Physician tells you lose weight! Funny just had talked about dieting in my last blog. Knowing it is not easy to lose weight, a discussion followed on how much to lose, how long it should take and how to keep the weight off.
It was decided , lose 10 pounds in 6 months and keep it off. Excess weight affecting labs and overall health. So we had a heart to heart, eye opening talk about how to accomplish this. No bread, No potatoes, No sweets No fruit. No cereal. In other words something similar to a Keto or a low-carbohydrate diet. Broke my heart (almost) as I am a potato lover and always have been.
So here is what the plan is in order to achiew this and keep the weight off:
Start walking-only short distances at first and early in the day when the heat is not so bad. Really focus on this as it will also benefit how I look and how my clothese fit.
Follow the elimination of as many carbohydrate as possible, which will be difficult., but allow a treat once in a while especially if the scale starts to show a drop in weight. Don’t want to take the weight off fast, rather want to do it slowly and keep it off. No slippery slide here, no up and down.
Think take off 2 pounds a month and keep it off, so at the end of 6 months, a goal has been met and 10 pounds are gone. Maybe a treat yourself day, not necessarily with food, but maybe, and then get right back on the diet and lose another 10 pounds if necessary.
