Someone to encourage you and who is knowledgable about nutrition is almost a must-have if you’re trying to lose 100 pounds like I am. My goal is my high school weight.
My sister is taking a break from her bf, and is living here with the family. She knows everything about nutrition and is in very good shape. She’s inspired me to start eating better, and without that influence I wouldn’t have even begun.
I want to lose weight so I can see if I’m a good candidate for a pacemaker so maybe I’ll stop passing out all the time. I also want to be able to run again. I really miss running. Plus it scares me that if my daughter were to run away toward the road I wouldn’t be fast enough to save her.
When I pass 300 on the scale, that’s when I panic and sooner or later a plan forms to lose weight, although this latest episode was a bit late in reacting. I’m at 315 lbs right now, having lost about twenty pounds. I hope I can keep it up.
It’s weird for me the whole impetus to weight loss. I was always a skinny guy but Invega left me over 50 lbs heavier than I ever was. I just recently lost over 45 lbs, I still have 15 to go but I remembered in August when I was 205 that is when ■■■■ just hit the fan for me… when the nurse had to move the weight over to the 200 mark I was so ashamed… I started logging my weight, my basal calories burned, and how many calories I burned while working out. That really helped me stay on track- I would really like working out and weighing myself after then logging it all. I felt like it was my job. But yea it was all myself and it’s been since August that I’ve been working at this. The key is literally working out, no sugar, really low carbs, enough protein, and maybe 2-2.5 meals a day. I’d be able to lose it easier if I wasn’t on ap’s That slows my metabolism so it’s hard to make a difference in the Calories in vs calories out ratio. But good luck. Stick to that quick rule and no more than 10 lbs a month of weight loss otherwise it’s bad for u apparently
