When I finally moved my cattle down to their next pasture - and farther away from the house - I realized that the pounds I regained in the last couple of weeks were due to dropping the mile and 1/3rd which I was walking cross-country every day in checking on them.
For I had my "patient patient" up at the house by now, and so the herd was also there - giving me only a few hundred feet of walking daily, if that.
So, since the calorie intake was not reduced along with the calorie "burning", extra weight was restored. (Wondered why I wasn't hungry at night.) And that's the advice with this Shaklee weight loss program which I didn't heed.
The rule then becomes - sleep when you're tired, drink when you're thirsty, and eat only when you are hungry: but only enough to satisfy, not to satiate. (Pleasantly full, not stuffed.)And do get some substitute activity if you find yourself temporarily at odd ends.
(Needless to say, I did about 2 miles to check my other pastures, where I could find elderberries this year, and how a remote patch of blackberries was doing...)
One month more of this - and we'll see how it progresses.
