  • I weigh myself every day, but I don't take those weights at face value- I use the Happy Scale app to predict what my true weight is, and I focus on the trend line rather than what the scale says, because it's so unpredictable (water weight, hormones, etc). I also use a tape measure about once every month to measure my…
  • Don't worry! Six days is NOTHING. I have gone through a month-long plateau before, where the scale did not budge, and then all of a sudden it started dropping again. If you are eating at a calorie deficit you are losing weight, whether or not the scale says you are. Try not to be disheartened if the reading on the scale…
  • Happy Scale isn't available on Android, however there is an app called Libra Weight Management which does the exact same thing
  • saundts, do you have an iPhone? If so, I HIGHLY recommend downloading an app called Happy Scale, and inputting your weigh-ins retroactively (as far back as you can be bothered to go). You'll be surprised. It's a clever little app that works out whether you are ACTUALLY losing weight, despite what the scale says. You will…
  • crazyycatlady1 is bang-on correct. I would like to add though, that most people - women especially, due to hormone fluctuations - do not lose weight linearly (a little bit every day). We go up and down like yo-yos. Last month my weight stayed the same for 2 weeks (in fact it went up a little bit) despite eating at a…
  • Hello! I'm 24! I don't have much left to lose, only about 15 pounds or so, but I'd be happy to have you as a friend. Feel free to add me!
  • Yum! It's been a very long time since I've had a snickers.
  • added you all, thank you! :D
  • Hi everyone! I only have 25lbs to lose, but I do share my diary with friends! I would like other friends who also share their diaries! Feel free to add me!
  • Sometimes when you do really well for a week, it actually takes another week or two to actually see the results. It works the other way round too. Sometimes I have a really bad week, and the scales still say I weigh the same. Then the next week after I've been eating normally, I gain a couple of pounds. It's like there's a…
  • I need to lose around 25lbs! Feel free to add me. I'd love some female friends in their 20s or 30s who need to lose around the same amount. Also people who have their diaries open for friends to view, I love looking at what other people have eaten for inspiration!
  • I get extremely excited at the very idea of scented candles. I hadn't thought about that. I love yankee candles, but they are so expensive. Maybe I could get one when I hit my halfway point or something. Have you tried days out? maybe there's a show or a film you want to see in the cinema? Or a place you haven't visited…
  • This is a brilliant idea! I like it a lot. Hadn't thought of it. I'm English so it's a pound for a pound, haha. Although, I may do £2 per lb lost. I only have 25lbs to lose, so it will be a small kitty otherwise!
  • My top piece of advice for when you fall off the wagon is always always log it. Even if you're not sure exactly how many calories were in the thing you ate (restaurant food, etc) - search the database for similar foods and try your best to make a reasonable guess. After I fall off the wagon, there's nothing that sobers me…
  • She was too pretty for me!
  • Hey all! I'm Emily. 23 years old. Old but new - joined in 2011, lost weight, put it all back on again haha! Trying to lose 25lbs currently. I'm looking for friends who have their food diaries visible (I'm nosy and it inspires me!) - especially looking for other vegetarians. Anyone who sees this and wants to add me, feel…
  • I'm coming to terms at the moment with the idea that I'll have to. 2-3 years ago I lost lots of weight (about 35 pounds) and after using MFP to maintain my weight for a couple of months, I said to myself "surely I don't need to count calories any more, I'm so used to this by now that I should be able to eyeball it,…
  • I'm going to eat sensibly as if it were a normal day, except for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years' Eve. Three days of binging in the grand scheme of things isn't going to make a difference and you only live once.
  • People are so freaking mean on this site. You guys are all forgetting that eating foods high in sugar all day long can do a hell of a lot of **** to your teeth for a start. I've got a cavity right now because even though I brushed my teeth three times a day I ate lots of sugary foods IN BETWEEN brushing my teeth (fruit,…
  • Don't worry I know what you mean. There are sooo many people who when I tell them I'm "watching what I eat" say "noooo forget about it, treat yourself! Just this once won't hurt! We all need a little indulgence once in a while! You're not fat anyway! You only live once! Why spend your whole life on a diet" blah blah blah.…
  • There's no deep, meaningful or emotional reason why I gained weight. It was simply because when I finished my GCSEs at age 16 my lifestyle changed a lot - I wasn't doing P.E/Gym lessons any more and I wasn't walking to school and back every day. Yet, I continued to eat the same. My calories in started to exceed my calories…
  • I'm 5'4" and 126lbs and I wear a UK 10-12 (US 6-8). I'm not sure what's wrong with me. I'm sure I should be in smaller sizes than that, judging by all of your 2-4 comments =/
  • Yummmm, I'll have a Coke please!
  • BE CAREFUL AND CHECK THAT YOUR DRESS CAN BE ALTERED BEFORE YOU LOSE ANY MORE WEIGHT. I'm shouting because everyone here is saying "Yeah you can get it altered go for it!" BUT when I was a bridesmaid back in September, I had the same dilemma as you, and I checked with my seamstress and she said that because of the intricate…
  • "You don't need to exercise any more, you're thin enough." Oh yes! That's right, because exercising is just for getting thin. Only people who need to lose weight are supposed to exercise. It's not, you know, for staying active and healthy and maintaining muscle mass and avoiding heart disease or anything.
  • Untrue..... Coffee counts as water. Just make sure you also count the calories in the milk/cream/sugar or whatever else you add. If you go by the logic that coffee is a 'diuretic', you do realise that WATER ITSELF is a diuretic? Water is water. Your body doesn't care where it comes from.
  • Eat back your exercise calories, people!! The goal that MFP sets up for you, ALREADY HAS a calorie deficit built into the goal. If it tells you you're allowed 700 more calories, that means that if you eat 700 more, you will STILL BE AT A CALORIE DEFICIT and will still lose weight. Come on, it's not that hard to…
  • Welcome to Onederland!
  • There could be two reasons for this: 1. You ARE just a smaller version of your old chubby self. You may have lost 'weight', but you probably lost muscle instead of fat because you haven't been muscle training enough. That means you still have the same percentage of body fat as before, or maybe even more. So even though…
  • The one thing you HAVE to understand is that our bodies are organic, not mathematic. We don't lose weight in a linear fashion. You won't lose the same amount of weight every day until the day you reach your goal. Your weight can fluctuate up to FIVE POUNDS in just ONE DAY alone. It depends on tons of things: how much…
