My ongoing weight loss journey through deep breathing!

Losing weight by breathing


Yes, I’m continuing my journey using deep breathing for weight loss.  I’m still at 20 pounds lost.  However, I’m only doing one deep breathing exercise per day (a set of six).  And I’m keeping this weight off.  This is so exciting for me.  I’ve never been able to lose weight and keep it off this long.  And all this with just one set of deep breathing exercises.

 

Researching

I’m continuing my reading and researching how to lose weight by breathing deep and keep finding new articles to read.  This has encouraged me and reaffirmed to me that deep breathing will definitely work for me.

Some of my online finds are as follows:

Amazed

It truly amazes me that I can lose weight doing these deep breathing exercises.  Since I am handicapped and use a wheelchair almost all day, I have been searching for some ways I can lose weight sitting here in this chair.  I found out about this deep breathing pretty much by accident while surfing the web.  It caught my attention and I began to read and research the possibility that this might work for me.  Then I decided to purchase the book by Greer Childers (in the list above).  When I got that and began reading it and seeing the different exercise she teaches along with the breathing techniques, I decided I would try at least the first exercise that I can do sitting in my wheelchair.  I was so surprised to find out that it worked for me.

Actually, the breathing technique isn’t as easy as it seems.  It is work and I’m tired after I do a few of them.  I’m finding that doing them twice a day or more truly helps me to lose weight.  I’ve already put myself on a more healthy diet through the Whole30 plan and found that works for me too.  Now I have a successful exercise plan to go with it.

  1. For so many years I have never heard of this method for weight loss. It is pretty interesting but still I can’t believe that this is possible. I must try it for myself and I will for sure come back to tell the results. My question is how much can be lost if this is practiced for a month?

    1. Daniel, I was shocked myself when I found I lost weight doing this.  I’m not sure how much weight can be lost if you do this faithfully.  I’m going to be trying it again myself and may try to do this every day for a couple of weeks and see what happens.  Let me know if you try it and your results.  Thanks for reading my post and your comment. – Shirley

  2. As a diabetic who is over weight I am always looking for more ways to lose weight as opposed to just the traditional diet.  This seems very interesting.  I also signed up to your newsletter and hope to get a lot of info out of there.  Im looking forward to the education I can achieve through what you are going to send.  Thank you in advance for such much needed info.

    1. Dale, thanks for reading my post and your comment.  I admit I was very pleasantly surprised when this worked for me.  I’m in the middle of a 3 day challenge too myself right now – trying a 1 day fast, and 2 day keto eating plus doing deep breathing 2x a day.  I’m seeing if I can lose 5 pounds in 3 days.  Friend me on Facebook if you want to follow my journey (Shirley Culp Dawson in Bella Vista, AR).  Thanks again. – Shirley

  3. What an interesting concept. I had no idea of this weight loss concept. And congrats on your success with this technique! Losing 20 pounds just through breathing is a great accomplishment. 

    As with anything, a general search for “breathing exercises” can be overwhelming with results. Out of the list you have provided, I’m curious which breathing exercises work for you?  

    Thanks for guidance and info!

    1. Kim, thanks for reading my post and your comment.  I’m only doing the first breathing exercise shown on the Youtube videos and in Greer Childers Book “Be a Loser”.  I’m in a wheelchair and its about the only one I can really do well. I Admit I was very pleasantly surprised when this worked for me.  I’m in the middle of a 3 day challenge to myself right now – trying a 1 day fast, and 2 day keto eating plus doing deep breathing 2x a day.  I’m seeing if I can lose 5 pounds in 3 days.  Friend me on Facebook if you want to follow my journey (Shirley Culp Dawson in Bella Vista, AR).  Thanks again. – Shirley

  4. Well, I certainly didn’t think breathing could be utilized as a weight loss tool.  Kind of reminds me of posture, when you don’t think about just how you are sitting is affecting your health.  I bet almost everyone in America is not really breathing correctly and has no idea.  Thanks for pointing me down a different path.  This is definitely something I want to work on so I can start reaping the benefits.

    1. Brandon, thanks so much for reading my post and your comment.  Yes, its hard to believe that this works, but my research has found indications that it really does work (check out those links).  I am challenging myself right now to do the breathing exercises twice a day and I’ll see what happens.  Thanks again.  – Happy in my wheelchair – Shirley
