RESIST (Carbs and Hate) is the word of my day and the weeks to come of weight management. Sometimes, you don't understand why the old habits don't seem to work but passivity is not the conclusion. Resisting passivity is the only next step. That's where I'm at in weight maintenance and the state of my country. Resist CARBS and HATE.
There was a time when reading or listening to someone suggesting that I treat myself with a bit more kindness would have been met with severe eye rolling. By "there was a time", I mean as recently as last month and I’m 74. But, today's episode highlights what has turned my deep eyerolls into acceptance and more importantly, even doing it. Breathe in. Breathe out. With kindness, begin again. Dieting, Living, closing your garage door. it simply goes better with a little kindness. It's the eve of Independence Day in the US. www.artofthediet.com
Episode 166: Your Car Knows How Much You Weigh. A spokesman for the Auto Association let that cat out the bag. I thought it should have led the news cycle.

"People Who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of who do." Isaac Asimov This podcast offers up what I know (for sure) about weight maintenance in an aging body: you have to eat less whether by choice or anxiety, eating less is the fundamental way to maintain a significant weight loss. It's not exercising more to maintain it is eating less to maintain. Telling the truth is not a marketing strategy these days and I don't just mean politics. But, here's a truth I made into fabric: "If chocolate isn't the answer, could you please repeat the question?" www.artofthediet.com www.patcoakley.com
74 years of living and what do I know? "Begin, again." is a successful mantra for my 10-year weight maintenance as well as a new (9 months) daily meditation practice. www.artofthediet.com

On her death bed, at 92 years old, she told Lorne, “Well, at least, I’m losing a little weight.” Lorne is determined not to spend the rest of her life worrying about this issue and the looping ride of the rollercoaster of weight gain and loss. She does not belong to a national weight loss program but is seeking out new ways to understand her issues and to deal with them. www.artofthediet.com email: firstname.lastname@example.org
