How do I cut out all the junk so I can lose weight?

I don’t care what society and people say I wanna lose weight and be slender. My doctor got after me if we’re getting 5 pounds while I was trying to lose weight. She said that I really need to follow the meal plans and cut all all the junk food. She’s a very direct, “in your face” doctor. She is a very tough doctor and she does not play and she got in my face and was very direct with me! I was 251 but then lost weight and got to 243 and now I’m 248. I went to the doctor yesterday and she told me that I need take take it serious and the death of my mother is no excuse for not taking care of my body and my mother would not like if I got big. Yeah only my mother wasn’t in my life for 10 years. She left us when I was 7 in a half. My doctor said I should get down to like 185 or 180 and she says because of my large bone structure and I’m 6’ (I’m really 5’11 3/4) I should go no lower than 180. I corrected her saying that I’m 5’11 3/4” but she didn’t respond and put 6 foot anyway. My bones are so big that I can’t even touch my fingers when I wrap my fingers around my wrist. The next time I see my doctor either March or April she says she BETTER see progress and no lies.

[@4018,ExperienceDLT] i love soda. i drink at least one per day. if i cut that out, i would easily lose 5 lbs.
[@18045,akindheart] its hard to do its hard to cut unhealthy habits cause its the unhealthy stuff that taste the best but it really does help

Well it takes personal discipline you need to develop . And if you want to lose it in 6-8 months ( sooner if you are disciplined) ... keto works . There is a website [b][i]Dietdirect.com[/i][/b] . They have a bulk of the food and the counseling ( tell you what to eat and when ) and you get busy . Eventually they will want you to start walking too . They will visit with you each time you order your food , ask you your weight and BP and discuss any issues like plateaus or digestive issues . Ladies at my old office combine to lose an average of 40 pounds each. Some lost over 100 . They said the first 2,weeks were the toughest , after that it was much easier . Most lost 20 pounds per month . You can do this !
Check out something like Noom .. helps with psychology of overeating, tracking what you eat and guidance toward building better habits over time. My sister-in-law lost 50lb and still going strong 2 yrs later.
