  • I would ask what he eats now..and drinks? Too much pasta, bread and fruits and veggies could be too many carbs for him. I was "pre-diabetic" and then went "diabetic" last January (according to my Dr.) I was 308 pounds and am now 58 yrs young. I don't count carbs, or eat low carb. I eat lots of fruit and veggies, but very…
  • "I started drinking slim fast I was wondering if it helped anybody" You drinking slim fast , hasn't helped me at all.
  • You really have to make up your mind. That's as simple as it gets. It's also hard. Seriously, though, it is a decision. Don't make it anything more than that. YOU control YOU. If you want to quit..Quit..I smoked since I was 13-14 years old..quit once for about 4 years..12 hours in divorce court and I started again...I am…
  • I smoked and was overweight.. I quit smoking Sept 28th 2014..never worried about my weight, cuz I was morbidly obese and ignored it. I suppose I may have added some pounds.. I started the weight loss March 1st 2016. I haven't had a smoke since that day in 2014..Cold Turkey and I am 80 pounds down on the weight loss.
  • I found out I was diabetic last January. I changed my diet and exercise..my life really. Losing weight and getting healthier. I am on no meds. One of the things I did was cut out "pop" or "soda" BTW..what do you call it? Pop...Soda? Anyway..I do now have a diet coke from time to time. Used to hate diet pop..now, I find it…
  • When I started exercising , dieting, eating healthier and watching my calories... I found out a cup of coffee with a lil bit of cream ..jumps the calories up from about 2 calories per cup to 30-35 calories per cup. I drink a lot of coffee..and decided I was not going to invest my calories in cream in my coffee! I've been…
  • I started last March 1st at 57 on here..308 pounds..Tomorrow is my one year anniversary of making the decision to change my life (and following through) I am now 58 and I hope to be down 80 pounds tomorrow morning. I weighed in this morning at 228.2 My health is good 9I am diabetic according to my Dr but no meds..diet…
  • 1. What was your starting weight and height? I started March 1st 2016 at the age of 57. 5'10 1/2" tall and weighed 308 pounds. 2. What is your current weight/goal weight? I weighed in today @ 229.6 pounds. I was down to 224 before Thanksgiving, but decided to take one month off of exercise and logging accurately. I weighed…
  • I would say..in the "long run" it will be unhealthy. For a period of time, you can get away with a very low calorie diet. That time depends on each individual. It could be 2-3 months..it could be a bit longer.. At some point, your body will tell you, it needs more fuel. Being very obese, you can get away with a "too low"…
  • I would weigh in and say being overweight (obese) IMO, would be potentially more dangerous to your life expectancy than smoking. (Of course, there are several things which factor in..genetics, work, lifestyle, etc.) I was both..morbidly obese and a smoker. I quit the smokes Sept 28th 2014 Cold Turkey. March 1st 2016 I…
  • Red Wine anytime is good.. I believe it is roughly 150-175 calories per 6 oz glass.. enjoy!
  • I am 58 and started at 308 pounds..I watched my calories very carefully when I started. I put myself on a strict 1200-1300 calorie a day diet for a good 3 months. I also started exercising. I am not recommending that for your husband. I would say..is his 305 a "fat" 305 or is he a big, tall athletic type? I dropped weight…
  • I am 58 years young..I started on MFP March 2016..I weighed 308+ last Feb 28th. I am diabetic. Today, I am 75+ pounds less and I am no meds for diabetes. Diet controlled. I exercise daily and practice CICO..
  • I have diabetes and her Dr should be the one she asks about her diet first. I was diagnosed in Jan 2016. I had been "pre-diabetic" prior to that for probably some time. Last January, my Dr said he wanted to put me on Meds. I told him ..No..I would go home, get active and lose weight. I did that..I maintain a more active…
  • Anyone may add me..I started on here last year at the young age of 57..I have lost over 75 pounds since March 1st 2016.. It ain't easy but it's worth it... Here's a before and after
  • 58 here..started on March 1st 2016..Have lost 70+ pounds so far (lost 80+ but put a few back on during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year (damn you Turkey, Christmas Cookies and Beer!)
  • I weigh everyday. It's a good way to understand your body and how it works, plus how it fluctuates, depending on your diet and exercise. You can learn a lot from weighing daily. One thing you learn, is your weight will change daily..up..down..doesn't matter if you step on the scale and look , or you don't. My official…
  • I apologize and not meant to burst anyone's bubble..but I have not read anything good about Quest Bars. http://www.fooducate.com/app#!page=post&id=57A351AD-2EBA-77AC-49DE-8FBDAE463A22 Please feel free to enjoy them, eat them , whatever you like, I only post this as I looked into them , because my daughter said she loves…
  • Best wishes to you..I also was diagnosed with diabetes in Jan 2016 I am 58 and weighed 308+ My A1C tests had been 6.1 6.4 6.4 and then in Jan 2016 7.4 My Dr wanted to put me on meds..but I said I would go home and change my life.. Diet and exercise and today I am 70+ pound lighter..I eat better ( CICO & Healthier food…
  • I am diabetic..58 years old..I was diagnosed in Jan 2016..My Dr wanted to put me on Meds I weighed 308+ I said..I would go home and change my life..lose weight..eat healthier... I cut out almost all soda..(I'll have a diet coke once in awhile now) I've lost over 70 pounds as of today and I am not on any meds.. I eat pretty…
  • IMO..whatever works for you...Everything starts upstairs..and if the scale is affecting your mental aspect of weight loss, exercise etc..then do what works for you.. I weigh in daily..have been doing that for some time, simply to educate myself on how my body reacts to my exercise and diet choices.. Sometimes , I can…
  • 58 and I am fortunate to work from home..so I converted my drive time to exercise time..I get at least an hour a day in..but the diet is the most important aspect to weight loss..the exercise will help you stay healthier..
  • For me..counting calories has helped me greatly in understanding food portions and how to balance your meals. I started at over 300 pounds March of 2016..I dropped over 80 pounds. Over the Holidaze (Thanksgiving and Christmas) I took about a month off from counting calories (I loogged food..just enough to keep my account…
  • Pretzels Cereal Nuts (almonds, peanuts, cashews) Apples Certain Crackers strawberries
  • As others have said..a person's weight can fluctuate greatly from day to day. It's natural. Sometimes it is sodium..sometimes it isn't.. I have noticed up to a 4 pound gain on some days..and as much as a 2 pound loss on some days.. I weigh daily..it's good information to understand your body and how it reacts to your diet…
  • IF you weigh 330 pounds and are eating 1200 calories a day..you will drop weight like crazy in the first few months..especially if you're exercising as well. Something does not equate. You should drop perhaps 20 pounds in the first 30 days IF you are doing as you say and weigh what you say. As I said, something does not…
