I’m not that fat. I just got heavier and have bulges where they used to be flat and wished they remained flat. After having 3 children and activities that made my fingers do the walking, it seems that I’m going to say goodbye to my body which I had less than 2 decades ago.
I loved my body then. Not because of beauty but because I was agile, strong and healthy. I rode a bike like I was a guy. I swam the beaches going the farthest. I played volleyball like there was no other day. I played bowling 15-20 games a day. (Paying those games is beside the point…I always played loser’s pay and usually start and end with the same money I had in my pocket.)
My diet? I drank whole milk most of the day. I could finish a kilogram in 2 days. Each glass would have about 3 heaping tablespoons that would reach half the glass and the rest with water…about 5-6 times a day. I’d have rice and viand for lunch and dinner and I’d be strong, alert and agile the whole day.
I wish I could have back that diet but if I do now, it would be very expensive. There was no internet then. Now that my life revolves with the internet, it’s more challenging to get back to my usual set of healthy activities.
Hubby would ask me, plead, actually, that I exercise but it seems the motivation is not very strong. He knew that vanity is not my motivation so he insists that I do it for health reasons. I know he’s right. We’re not going any younger and exercise will be the only way to keep those bones and heart alive and well.
I’ve looked into some diet pills that work. I’m still looking. As I always mention, when you want to try something new (at least for yourself), make sure to research about it especially if it will affect your health.
