Some people in my family think losing weight may be unhealthy and that I might be taking it too far but yet being extremely overweight is ok ? (Yes there are more overweight people in my family than not and some are even in the MO range)
Weight watchers tells me based on my height -
“Your healthy weight range is 135 to 169 lbs.”
Today I weighed 164.1 - I’m at the high end of my healthy range.
My goal weight is 140- 150 .. I’m not sure what I’m aiming for I’m just eating better and exercising and will see how it shakes out.
My average weekly weight loss is 1.5 lbs. (over 2 lbs a week consistently can be unhealthy)
I eat a lot of food in little amounts through out the day and most of it is obscene amounts of fruits and vegetables.
I’m not anemic.. I’m not lacking in ANY vitamins and minerals to be exact.. Why? because I get tested regularly.
I don’t need meat..I don’t need dairy… I don’t need eggs.. if fact those things put me on track to follow in my father’s footsteps.. heart attacks, stints and 15-20 pills a day and not being able to do the thing you want because you don’t feel well and all your conversations revolve about how you feel or what Doctor you have to see. My Dr is VERY happy with how I have brought down my cholesterol levels.
Am I on a diet?
A “diet” implies at some point I’ll be done… I can not be “done”
Done would be stopping what I am doing now and going back to what I used to be doing. That is just stupid… where did that get me? Over 200 lbs with high cholesterol and getting out of breath just walking up the stairs and feeling unhappy and defeated.
I will always be vegan.. (my heart demands it)
I will always do some form of exercise (even if it’s just a walk around the block or dancing around the house)
I will always eat healthy food in healthy portions
This is a lifestyle change not a diet
As a very good friend pointed out to me… people who criticize others for doing something good for themselves need to look inside to see why they are doing it. Usually it has nothing to do with the person they are criticizing but a way to justify why they aren’t doing it themselves.
