Talking Hi from Catherine

Hi Everyone,

How are you? My name is Catherine and I have lost 39 lbs. since last November. I am on a diet similar to the diabetic diet. I go to a doctor and dietitian once a month to get weighed and see how I am doing. I only lost 3 lbs. the last time, but I have lost 5 lbs. since. I have been walking more during the nice weather. I am glad to be here.

Take care,

Catherine

Default Hi Shy Cammie

Hi Shy Cammie,

How are you? I lost the weight by telling my family doctor that I wanted to lose weight. She sent me to a weight loss clinic, run by a cardiologist and a dietitian. They gave me a diet to follow and I have to go and see them once a month. I have to pay the dietitian $10.00 but that's not much. My diet is like the diabetic diet, no fat or low-fat. I have to measure my food and just have so much. It was harder at first but now it is easy. Please ask me anything that you want about it.

Take care,

Catherine

Default Hi Maegdaeien

Thank you!!! That is so nice of you. I hope I spelled your name right. If I can lose weight, anyone can. It's not as hard as some people think.

Take care,

Catherine
