  • ditto and I did it starting at 43...I've kept it off just following similar rules I learned here on these forums. I have put on some "extra" over the last 18 months....and here getting it back off doing what I know works. food scale, correct entries, not stressing over it and exercise for 60-90 mins. need to get back to…
  • let me just add in the correct entry too...I've seen some pretty "too good to be true" entries in diaries lately...
  • I could never weight meat raw for calorie logging as I cooked for at least 3 people every night so I got used to logging it as cooked and the method it was cooked with. I would double check my entry against USDA website to confirm the calories and protein were correct and saved that entry for myself... the rest is all…
  • I looked at your diary and I don't see evidence of logging everyday, for example nothing July 2, 4-12th, 15, 16,19-22, nor logging using a foodscale...you might use one but you aren't logging it as such. As I said, yesterday you record 4oz of ground sirloin at 160...when in fact 3oz is 207 per usda website so you are off…
  • burning 600-700 calories a work out seems quite high. as well to the question how are you measuring your intake? for example yesterday you recorded 4 oz of ground sirloin at 160 calories.... nope....3oz of ground sirloin per USDA is 207 calories. and 2 large eggs @120...probably closer to 140... all those missteps add up.…
  • Probably the same reason when you look at paintings from the middle ages they are plump and round... that's what people strived for at that time... I mean through the ages the ideal of what beauty is has changed over and over..
  • I still lurk...;)
  • some people can't do it genetically. if you want it bad enough you just do it... is it sustainable...depends on the person and their build etc. if most of the time you don't feel it's worth it then you won't get there. I personally don't care if I ever have them...but it has nothing to do with anything other than i just…
  • Thank you...you made me smile and yes it's all good in my world. <3 <3 <3
  • I used to be able to eat intuitively...but then I couldn't and I gained... I used MFP to lose and logged daily for about 3 or 4 years of maintenance and then tried to eat intuitively and it has worked for maintenance to a "degree" I have maintained my range for a while but know that weight can creep up if I am travelling a…
  • you get that hips are "booty and thighs" pretty much right???
  • If you are looking for a program to build strength continue with 5x5..just eat more food. To build you need a progressive overload (which 5x5 does) and an increase of calories (over maintenance) keep in mind that you will build some muscle and add fat as that is the way a bulk works. Unless you want to recomp at which time…
  • I am familiar with that particular math equation... I just know for me and others in studies I have read where 1 mile is walked or ran regardless of weight similar calories counts are burned...not the exact same but close enough (I think 7 calories dif). Keeping in mind these were all "average" speeds and a few different…
  • For the equivalent time yes...but not equivalent distance.
  • then if it's about distance than it's not even that significant...walk 1 mile vs run 1mile is about 5 calories difference...even if you are heavier...1 mile is 1 mile..but walking 1mile=15mins (for me anyway) runnign 1mile=10mins...same calories as above... but to do a 5k (3miles) 45mins walking 30mins running so if I run…
  • I tracked until I didn't have to.. To maintain I don't have to track...to lose I do. so best of both worlds I can maintain intuitively but not to lose...go figure right.... PS I could lose but I like fitting my treats in so I track and plan ahead during loss phases.
  • ...you burn a few more calories per mile but not a lot...it's about time at this point. If I run for 1 hour vs walking I will burn more calories in that hour... This is a similar discussion that goes around 1lb of fat vs 1lb of muscle...both are 1lb just muscle takes up less space....vs muscle weighs more than fat...which…
  • no change for me... A. What are you doing maintain your calorie count? ~~~same thing I've always done...use a food scale and logging. B. How are you compensating for your normal excercise routine? ~~~no change...I use a home gym and do what I can anyway. C. How many pounds (gained) are you willing to allow yourself in this…
  • I've actually read a few studies that indicate it doesn't matter in the distance. Normal weight walking @ 2.94 MPH burns 93.9 calories Overweight walking @ 2.97 mph burns 98.4 calories Marathon Runners Running @ 6.78 mph burns 99.3 calories... It's all about duration...1 mile is after all 1 mile...
  • Glad I have a home gym complete with yoga, treadmill, bench, bars, squat rack and cables... If you want to exercise you find a way...kettle balls, cans of beans, water jugs etc...
  • are you scared of falling back into old habits tho? What did you do to counter that besides the surgery.... And to adjust the band would require more surgery???? I lost over 60lbs in a year just using a calorie deficit but I also addressed the issues at hand... WLS is no guarantee....
  • which is even weirder for the first calculation as 1/2kg is more than 1lb so it should have stayed at 1200...but yes there is a different between those stats. 171 is 5 ft 6,78 kg is 171 and 1/2kg is 1.1lb so a smaller person losing more gets to eat more than you? something is off. PS as for your new TDEE I would be wary as…
  • Except MFP is not WW and when doing using MFP it is expected that you would eat back exercise calories... If you had read the method in which MFP used you would have known that NEAT vs TDEE etc... As well I had similar stats to you...aka 5 ft 6 and 175...the calories it gave me for 1lb a week was 1460...I find it odd you…
  • who cares? I mean really. It could help with educating the general population as it is more demonstrative than a nutritional label...which most don't know how to read (otherwise they would know it was per serving not for the package) But in reality it won't matter to most. In Canada we have awful warnings on our cigarette…
  • 1200 calories is the lowest recommended intake for adult women. they are bandied about due to lack of education. Most people claiming to eat 1200 really aren't...it's more like 1500-2k if they were to log it accurately. Now don't get me wrong I can do 1200 for a day...but then I need to recover. 1400 is my minimum where I…
  • See for me exercise isnt' for weight loss or muscle gain....as muscle gain requires more than just exercise and weight loss can be helped by exercise but that's shouldn't be the main driver. Exercise is for health and fitness. So it's easy to say why I do it. Mental health, I like being strong, to be healthy and fit.
  • mine is tracked using my fitness track that is sync'd to MFP.
  • you couldn't pay me enough to do it. After I have seen the aftermath of it...nope. There is a woman I know that admits she knows what to do just isn't consistent with it...and was told by her doctor if she lost any more weight she would no longer be eligible for the surgery...so she started eating a lot... You know how to…
  • @heybales Not sure why I am mentioned here. I didn't bring up circuit training at all. I subscribe to the fact that for weight loss exercise is not necessary at all but it is good for health and fitness and that cardio and weights both have their place. And I subscribe to doing both... *shrugs* I did read all the posts...
