  • I adjusted my meals for the week, using my 5 points from above and I lost a pound. I know this won't happen every week, but it's a happy start and should keep me going!
  • My heart goes out to Sue and her husband. I will keep you both in my thoughts & prayers ((hugs))
  • Welcome Sarah - I too am a newbie, and a have a major sweet tooth. I try to limit my sweets and enjoy in moderation, but we both know that sometimes that doesn't work well and I end up in a binge! My husband says I obsess about food too. We kinda have to, if we want to keep our weight in check. Katla49 - It was just a fun…
  • Katla49 - in 2016, we were at a Nonsuch Rendezvous, in Hamilton Ont. There were 20 boats from a 22ft up to the 36ft. Beautiful boats. This is some of us during a race!
  • Wowzers......I just skimmed all the posts. You are a very talkative group (Yay). I had joined a Myfitnesspal TOPS group about a month ago. They welcomed me, then I spent a couple weeks talking to myself! Thank you all for the warm welcome! I love the pictures. I love the friendships formed and the support given. I am from…
  • Welcome Cindy, we're glad you're here. I too am a late evening snacker and eating high carb snacks only makes you want more. Try having yogurt, low fat cheese stick or lower sugar fruit. Is is at all possible to remove the offending snacks from your home? High protein foods help you stay satisfied longer. I'll be 69 in…
  • Good morning from Ontario. I'm Cindy (age 59) and trying so hard to lose my last 20 pounds. I'm looking for an honest group of like minded people to help motivate and encourage me. I exercise, eat properly (most of the time) and generally take care of myself. I just have this nasty habit of snacking in the evenings. So…
  • Thanks for all your helpful tips. I really think I am ready for this. I have picked up some really good advice. 1) Portion Control (weigh & measure everything) 2) Log or Journal 3) Exercise - get out there and move! 4) Moderation - enjoy my favorite foods.....all in moderation 5) Weigh myself every morning (Happy Scale) I…
  • I am slowly learning to use my willpower for good. I usually use poor willpower as an excuse....as in "I don't have any willpower therefore I can't control myself". I'm loving the Happy Scale app, and I ask myself "would you rather have that cookie, or see a dip in the scale". So far the dip in the scale has won for the…
  • I have been on a "Diet" most of my Adult life. I have tried them all. Lose some, gain more back. Yo-yo Dieting. I am currently a member of TOPS and am now trying to lose the last 20. I am a grazer. I snack constantly all day long. I eat a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner.....but then I snack between. Cheese & Cherry…
  • Thanks Ruth. Portion Control and tracking what you eat. Common sense really. I've been trying to lose the same 10-15 pounds for about 4 years now (with very little success). Maybe I will try it this way. I just downloaded the Happy Scale app. Thanks for recommending that. It looks easy enough and I do like to weigh myself…
  • Thanks for the input. All good points to consider. Danp : you mention a weight trending app to show progress. Is this available for an iphone and what is it called?
  • I won't be posting here anymore. I have created a new forum topic, called "Lose 5 lbs - in a month"
  • My starting weight is 193.0 My goal is to cut out the evening crap. I am a habitual snacker. And I don't snack healthy. I would like to lose 10 pounds by the end of 2018. Hopefully, by changing my bad habits into good habits, I can achieve my goal!
  • ROUND - 2 (Starting weight of 191 pounds on October 1) 10/11 = 192.6...Off to a good start. Slow & steady wins the race! 10/12 = 192.8...Started to binge last night, but I nipped it in the bud. Gotta really watch that. 10/13 = 192.0...Back on track (**again**) Will this roller coaster weight loss never end? 10/14 = 192.0…

  • ROUND - 1 (started Oct 1 @ 191 lbs) 10/1 = 193.2 Had a good weekend at the Marina. Obviously too good! Back on track today..... 10/2 = 193.0 Good start!

  • TOPS stands for Take Off Pounds Sensibly....an International organization, where like minded people meet to get weighed and talk about the ups & down of weight loss. Usually meetings are held in Churches or Community rooms..... https://tops.org/tops/TOPS/Default.aspx?WebsiteKey=a56ba4c3-a91c-4d57-b04a-b38d910feec5 across…
