I love persimmons too but I got none at home. I fell of the wagon yesterday so to speak, had 2 Jammy Wheels / Linzer cookies (90 calories each), 1 bag of Skinny Pop (100 calories) and 3 pieces of my favorite Baci Hazelnut (250 calories total). My lunch and dinner were light and that was my excuse. We had a really strenuous walk yesterday morning up the mountain and part of it was unpaved road where they are building a Del Webb. I felt pretty good yesterday and slept like a baby. My weight is slowly "inching" down.Welcome. I am glad you liked the book. So simple but so profound.
I am hoping more will join in this thread even if their journey isn’t what they think is successful at this point.
I have found that almost everyone I know is struggling now, not losing, gaining weight and not exercising. Hard enough when things are good, understandable how hard now with what is happening.
I have many downs and ups. Just last night I had food calling my name. Nothing to grab in my house that is a trigger food but I had 4 persimmons. I used them as my drug of choice. Yes persimmons are a fruit but I ate them all In one sitting. Why? Because, just because. I have always been told no one gets fat eating fruit and vegetables. I can, so that statement is not true. If 4 more were in my home I would have eaten them. If there were cookies or ice cream in my house I would have eaten those first.
All I know is today is a new day. No beating myself up and will try not to binge on anything. That is my key, not to be embarrassed that it happened, still participating in this thread and just to mentally keep trying to eat healthier and exercise.
With all going on now I wish my weight was at a healthier number to reduce my risk factor. I will just keep trying even when I fall off because it still puts me in the right direction.
My BMI is 21.6 but I feel healthiest between 19 and 20. BMI 20 is my goal which is 10 lbs lighter than where I am.
