  • I lost more than 70 lbs and very few people actually told me that I have lost weight. Sometimes people avoid the subject because they think they might hurt you some way. I mean... I lost 70 lbs... in 2 years, I agree, but people should have noticed. I personally think that it's better this way than getting into weightloss…
  • Relish, Mustard, Ketchup - always, they can add up very quickly... especially ketchup Herbs and spices - almost never... I mean... it's easy to put 50 g of ketchup on a dish (even 100 g is easy), but I could never put 50g of pepper or chilli or parsley in a single serving of a dish.
  • Well, I think in european shoe sizes, because I'm, european. But I definetly lost also half a shoe size; more to think, it's more likely a 3/4 shoe size. Before I wore 39 on shoes and was a little lose, but know I definetly can wear 38. It depends of shoes (every type of shoe seems to fit me in a different size), but all…
  • Congratulations to your succes! I really like seeing MFP results because they show how different people are and how little the number on the scale counts. For example I'm also 25 years old and 5'7', started here at 210 lbs and I'm now 141 lbs, but I don't look nearly as good as you. Still have some to lose, especially from…
  • I just do it. Planning meals it's just a normal thing. Like palnning your work day or the cleaning of the house. Like planning a vacation or a cosmetic appoitment. Planning things in life it's normal. Watching your health and making sure you take enough nutrients it's again normal. One should take care of his/hers health.…
  • Today a had a smothie / milkshake made with 2 bananas, 250 ml almond milk, some oat flakes and ice cream!!!!
  • Due to my work schedule, I'm mostly have my dinner at 7 or 8 in the evening. Then I'll have my evening snack. I try not to eat 2 hours before going to bed and don't fill my stomach then. I sleep better on a rather empty stomach. My evening snack is a regular meal, but in smaller portions. I couldn't snack on fruits at…
  • Fat is good. You are not eating tons of greasy fat. Some cheese, a tablespoon of olive oil, some fatty fish like a salmon are very good in a normal, healthy lifestyle, and will never make you fat if you eat in small portions. Healthy fats are good for your overall health, hair and skin. When on a diet, I find it simple to…
  • I am very close to the 60 kg goal weigth I have... but still can't image myself there. Never could. Sometimes, I still se the old fat me in the mirror. But I'm still going on... don't know why. Well, now I don't have a goal weight. I just wanna lose until I don't have juggly fat on my thighs and my belly doesn't stick out.…
  • If I see a loss that it is more than would be normal, I would wait for another week or just put a slightly higher number that the scale shows. Even when starting the weight loss I would log the weight only once a week, even if I used the scale daily. But at this point in my weight loss (nearly the end), I usually take a…
  • Full beard (not too long), stubbles or clean shave. Depends on the guys' face and overall look. Goatees... maybe. I never liked a man that had a goatee, but the goatee wasn't really the reasson. I don't actually like `funky` facial hair styles.
  • 1.72 (5'6'') 64.6 kg (142 lbs) I wear shirts/dresses in M size European and 38 in jeans/pants. Most labels say that a M in European size is an S in US/UK size, but I never understand why.
  • On weekdays I'll have a greek yogurt before I get to work and some digestive biscuits when I get to work. I choose not to eat a lot at home because I use public transport and if someone with a bad smell goes in and I have a full stomach... it ruins all my day; it doesn't happen a lot, but I cannot know when it will happen.…
  • I had this issue when I was at my biggest weight, I'm still getting it. I have very close legs. My mother tucked me very well as a baby. For dresses/skirts, I usually cut old tights that are very fitted and with good material (such that won't roll) and wear them underneath. I don't wear short dresses/skirts so I cut them…
  • Doing it 7 days a week will make is more possible. 20 pounds/5 month is less than 1 pound a month. This needs a 500 calories deficit, and this means that you can eat the calories burned while exercising. That's a lot of calories, if you are not really small, you can eat 1600-1700 calories a day + whatever you exercise, and…
  • Well, nothing will work good as long as you don't eat right. I mean the right amount of protein and fat, because along with other nutrients, they are essential for hair to grow and look good. And I mean good fats, like salmon and almonds. Don't try to lose much weight. At 2 lbs per week target, you are more prone to hair…
  • How to you estimate your calorie intake? Do you use a scale, measurement cups or you just estimate?
  • You do not gain 100 pounds all of a sudden. It happens in time. I mean... if 20 or 30 pounds add up and he/she does nothing, one should try to understand what happens with her/his partner. My partners usually have been more heavy, not very athletic. But still, I would worry if he gained 30 pounds. Not like leaving him, but…
  • All my weightloss is due to sticking to MFP plan (limiting calories, counting calories, eating my workout calories). It wasn't liniar, but I just had patience and followed the plan.
  • When I run in the morning I split my breakfast in half: one for before running and one after. I ussually get myself 400-500 calories for breakfast, so it might not work for people that have tinny-tinny breakfasts/ For example, before the run I would have 200 ml al skim milk or a yoghurt with 2% fat, with enough oats to…
  • Planning. I did my masters degree and a full time job, along with losing weight. The key was planning. Preparing everything the evening before (packing snacks, making sandwiches for lunch, figuring out breakfast). I left every morning with all the food I needed for the day, except dinner. I cooked during weekends. I…
  • I actually have two mottos: `Patience is the key` and `Even if I will never have my dream body, it's still better than it used to be` One of my fears before weightloss was that it was useless. I will lose a couple of kgs, but still be fat, still be far from girls that look good. But what I learned is that every kg lost…
  • I'm not even 26 yet... but I personally think that the whole weight loss made me appear yourger. All those pounds make me look bad... and old. But my face was kind of baby like with those big cheeks. But still, I was mostly taken older than I was.
  • Gyros... goodness of chicken breast, cucumber, greek yoghurt, garlic and red onion, wrapped in a big pita. I deserved it after my run. :D
  • I personally don't consider exercise something that does not raise my heart rate to a high level. I always walked a lot... it's just leisure for me. Even as I got fat I walked a lot because it calms me... it's like reading or watching a good movie... I just couldn't consider it exercise/workout. I was active, but I ate a…
  • Cheese (any kind) in blocks (if I ate cheese in a meal, it would be at least 200 g in it). Bags of nuts. I was snacking on 100 g of almonds. Aka 700 calorie snack. And my dinner and lunch weren't light either. Butter. Everything tastes better with butter. Sauteed veggies. Morning eggs. Fish. Chicken. Full fat sour cream.…
  • We are doing 95% of groceries shopping on Saturday morning/early afternoon. I spend most of my time home on weekends to cook meals (especially week days dinners). It really depends on my plans for the weekend, sometimes I so most cooking Saturday, sometimes Sundays, sometimes in somewhere in between. I select the recipies…
  • I have a very light hooded jacket from Kalenji (a Decathlon brand... probably most people from outside Europe don't know about this sport store). The jacket is specially made for wind running (not for keeping warm) so maybe you can try searching jackets for windy weather. It's so light, that I can even wear it in…
  • Few people actually told me something related to my loss... but after almost 29 kg (64 lbs) lost... if someone didn't notices, they're blind. For me it was pretty hard because the first time someone told me I have lost `a little`, I had lost 9 kg (20 lbs). Most of the few `noticements` where actually after 15-20 kg. I…
