    The diary of the reluctant dieter

    Greetings to all who visit and thank you for being here!

    I'm a woman, Di, 45, with about 6 kg too many. I wanna have a BMI of 23. I'm slightly above 25.

    I've been reading a lot about dieting. My problem: I don't wanna diet and put the weight back on. I think when one puts it back on, it's more difficult to lose it again. And when will this stop?

    I'll only diet if I think I can keep it off. Because I'm afraid of yo-yo-ing. I'm afraid of sabotaging my metabolism. I'm afraid to lose muscle.

    What I decided to do is to control the calories, yes, to avoid eating in excess. I'll very slowly decrease the calorie intake, but really slowly. Because I don't wanna have my metabolism decreasing.

    But the main thing: I'll exercise. That will be tough, because I suffer from an herniated disc (lumbar) and that gives me a lot of pain, when I make a wrong move. I have to be careful.

    I'll change my way of exercising. At the moment, I'm a couch potato, but I've exercised in the past. When I go for a jog, like yesterday, I can go from couch potato to easily jogging 40 minutes.

    But the jogging isn't really the most effective way, it seems. I need to build muscle. That will help me boost my metabolism.

    At my age, it seems building muscle is really a difficult thing to do. I'm reading about it a lot. If you have information on that, please, please, please, share it with me. Remember: results of research for men and/or young women can't be transposed to middle life women like yours, truly.

    But I will do what I can. I'll aim to workout my muscles for 20 minutes, 4 times a week.

    I wanna have a personal trainer teaching me how to do it to avoid risks. I have the perfect person to teach me, because my brother in law is a used to be a weight lifter. I wanna do things at home. We have the equipment and if we need something else, I'll buy.

    I'd love to have a personal trainer come to teach me at home, but I don't know if I can get one. Money isn't a problem, but I've been contacting some on the phone and I can't get them interested to help a woman my age. :-) No kidding! When I tell them my age, they suddenly become too busy.

    So, this diary won't have fantastic changes. It'll happen slowly, if it happens at all. But I'll post any loss here.

    I wish you all success in your pursuits!
    And thank you very much for any motivation you can give me at all.

    My love to all who are going through this fight!

    Hi Di,

    Found you! I cant believe your experience with finding a personal trainer, I wouldn't of even thought they would care about your age, very unprofessional.

    I like your slow and steady approach. A lot of people just want a quick fix, and as you said, the weight will come back on just as quickly.

    I wish you the greatest of success in your journey keep us posted!

    Thank you so much, Rhino! Success to you, too!
    I'm here often on my phone, so, please forgive me my typos. Also, I don't speak English, therefore so many mistakes. I'm really sorry.

    My new weight: 67.3 kg.

    I'm happy, because I'm only 1 pound from "normal" (BMI).

    What I'm doing:
    eating a lot more proteins than before,
    weight lifting (3 times till now, aiming to 3 times per week)
    trying to eat less
    jogging and cycling (aiming to do it at least twice per week)

    I think I can keep doing this for the rest of my life, if my herniated disc doesn't stop me from exercising.

    My aim is to reeducate myself and lose weight with minimum sacrifice.

    I don't wanna lose muscle, nor bone, only fat. Ideally.

    My best wishes to you.
