Tuesday, July 30 August 2011...Note to diary..I just returned from seeing Dr. Fergus, the NY
Cardiologist visiting Montserrat and she told me that I am having
so many health issues because I am over weight. She told me that
if I changed my eating habits, the weight loss would follow. She told me to start taking out "Me time" to concentrate on the task ahead, my goal of loosing at least 75 pounds.
Dr. Fergus gave me so many reasons to do it, but I know in my heart, I need to do it for me!!!!
/">............About one year later . . . . .
Dear Diary... I saw Dr. Fergus today and I was so excited to show her the new, great, beautiful and improved me!!! So far I have dropped over 40 pounds of weight...........
How many of us have been told this and actually listened? Delmaude Ryan is living proof!! After nearly a year, Delmaude is a different person. She is confident and she is full of self esteem. Delmaude has a few rules to live by. She didn't want to go on a "diet", she wanted to modify her life style. The old Delmaude would leave the house in the morning and usually eat nothing for breakfast. Sometimes she would make up for it at lunch, and sometimes she would just gorge herself at dinner.
In her discussion with Dr.Fergus, Dr. Fergus touched on diet and exercise. She also explained which foods were the ones to stay away from, so Delmaude took it in her own hands. At 5:30 AM. each morning she starts off with a 90 minute walk, followed with a good breakfast, lunch and dinner. She does little or no snacking during the day and she stopped eating three house before bed. After a while, her 90 minute walk only took 60 minutes. Her clothes were falling off her.
Delmaude has a wonderful outlook. There are monments during the day where she will call her "me"time. This seems to help her refocus on the next deeds on hand. She also steps away from her desk at lunch time and eats her lunch somewhere else. She found that she was "inhaling" the food and not enjoing it, so now she sits outside by the office buildings and relaxes.
When asked for the trick to loosing that much weight that quickly, Delmaude said "you just open your eyes one day and say "I am going to do it and I am doing it for me!!!
Delmaude just had her year celebration in a skinnier body and she is loving life. She is truly inspiration to all.
