Day 93- 20 year plan

My thoughts on 100 days of Weight Loss by Linda Spangle

Create a long term routine for managing your weight-

Spangle starts off with these questions to help you start  your long term planning with this pre-think-

How will you eat?
How will you exercise?
How will you take care of your emotional needs?
What types of things can you see yourself consistently for 20 years or longer?

Then, Spangle has you write your 20 year plan by answering these 5 areas:

  1. Seven things that I can do forever: What I can do for the next 20 years?
  2. 3 favorite foods and a plan for managing them: How can I incorporated my favorite foods into my plan? (use smaller amounts, less often, two bite rule.)
  3. My exercise plan and how I'll make it work: What is my exercise plan?
  4. Barriers and Life issues- a plan for handling them: What are my barriers?
  5. Immediate crisis plan if I begin gaining weight: What is my immediate action plan for when I begin gaining weight?
My 20 year plan is going to take me sometime to figure out. What would you put on your plan?

ONLY YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN!
YOU CAN DO IT!
NEVER GIVE UP!

Hmmm. Those are pretty hard questions for me. I have trouble with those "into the future" questions. With the things you can do forever, is that supposed to be anything? Or physically? I'm going to have to think about this!

Finally - having the hardest time today posting. Went to the help area - now we have comments as a "pop up page"...

Anyways - these are great questions. I am going to work on my list, since I needed a reminder of doing this.
