The Diet

Today is the first day of my diet. And so far I think I’ve stuck to the plan.

In my books, all success no matter how small is success nonetheless. Even more so considering some of my previous adventures to get healthy.

Having seen a few of my coworkers meet success, I’ve signed up for the New Lifestyle Diet in hope that the regimented (and portion controlled) plan will help me see a similar transition to better health.

Combining 7 portion controlled meals with a 1 defined “Healthy Meal” (4oz of lean meat & 2c of veggies for dinner), the idea is that by “training” me to distribute healthy meals throughout the day and consider portion size, I’ll be able to better maintain my weight upon completion of the diet. And on top of my new eating habits, I also need to include a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise each day – the recommended exercise for beginners like me is a brisk walk.

Where you all come in is the support I’ll need to get through this. While much of the load will be borne by me, I’m empowering each and every one of you to kick my ass (I don’t swear often, so consider this serious) if it looks like I’m wavering. Help me keep sight of the goal & provide encouragement if need be. Join in on the conversation I’ve started on Twitter (#lyterforce is the official hashtag) & Facebook. Considering this crowd-sourced support!

If you’re doing the same thing, don’t be afraid to ask me for help. Let us share our trials and tribulations as we make an investment in our health and well-being! I’ll keep you honest if you promise to keep me honest.

And maybe we can re-write that book to show that our small successes were in fact one giant amount of success.

It’s life you know.

  1. see ya on the garry point trail … 🙂 steveston to terra nova..

  2. Doing good Goldie! Keep up the great effort!!
    Lupo and I started the Paleo/Primal/Caveman whatever you want to call it diet. Basically cutting out ALL grains, sugar, processed foods. So far so good. Other than no breads etc it feels like there’s lots we can have and there’s not too much emphasis on portion size. We should try to meet up for a brisk walk sometime! I know we’ve tried in the past…but for reals this time!
