I started this episode of my weight loss journey tipping the scales at the high 220s and yesterday I showed I was down to 187. One of my enemies is snacking, particularly after supper. As I inch towards my goal of 175, I've become more dependent on plain yogurt and frozen fruit pieces to satiate my desire for food. And this includes pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top. We also have it at meals.
When you think of plain yogurt, your first reaction might be "yuck." At first, it seems tasteless but after awhile, you can taste its nuances and layers, especially with the fruit.
After I reach my goal, I know I need to keep it off because of my carotid artery disease. One is blocked 100 percent and the other less than 20. I know that if I'm not at peak health for a 72 years old, I would be a prime candidate for a stroke. That's motivating.
Now, I need to get the exercise in line.
