To be or not to be. . . . .for menopause

Govanhill photoshoot at the Arches, Glasgow: LaughingEver get asked for advice?  A good friend emailed me with questions about her diagnosed osteoarthritis.  Being a pharmacist, a medical professional, I decided to help my friend, but perhaps not from the direction she was expecting.  Or at least not right away.  When we are faced with lifestyle decisions as we mature, what considerations influence the direction you take?  What do you see as your “quality of life” goal?

I cannot speak for others, but hopefully giving myself as an example, explore some philosophy behind the decisions that move our lives forward.

WP_000067Being a single working Mom, I was compelled to make some decisions regarding my  health and well being a couple of years ago.  When we make decisions about our health, that in turn influences our involvement with the people in our lives, those who have a vested interested in our lives, our autonomy going forward in our lives, and activities that we stay involved with or modify in some way.

DSCN0306I started with my weight management a little over two years ago.  As a single working Mom, the “buck stops here” so to speak.  I do not have a boyfriend or husband vested in me or my life.  I have a teenager at home, and work full time in my profession.  I manage, to a greater or lesser degree, to have a horse hobby, with two horses at home on my small acreage, friends to ride out with, and lesson work as can be managed.

DSCF3459My goal is to guard my self sufficiency as I mature in life, and continue to give my best to my daughter, and participate in my horse sport.  Being physically healthy starts with an assessment of weight management, as with proper management we can control our numbers for cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure, and ease the burden on our muscular-skeletal system.

martini anyone?I was at a crossroads, I had to make a decision, and I had to do it.  I had to step up and deliver for myself.  I went with the Dynamite 180 program, you can review my progress from the beginning.  I’ve been successful in my weight management for over two years.  Pick your plan, I’ve been successful with this one, and can apply the protocol to tune up as I go al0ng.  I have experienced in the past some weight fluctuation, and the Dynamite 180 program gives me the tools to deal and keep on track.

DSCN0327So, first, lose the weight, bring your numbers to normalcy, have better balance on your horse, take the stress off your body, eliminate much of the discomfort the extra weight causes, have more energy, and get a better night’s sleep!

Stay tuned for the next step in the journey!

Here’s to the best you can be, or want to be, for menopause!

Health affirmations for menopause

Longford River one fine summerHere we are, coming out of winter, ready to shed the extra pounds from hibernation and comfort food!  I am!  Sorted through the closet for my favorite jeans, OK, time to lose the muffintop and the accompanying extra layer of insulation!

It helps to remind myself what I want this to accomplish.  When I’m thinner and lighter, I have better balance riding my horse.  I don’t want to outgrow the saddle I just bought!  I feel like I am detoxifying my body when I tighten up my diet.  I love being lighter and thinner!

I find that it is a big help when I am involved in something I am passionate about.  For me, this involves my horse habit.  I admit, a little vanity creeps in for the sake of taking pictures with my horse looking more fit and trim!  And I feel more like myself when I’ve shed the extra pounds!

I’ve hung my jeans on the front of the closet where I can see them every morning.  I can get them zipped up, but oh, they are pinching!  My goal is to be in them comfortably by March 21st, for attending the Northwest Horse Fair and Expo in Albany, Oregon!

I’ve got my Dynamite 180 and my food protocol.  Click on the menu tab above to get yours!

Let’s tune up together for menopause and beyond!

Support Group for Dynamite 180 diet

Sweet Potato Vine on the DeckWhen I started the Dynamite 180 diet program, the Dynamite company was running a “biggest loser” contest.  There were four of us in our group, with weigh-in’s every Tuesday morning.  It added to our motivation!

Since then, the Dynamite company has started a Dynamite 180 Support Group on Facebook!  Along with following the protocol to attain your goal weight, tap into this support group!

Search for Dynamite 180 Support and tap in!

Here’s to your success with the Dynamite 180 protocol!

Maintenance on the Dynamite 180 diet

The Dynamite 180 diet program is great!  It takes you through weight loss, stabilization, and maintenance!  Maintenance is keeping within two pounds of your weight goal, working with old and new food habits.  This is the time you add back in some of your past favorites, seeing how they work, and which ones will never be a good choice for your diet plan.  If you push yourself over the edge, you can tighten up your diet with the food choices on the protocol.  I have found the Dynamite 180 diet to be very manageable!  I love being lighter and thinner!

