So...going slowly, steadily, no diets, merely paying more attention and thinking about what I eat, keeping the calories counted, and thinking daily how I will exercise that day...down a little over 13 lbs. Taking it off slowly, the way I put it on. NO diets, no extremism. I have an app that helps me keep track of calories, nutrition, and excercise...that helped me a lot.
(Also, I guess, not writing another book just now helps...being chained to the computer does things to your body.)
Am a recovered survivor of diets, and know where it leads. Usually, not to "healthy." But Jim and I are more focused on the healthy than the weight thing...I think that helps.
