AHA Weight loss tips
When I first became pregnant in the early nineties I bounced up to over 200 lbs. We lost our baby and just as I was starting to lost that excess baby weight we became pregnant again and once again I quickly bounced over 200 lbs and again we lost that baby then my brother committed suicide and I quickly spiraled into a black hole of despair and maintained my so unhealthy weight. When my mother was called home I lost 10 lbs of it and was feeling better at least losing some but then had some physical issues come up with me and put that 10 lbs right back on. I have been fighting this battle ever since.
Now I am finding myself losing 3-4 lbs and maybe putting back on two; but with my knee handicap I am limited with what exercises I can do safely without tearing up my knee again.
So I have been trying to eat smaller portions, have cut out pop and drinking more water but alas I still like my sweets and I am horrible at eating breakfast. With my varied work schedule it is hard to maintain a healthy diet. But I have been trying to snack on healthy snacks at work instead of Bit o Honeys or Taffy.
So if you are like me it is nice to have encouraging reasonable ideas on weight loss.
I really enjoyed this AHA's ideas and so here I am sharing them with you.
To all like me who is trying to lose this excess weight and get back to a healthier weight, good luck and know that I am right there taking a step or two forward and two steps back with you but I am still trying and no I am not stepping on a scale each day way to depressing for me.
I am going by my clothes fitting looser or tighter on a bad week:)
Hang in there one day we shall succeed and high fives to us!
