Self-discipline isn't working for me so I've decided to go public. My weight is up to where my clothes are really tight and I hate that. Worse, my muscles are losing tone. I'm flapping all over the place. It's gross. All this effects my self-esteem, energy and over-all happiness. Losing weight isn't as important to me as getting fit is. Of course I want to look good but I believe we all look good when we feel good. Basically, I want to be as fit as my fifty-four year old body can be. I know what I need to do, it's a matter if doing it.

So for the foreseeable future I will journal everything I eat and every exercise I do on my Fighting for Fit @ 50 page (over on the right side bar under Email Me). Using the new category Fit @ 50, I will post fitness info and insights. I do not endorse any particular diet or regimen, only healthy living.

Research shows that journaling is key to a successful fitness regimen. So that's where I'm going to start. If you'd like to join me I'd love the company.
