Very, very slowly! Everyday I think it will get faster because I control myself more. I have not solved this problem, but I won't give up. For awhile I was losing 10 lbs. a year. Could be better but at least I was losing. My doctor is delighted with 1 lb. per week. I am absolutely convinced that losing quickly is not smart. I have read often lately that only reducing 500 cal. per day is the best way. That is 1 lb. a week just like my doctor said. Gee-maybe he got something right! I usually give him a hard time because I read so much on the Internet. Another way is eat 250 cal. less a day and increase exercise by 250 cal.
Oh--and y doctor said to add a zero to my present weight to tell how many calories I am eating now to maintain. that is about 2500 per day to maintain! So I can lose weight eating 2000 cal. per day! If I lose weight, of course the cal. need to go down, too.
Today I stop and think before putting anything into my mouth. HALT! Hungry? Angry? Lonely? Tired?
It feels like I am not moving, but I guess I am. Even turtles eventually move from place to place. chris
