Weight Loss is so healthy!!
Thursday, May 18, 2017
I never realized the impact being excessively overweight could have on so many things not just on how I look or my clothes fit. I went to my doc yesterday for pre-op exam.
I am down to 166.6. 29 lbs lost 👍🏻
I heard from my doc this morning regarding my blood work yesterday and everything is normal!!! This is the first time in 5 years that everything came back normal. She told me back then that I had a fatty liver. That is also normal now. She said to keep losing weight and that would continue to help my overall health :) I love seeing results from all these steps.
I have learned that you don't need to do killer workouts to lose weight. Just walking each day and moving every hour has helped me lose the weight. I used to do Jillian Michaels and lift weights etc and I still gained. When I got my "bad" report in August, I knew I had to do something. I learned that you don't have to do major exercise each day. Just strive to move 10 minutes each hour. Due to my shoulder and hip, I am very limited in what I can do. I just push for those 10,000 steps. I started with a 2,000 step goal each day and pushed that to 5,000 etc. I kept moving the goal until I reached 10,000 per day. Before my hip went kaput, I was doing 15,000 - 20,000 steps most days.
I moved my hip surgery to May 30th. I can't do much now anyway so I might as well get it done. I think the bathroom remodel will be done this weekend so that will make life easier. I have been very careful about my eating. I eat half of what I have if it is not cooked at home.
Still working on at least 10000 steps each day, but it's not so easy anymore. Just hoping to maintain for the 4 weeks on crutches.
I feel good!!!
