  • I have lost 19 lbs since Jan 23 eating 1150-1200 calories and I got my diet info of what to eat from a dietitian. the only thing I have changed is eating only whole grain products; snacks, bread. I eat lots of veggies and fruit and chicken. I have an under active thyroid so losing weight is very hard for me. I am currently…
  • I eat between 1150 and 1200. What I have found to really help me is eating only Whole Grain bread, tortilla shells or even snacks. I have an underactive thyroid. I have a foot injury so I am not really able to exercise. I have lost 18 lbs since Jan 23/16 with no exercising. feel free to add me as a friend
  • Hi I have just been recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I have been doing not to bad eating. I was told by the pharmacist to eat breads that are whole grain. I also found that I have to log my food separately but for the most part, the brands I have been using are in the database. What I do find is that there are days…
  • Winnipeg, MB here. Love football. Not into much hockey. it's a balmy 5 degrees here - heat wave!!!!
  • Feel free to add me as a friend. Don't look at this journey as temporary. Look at it as a lifestyle change for the rest of your life - not a diet. Take baby steps and don't make too many changes at once. Also, don't be too hard on yourself if you mess up a day or two. just start the next day and continue on.
  • Hi. I know what it's like to not want to eat because you are afraid it will make you sick. I have either Crohns or Colitis but I have never been officially diagnosed. There are 7 cousins in my family with either of those diseases and one of them has a colostomy bag. I have basically been doing a hit and miss as to what I…
  • Sorry to hear about your parents. You have taken the first step and that is usually the hardest. Baby steps is good. Don't look at the amount of weight you want to lose, instead break it down into increments of 10 or even 5 lbs. I have to lose 100 lbs and I find breaking it down into 10 lbs and just concentrating on losing…
  • I have an under active thyroid and suffer from bones in my feet fracturing for no apparent reason that the drs can find. I also have issues with my back and recently found out that I have a thinning of a disc. I also have to lose 100 lbs and want to lose 50 of it by May. I would first try to lose the weight before going…
  • Yes, muscle weighs more than fat. Maybe take a break from going to the gym or cut back on your weight training. there is such a thing as exercising too much. Mix up your days; maybe a couple of days go over your allotted calories but not by much and then on some days stay under your allotted calories. this will help your…
  • Are you eating foods high in sugar, high in carbs or high in sodium which retains water.

  • Congratulations!!! You are on your way to a new self. Awesome that you have lost 15 lbs so are. The amount of weight you have to lose may seem daunting but if you break it down into smaller amounts, like 10 lbs then it won't seem like an impossible task to do. I have to lose 100 lbs and in order for me to not give up I am…
  • Hi. I will usually have an orange, apple or a bowl of cereal. the best thing to do is plan on incorporating a snack into your calories for the day. You don't want to deprive yourself because that is when you will go on a hog wild snacking binge. I will even have a couple pieces of chocolate squares depending on how many…
  • thanks for the info and yes it was from the Recent tab that I was wanting to delete. it was a food I chose in error.

  • count me in. need to lose 100 but will settle for 50 by May as that will be my 50th birthday
  • I found putting the snack food into little zip lock baggies in the acceptable portions allowed, helped me when I wanted a snack. This way i wouldn't eat the whole bag of whatever it was but still allowed me to have my fix of junk food. also, put cut up veggies and homemade dip in the fridge so that it is ready for you…
  • Because of the health problems that I have which make it harder for me to lose weight and losing 5 lbs in the first week keeps me motivated to continue doing the program. Seeing that it is possible to lose weight as I have not been successful on other programs. Also, I refuse to buy bigger clothes and I want to fit into my…

  • Hi. I have the same issue and it is soooooo frustrating to lose weight. Recently I have found that cutting out all sugar and rye bread has helped. Also, upping my fruit and veggies has also helped. Cutting out coffee and switching to tea is good too. I do allow myself a coffee once in a while but I have found it easier to…
