Okay. I am under the 350 pound mark.
Just barely. But I will take it.
I am insulin-dependent now and they keep telling me that if I continue to lose weight I can discontinue insulin – I’m in suspended judgment.
I know what to do:
Follow a lower carb lifestyle that consists of lean protein, as many fresh vegetables, steamed vegetables that I can handle due to my ostomy. Eat carb friendly fruit in moderation.
Don’t eat more than 20-25 grams of carbs per meal not exceeding 100 g of carbs per day.
Break up with all refined sugars. Period. End of story.
Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.
Meditate, pray, journal.
Exercise every single day.
Keep your appointments with your physicians and keep the communication open.
Learn to say no to yourself and others.
Create healthy boundaries.
It’s not about the number Dash it’s about the lifestyle. The weight will come off if you practice and follow the above.
Create new habits.
Have the mindset that you didn’t become morbidly obese overnight. You aren’t going to become height and weight appropriate overnight.
Live each day to its fullest because there are no guarantees.
