Walk, Walk, Walk

Walking is the best exercise for staying healthy. I walk around 5 km daily.

I need to lose 50 lbs.  Would some kind soul send me a subliminal message to help me get off my rump and onto my feet?!@#*  Merci.

@Carol_42 - I was going to take a rest from cycling.  I did but felt compelled to walk.  I walked and even ran some on my rest day.  I will send subliminal thoughts.

 

The only practical advice I can give is to just get back to making it a habit.  I love riding my bike.  Everyone here knows that.  In spite of this, I have to put myself in the mindset that I am going to ride and then ride the best I can for the day.  My son in law and I were talking about physical training.  He was counseling someone in his army unit who has trouble with PT.  The person asked, "Does it get better?"  My son in law had what I thought was a brilliant answer.  "It gets easier, a lot easier, but it never gets better".  I have to agree.  I have a much easier time running and cycling than ever but it still hurts at the end of the day.  I always strive to do just a little better than before.

 

Who would WANT to perform activities like that? Lol...

Thanks, Mike, I believe in subliminal thoughts.  And I know I've got'ta make walking a habit.  I was sick today and will hopefully get back to walking tomorrow.  My cholesterol is  high and that will be a good motivator.

Yesterday I started walking with Leslie again and I began "tapping" for motivation.  I made it through 1-mile.  But today ...

 

I feel like bragging (in a humble way). Early this morning I started with tapping for motivation with ... Brad Yates.

Then I did a 7-minute warmup out of Lisa Lyons (old) book Body Magic. I found my cheat sheet with all the poses (yoga, etc) on a card with stick figures I made about 100 years ago. And, oh wow!, I didn't realize I was so stiff. I couldn't even do a "shoulder stand", when I use to be able to do the "crow". But my stiffness will all change a little each day, thanks to my two motivation gurus, Brad Yates and Jesus.

 

Then I walked 1-mile with Leslie Sansones. And I may walk with her again later this afternoon.

 

And then I fixed a Keto breakfast with zoodles, chopped chicken thighs, sweet chopped tomatoes and fresh grated parmesan cheese. Big sigh ...

I do a 2 mile walk to Leslie in the morning, then 1-2 walks in the neighborhood.  100 pulse after today's' first venture.

A little while ago I ran into a fantastic tapper at YouTube. This is the first time I have ever listened to him. His name is Nick Ortner. This guy uses tapping to help you get back ... all the way back ... to whatever negative force is holding you in a form of self-persecuting bondage. He helps you help yourself to permanently get rid of fear, pain, rejection, anger ... to heal yourself of whatever negative belief is there. If anyone is interested you will find him on YouTube.

 

Oh, and yes, he does help you stay focused to lose weight.

Ran, if you like Leslie, you will surely like EFT.  I'm now tapping on all destructive thoughts, as they come up in a day.  But mostly I tap for MOTIVATION to complete everything that is on my bucket list.  And losing weight is my top priority right now, which includes (of course) getting a CONSISTENT handle on carbs and gluten.  Walking is hard for me sometimes because of my hip-joint aches but I'm GENTLY pushing through it and the Yoga stretches help, too. 

 

Please forgive me for going on and on about EFT but I just so deeply believe in the principles that founder, Gary Craig, has given us.  Gary wants us to be healthy in mind and body.  And he has given us the tools to work with though his genuinely open and honest selfless service to mankind.

  • First, EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques and was founded by Gary Craig in 1995. Its earlier forms involved stimulating the acupuncture meridians while tapping on them with the fingertips ... that’s why it is often called "Tapping."
  • Official EFT encompasses both "Tapping" (now called Gold Standard EFT)... AND... our latest advancement, Optimal EFT.
  • Optimal EFT is more powerful than our previous "Tapping" because it involves direct access to our ultimate healing power within. We call this power The Unseen Therapist (a non-denominational name for God, Allah, Source or any other name you choose).
  • We will train you to directly access this power so that you can produce healing results that reach beyond all man-made methods. To maintain consistency, however, it is only taught here.

Thank You for those sites.  After losing 55 pds a while back, I do have a new mind-set, positive thoughts about starting over.  Unfortunately, my wife does not (like) the new Me.   Slimming down I get clothes that fit now and Salespeople say 'Good Morning' to me now.  Let a few pounds get back to me, so now I just need to drop 5 pds,   very hard at my age.  Pretty soon I will asking the forum about Medicare.  In a way I see it will cost more.

@ran23 - I am curious, why does your wife not like the new you?  Is it a physical reason or is it because of the mental adaptation you had to undergo?  If you are not comfortable answering this publicly, feel free to PM me.  

 

I have not had anyone "not like" what I have become but some relationships I have are profoundly changed.  Not necessarily better or worse, just different.

 

I have noticed that I get more respect and courtesy in public as well since losing all the weight.  There is a stigma attached to obesity that I am well aware of having been there and encountered it.

You are most welcome.  Gary Craig is a wonderful kindred spirit. 

 

I know why your wife doesn't like the new you.  It's because now you've turned into this dreamy "hunk" and all the women in your community are giving you the double/triple take.  (Nah, just teasing)  I imagine you feel 100% better with that weight off you.  And you know, when we feel better , we get a healthy glow about us.  I want that glow.

I think when I lost those 55 pds in 7 weeks, she tried also with 'online diet foods'.  I have kept most of it off, and stopped stopped oversize nothing clothes and traditional Men's wear that fits. NO, I do not walk around in tie and jacket every day.  except for walking, you seldom see me in sneakers and jeans. Just life.    biggest change?   Salespeople talking to me where they used to ignore me.  Today is the one day a week that I will jump into a jacket and tie to visit the Men's Store.

Gail was a little apprehensive when I lost all the weight.  She felt that I might not be attracted to her any longer after getting fit.  We have found, to both our relief, that was not the case.  I won't go into details because it is not appropriate but our intimacy has actually become more satisfying for both of us after I lost the weight and became fit.  That, in turn, allowed us to build a stronger bond between one another.  She now accepts that I want to be fit and will take the time to do it.

I think I don't belong here anymore.  Goodbye, happy people.
