    Hi everyone! For those who need to lose 100 pounds or more, what goal did you put in your settings? 1 pound a week? 2? Thanks!

    Hi! I started my journey on April 4, and have lost 13 lbs this month. I too was 270lbs and have a goal of 155. I don't want to carry around the extra 115lbs anymore, my body is saying enough. I would love to be part of your support team.

    I just decided to quit putting junk in my mouth and eat healthy....not too mention get up off my butt! I try to keep under 1700 cal/day...most days I can barely make 1200, yet am so full from the foods I do eat that I don't know if I can eat more!
  • I'm working on losing 100 too! My highest was 271 lb, I'm now down to 246 as of this morning :) Would love to provide some mutual support!

    I posted this the other day in the 100+ to lose with no surgery group ...but you asked for some tips so....

    Take it slow. Small goals. One day, one pound, one step at a time.
    You didn't put all the weight on overnite, it's not going to come off overnite.
    Get a good digital food scale, measuring cups/spoons. Weigh and measure everything.
    Take your measurements and pictures too (I did not and I wish I had)
    I pre plan/pre log my meals/snacks in advance. I put a nice amount of cals/carbs for late snacks so I can adjust thru out the day (in case I eat something unplanned, or have seconds or forget something I ate)
    Before eating out, check out website for nutritional stats...again, pre log the fast food/restaurant meal then plan your eating around it.
    Drink water, drink even more water.
    When you do exercise, go easy especially if you are a couch potato like I am (I actually did not do much till I lost a nice chunk of weight)
    Take the calorie burn you will see MFP or exercise machines with a grain of salt, especially if you plan to eat most of them back.
    Add some buds that have open diaries, I find some great meal ideas and recipes from my buds (& i hate to cook)
    Read labels, take your time in the grocery, compare products before adding to your cart.
    It's a big endeavor but if you get and keep your mindset where it needs to be, you can do it.

    I have 100 lbs to lose too. I started using MFP last summer when I was around 230 and have since gained another 30 lbs (I stopped using MFP somewhere in there). After a recent conversation with my doctor I'm more motivated than ever to lose my first 50 lbs and then continue on to lose another 50. I started using MFP again a couple weeks ago and I'm down 3 lbs (yay!) My diary is public and I'm looking to add friends to cheer each other on and share food ideas.

    How often do you eat? I try to eat 6 small meals a day keeping within my calorie goals.

    You and I are close to the same weight with the same goal! Would love to join you on your journey. I just started using this app along with a fitbit I received as a Birthday present. This is my 2nd week. Looking for inspiration, motivation and support!
