Where does fat go when we lose weight?

Mar 28, 2018 - 5 comments

Some of us are involved in the weight loss challenge, trying to lose a pound a week.  That doesn't sound like such a hard thing to do, but for some of us, it's really a challenge.  

We've had discussions about what we eat, much of it centering around the amount of sugar we eat.  We all know that sugar is bad for us and we shouldn't be eating/drinking it, right?  And for most of us, it does make a difference in our weight when we eat more/less sugar... sure it does.

Look at the title of my journal though... had you ever really thought about what happens to the fat you lose?  I hadn't given it that much thought. I, pretty much, thought it dissolved and went down the toilet...

According to the following article some of it does, but not the way we might think it does.  Who would think we actually exhale or sweat out our fat?

I've read that what we eat is 80% of weight loss, but that never seems to work for me, no matter how strictly I stick to an eating plan; I have to have that exercise.  If the article is correct, I guess there's a good reason for that.

Pretty mind boggling isn't it?  

I seem to breathe slowly.  When I go to the doctor and they tell me to "take a deep breath" (what other kind is there?), they're telling me to take the second breath when I'm only half done with the first one.  I need to speed it up some, I think.  ☺☺☺

Hey, don't forget to inhale, too...  :-)

I have told alot of people today about this!  Some have looked at me like i am nuts!

Deep breathing became very important to me about 10 yrs ago.  There was a man on my forum who told me to do this during some rough times.  Even today i do those just to revitalize myself.  When i am stressed i will go to a quiet room and just focus on my breathing.  Inhale the good, exhale the bad~

I haven't really talked to anyone to tell them, but I'm sure most would think I'd lost it, too.  :-)

Deep breathing has gotten me through a lot of rough spots, but deep breathing helps allow me to lower my blood pressure when I'm under a lot of stress, too.  It helps keep my doctors out a panic sometimes...lol   There's something to "inhale the good, exhale the bad" though.
