  • To lose wieght and keep it off requires commitment to a new, healthy lifestyle. It is not about deprivation. I wish I had realized that years ago. It is about making small sustainable changes which over time will help you lose weight. I have been on many diets yet here I am. Now I am making lifestyle changes- I started…
  • I recently talked with my health care provider abour a realistic goal for me. We decided I will lose for another 20 pounds and see how I feel. That will still leave me in the overweight range of BMI but she feels it will be a good weight for me. She told me not to get overly concerned with BMI. My plan is to get to that…
  • You have lost 3 pounds in 4 weeks. That is something to be proud of. I have given up so many times in the past because I wasnt seeing the results I wanted as fast as I wanted. Oh how I wish I had stuck with it. Yes it is slow, but it will be so worth it in the end. Good luck!
  • It varies for each individual I think. I don't eat my exercise calories back. Years ago I found that doesn't work for me. What I am trying now is to get some extra exercise if I know I am going to be indulging in somethng special. For me exercise is to help keep myself healthy. I do track it as I am required to for a…
  • I lost 60 pounds during that time a few years ago. I put a lot of it back on but that was due to my choices and behvior rather than peri menopause or menopause. I am losing weight now again due to my choices and behavior. I am not saying it is always easy, but weight loss has never been easy for me (and probably most of…
  • I think that you are doing a great job. You seem to be losing at a steady rate, you are being followed by a doctor. I am losing weight slowly because I am not willing to "diet." I have dieted and lost weight many times but because for me "diet" always means an end and a return to old habits I have given up dieting. Instead…
  • Thank you for sharing! Very impressive.
  • I am so glad to see this post. I thought I was the only one this happened to. I have lost 30+ pounds and I'm trying on some of my old clothes as well as buying some new pants. I tried on a size 18 capris that I couldnt wear last year- they just fit now. I've also bought size 14 pants recently. My current size range seems…
  • Gret job! You look fantastic!
  • I totally understaand. I have lost weight during the past year but ONLY because the day we went into lockdown I found out I was predaibetic. After promptly going home from the doctor and gaining a few more pounds I realized COVID wasn't going anywhere quickly and I needed to make a decision about my health. However in the…
  • The link has some amazing information and resources. It was what I needed for my waning motivation. Thank you!
  • Ayds Grapefruit Diet Limiting myself to tuna, fruit, vegetables and cottage cheese for a summer. (Over 40 years later I still have a hard time eating canned tuna) Ice Cream Diet Cabbage Soup Diet Slimfast I was successful on Weight Watchers. Many or those listed above I tried multiple times.
  • I saw my APRN yesterday. She was thrilled with the progress I've made. My labs and blood pressure were good. My fasting gluclose was higher than I would like but at this point she is not concerned. She feels I am well on my way to preventing diabetes. I told her I would like to lose another 20-25 pounds and see how I feel…
  • I put on a video and make myself do 15 min. I figure I can do anything for 15 min. even if I don't want to. I rarely stop after just 15 min. I try to exercise 5 days a week, I try to save the 2 days for when my days are jam packed and it is hard to fit another thing in.
  • I drink herbal teas with strong flavors- I actually need to get back to doing that. It helps to fill me up and I have the taste iof it as though I had eaten something.
  • Yes, I am losing weight and I eat whatever I want. I do however log everything I eat and make it fit within a calorie range. So for example I am having takeout tonight. It is not going to be as healthy as most of my meals but I have been wanting it for ages. I am going to eat lightly the rest of the day and if I have time…
  • I love your attitude and I know you can do this. Like you I don't like to walk outside if it is too cold or too hot LOL. I do a lot of Youtube videos including Leslie Sansone, Phala B., Renew Active and Silver Sneakers. Depending on my mood and energy level I can find workouts that go from 10 min. to 45 min. Rarely do I…
  • My motivator is my health. I was diagnosed with pre diabetes a year ago. I have lost 31 pounds and work out nearly every day. I see my doctor in a couple of weeks and I am anxious to hear my numbers now. If nothing else I feel much better, I am not in pain like I used to be. I believe the reduction in pain is at least in…
  • I am 62. I have been overweight or obese all of my adult life. I have dieted literally hundreds of times. About 10 or 11 years ago I lost quite a bit of weight and that brought me into the overweight category. I kept it off for a few years but I slowly put 40 pounds back on. I have been making life style changes since last…
  • Bought new clothes today- 14 pants and large tops. down from XXL tops and tight 18 pants! Still have a ways to go but I am thrilled.
  • You deserve to be the woman who loves to laugh, loves to smile, and enjoys being active. I know you can find her again and you can lose weight. Don't try to tackle everything at once, make small changes- over time, and it will take time, they will make a difference. If you get fast food often could you make those meals at…
  • When I am having a tough time I think about my "why" and I think about whether going off track is worth it.
  • Welcome, I am glad you are here. @springlering62 gave you some great advice. The first being take a deep breath. You can and will regain control. I would agree, look at what is going on with your overall health. What I am writing comes from my experiences. Don't make a lot of changes at once but choose one or two things…
  • I agree, make smaill and sustainable changes. I have gradually lost 30 pounds with at least another 20 to go. I barely lost any weight in the beginning because the changes I was making were small, but I now log everything, and workout a minimum of 150 min. a week. I know I could lose weight much faster but this is not a…
  • I am able to do a 15 min. gentle jog- a few months ago I was struggling to complete 30 min. walking videos, I needed a break after 15 min.
  • I love watching your progress. You are an inspiration to me. Thank you for continuing to share.
  • Thanks for sharing! You look great and it is great that you have maintained for 10 years.
  • What a great story. Thank you for sharing it. You look amazing.
  • Awesome job! Your story is inspiring as I am losing weight for the same reason. Congratulations.
  • In March I was diagnosed with prediabetes. I started making small changes. My weight barely moved in the beginning but I gradually changed to a pretty healthy way of eating. I move at least 150 min. a week. I track everything I eat. I am working with a nutritionist as part of a group to prevent diabetes. I have lost about…
