I’m going to be honest with you all.
I got the flu, then pneumonia, then the pneumonia spread to my other lung. (Please don’t send me medical advice. I’m a doctor myself, and I see a very good one).
I lost quite a bit of weight and became really deconditioned – I couldn’t go up a flight of stairs without becoming out of breath! I had to rest and let myself fully heal. I had to take the time to gain some weight back and to get my stamina up. Now that I have the okay from my doctor, I’m getting back in the gym.
This feels like I’m starting over.
I want to be real about this process. It’s going to be tough and I know I’m going to be frustrated that I can’t just suddenly squat a plate again, but I need to be realistic.
I know there are a lot of people starting for the first time or starting over this time of year, so I want to share this journey with you.
So here’s to starting over! Let’s do it together. I know it’s going to be worth it.
Hi, firstly I'm a big fan of your posts. Well I was wondering how possible it is to lose weight without the gym. Let's say 60 pounds. And estimatedly how long?
Thank you so much!
Do you mean without a gym membership or without working out?
If you mean without a gym, there are PLENTY of workouts you can do in your own home without equipment, so that might be something you want to look into.
You can definitely lose weight without working out, but it may be slower, so make sure you’re patient. It really depends on how much you weigh to begin with. 60 lbs is quite a bit of weight and will likely take awhile. Take it 10-20 lbs at a time.
To start with, I’d say to eat normally for a week or two, but count your calories. This way, you have a baseline for your diet and you know how much you’re eating to begin with.
Then, you need to figure out how much you should be eating for your current weight and activity level. You can find these daily intake calculators online. Be careful that you are still taking in enough calories. Do NOT starve yourself!
Have a plan. Try to make better, healthier choices. Increase your protein, fruits, and veggies. Cut down on the junk food. Be patient and love yourself.
