Just the real story.
I'm so lucky. My daughter visited me last April and showed me her diet (this one). She's lost over 60 pounds so far and is still going strong.
I decided that it looked just like what I needed and so far, so good. Of course, I haven't done as well as she has, but even so, I've lost 18 pounds and I'm still working at it. Slow and steady, that's me.
I figure that at this rate, it will take me THREE years to get where I want to be!!! That's just not going to work for me...I 'm going to have to do something about it. When I saw the doc last Monday he increased my thyroid prescription and we think that will make some difference. I've been rather logy and maybe that's the reason...so we'll see. Next weigh=in will be when I see him again on March 15th. BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH!!!!
In the meantime, I'm being a good girl and continuing to eat healthy and making every attempt to walk each day at least to the street corner and back. If I get to the supermarket or mall, that's even better. Funny how much easier it is to walk if I'm pushing that shopping cart.
