Or at least that is what my doctor said to me. Granted I needed to lose some weight…ok, a lot of weight. But his answer to my question about how – just stop eating.
Given it was a doctor who said this you would think he would know what he is talking about. As a matter of fact, he could do with losing some weight himself. Wonder if he takes his own advice.
I learned a long time ago that doctors are not G-d and therefore they dont know everything. So you will be glad I didnt listen to him. I have learned to nod my head and say ok, but do as I please. My MIL used to say that to me….”You yes me to death and do as you please”….we got along so well. lol
And so it was at that time that I decided to join WW. Because with WW I can eat whatever I want as long as I track my points and it must be working because I am down 47 lbs. already. It has taken 1-1/2 years ( I am such a slow loser) but at least I am losing.
Now my doctor sees how I can do this and has given up telling me to stop eating….almost. Now he says I should do Intermittent Fasting. Really?
Tuesdays are my weigh in day. But I weigh in every morning in my bedroom. It keeps me on track and shows how I am doing.
This morning I went to WW and got the official weigh in which happens to be two pounds off my scale. But I did lose 1.4 lbs this week and am very happy. But I find besides the loss in pounds there are other losses.
Like the loss of inches so my clothes are now falling off me.
Like the loss of my huffing and puffing when I walk from point A to point B.
Like the loss of choking on the car seat belt because it is across my neck.
Like the loss of having difficulty putting on my socks and shoes.
Like the loss of pain in my knees when walking or climbing stairs.
Like the loss of pains in my stomach from eating too much.
It’s the only way I want to go. I started going down on May 1, 2017 and will continue to do so until I get to my destiny. It’s not an easy trip either. I have fallen a few times but I picked myself up and continued to go down.
And so as of this morning, I am down 40 lbs…and still planning on going down. Do you have a weight loss story?
