Drinking My Morning Cup Of Coffee…

This morning while drinking that wonderful cup of coffee and doing some thinking. I started to wonder what I weighed. This has come about because Svet has been on a very successful weight loss program.

Svet has a blog that deals with what she is doing to lose weight and to tell you the truth I do not know what she writes on that blog. I stay away and let her alone… (Read Svet’s Blog: In Russian!) Her blog has become very successful and she is starting to have a lot of followers.

So I weighed myself and have found that I have lost a huge amount of weight myself. I had wrote an article a month ago about that I had lost 20 pounds. I was struggling hard with my weight ever since my heart attacks and I quit smoking coming to Russia. So how much have I lost?

When I started to alter the way I eat and alter my habits, I had reached a unbelievable 150 kilos. That equates into 330 pounds for you none metric people. As of today I touched the 130 Kilo mark on the scale. That is 286 pounds. I have lost 44 pounds and to this American that is a wonderful thing…

I have had real problems struggling against the medicines that I take because of heart issues. One pill I take, bloats me up and my feet swell, then I have to take another to stop my feet from swelling. Then I take a pill that slows my heart down and that makes it so that I have to pace myself and not push things to hard. (So On and So On) I officially take a total of 27 pills a day now and that is way down from what the American doctors had me taking…

When I had my first heart attack I weighed 250 pounds and went like no tomorrow. It has taken me years to change what was, to what has to be. It is not easy and when you realize that you can not eat those hot roast beef open faced sandwiches smothered in gravy any more, is when you will realize that you will be around the earth much longer.

I will not talk about how much weight Svet has lost because guys are just better off not talking about their wives weight. 🙂 But her blog tells what she has lost and I will venture to say that Svet has lost as much weight in proportion that I have.

So what is this miraculous weight lose program that Svet and I use. It is not a certified program. (those never work) It is not a diet fad or such. (Those never work) In fact it was extremely simple…

1. Gave up any and all desserts…
2. Stopped cooking with any oil…
3. Stopped all starches (such as potatoes, rice and noodles)…
4. Stopped all breaded foods (such as rolling meat in flour)…
5. Use real butter in place of margarine…
6. Low fat cottage cheese…
7. I also drink a liter a day of Russian Sour Milk (Kefir)
8. No pork or beef – just chicken and turkey

We do not control how much chicken or turkey we eat nor the fruit or vegetables that we eat. The only veggies that we stay away from are corn and peas due to high starch and such. That is it…

Oh and the most important part of loosing weight. Svet and I do it together…
