5 inches

I lost 5 inches in my waist, I realized the secret , for me , anyway! Protein!!!!!

I needed to eat more protein, especially in the mornings. I am getting more exercise but it’s mostly because I feel better so want to do more. After a certain age it’s harder to loose and the things we did as teens or younger adults just don’t work anymore.

I already eat pretty healthy. I don’t drink soda or surgery drinks, I hardly drink coffee anymore. I have one problem and it’s dairy. I’m not lactose intolerant, I am dairy intolerant! Who knew it was different!! I’m also not much of a meat eater. Protein, lots of dairy and meat!

Ok so I got a free app , tons of free health apps out there!, I don’t count calories but I watch my water amount, watch my steps and the app I use has daily exercise plans on it. I use Better Me. I started to see roughly how many calories I was burning up in a day and ate high protein but low calories foods. There are great recipes on the app too. I stretch out everyday, do the daily routines ( when I remember) and just over all feel good!!!



I am a woman of many thoughts and ideas on anything creative,upcycling or frugal, love to take pictures especially of nature and my grandkids all while I fight the good fight of illness both mental and physical. I appreciate friendly criticism and love comments!!! So, don't be shy, talk to me...
