A choice, a decision, a commitment, a FAVOR I do myself.
Don't complicate it, friends! No regrets here.
Last March, I fell and broke my hip. I got a new hip and began eating 3 meals a day while in the hospital. I kept up the 3 meal a day habit in the weeks of rehab. This was a change from the Fast-5 lifestyle I had been living for a couple of years. Besides the change in meal patterns, I found myself eating more sweets and making silly food choices. The pounds began to add up.
On September 23rd, I had a knee replaced. While I ate meals in the hospital, I determined that when I got home, I would return to the Fast-5 lifestyle. This means eating within a 5 hour "window" and "fasting" the other 19 hours of the day.
I am thankful for the decision I made and for the results that I've already achieved. This morning, I wrote the words at the beginning of this post on the Fast-5 facebook page.
Soon I expect to ADD more walking to my knee rehab exercises and will continue to SUBTRACT pounds until I am a healthy weight again. (It should take about another month.)
