~9 Pounds Down!~
March 22, 2019 5:48am CST
Good morning everyone, I hope you're doing amazing! Things are great here. =) My Father loves us, has mercy on us and gives joy like no other. Amen! So...my husband started changing his diet a little over a week ago and he has already lost NINE pounds!! I cannot be more proud of him. =) He doesn't usually stick with things but he has been doing so great, he still surprises me even after 15 years look at that! Lol. More thoughts... I know my Father is always the same so if I'm not feeling loved and blessed-the problem is ME not Him. Most likely I'm not spending enough time with Him if I'm not acting like His daughter. If you need prayers please let me know...

@LovingMyBabies I understand. At the age of 67 or 68 I lost lots of weight and work very hard to keep it off. Most of the time I can look t food and not feel anything for it which is very good for me. I eat two meals a day and that is good for me. Contrats to him. I am so glad when I went into my favorite store for clothes and he always notices things and he said I am half of me. i never ever want to be fat again. I hated it and feel so much lighter now and good in clothes now. I keep some of my fat clothes so I can remind myself of where I was and where I am not.

Nine pounds is fantastic. It's true that men tend to lose quicker/easier than women. Sometimes, the smallest of changes can make a huge difference. I hope he can keep it. It's better to lose it slowly but, often, when first starting out, the weight can come off quite quickly at first. It's just a case of being able to maintain it. If he's made lifestyle changes as opposed to faddy dieting, that should make it easier. Cutting out/down sugar was a large part of what helped me but then there is so much hidden sugar where you wouldn't expect it.

@pumpkinjam Yes, he lost 9 pounds rather quickly but he isn't dieting per se. He cut out sugar from his diet, cut out soda/coffee added water, and added fruit instead of junk food such as cookies/candy. =) He has very little of the carbs too-not so much pasta or bread anymore.

@LovingMyBabies That's a good way to do it. Cutting down carbs can help some people, especially to give a little extra boost on occasion. As I said, cutting out/down on sugar is good. I stopped putting sugar in my tea and reduced the amount/type of milk but I couldn't live without it completely!
