    losing weight

    If you want to or need to lose weight, eat only foods that don't taste good. That way, you will eat less.

    Google "BMI" or "Body Mass Index" and see what you are supposed to weigh.

    I am 5' 10" and my normal weight range is 130 to 174 pounds. At 205 I was transitioning from "overweight" to "obese".

    I now weigh 150 pounds, 2 pounds to the lite side of the exact middle.

    A downside to losing weight is a lot of loose, flabby skin. However, my heart likes it and my TW is faster than ever.

    People have told me to stop loosing weight. They say I am starting to look not so good. Oh well..........

    Well you can die young and have a good looking corpse, or be ugly and live forever. That extra skin will eventually shrink back to almost where it should be.
    Just get used to flapping in the wind until it does. I lost over 60 pounds last year and began to slowly gain back about fifteen of it where I have stabilized for about 6 months now.
    I no longer eat more than a few pounds of beef a year. Mostly I main course dead fish or chicken, or pork. Veggies are mostly boiled as are my eggs. Soft boiled that is.
    Sometimes for a major meal I do an omelette. For fruits I stay local like papaya, pineapple, banana, strawberries, and various farm raised exotic fruits like dragon fruit , star fruit, pomelos
    and stuff at the local farmers market under the banyan trees.

    Have always been close to a 'bag of bones' Seems many other variables come into play. Never smoked and rode my bicycle across the United States back in 1973. Now I get to deal with Emphysema, go figure. Certainly, the best plan is to move forward with some thought towards 'tomorrow' but don't hold your breath as there are no guarantees.

    Your emphysema is probably the result of breathing fresh air mixed with vehicle and industrial exhausts.

    Don't know Phelonius. The Dr. presented a couple of theories. My thought; should you drop from the womb, there ain't no guarantees.
    Take care my Friend.........

    I've lost 28 lbs in the last 12 weeks limiting my intake of carbs to 20 per day. Now 186. Wow just checked my BMI I'm still obese (30) if I grow one more inch I'll just be overweight. . I guess I'll keep my fat ass on the diet.
