Weight Lost 12!

Lets Dance.

2000 Calories.

August 14th, Friday. Day 13. I consumed 2000 Calories. I walked zero miles. No hours in the garden. The heat was very hot. It was dangerous to exercise outside. I read chapter three of Dr. Phil's book; "The Ultimate Weight Solution".

Chapter three is 7 pages long. It was titled "Are You Ready". The thrush of the chapter are twenty (20) questions. The questions really guage whether you are ready to go into a program to lose weight and maintain the new desired weight.

I received a comment that it would be helpful if I listed what I actually ate and the number of Calories each food provided. What I can provide are the following facts : one slice of bread provides 80 Calories, a teaspoon of margarine or butter is 35 Calories, a fried egg is about 105 Calories, a teaspoon of sugar is about 20 Calories, a cup of rice is about 225 Calories, a cup of pasta is about 225 calories. Sources of calorie information comes from the package information provided and from weight loss books and medical books.

Exercise can help you lose weight. Dancing is exercising.

I am going on a diet starting tomorrow, I have had a heart attack and I smoke a pack a day, I was wondering if it would be a good idea to walk 1 mile a day or if I should start with less? I would ask my Cardio guy but he charges too much.

Dear "A Texan" You really need the Cardiologist and a primary care physician (Internist or Family Pratice Physician). Only a physician who examines you can properly tell you how much you can exercise and what type of exercise is safe for you and recommend diets and good life style changes. You will do well. Thank you for your comment.
