It is time to diet

With my blood pressure on the rise, it has become apparent that it is time to get serious about losing weight. My pulmonologist is a champion for maintaining proper weight and has told me about a diet for losing weight.

Looks good, and full of good stuff

His diet: A protein shake for breakfast. A protein shake for lunch. A salad for supper. When he first told me, I thought that’s the diet from hell. Exercise? Yes, I’ve already started riding my bike each morning.

Sher is supporting me 100%. I know I’ll need that support as this will be a drastic change in lifestyle for me. Portions size is going to be a real challenge for me for those times when I have something other than salads.ย I’ll give updates on my progress every now and then.

  1. Here’s to your success, Maj! The struggle is real. I’m 220lbs, but have been battling high blood pressure for 5 years now. It’s a daily regimen of BP pills and it stinks but the alternate choice isn’t good. You can do it! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

  2. good luck and keep safe. For me, refined carbs are deadly. It sounds like you don’t get many of those with your diet. And i have heard people have even reverted diabetes with the right strict diet. So, you may be on to something. Keep your spirits up, too.

  3. As you know, Maj and Sher. Health is everything. That salad plate looks wonderful. It is almost dinner time around here. I look forward to reading your updates. I know you will do well.๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Good for you!
    Although hard in the beginning I applaud your efforts and it will be worth it in the end.
    This is a full proof way to get results I agree and pretty extreme but stay the course and then you can make modifications later….
    The exercise will help a lot.. Kudos to you!!!!


  5. Thatโ€™s what I call a yummy diet! Stay safe and healthy dear friends! โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŽผ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚


  6. Jon went on blood pressure meds a few years back. The side effects were not pleasant. A change in diet and increased exercise led to a 30-pound weight loss and no more pills. Wishing you similar success.
