Back before Labor Day, I weiged 265 pounds. I am close to 215 now. Being placed on a diabetic diet was mainly responsible for my weight loss, but I am extremely active with a job that requires a lot of physical work. I do a lot of walking and I can walk six miles an hour. Good diet is one thing, but activity is also needed to burn the fat that needs to come off.
I still eat my BBQ, but I eat it in limited amounts. Cutting back on portions is a must. I no longer eat potatoes, rice, and pasta. I am limited to 60 grams of carbohydrates per meal. For the last seven months, my lunch at work has been a can of Light Progresso Soup, four peanut butter and cheese crackers, a five ounce serving of non-fat yogurt and a diet soda. When I was diagnosed with diabetes, I was told to quit smoking and I did that too. In order to quit smoking, I completely gave up beer for a month. I knew if I popped open a can of beer, I was automatically light up a smoke.
Now, I have a few beers at night, but I don't drink every night. The main thing I have found during my weight loss is this. Do not allow yourself to get extremely hungry. When you do wait too long to eat, you tend to overeat way too much. It is easier to eat in moderation if you are not extremely hungry.
The main thing to remember is that the weight you are trying to lose did not come on overnight. Therefore it will not come off overnight either.
