I know this is an older topic but decided to reply anyway, as its a relevant topic on several levels.
1. You don't want to exercise 'full' as your lungs can't expand as fully, but a light something is a good idea. It's never a good idea to skip breakfast.
2. In general, I think it's a good idea to put the word diet out of your vocabulary.vthink of this process as a new you. A new way of eating. A new way of taking care of you. Diets don't work. We lose, but most gain it right back. Why? Because we don't let ourselves have the foods we like foe x amount of months to lose weight. Portions are what matter, and calories. I count calories, and just stay within my budgeted amount, and do my exercise routine.
3. Good for you on losing those pounds!
Walking is great exercise, I've found, even for those like me that are not in the best of health. I've still managed to lose inches, weight and feel better generally, all with walking and counting those calories.
I admit, I bought a digital food scale and a treadmill, bit there is no food that is off limits to me. I'm going to eat what I like. I'm just going to keep track. My last tip is to NEVER punish yourself if you have a day when you go over on calories. Leave yesterday where it belongs, in the past.
Oh, and drink water. If you're like me and hate it, ise those nice crystal light packets til you can learn to drink it. Baby steps and rewards.
Remember, when you punish yourself for slips, you make food and eating too important. Remember, I'm no doctor. These are just things I'm finding that are working for me. I've lost nearly 20 lbs in about 2 months.
I will be thinner and healthier if it kills me. We don't say diet in our house-ever. Diets fail!
