I Can and Will Lose Weight.

A brand new day. I'm starting over again on Spark People. Hopefully this time will the charm that helps me lose weight. I watched the show "Extreme Weight Loss" last night and something in that program inspired me to try again. I began to think back on all the times I have actually tried to lose weight, and it occurred to me that I make way too many excuses for not losing.

A brand new day. I'm starting over again on Spark People. Hopefully this time will the charm that helps me lose weight. I watched the show "Extreme Weight Loss" last night and something in that program inspired me to try again. I began to think back on all the times I have actually tried to lose weight, and it occurred to me that I make way too many excuses for not losing.

1st excuse: We don't buy the right types of food (fresh veggies and fruit for the week on a daily basis),

Resolution: that's not an excuse not to watch what I do eat. I need to buckle down and make the most of the foods we do bring into the house, eat smaller portions, and try to cook it as healthy as possible.

2nd excuse: I can't really exercise because of my problems I have with my knees and heart.

Resolution: I can go walking more, I have a stepper I can do while listening to SP radio, I have a portable cycle that I can do while I'm sitting here online, I have hand weights, also something I can do while sitting, I can also do yoga while sitting.

3rd excuse: I have very little support and encouragement.

Resolution: I need to encourage myself and not be bothered by what other people think.

I CAN lose weight, I WILL lose weight.

Alot of walking. My daughter and I have been walking around the city park and walking to the grocery store instead of driving there. Plus I've been trying to waatch how much I eat.

Hi,
Welcome to the battle. A pound a week sounds like a reasonable goal, but your cardiologist will give a better opinion.

My mom had a heart attack at 47. She wasn't as fortunate as you. My dad had one at 53, he has had to have a pacemaker put in, and now 15 years later his heart is enlarged. But really all in all, he is and has been doing really well. He eats great and walks every day. He also takes his medicine and sees his cardiologist. His weight loss has been up and down.

I worry a lot about a heart attack, and weight wise I am way above you. But so far, my tests are good. I do think the more I can do, the better my heart will do. Everything helps. I had the advantage of an early warning of my parents and my doctor watches me like a hawk. I'll feel better when I can get more weight off though.

Take care of yourself, and you can live a long and happy life.
