Have you looked at yourself, really looked and thought: “Hum I like what I see!” in a non self-praising way? :)
In the past week, I have been doing exactly that. I'm also evaluating if my goal of losing another 26 pounds is desirable. If I do decide to reach my goal I will be at the same weight I was in my early twenties.
But would it be too thin for a 55 years old man? I don't know, I gave myself this goal mostly because it will bring my BMI to 23.5 (in the 'health' range). But can I trust an Index about ME? Aren't we all different with different metabolism and body? Shouldn't I keep some fat in case I need it later (because of a medical emergency maybe)?
My answers might be in my life style; I have been eating what I want and need, and I'm losing weight. I slightly increased the amount I eat and I'm still losing weight. I even slowed down my training to give my back some relief and I’m still losing;
My weight might stop dropping once it reaches the perfect weight for my lifestyle. I have been thinking about maintaining my weight but do I really need to? Everything should just balance itself out at some point.
I'm not complaining, just sharing! Apparently, I don't even know how to stop this weight dropping anymore.
Before making a decision, I'll first wait for my blood test results.
Maybe my subconscious mind is trying to trip me. But this mind is not the brightest because it still doesn't understand I don't want to eat crap anymore!
On a less self-doubt subject, both our daughters are in the same time zone as us right now. The last time it happened was during the Christmas holiday.
There are some big changes in our oldest kid’s life; She is moving to Halifax (Nova Scotia) and starting a new job. She bought her first house, which comes with all the appliances, a big backyard, fence, deck and a live in boyfriend.
Who knows, maybe now with a boyfriend in the family picture, my wife and I most desperate void will be fulfilled before our passing: grand-kids!
We won't put pressure on our daughter, she can decide how many and when but, who knows how long her parents have on this earth and how sad they are every day because their friends have so many grand-kids to brag about and share pictures of.
By the way, in my posts, she is the anonymous commentator who signs WWE (Wicked Witch of the East). LOLI am just joking, both our daughters made their own life choices and are doing just great, I am so proud of them!
