  • @AnnPT77 Yes ma'am, a correction, the HAES movement did exist. They were just not quite as out there. The rise in social media, i think, was one of the reasons they are better known now. I definitely got more negative reaction (from my social circle) to my weight loss than I ever got to being fat/obese . . . at first,…
  • While I agree that it is great to be accepting of others and ones self. That said, if the HAES and Fat Acceptance community had existed when I first started losing weight, I might not have made the lifestyle switches that I did. I might have just decided, this is the way I am. I most likely would have ended up in a wheel…
  • Learn to trust the process and give it time. Often, tissue loss can be hidden by changes in retain body fluid and waste products. Good news, as far as I know, the law of thermodynamics still exist! Many of us didn't gain loads of weight overnight, so it won't come off overnight. Another piece of good news is, time dieting…
  • I second this. I would also suggest you "diet" on the maximal amount of calories you can to start. This way you can reduce them as you lose weight or adjust if you don't. Trust the process, be honest, and learn about proper lifestyle change. Best wishes.

  • Are you weighing and tracking your food accurately? Have you increased your fiber, salt, or fluid intake. Are your "hormones" at that "time"? Remember, weighloss is not linear. It can be up and down. I suggest getting a weight trending app and using it. Also, remember to weigh in at the same time, same scale, in the same…
  • yes sir, minus the time I was losing weight. I didn't really keep great records.
  • Enough said......
  • Not always the case, resistance training, and higher protein intakes, will help mitigate this in many people. Older folks might do better having a higher protein intake. Upwards of 1.6g/kg.
  • Yes Alec, a higher protein intake most likely does help attenuate lean mass loss, but lean mass loss does not explain the greater than predicted rmr drop after weight loss. Remember that the biggest loser contestants lost an average of 80% bf and only 20% lean mass. Very respectable numbers, but their RMR's still suffered…
  • Sounds like you have pretty much everything in order. Only three things I would add. 1. The difference in the prevention of disease from a 25 bmi to a 27, is not that great. We know that "most" of the health improvements come from the first 10% or so. That said, I see nothing wrong with being on the higher normal BMI. BMI…
  • Well, the physical part is one we know a bit about. There are certain qualities of food that make them more satiating than others. Now those properties might be "individual", but most seem to be applicable. The second is tricky as hell, because I think some the psychological plays hand in hand with the physical. I am a…
  • Well Alec, nothing wrong with having hamsters, in fact, I have damn ferrets! The problem for me is, I can't let the little fury *kitten* run free, or they begin to take over my life. The problem with even addressing the subject of AT for me is, there are multiple models, that have been supported by different studies.…
  • I guess its a biproduct of being miserable for years and a slightly neurotic personality that being that way made me. I used to worry about how many calories I got to eat in a day. I no longer look at it in this way. I look at it like, is this food going to fill me up and keep from being "overly" hungry? Yeah, a bit of a…
  • From what I have read Alec, it does not matter what kind of exercise one does. The adaptation is more of an adaption to a certain calorie burn. The body starts pulling energy being used in "non-essential" body processes. Maybe one of the reasons we see inflammation go down when someone becomes more active. We see evidence…
  • @Bella_Figura Ill do my best to get my thoughts out. I would say that we all tend to have a body fat "settling" range. One where our bodies will go towards, according to our lifestyle. Can we go above it, sure. Below it, sure, just not very comfortably. As far as AT, yes I think it exist, but after reading "burn", by…
  • Awww Alec.... making me blush and all. :*
  • Ma'am, you can call me anything you like, except late for dinner. Real name is Dalon. I am glad to be here as well. My...errrr... adventure has been a downhill, then an uphill battle. I would be happy to share anything I have learned. Just looking for that "sweet" spot, no pun untended. Yep Alec, I've been back with "real"…
  • Trending today at 205.1 height at 6'3". High 400+, low 180. Slight uptick this week, still down from my highest trending last year of 213.
  • I'm having Baked Salmon with Dijon and Dill with a roasted root salad, and broccoli. Simple and easy... just like me.... lol
  • Yes, I have to corroborate this idea. At .y leanest, my rhr was 49. Now, it's in mid to higher 50's. To answer your earlier questions, no rhr is pretty flat. Weight lifting is about the same. Weight has popped up some. Trending up 2 lbs in the last couple weeks. Total weight change for the year is only .8lbs though, so…
  • Current weight of today is 202.4. Trending is 204.4. Down this year from a high of 215 trending. I didnt change anything about diet. Not sure why the swing this year. Clothing seems to fit the same. @PAV8888 any thoughts?
  • You no longer have a "lose weight" "maintain weight" mindset... you have a "I watch what I eat and how I move and set myself in a trajectory that will help me approach my goals" mindset. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This I think is the key to permanent lifestyle change sir. Grumpy? OBNOXIOUS?!?!?! Really!?!?! Well.... I think that…
  • That would require her to give him personal information. Isn't that against terms of service? Or are you bullying?🤔
  • If you have time to read. I suggest "Burn". It's by the lead author of this study.
  • @brenn24179 Actually just came by this study today. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2211124721013097 Its interesting. It seems that in this analysis, the intake of a non restrictive HFD, led to an increase of body weight vs a non restrictive LFD. What was very interesting, is that the addition of…
  • I won't say food addiction isn't real, but will say certain foods have addictive like properties. I mean, most people won't eat 3lbs of steamed, plain, broccoli in a sitting, but many will cram a pint of (insert favorite ice cream here) in a sitting. Certain food properties do illicit greater dopamine responses than…
  • Don't lecture me about "front line" working. I have been on the front lines for one major outbreak and one surge. Yes, we get them here. Try being surrounded by 600 positive patients, with little to no PPE because the hospitals received first go when supplies were short. Having a nursing staff of usually 16 and being down…
  • I appreciate the offer of the "white flag" ma'am, but it is not needed.... I am unwavering in my support of my fellow workers. I agree with private businesses right to choose.....but..... in a market that is already depleted of workers, forcing someone to choose, might not be wise. Many of us work in niche parts of…
  • <===clears voice ughh...uh.... <===speaks very slowly I..... support......my....fellow.....healthcare.....workers......decisions.....of....self......determination,.....to.... vaccinate..... or.....not..... That's it. I'm not going to argue with you.......
