My Sister Lost a lot of Weight
bobby75703 posted:
I have watched my sister lose a lot of weight, and keep it off for the long run. She is 1970's skinny.

So I asked her what she eats, if she is following any commercial diet.

She responded she is not following any commercial diet. She said she eats mostly meat and vegetables. She strictly avoids bread and sugars.

That's pretty much it in a nutshell.
MiaPa1208 responded:
so how much did she lose? what was her starting weight and how long did it take? how old is she? her diet sems really good-protein and veggies, thats what im trying plus i add fruit/fruit smoothies and at least 35 min a day on elliptical. hope to lose those last 15 lbs by may......
bobby75703 replied to MiaPa1208's response:
She lost 40 lbs. Beginning weight was 160, now she is 120.
She is 61 years old and started this about 2 or 3 years ago.
Her weight loss was gradual. slow but sure.

At age 61 she has her teenage body back.
