  • My mom is German and my dad is Polish and we almost always had a side salad with dinner (to be eaten with dinner) unless a big part of the meal was a vegetable. Like, if we were having gołąbki (cabbage rolls), we wouldn't have a salad. If we were having kielbasa and pierogi, we'd have sauerkraut, sauteed bell peppers,…
  • I love my cottage cheese plain. But, sometimes some chia seeds, honey, and/or raspberries (or any berries) are a nice addition. :)
  • You may add me. I'm on a 75 day streak right now, if you feel your self losing motivation, you can DM me and I'll be your cheerleader. :) Starting is a little hard, but it'll be easier and you'll feel so accomplished and happier once you've gotten past the first 14 days.
  • 5'5/175. I had knee surgery some years back and I started working out again in early December. About two weeks ago my knees started hurting (I'd been consistently going 4-5 days a week to the gym and had a consecutive 8 days in the gym) and I took a two week break where I only hit the gym 2 days and focused on abs, chest,…
  • Yum! Very reminiscent of a good souvlaki! A salad that I make that would go nicely with this: 1 1/2-2 cups lettuce 1/2-1 cup tomatoes 1/2-1 cup cucumber 1/4 cup red onion 1/4 pomegranate arils 1/4 cup feta cheese 2 tbsp black olives 2 tbsp Cedar's Garlic and Dill Tzatziki I usually eat this with chicken kabobs marinated in…
  • Also had knee surgery! Agree with all of the posts above. Recumbent and stationary bike are absolutely great. Work yourself up to using elliptical (not that bad on the joints, low impact) and gain strength/muscle by slowly increasing incline on the treadmill. Take things slow and steady at first and listen to your body

  • Honestly, I've had my fitbit a year and have only used it 5 months and have had so many issues with it. I've noticed a lot of people in this community reccomend Garmin. I'd consider looking into their line of fitness trackers if your fitbit is unable to be fixed. They are a little pricey, but that's what I intend on doing…
  • Was stuck at 182 for about two weeks. Now I've been stuck at 179 for a week. Here's an a couple update pictures: Feb 14 2019 (top right) 198lb, Jan 24 (bottom right) 181.6lb, Jan 31 179.9lb(left) And today, Feb 5, 178.8lb:
  • I love that I stumbled on this post today. Today is day 2 of my period (I'm usually on it for 3-4 days) and my cramps on the first day were debilitating (like call off work and lay in fetal position for five hours debilitating). My period came three days earlier than expected this month and I admittedly skipped the gym…
  • I'm a daily weigher, but I started incorporating a lot more strength training three weeks ago. Since then the scale hasn't budged. Going to likely weigh once a month now. I was getting too frustrated/discouraged because the number was staying high (despite losing two pant size and three top sizes). Brought the measuring…

  • Good advice. I was referring to the OP of this post more than myself. I enjoy all the food I eat. My problem is I'm never hungry and have to force myself to eat to reach my calorie goals. My "cheat days" still leave me at my calories needed for the day. I'll just have a bowl of white rice instead of brown rice when I…

  • I allow myself to have a cheat day/meal once a week. I may not always use it every week, but I think it's good to give yourself the option so that you don't feel discouraged/overwhelmed. Just cheat a little and then go back to your usual food the next morning. :) Don't beat yourself up over it.

  • I has an update for my fitbit and then did that. Still wasn't syncing so I deleted and reinstalled my fitbit app and then they worked fine together. Perhaps try that if you haven't already? I still have some issues with it occasionally, but I chalk it up to a newer phone and older fitbit.
  • Hello there! What do you define as "treats"? Candies or something else? If you're indulging on candies, I simply say swap it out: replace your candy with a pack of fresh raspberries or blackberries (even a banana). I don't have much of a sweet tooth (bread has always been my weakness), but when I'm in a munching mood, I…
  • Hi there! If you'd like to add me, I have similar goals to you. :) I was 201lb in September and dropped to 191.6lb in December prior to counting calories and exercising. I've been calorie counting since 12/8/19 and have lost 9.8lbs doing cardio and weight training 3-4x a week. I would still like to lose about 50-60lbs and…
  • Congratulations on your weight loss! I lost 9.8lbs in 5 weeks and I definitely don't notice it while looking in the mirror (5'4 female, 191.8 to 182.0lb). But, yesterday, I fit into a pair of pants that were fairly tight prior to the weight loss. They fit perfectly and were super comfy. They're a size 10 and I was wearing…
