Diet and Exercise Plans for 8/6/16

Diet plan for 8/6/16
No diet
No diet structure
No realization without action
No guilt
No fear
No doubts
No worries

Exercise Plan for 8/6/16
No worries
No cares
No lack of understanding or wisdom
No things to follow as far as an actual diet goes instead of planning for a lifestyle change

The above plans are what have been holding me back for a long time.  I couldn't afford to be fat.  I can't afford to gain weight, but mind if I do because in my head if I have gotten fatter, then in the beginning I could see and see a big number.  Wait a minute, I want to lose weight now, but why do I eat so much?  I need to make plans.  The problem is, I rarely, if ever follow them.

I realize now that I need to take two steps back and meditate so that my mind is clearer and my points and my exercise goals will be more precise.  The above mindset is the total sum of a not so clear mind and an all-or-nothing, black-and-white view of things, but corrupted by being tired and just not caring.  I just didn't give a crap.  Dieting is a temporary, vicious cycle.  I can do it but only for a while.  I want to do something more permanent.  I want to be fit, healthy, and look fit and healthy.

I have to take better care of myself.  I have to first take care of my mind before I can take care of the rest.  My mindset is in need of change.  I don't want to "start all over" and "wipe the slate clean". Maybe I should just not worry so much and take it slow one day at a time and not beat myself up when things don't get perfect or just when I make a bad decision.  It will be hard, but I have to learn to make a mistake and grow.  Learning from a mistake helps me because I will grow.  In turn, I will no longer complain everyday.  I will be grateful and thankful.  There will be more to my life and more to my prayers than ever before.

Re-post from July 20

I am much better than planning meals than actually following them.  However, the fact that that is a struggle is no secret.  I have learned that consuming between 1200 and 1800 calories is not a bad goal to have.  However, I have just realized that maybe, just maybe learning or adding to a diabetic plan would be what or how to plan for 1800 calories.  However, I have done something else.  Yesterday, I wondered if consuming just 1000-1100 calories is too few.  In nearly all cases outside of medical supervision, and also for a short period, yes.  Eating those few calories is tempting but knowing this is me, it would be difficult.  In fact, it would be frustrating.  There would be a lot of plotting and planning and a lot of patience in formulating such a plan much less actually consuming those few calories.  Should I follow examples from people who claimed or rumored to have consumed those few calories?  Would it be healthy to consume those few calories?  Less than 1500 for me would be quite low, but more than 1800 would be quite high.  It is tempting for an impatient and frustrated person such as myself to consume or at least try to, consume between 1000-1100 calories.  I would lose more than 2 pounds a week, but only for a period of time.  If I were to decide to consume more than 1500-1800 calories per day?  I know myself too well.  I know that 2000 calories would be way too much, but it seems that that is the only way I would get full.  However, I realize that there are the upsides and downsides for someone who is largely sedentary and even more impatient and anxious such as myself.  I could use a lot of planning and wise counsel in this.
