  • My intelligence,my love of exploration,my long legs,and my compassion for others.
  • Free..You can change your Macros on the side tab for free.The paid version just tells you the ratios at each meal..I just set my Carb level to 15% And make sure my protein is high enough..If I'm eating too many carbs at breakfast,the lil warning thing tells me,so no need to pay..But,I also check my labels before putting…
  • I lost about 5 inches around my waist from walking,my diet hadn't changed..but,I had been very sedentary before that...I did best between 12-15k per day,most of it was completed before noon..that was the key for me;getting most of it out of the way early in the day.
  • You ate a high sodium meal on Saturday..It's only Tuesday😆..Give your body some time. Drink lots of water and continue to eat clean,it will come off..The 1st few weeks it comes off faster, don't expect consistent results...some weeks you might eat perfectly and gain..give your body time to adjust... And maybe, don't weigh…
  • It's been correct for me, sometimes a few days late,tho...
  • OP, You will get 200 different answers,and each person will be convinced that their way is correct..and,it just might be-FOR THEM! I would start with a physical,blood work,and a hormone panel..That can save you a lot of time, finding what's best for YOUR body.. Another poster mentioned not being hungry after eating…
  • Add PCOS to that list..
  • Check your Negative calorie setting,from a computer..Mine does not work from my cell phone...
  • It depends on my Weight loss goals for the week. If I'm being SUPER strict,I'll take half of the entree home and weigh each part,(My FAVORITE taco place uses 4oz of meat in EACH taco). So,comparibles would not work because most places use way less).Then I Google comparibles-and use the higher average. But,90% of the…
  • I work 3rd shift,I do 'Lazy meal prep',.. During my busy weeks,I buy pre-made healthy foods..Bagged salads,naked chicken from Popeyes or Chick file -A,Roasted whole chicken,Soup,portable fruit,pre portioned nuts,protein shakes 2 make protein coffee...I keep my water bottle at the desk,and set a phone reminder to chug…
  • Sorry about your breakup.Been there w the breakup WL..Just try to focus on you and being around friends and family.Distractions help..stay social. As far as eating,I would try meal prepping..I usually make meals for 2-4 days at a time,then add on every few days..I save 2 days out of the week to eat out,or hang w…
  • I would start with CICO,it's free(buy a food scale).. Actually,I would get a complete checkup at the Dr. 1st,to make sure that you don't have any hormonal or blood issues. I didn't know for YEARS that I had Pcos,so my eating plan has to reflect that or,I'll struggle more than necessary. Build muscle..I lose weight fast,now…
  • Great job!!!
  • Hi! I'm Layla..Lost a bunch,stopped for almost 1 year...back at it to attack the last 30-40..I'm trying to go slow because my thighs were getting loose,haha! Feel free to add me... I'm a great supporter,but my food diary is trash😅 ....Currently eating Sunflower seeds for dinner.
  • I have PCOS,what worked best was low carb,metformin,and walking daily...Get your numbers checked to kniw where you stand.Some people may not need to take meds or go low carb..good luck!
  • Any foods that I have a problem with,I dont keep them in my house...Like chips or cookies.I still eat both,but I'll buy 1 cookie or one tiny bag of chips,while im out and keep it moving. I only like fresh baked bread,So I would just go to a nice bakery 1-2 a week to get my bread fix...
  • I was watching a TV show called-Worlds fittest couples..(or something like that),on The Paramount station.I noticed that most of the women had belly rolls when sitting down,but were flat while standing...that honestly surprised me...they were super fit,I love this post;it helps us to realize that our bodies are unique and…
  • Photo shoot with new clothes,hair,and makeup...Normal photos and sexy photos...At goal,I'll start saving for my tummy tuck lol!
  • Adjust your activity level
  • Also,work on strength training..building muscle helps with Insulin resistance...
  • Hi,I had Pcos and Insulin resistance too,What worked for me was either taking the drug Metformin and eating moderate carbs(80 or less), or without any insulin drugs..going low carb(30 or less).. Please speak to an Endocrinologist,to complete a full blood panel,hormone levels,A1c...They will tell you more based on your…
  • I have a Apple shape..My body type is like yours...Size 8-10 pants and 12-14 tops....,no hips or bum..All belly and boobs and upper back fat. I've tried various plans,most of them worked..But,my belly fat comes off fastest,when I eat low carb..I've kept off 110 pounds over the last 3 years..Still have 30lbs to go,but I've…
  • Go to a beauty supply store in a Black neighborhood(or any neighborhood with a BIG wig selection) and try on wigs, they usually sit you down, put on a wig cap and let you try on as many different styles as you'd like. They do have wigs in other neighborhoods, but those seem to have a much larger selection. You can also get…
  • I'm going to get professional Photos done,the sexy ones..1st I'll have a spa day,hair,makeup,and a few outfits for the photo shoot.
  • Your body needs time to adjust to your new lower calories, eat more filling foods.Whats filling to me is Chicken breast,Greek yogurt, broth based soups,grapefruit,salads..find foods/meals that satiate you, you have to experiment to find what works. When I lost 100lbs I didn't eat my exercise calories,but I wasn't afraid to…
  • Hi! I'm right there with you.I like the support and accountability of Ww.I lost 100 after my vsg,then I was stuck for 2 years..
  • Awesome! Im proud of you!
  • For me it's alcohol.I can't have 1 drink,I'll try my very best to finish the bottle.So,I ELIMINATED it,EVERY week that I gained weight was a week when I drank too much! .Now,I can binge on chips and sweets,-for those things I just don't bring them into my house and 90% of the time I won't get dressed to go get chips. If I…
  • When I lower my carbs/Sugar and Walk a LOT,my waist shrinks the fastest..low impact exercise and lower carbs helps me...try that for a bit,and see if it helps.
  • Hi,I have used both meal replacements and pills.The pills did work,but I was under the care of a Dr. I wouldn't take any pills without medical advice and proper blood work and ekg's done 1st....Also,the pills are temporary so the Dr. will(or should) also put you on some type of eating plan for the long run. I LOVE my meal…
