Diets? Been there and done a ton of those! Exercise? Just name it I have tried it.
No I am no longer considered obese. Yes I was considered to be obese because I weighed thirty pounds over what they think I should weigh.
But not once did any doctor take in consideration my muscles. Yes I have nice size muscles. I have little fat on my legs and hip area because I do walk and run , a little old lady arm fat but I also paint houses and mow lawns with a push mower.
I carry all fat in my tummy area. BUT I am loosing weight and in the tummy area. No diets and no more exercise than I already get by working and walking and running.
So…. How am I doing this weight lost?
I am doing what I heard two doctors say, once to me and once to someone else.
Don`t worry about what you are eating so much as how much, Tony`s heart doctor said ” fix your normal plate and then take off half, you will lose weigh.” And then I was getting a diabetes check up and my doctor said ” drop twenty pounds and I am sure we can get you off the pill. He added ” just eat half of what you eat now and get up and move more.”
So not extra anything, just cut it in half. I did this and before I knew it I had lost eleven pounds.
I got out my Summer clothes and they are all to big! I dropped another size! But I still feel the same.
Last summer I was a size 13/14 in shorts and I wore extra large in shirts.
Today I bought me two new outfits, Shorts size 11/12 and shirts are now a large.
I almost busted out in song while in the dressing room trying on clothes 🙂
For me to drop a size is amazing.
I have to thank God for helping me because he is putting the right people in my life at the right time.
Now, do you want to drop a few pounds? just eat half!
