Yes, I agree doc. I peaked at 180lbs. Quickly approaching 200 I decided to take action. I walked every day progressively longer each week with the goals I set. This was January and by April I had lost 30lbs. As I am older I also cut out a lot of what I guess would be starches out of my diet. White flour; sugar; bread altogether; i.e. biscuits, loaf, pancakes, croutons; also cut out white rice and pasta. Its over 2 years later and It's a balancing act between 150lbs and 147lbs. I purchased a treadmill and continue to walk 15 minutes to an 1-1/2hr daily. I believe your body lets you know what weight is best for your frame. Any truth to that doc?
