  • Weigh everything. I just saw a post on r/1200isplenty today where a person looked at the serving size of frozen french fries. The serving size said: 84 grams (about 27 pieces). They weighed out 83 grams and it was 15 pieces. That is 130 calories per serving, and they would get TWICE what they thought they would if they…

  • I need this challenge so much! I’ve been doing fabulous with my food but I’ve let video games rule my spare time. Time to get back to exercise. Nov 2: 45 min walk

  • With only 8 lbs to lose, you will not lose @ 1.5 lbs per week. That is way too aggressive. With less than 10 lbs to lose, you need to set your goals to .5 lbs per week. Lower your expectations on weight loss. If you had a hundred pounds to lose, you can easily lose 2 lbs a week. It is just going to be slower the closer you…
  • You are not a waste of time. You are progressing, becoming a better version of yourself. As the person above said, time is going to pass anyway. You could make progress in that time, or you could not change at all. The choice is yours!
  • How long have you been stalled? If you’re not losing and not gaining then you’re eating at maintenance calories. Are you using a food scale to weigh everything you eat? How do you calculate exercise calories? How much do you have to lose? Please don’t listen to people telling you you aren’t eating enough. That makes no…
  • Not one of us is perfect. We've all made mistakes of varying degrees in our lives. That's part of being human. It's ok to be human. If you've learned something about yourself along the way, that's great. If you did something in the past that you feel bad about, just ensure you don't repeat that mistake. You are so, so, so…
  • The absolute first thing you can do to start helping yourself is recognizing when you're tearing yourself down (thoughts like "I'm disgusted with myself") and stop that in its tracks. Replace that with something you would say to your BEST FRIEND had he or she come to you for help with the exact problem you're facing. You…

  • Training myself that it’s ok to leave food on the plate is a major goal of mine. In addition to that, I don’t drink my calories as much as possible because liquid isn’t filling. I have only so many calories to use to feel full, I feel like I’m wasting them on drinks. It’s sad because I have several bottles of delicious red…
  • So the OP doesn't want to participate in their own thread? Ok.
  • I highly recommend AnyList. You can use it with Alexa and Siri, and across all your devices. In addition, you can save internet recipes (if you have the paid version, at any rate), and pull your grocery list directly from the recipes. Sorry, I can't remember how much the annual subscription is off the top of my head, but…
  • When are you weighing yourself, and under what circumstances? How much do you have to lose? How tall are you?
  • Long Term Goals: * Get into a healthy BMI (this would be around 140 lbs) * Reach ultimate goal weight of 125 lbs (the middle of the healthy BMI range) * Get blood sugars down so that I'm no longer in the diabetic range (diagnosed as prediabetic Aug 16, 2019) * Buy a bike * Start riding a real bike out in the real world *…
  • I have no problem losing weight. I've done it twice before, losing about 100 lbs each time, only to put it back on because I let stress get to me and used food as a soother. When I'm committed to losing weight, I am pretty compulsive about sticking with it (the old "all or nothing" mindset). What's different this time is…

  • Just take it one day at a time. Be very kind to yourself. Most of us have been our worst enemies. Time to be your own best friend and cheerleader. Celebrate all progress no matter how small. Move on quickly from slip ups.
  • I have arthritis in my spine. I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in my 30’s, and now at 50, I live in pain daily. It affects me with pain that radiates to my hips, my feet, and I even get headaches and tingling in my arms and face. The only thing that’s helped so far is cortisone shots in my back. I try not to…
  • Fat loss is 90% about calories in vs calories out. You absolutely cannot outrun a bad diet. Rather than look at exercise like a chore, find something you like to do that just gets you moving. Exercise for overall health and enjoyment, not weight loss. Just try to take one day at a time. But do it today. The “I’ll start…
  • I’m so glad you got a scale!
  • All your fur babies are adorable! Here’s my Oz. He’s an 8.5 year old Yorkie boy.
  • I would personally go for a dry red wine or a vodka with a splash of cranberry juice and soda water. I love those without vodka for a refreshing drink that’s fizzy and low calorie.
  • Have you tried doing something that kind of transports you and distracts you? I’m thinking: reading an engrossing book or listening to a motivational podcast. Or funny podcasts like My Dad Wrote a Porno (the books are so bad, so the reading is hilarious). Or something like writing in a journal or learning a new language.…
  • FYI starvation mode is a myth. The reason you don’t want to eat less than 1000-1200 calories a day is because your body and especially your organs need a certain amount of energy to keep working. If you overly restrict your calories it can really cause harm to your body. There was recently a post on MFP from a 20-something…
