Happy doctor

I hit 244.5. I went to see my doctor today and was beginning my tirade about how I am exercising, counting calories and making healthier choices and how it seems like I am going nowhere. The doctor stopped me and said " But I was going to ask you how you lost the weight."
It's slow. I hit plateaus. But steadily, I am losing weight. The doc explained to me that the plateaus are normal as my body shifts its mass to making muscle when we exercise. It sometimes spikes up. Patience and persistence is required.

Onward.

If you shift your primary focus to making healthy choices and allow weight loss to be a side effect of that, then whether you lose weight or not, you will be healthier - which, lets face it, is what it is ultimately about.

If you eat healthily and up your activity levels, the weight will come off naturally.
