A 60 year old patient of mine has been losing 2-3 pounds every two to three weeks by portion control and exercise. SHe keeps a written log of her calorie intake and her exercise. Once every two week we review her progress. SHe has lost 11 pounds in 6 weeks since july 29, 2015. SHe remarks that her clothes are looser and she can feel the weight loss by the ease in which she can get into her clothes.
Her committment to the program by documenting her intake and her exercise is one of the main reasons for her success.
