I just thought I’d give you an update on my continuing weight loss. As regular readers know I’ve been off work on medical leave for more than two years due to Crohn’s Disease.
Over the past two years I’ve managed to gain a few pounds due mainly to inactivity thanks to my abdominal pain. Last November we got a Lab puppy to keep me company and as a way to motivate me to get more active. Dogs need to get outside, even if you don’t feel like taking them out, right?
Well, between Midnight keeping me busy and now Spring gardening tasks etc I’ve noticed that I’ve started to lose some weight. I hadn’t gained a lot of weight, but enough that I wasn’t looking forward to summer shorts and skimpier clothes if you know what I mean!
So I’m happy to say that the weight seems to be dropping off without the help of a strict diet or dieting aids like Slimquick. I’ve just become more active.
Of course I do watch what I eat. I have to since I have Crohns as I have trouble digesting quite a few foods. However I do try to eat low fat foods, lean proteins and limit the sweets.
Have you been trying to lose weight? What have you done and have you been successful?
