  • I am in maintenance as well and working on fitness/muscle tone goals.
  • Start weight: 127 lbs (Feb 2017) *hit goal weight if 110 in Nov 2017 Challenge goal weight: maintenance range of 108-113 lbs.

  • Also if you are strictly vegetarian not vegan, dairy and eggs are great sources of protein! Before I had to cut dairy, my favorites were Light & Fit greek yogurt (80 calories, 12g protein) and Cheese Heads light string cheese (50 calories, 7g protein).

  • @spdaphne Out of curiosity, what foods have you found so far that you react to?
  • Calorie counting. Simply being vegetarian and not eating sweets isn’t enough if you aren’t actually tracking your food. You can eat “healthy” and still eat way too much, and that will cause you to gain weight. Plug your stats into my fitness pal. And follow what it tells you. Measuring/weighing is especially helpful when…

  • The funny thing is - I haven’t really been doing any “ab exercises.” People weren’t lying when they said complex moves are best for core! ;)
  • Hello! I am Brianne. I am 23, married, live in Northeast Ohio, and I work in public relations with a speciality in social media marketing. I have been in maintenance/recomp since December 2017. My goal weight range is to stick between 108-113 lbs, with more of a focus on the fitness aspect. I have been running Fierce 5…
  • @anetkastefaniak The link @sardelsa posted is great. I am currently doing the Fierce 5 program and I have also done Strong Curves (tho I didn’t finish that one because it was when I got in my car accident).
  • Please ignore my currently bloated/distended tummy and instead focus on the muscle definition I’ve gained! (PS I didn’t get tanner - just the *kitten* lighting in my room. Still as pasty as ever.)
  • I only keep snacks/junk food in the house that my husband likes, but I don’t like. For example, jalapeño chips (yuck!) instead of salt & vinegar chips (which I would demolish).

  • Glad someone stepped up to take over the group!
  • I don’t weigh for the same reason as you, I didn’t want to become too obsessive with it. I do use measuring cups sometimes though, especially for calorie-dense foods like nut butters. If you aren’t going to measure/weigh, you may want to give yourself 100-200 calorie wiggle room as a margin of error. So if your MFP goal…
  • 6 lbs in 2 months is pretty aggressive and may not be the best plan. Just plug your stats into MFP and eat what it tells you. Calories in/calories out, there is no special secret. You just have to be consistent and it helps to weigh/measure your food. Also be wary of overestimating your exercise calories - lots of people…
  • Yes I get that all the time too. When I was losing, for some reason my husband loved to shout to anyone and everyone that “she’s only eating 1300 calories!” And then they would all think I was disordered. When in actuality, I’m petite so 1300 was well within a healthy range of calories for me, and still I was only losing…

  • No, I haven’t. I am only just beginning this process and have only been to one appointment with my gastroenterologist. She had really great reviews (actually my mom used to see her too) but I was pretty disappointed. I felt like she didn’t ask me nearly enough questions, just pushed sample packs of drugs on me. She agreed…

  • @gutsnglory6 Don’t forget that as your weight goes down, your caloric needs go down as well. So once you got the 130s, it probably won’t be exactly 1750 - you’ll have to recalculate what .5 would look like for your lower weight. :smile:

  • I think you look great! Your arms don’t look too big or masculine at all, just nicely toned. Why not start a lower body program like Strong Curves and focus on building your glutes & legs?

  • @RaeBeeBaby Good to know! Didn’t know that the nut yogurts have the same cultures.
