I’ve kept a low profile on my blog for a few days because I had to think things over.
Lately I’ve been talking and talking about eating healthy and exercising but it’s mostly talking and no action. I feel I’m losing my credibility: to myself, to R. and to you, my blogger friends.
In two weeks I’m turning 42 and although I’m 6 kg (13 lbs) lighter than last year, my goal last year was to be a goal weight when I turned 42. At this moment I’m 6 kg (13 lbs) away from that goal. Since the beginning of this year up till now I’m mostly maintaining my current weight. I’ve asked myself: is that enough? Should I be happy with this weight and accept it?
The answer is no because my BMI is still too high, as is my fat %, this is not a healthy weight for me. If I want to change that I need to change myself, make different food choices, eat less, move more. I’ve got no one else to blame for this weight than me, I did this to myself and I am the one who can change it. So is today (again) the first day of the rest of my healthy life? Yes it is!
I’m introducing FEM-days. FEM stands for Feelings, Eating, Moving. Everyday I will write down how I’m doing in these 3 subjects. I’ll start with 30 days to see how this is going. I’ve put a little notebook in my purse, it’s not for tracking my food but for making notes during the day concerning food choices and/or feelings.
I can totally understand it if you are sceptic about this. If you follow me for a while you know I’ve started over and over again and I honestly don’t know yet if this is going to work. The only thing I do know is that if you don’t try it, you certainly know it won’t work. I hope you’re not tired of my newest attempt and still will support me on this.

If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
