  • You can add me, I'm 230 lb, at 33, I maintained 165 for about 7 years after I had my first kid, then the pandemic happened. I'm hoping to ultimately get back to 165 but I'm taking it slow, feel free to add me, I think my diary is public and I love seeing posts and liking friends accomplishments! Active friends make me feel…
  • Sizes are so inconsistent that I don’t even measure my weight loss that way. Depending on the store and style my pant size is an 8 all the way up to a 12 and in tops anywhere between a small to an xl.
  • Walking around your living space might be a more gentle solution than yoga. Or look up some chair yoga on youtube. If you can set up two places to sit and walk from one to the next as tolerated. As well gentle chair yoga might be a better fit than trying to do a general 30 minute yoga practice if you are coming from a…
  • I have about 20 lb left to lose. I will add you.
  • Myfitnesspal. Eat what you have been eating for the past two years. Log your meals. Make your portions smaller or leave out snacks or other high calorie things so that what you eat fits in your calorie goal. Done.
  • I would say that you need to set progressive goals, and not just scale goals. Success is extremely motivating. Losing 10 lb, buying jeans that fit, cooking dinner for yourself 5 days in a row, getting a 30 day logging streak, completing some kind of fitness activity, hitting a certain step count. Whatever you set as your…
  • I'm on an antidepressant. When I first started my appetite went crazy. I was ravenous. However, extreme anxiety had caused me to have a lot of trouble eating in the months leading up to me going on the medication. I had been essentially forcing myself to eat while my stomach flipped and turned. I just kept counting my…
  • Sounds like you are maintaining. It is normal to fluctuate +/- 5 lb, especially for a woman.
  • I think even above the potential hormonal changes etc having a short break from deficit has always helped me mentally refocus. Being slightly hungry all the time gets to me mentally. At a certain point I find I'm not losing because I am having an extra snack here, eating back too many exercise calories, not measuring…
  • Are you weighing and measuring everything? If your consistently logging under 1000 calories and not feeling hungry there is a chance your logging is off. Are losing weight at a rate that would confirm you are eating so few calories? My advice to anyone who 'can't seem to eat enough'. Eat a chicken breast, an avacado, or a…
  • Since you are losing .75 lb per week and your body is currently healing from an injury I would probably just stick with what your doing and slowly work up to exercising. If you keep eating the same as you are, once you add in exercise you should be able to lose 1-1.5 lb per week easily. In the meantime let your body heal…
  • If you looked at my diary you would see Taco Bell, burgers, chips etc. if I couldn't have these things now and then I am confident I would have failed at weight loss ages ago.
  • I've been maintaining a 50 lb weight loss for about a year. I'm currently 14 weeks pregnant and have only gained the recommended amount. Plan on 'maintaining' a healthy body weight throughout pregnancy and getting back it my maintainence range ASAP after. I have either been losing or maintaining for a total of 2 1/2 years…
  • I'm due the 26th. I have been maintaining since last April but hormonal eating is my downfall. I'm planning to track throughout my pregnancy and stay as fit as I can.
  • Some would say obesity is not always a choice. I have never been obese, but I have watched people struggle with it and not everyone has the resources, knowledge, mental energy etc to simply beat obesity.
  • I've also been wondering how accurate their calorie burns are. I don't usually eat back exercise calories. But it would be great to find out if they are accurate. I usually do their workout and do the most intense version then log somewhere in the middle of the calorie range and don't eat them back.
  • TTC as well. I'm trying to set myself up for a healthy, active pregnancy. Maintaining my weight, but I started tracking again when we started TTC as I realize that trying and then hopefully pregnancy itself could easily cause me to get of track with the healthy habits I have formed. Feel free to add me.
  • Just about to say this. With very little fibre in your diet how much poo is in your colon right now? Are you following some kind of plan that ensures proper nutrition? This sounds like quite a strange eating plan. Although even with the strangest of eating plans you should lose weight if you are keeping below your TDEE.…
  • I'm just going to say, my wonderful, super awesome husband has loved me and told me I was beautiful, sexy etc at my heaviest and my thinnest and I feel the same about him. I don't know if that is the norm, but we are just committed to loving each other and have just as awesome of a connection. We both encourage each other…
  • Thanks everyone I will look in to those workouts :)
  • While you might get fast results, if you're a normal person you will probably also burn out and give up. For me I found that starting out slow and getting stricter as I got closer to my goal was easier. At the beginning I ONLY worried about calories. I did not think about macros, exercise, sugars, sodium, cholesterol.…
  • I ate five slices of pizza and cheesy bread on Friday. I regret nothing. Weight loss is about a calorie deficit. I am able to overall maintain a deficit while occasionally eating high calorie foods. Obviously it would be quite difficult for me to maintain weight loss eating five slices of pizza every day, so I don't. But I…
  • I love trying new recipes. Then when I find a good one I throw it in the rotation with the same old same old ones. I usually don't eat the same thing twice in a month with the exception of a couple favourites.
  • I rarely engage with people like that. They obviously don't science if they think calories have nothing to do with metabolism and their life choices seem to be working for them. I just giggle to myself at the woo and move on with my life. For the record I've lost a quarter of my body weight and maintained for a year now by…
  • I remember feeling very shy about this in the beginning because I was embarrassed and scared to fail. I sent you a request and I just want to let you know you are not alone and you can do this.
  • Could you get an activity tracker that syncs and wear that to work. Then keep your activity level at sedentary and let it adjust for you?
  • I really like Cookie and Kate and the Minimilist Baker. They both have blogs with lots of tasty recipes.
  • I am in Ontario as well, if you don't qualify for WLS through OHIP and you are set on having it, I would recommend either saving up or getting financing. You live in a province with qualified, highly trained Bariatric surgeons who provide pre and post op support. The regulations here vs there are just not comparable. You…
  • I just ate some toast and peanut butter. I love it. I eat peanut butter several times a week. I do not eat it with a spoon though because I know that would end with me eating a bazillion cals of peanut butter. I just plan to put it on toast, make a peanut sauce for stir fry, add it to a shake, put it on pancakes etc. that…
