  • Fellow wino here! I replace with kombucha in a wine glass after I get home from work. Less calories.. not as good, but it's something to sip on and relax with!
  • Luckily you like bananas and bananas are great at disguising the flavours of other foods. I like this smoothie that has spinach in it because of the banana you don't taste it - it's just bright green. Use a scoop of your favourite vanilla protein powder, 2 cup of baby spinach, 1 banana, almond milk/milk, water and ice and…
  • I would make sure you are fueling your workouts! Maybe try eating something an hour before you workout. That helps me if I'm working out in the daytime. Make sure you are getting enough sleep too. That would make you tired if you aren't getting enough.
  • I'm 27 and have 5 fur babies!!! My uterus occasionally ovulates while holding babies but still not ready yet! haha
  • Heeey! I'm Sarah, 27 years old. I'm a 4th year vet student on my clinical rotations so my schedule depends on what week it is/what rotation I am on. I lost 15lbs by being more aware of what I was eating and finding my soul-mate workout program. I went to Dominican though in May and gained 5 pounds and my vacation extended…
  • Would LOVE to have more supportive friends! I try to comment daily and my food diary is open.
  • There's a huge difference in dieting and having a diet. Those successful in weight loss don't diet, they simply have a diet! Omit these words from your vocabulary: bad foods, cheat food, cheat meal, cheat day. It is giving too much power over food and then makes you feel naughty for having it! I call foods that aren't…
  • I've been steady with logging and working out since November! I'm also running, but just doing a half marathon in October! :)
  • Keep doing the exercises that you are doing at home - keep upping your resistance too! Diet is really important too. You can't exercise off a bad diet!
  • And THIS is what MFP is all about!! Congrats to both of you on reaching your goals!
  • Plain greek yogurt! Coffee.. I did that today because I am studying and it was really good! Chia seeds, avocado, hemp hearts, blueberries, strawberries, vanilla extract, almond extract, cinnamon!
  • Instead of pop (I'm Canadian), one can of carbonated water with a splash of 100% pineapple juice (not from concentrate) and then add in some raspberries, strawberries for fun.
  • I know a lot of people say, "moderation is key." But for me, I at first couldn't do moderation. Starting off, I couldn't have trigger foods in the house, I didn't have control, I couldn't stop, I just couldn't do 'moderation.' I wouldn't be able to just break off a square of chocolate.. nope, I needed the whole thing! And…
  • Hey! Hang in there, weight loss is definitely tricky sometimes, you just have to get past the obstacles to keep going. What are you currently doing for exercise? If you have been doing the same routine for awhile, then it might be time to switch it up! If you are doing a lot of cardio, incorporate strength training. What…
  • Working out definitely helps! Another way to avoid eating your feelings, that I love and is very productive, is making a big music list, blasting the music, and cleaning the house!
  • I'm not vegan but vegetarian for over 10 years. I love trying new recipes, including vegan! In fact, the best chocolate cupcakes I have ever had were vegan ones.
  • Definitely incorporate some strength training! It's a different kind of workout - I used to be turned off by it. I was a cardio queen! I started doing Chalean Extreme in November, finished the program in February and loved the results that came. I feel stronger, metabolism is probably the best it's been since my early…
  • I think once you reach your goal weight, stretch marks will be the last thing on your mind! I don't want to sound rude at all, but don't use the excuse of having stretch marks as a way to get out of losing weight/getting healthy! Don't worry about them! Distract people with the gun show, they won't be paying attention to…
  • Ovo-lacto vegetarian here for over 10 years. I recently have started cutting soy out of my diet -- did not realize the many adverse effects it has and since doing so have noticed my energy levels have improved! I'm looking for people that have go to recipes for alternative meat sources that are soy-free!
  • I took me awhile to come up with something-- I love all food in moderation! But cereal! If you actually measure out the appropriate serving size, it's so tiny! And it's usually loaded with sugar, then you have to add milk.. and it doesn't really keep you full long! I'm an oatmeal lover now.
  • Wow, this is a lot of information to take in! It sounds like this has been on your mind a lot. Good for you for getting it all out there. Firstly, I am sorry you have to take verbal abuse from your boyfriend. The things he says or insinuates is very insulting. It sounds like he is insecure with himself, so feels the need…
  • I was a 34C.. I am just delaying the inevitable of getting resized again. But my bras looks pretty ridiculous on me -- I can't fill them anymore!! haha
  • Go for a walk, listen to music. Clean out your fridge. Organize your closet, go to the bookstore and get a good book. Anything to keep your mind off of eating. Look up healthy recipes and plan out a nice meal for YOU because you deserve it! So he wasn't the guy for you, onto the next one!
  • @sarahliftsup is my health/fitness one - figured my friends would start to get annoyed haha
  • I love oatmeal for breakfast! I just buy the quick oats, 1/2 cup with some protein powder, 1/2 cup of almond milk and 1/2 cup of water, throw in a banana and mush it up while it's cooking. Then the fun part - the mix ins! Some days I'll add in pumpkin puree with the oats while its cooking and top with walnuts, raisins, and…
  • I used to be a big fan of Vega Choc-a-lot but ordered Shakeology to give a try and now I'm hooked. The chocolate shakeology is amazing, I want to try the other flavours, but that with pb and banana with almond milk tastes like a milkshake.
  • Hey! Thanks for the reply! :) I think there is confusion with the way this program works. It is definitely not one where you are starving yourself! I love food, love to eat, and there is no way I could survive from eating 1200 calories a day! No one would want to be around me, if that was the case. The containers are not…
  • Annnnyone?? This is the video of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_5g5rh1ezY
  • That's really good advice above about writing down your goals! I can always use more people on my friends list for motivation!
  • I'm 27 years old, 3rd year vet student, so usually in classes all day and fitting in work outs and healthy eating when I oh-so-want to buy all the junk food in the world to help me cope! I'm almost done doing Chalean Extreme, love building muscle and seeing my body get more toned! I love having active friends on here to…
