In 2004 I had a heart attack and ever since continued to gain weight. I went from 200 pounds to 244. I drank alcohol excessively, sat on the couch and watched TV and didn't pay any attention to what I ate.
Now, I walk as much as I can and try to get 10,000 steps a day, I do weight training at least twice a week, and if I drink alcohol I keep it down to less than two drinks. I drink green smoothies, and I don't eat processed foods of any kind. I keep my calorie intake below 1,600 a day. It's working! The weight is falling off, and I'm happier than I've been in years!
To everyone out there trying to lose weight, if you can't do anything else, walk. Just walk. Even if you have to walk laps on the inside of your house or apartment. WALK!
