vegans
I thought this website was awesome, a vegan who writes mysteries and posts her recipes like detective novels. Her name is Cynthia St-Pierre and she can be found here with her wonderful mystery novels and her almost
equally wonderful recipes:
