  • Calories: Yes Tracking: Yes Exercise: 20 minutes walking in the park with my son I was sick late morning. At least I got some exercise in before that happened. The rest of the day was a struggle, but I made it.
  • Most restaurants have their menus and/or nutrition information available online. When going out for a meal with friends I look up my options ahead of time and figure out how the different choice will factor into my goals for the day. Some days I'm able to eat more, some days not. If I'm know I'm going to have a glass of…
  • Calories: Yes Tracking: Yes Exercise: 35 minutes walking hills Even managed to save a few calories to eat a bit of chocolate.
  • Calories: Yes Tracking: Yes Exercise: 30 minutes walking hills I had a really bad headache when I left work and I wasn't feeling good. I came home, took some medicine, rested, and ate dinner. I felt better after that so I went for a walk. I didn't want to use up a pass day so early in the month. It is definitely going to…
  • Calories: Yes Tracked: Yes Exercise: 34 minutes of walk/jog intervals I had an event with friends after work so I had to wait until 8:15 to get started on my exercise, bit I did it.
  • On my mind today: Don't try to tell me: What my goals are What my goals should be What my weight loss journey should look like YOUR idea of success What I should focus on Etc., etc.
  • Most of the vegetables restricted on the low-Fodmap diet are off limits to me. I have tried introducing a few and had bad reactions. I just stick to the diet to avoid inflammation.
  • Yum! That looks delish
  • Yes, I have had the same issues. I started with an elimination diet for two months and then tried reintroducing various foods. The first time I ate gluten after that my belly also swelled up to look like I was pregnant. I don't need that. I also can't have mushrooms and some other fruits and vegetables. I thought this week…
  • I have this problem too. I did mostly clean eating while losing my weight. I just finished a weight loss challenge amongst friends on 09/18/20. In the week since then I've been more relaxed with my eating and drinking. I've noticed that I have felt more hungry then usual. I need to get back to what I was doing prior to…
  • I have hypothyroidism and right now I take 150 mg levothyroxine, daily. I've lost 20lbs. in 5 months this year. I was able to do this by cutting inflammatory foods out of my diet, increasing my activity levels, and creating a calorie deficit of 750-900 calories daily.
  • The ugly: I've been consuming foods this week that are not on my self-prescribed elimination diet and paying for it dearly. It started with gastro-intestinal difficulties and ended with me being unable to stay alert and almost falling asleep in an online Zoom training this morning (so embarrassing!). The "treats" just…
  • I did a Labor Day challenge and it really gave me the focus I needed to stay on track. I felt like I needed another similar challenge to get back into the swing of things. History: I lost a bunch of weight post pregnancies, 55 lbs. I stayed active and kept it off until I was 39 and began having health issues that my DO…
  • I've been trying to lose weight for 6 years now only to watch it rise. My tip: don't eat anything that inflames your intestines. Inflamed intestines do not take in nutrition as best as they should and this leads to your body trying to function while stressed. You may feel more tired and run down, plus your cortisol levels…
  • I recently cut back on my daily calorie intake by switching to macros based tracking and meal plans doing 30/40/30. 30% carbs, 40% fats, 30% protein. This has worked well for me because with the reduced carbs it's easier to be low cal for the day and the higher fats help to keep me full and satiated. I haven't had…
  • I have had the same happen to me over the past few years. I would lose about 10 pounds, then stall out for weeks making no progress or fighting to maintain it, then start gaining it back, plus sometimes more. This year I did an elimination diet to figure out what was causing irritation or distress to my intestines. Then I…
  • Just some thoughts: Regarding CBD oil: it isn't always relaxing as many people claim. Many people take CBD for anxiety, which can amp someone up when there's too much anxiety, increasing one's energy. For them CBD oil would bring them down reducing the extra energy. For me anxiety does the opposite. Too much anxiety and I…

  • I've been on MFP for a while and have seen many people post the same problem you report. Of those that were successful they reported that they actually started eating a little bit MORE each day and then saw their weight drop again. Your body may be too accustomed to the deficit you have created. Try adding back in 200…
  • What no one will tell you: Everyone here, and I mean EVERYONE, thinks they have the answers and secret to success. I learned the hard way that the only thing that will work for me is the diet and plan that were meant for me. It will take some experimentation with yourself to figure out what works for you. That's the only…
  • Something in my reply didn't get spelled correctly and I have no idea what I was trying to write based on what was produced! I think my overall message is clear.
  • I have been both dairy free and gluten free at the same time but didn't find out what was causing kw tibbooat and have inflammation in my intestines until I did low-Fodmap for a couple months. There might be other things that are causing your intestinal irritations. Plus it takes a full 6-8 weeks for your intestines to…
  • I remember doing similar things as a child, maybe not that low, but similar. No child should be dieting unless the parents have been advised by a physician
  • Things I did in the past that made me "start off wrong": Thinking I had to do everything all at once. There are several habits that I have developed since I started in April. I have gradually added those habits as I went along, building one on another over time. Many times in the past I thought I had to start out strong…

  • I do low-Fodmap. It's not as hard as you would think. It takes some getting used to, but it will help you.
