  • also WAIT A SEC. I have no idea how I didn't notice this but: I said above that I'm only about 7lbs down.. ...but I just checked my main page there and, no, I'm 9lbs down! Or in other words, I am eyein' up getting into double-figures of loss and th…
  • I'm only about 7lbs down with a long way to go yet (about another 35lbs, give or take- we'll see how it goes!), and I never would have thought I'd be posting in here so soon, but: Nobody told me that I'd be having a blast. That eating at a deficit …
  • So, me and my scales have been not on speaking terms this week. It's one of those weeks where the fecking thing refuses to budge, despite the fact that I KNOW I'm at a deficit 'cause I'm trackin' everything and my weighing scales just lives on the c…
  • So I'm really curious as to whether this is just a US thing, or whether people have had it happen in other places, too? I'm not American, and I've never, ever seen anyone on their phone in the sauna. I've rarely even been present for people chattin…
  • (Quote) Definitely, eat! And: you mention avoiding eating fatty foods, and avoiding eating fat. Unless you have a specific medical reason for doing so (and if so: please listen to your DOCTOR and not some rando on the internet), there's no real r…
  • The food at that cafe that's a ten minute walk down the road should do it. But only if you don't drive there.
  • I think the biggest thing may be to remember- this has been a big shock and it's a huge change to your life. It's totally normal to feel disheartened or scared of the future right now. That's okay. This is going to be hard right now, but it will ge…
  • Never thought a cartoon character could be gym goals, but.. HERE WE ARE eh?
  • Physically? In women, I am a sucker for physical strength. Like, well-defined shoulders of a woman who lifts have me weak at the knees. In men I tend to go more for the skinny boys who I could lift. In anyone, deep brown eyes, a quick wit and genu…
  • (Quote) I like going to the gym wearing what I find comfortable. What I find comfortable is, yes, leggings and tank tops. I am not wearing leggings and tank tops for people to see me. In fact, honestly, right now my body isn't in a state where I…
  • 15 lbs in 25 days seems.. like a very extreme rate of weight loss, which would be incredibly unhealthy for most people to sustain?
  • (Quote) You know, I NEVER knew that stress causes water retention. ...and knowing that, the four pounds overnight increase after a STRESSFUL day earlier this week (where despite the stress I stuck to my eating plan!) suddenly makes sense 😊 Thank …
  • I think if you're already finding it confusing, then the additional features in Premium are only going to confuse you further! I've never done Premium, but after several years of learning more about how my body responds to different kinds of nutrit…
  • So I have this jacket that I love. For the last while... well, our chilly midwinter weather was NOT why I'd been wearing it unzipped, let me say. This morning I head out the door, chuck on my jacket and.. zip it right up without it feeling even a t…
  • Y'know, I think that knowing rationally that its NBD and you definitely didn't put on 3 pounds in 2 days (like.. nobody eats THAT much without noticing..) is such a different thing to seeing those numbers on the scale and not feeling deflated. It's…
  • Like everyone's saying, daily fluctuations of a few pounds are totally normal. Though it's absolutely understandable to be freaked out by them when you're not used to it! To give you an example: yesterday morning i weighed a whole FOUR POUNDS more …
  • (Quote) This, precisely. So my sedentary daily allowance is literally 1250 calories per day. Nature of being a short person on a deficit. I'm VERY active. Yesterday, for example? According to my Fitbit, with the amount of exercise I was doing I b…
  • ...that first way is for days when I'm just going into the study to work and I want a mug of some hot wakey-wakey juice next to me. The second way is, of course, for slammin' back as I'm running out the door for a morning workout at the gym, to get …
  • Ha, RELATABLE. I drink my coffee black, by the way, 'cause I'd way rather spend my calories on food than on milk in my coffee. So I totally get why someone would want to make that choice and save what was, in my case at least, sometimes a couple hu…
  • (Quote) Oh c'mere, RELATABLE! I mean I'm 37- so not far off 40!- and in my case it was starting on a medication a year ago which caused my appetite to SHOOT up and my energy level to TANK down for the first months I was on it. Luckily at this stage…
  • (Quote) You know something? This whole thread got me thinking about how I used to blame my "giant lifting/squatting thighs/butt" on why I keep on wearing my jeans through on the inner thigh after a few months. I got so used to it that I …
  • (Quote) As the delightedly-proud human to a giant wonderful goofball of a rescue dog: why yes, I guess adopting some jeans would be an excellent idea! ...Not the dog pictured in my avatar, I'm afraid. That is a whole DIFFERENT Best Boy.
  • (Quote) Nooooooooo! Losing the perfectly-comfy-softest jeans is the worst :( :(
  • I'm 11lbs above my first goal- which is to bring myself down into the "overweight" category. It feels big enough that I need to be serious about tackling it, but also manageable enough that I know I'll get there in the next couple months.
  • That sounds so hard to handle, and I'm sorry that my comment made light of it. I'm not going to pretend to have advice on this one, since it's clearly outside my own experience. But I will say just that that DOES seem like an incredibly difficult ur…
  • I've spent the past couple of months slowly "ramping-up" my weekly exercise from a fairly sedentary lifestyle to gym 3x week, a couple of sports/cardio sessions a week and getting a decent number of steps in every day. It took a LONG time…
  • (Quote) Ah, I describe my current body shape as that of someone who clearly likes the gym and playing sports.. but who also CLEARLY likes finishing the last slice of pizza :D So the great butt shape is under there.. just waiting to be revealed :D
  • Thanks so much to both of you! I'm clearly still working out the most accurate way to track my exercise calories, and as I do 3 weights workouts every week it's important to me that I get this one at least in the ballpark of right. Obviously calorie…
