  • My goals for July: 1. walk 10,000 steps 2. Swim 3 times a week 3. Drop the Diet Coke again
  • I have done some radio frequencies sculpting. I cant say 100% that that was the reason I now have a jaw line but for the low cost, I will do more. It is more heat than cool.
  • Thank you for all your comments.... They have really given me things to think about.... I like the idea of flexible dieting. Making good choices and staying in control. The hunger component is new for me since I added the increase in exercise. Hunger has been one of the things I have struggled with in the past-when I am…
  • I have used premier shakes on my way to 80 lbs of weigh loss Good luck
  • The latest medical studies have shown that logging, checking weight, and exercise are the most effective way to keep weight off. Good Luck
  • Talk to your doctor.....but please be aware that one of the things about the weight gain does is prepare your body for breastfeeding. I was healthy and the baby had good weight gain but I didn’t have enough goodies stored to produce enough milk. I attribute part of my issue to not storing enough to breastfeeding…
  • I have to admit I have been worried about extra skin. As a nurse, I have looked at pros and cons of surgery. Risk vs benefits. I am concerned about scaring.....recovery time, general anesthesia, and cost. I have lost 80 lbs. Loose skin is an issue but as stated and based on research-reading...time takes care of some of it.…

  • I have to say I agree with most of the posters...... I have found that if I am hungry before bed I increase my water intake. When I first started watching what I eat, I was hungry going to sleep. A spoon of peanut butter helped. I got to the point of not needing anything before bed. I sleep more soundly. The thing I have…

  • Thank you for.all your thoughts......it really gave me something to think about. One piece of info I didn’t give you (just forgot) was that I am 5’ and now am 180. Oh yeah, i am 53-that part I always forget. I still need to lose more but I’m am kinda afraid of burning out and getting back to the higher weights again. I…
  • My initial goal was 5 pounds less than I was when I got married 20 years ago. I’m in the middle 50 age range wise. I’ve lost 80 pounds over the last year. Although I’m happy with that number I’m shooting for another 20 over the next year. I like the way clothes fit me now even though I’m still carry more weight around my…
  • Your doctor should schedule you some appointments with the physical therapist. They can be a good source of information as to what you can and can’t do. Let them know your goals and what you want to avoid. Be frank and upfront with them. That will let them know that you’re motivated and they may invest more in your…

  • * I did low carb after my son was born. 15 years ago, at the time of lost 30 pounds. I’ve been back on low carb since June 2017. I’ve lost 75 pounds. So I think I can say it works for me. It’s almost a year, I have 5 pounds to my goal. I see this as an eating plan that I can maintain. I have a cheap/reward day and that…
  • WoW!! Great job. Keep up the good (and hard) work!

  • I’m 5 foot tall.....and weighted 260. It took between 30-40 lbs before people noticed.... One thing that I noticed was that my clothes seemed to hide weight loss..... People really notice now that I have lost 75 lbs Good luck
  • Small things after losing 70 lbs— -I can do childs pose in yoga -I have more room in the movie theater -although I wear a smaller size bra-I still need wide straps to hold up my boobs....I want a pull up bra not a push up one... -my hair doesn’t seem as gray -a sad truth...the clothes that I use to wear, have to go because…
  • I am a low carber!!!
  • River Goddess- I have kinda hit the same road block.... I have been floundering for the last couple of weeks with no downward trend for Feb or so far in March. My measurements do show some downward movement. That is the only thing that has kept me slightly positive. I may have figured out the cause-diet coke. I am going to…
  • So....my recent experience with AS..... I have been losing weight for the last 8 months....70 lbs so far I am doing slow carb so usually I am losing weight after a high weight on Sunday.... The last 3 weeks, I have not had my usual success. I had a day when my weight jumped 5 lbs overnite. In the middle of the week.....I…
  • I lost my dog food hip!! I buy my dog food in 12.5 lb bags once a month. Today I picked up dog food. I put it on my hip to carry it to the car.....today I rested the bag on my hip and it fell down..... I no longer have a hip shelf! Victory 10 Inches off my hips make a difference

  • So I will add my 2 cents-- 1. You have done an amazing job. 2. I believe slow is best. 3. My boss (a doctor) just did some education that shows the keys to success include a. Logging your food intake b. weighing frequently c. measuring body areas-a minimum of 4 areas-arms, waist, hips, thighs These things have helped me…
  • My 1st week of the year was great!!! I finally made it under 200! I have stayed on the plan for 7 months...... I got all my laundry done today. I cleaned the kitchen after dinner... I ran tons of errands. I drank my water today. I stayed on plan food-wise. I need to work on exercising more.... I did walk but that isn’t…
  • So.... Kinda dancing on the inside... Am at the lowest wt I have been at in years....and 2lbs from 60 lbs of weigh loss.... I restarted the plan on the first and have stuck with it.....
  • For me the goals are basic: Keep doing what I have been doing. That has helped me lose 55 lbs in the last 6 months..... I have spent the last 2 weeks with in laws....all the family stress and not being able to do my low carb thing.....it didn’t help that I was out of the country....but tomorrow I will be home. So.... 1.…
  • Well....I am traveling....my weigh was up 4.... but now only up 2... Having to work hard...mother in law served Mac n cheese...bread....milk and cherries....I am on slow carb so every thing was not on my plan.....protein shakes are my lifeline
  • Hello~ I am excited to be here because I have lost 53lbs since June. I have a goal of losing 7 more before the New Year but things are kinda tough as I am heading to the in-laws for the rest of the year...... I have a bigger goal of 25 more lbs before I transition to maintenance. I havent really hit a plateau but I am…
  • That is a question many of us face...... I think it also depends on how much you have to lose and if you have stalled..... I didn’t start feeling too full to eat til about 5 months (November) on my plan. I lost 10 lbs a month... The last month, I lost 6 lbs but lost the same inches as before...... My happy medium was…
