Slow And Steady Wins The Race

I’ve been dieting on and off since 1972 after I had my first child. I tried many diet plans, read many books, saw fat doctors. On again, off again pounds, losing weight just didn’t happen. Because of various health problems I take many prescription medications so taking even the best diet pills would cause counter effects as well as side effects. I knew I had to shed pounds though. In January determined to turn myself around, I started going to a weight loss group. The instructor talked about the importance of water, exercise, nourishment, and food supplements. It all made sense and helped me get the right mind set to help myself. I started counting calories, carbohydrates, and protein and returned to a physician who specializes in dealing with obese people. I am losing little by little. As I drop a size I box out the clothes I outgrow. From 26-28 I am now 14-16 in tops; however, my bottom is moving slower. Come to think of it so am I.

  1. Congratulations on not giving up – you have a wonderful attitude. I quit smoking, after numerous attempts, but going to a group. Support makes a huge difference, doesn’t it?

  2. WOW. ……..That is so fantastic! You are sure doing a great job and keep on moving slow if it is working for you 🙂

  3. Debbie,

    I think it comes of just as it went on slowly if it is meant to be a permanent change not one for the scale like fighters weigh in.

  4. I think slow and steady is the way to go. I think it’s crazy when people do these diets where they’re supposed to lose like 10 pounds in three days. It’s just not healthy. 2 lbs a week is recommended. I’ve been trying to lose weight since I had my second child two years ago, and it’s finally starting to drop off. Another 14 pounds and I will be quite happy with myself!

  5. This is a challenge I face also. Congratulations on your good habits and all best wishes for your continued success!
