I'm up a touch (235.9). What is upsetting is before the July 4th holiday I was actually down to 233. Time to refocus, and for me, I'm being "active" but not "exercising."
AMAZON HALO GETS A NEW FEATURE
The Amazon Halo (their version of a fitbit) has announced a new feature where using your camera on your it puts you through a test and provides you with a movement score. If you do "not so good" it provides exercises for you to get back in shape. I plan on doing this as I realize the older I get the more putting on my shoes feels like an Olympic event.
The Halo is $99, and comes with six months of membership. Then it's only $4/month (much cheaper than apple). More information
I was watching (I think) 90-day fiance. A woman who was overweight said she didn't know why she was fat. She told her grandchildren she was going to go get weight loss surgery. The children then let the camera crew know Grandma eats LOTS AND LOTS of sweets. If you're not sure why you're gaining weight and you have a six-year-old in the house, ask them. They will tell you with no filter.
I was a story about Dan who had started a business, got married and had two children in a short amount of time. He had also moved (in case he needed more stress).
With the birth of his children, Dan knew he had to make some changes. He cut down on carbs and sugary snacks. He looked and added food that was nutritional. He got used to being slightly hungry and if he needed a snack he made it a healthy won.
He focused both on strength training and cardio. It took some time to lose the weight, but in the end, his health helps him handle the stress better. He was sleeping better.
He did this without ALL OR NOTHING thinking, and just started heating healthy choices and exercising more. He lost 75 lbs and looks and feels much better.
Keep in mind, it takes time to start reversing the years of abuse we have put into our bodies, but we can do it.