Check it out!  Grab the link on the menu tab above, then click on Human on the left, then click on 180.  Scroll down and view the video, it gives you the “skinny” as does my previous blogs!

Here’s to your healthy lifestyle choices, for menopause, before, and beyond!

Order the starter pak direct from the website, you’ll get it along with the protocol within two to three days!

35 pounds lost on the Dynamite 180 program!

P7032720 Lomofied full scale lots of extra blur scaledI decided to go off stabilization and lose another five pounds!  Well, mission accomplished!  So am back on stabilization, focusing on the protocol food list without the 180 drops for three days, then continuing for another couple of weeks, then on to maintenance.  I love how the Dynamite 180 program teaches you how to live beyond the diet!

Here’s to your health for menopause, and at any life stage you find yourself!

180 diet stabilization is working!

34/365 - B is for Battling the BulgeAlmost two weeks into stabilization!  This plan continues to work!  Again, for a three week period, I continue to eat off the food list, with no 180 drops, journal daily, weigh daily, keeping within two pounds of my goal weight.

It’s been easy, with no fluctuation the first week, then a one pound loss in the last couple of days.  I have deviated a little with a couple of meals out, and some chocolate!  Still easily within stabilization goals!

Weighing daily helps remind me that yes, I truly did lose the weight, and to keep me on course with my food journaling.  I’m so grateful to be thinner and lighter, for my own health and wellness, and the trickle down effect with my family and horsemanship!

Weekly weigh in for menopause

ChainedOnly a little behind getting this posted!  Rather hectic going into the weekend, how about you?

Twenty five pounds lighter, thinner, heading for thirty pounds lost, and I’m going to keep on going!  This is fun, and amazing, and I’m seeing what clothes I can take to Goodwill now!

I have met my target on the jeans that I wanted to keep, one pair, with that lower cut waist, I didn’t think they would ever fit.  However, they are on, comfortable, with hardly a muffin top.  This pair is Wrangler Premium Patch (with stretch) bootcut low rise.  I’ve surprised myself on this one!

The food routine and choices remain satisfying, and sustaining, after all, we are busy women!

Take a look at the Dynamite 180 plan for your health for menopause, and beyond!  And also for the right here and now!

Weigh in day on Tuesday

Had the weigh in a couple of days ago, broke the over-twenty pound loss!  I’m excited!  I love being lighter and thinner!  Today I weighed myself, and am already on my way to thirty pounds weight loss!

Went through my closet and had to let loose of a few pairs of jeans that are now TOO BIG for me!  And, my bottom is shrinking!  I’ve lost 20 inches along the way!

While I was on vacation with my daughter, I gained half a pound.  When I was gone for a week with my horse, riding and camping, I lost two pounds!  And I did cheat a little…..

I continue to feel good, healthy, with good energy and mental acuity.  Dynamite provides a quality vitamin program to enhance your weight loss experience.  I really feel that this is for real, and I won’t be backsliding, I feel too good!

Here’s to your health for menopause and beyond!

Diet vacation management

Tuesday weigh in, gained less than half a pound.  I have one of those scales that measures in 0.2 increments.  Pick one up at your local discount store for under twenty dollars.

I’ve been on vacation with my daughter for the last two weeks.  Dietary management has really been quite easy!  I had one “off” day when in Stehekin.  I had a chicken sandwich, grilled, without the bun, thought I was doing well, until we decided to stop in Leavenworth for dinner.  We went to our favorite bistro, and I ordered a salad that seemed straightforward enough.

The salad came drowned in dressing.  Although I managed to eat the chicken and most of the added vegetables, I reminded myself to take nothing for granted, and order the dressing on the side!

The next day, we went to Lake Wenatchee to spend the day, and I astutely packed a picnic lunch!  Take a look at this cute, collapsible picnic basket.  It is insulated, and I used those ice pack things to keep things cool.  Worked great!  Look for it at your local discount store!

Again, salad dressing on the side, and pack a picnic!

Here’s to your easily managed dietary needs!
