  • Great article and I've lost my 10%
  • If you won't believe in yourself, why should anyone else?
  • I'm struggling today because I didn't get enough sleep last night. I stayed up talking some political points with my daughter, and next thing I know it's a quarter to midnight! I've been doing SO WELL on getting to bed before 11pm for the past few weeks, so today I am REALLY feeling it! I'm guzzling coffee and just had a cream-filled donut - not good choices, I know. Also, the bit about "mouth hunger" is a good one. Sometimes if I see it, I want it and can't stop thinking about it. I'm still working on that one. Losing 10% of my weight would actually put me at my goal weight of 135 lbs, sounds good but SOOOO not easy. I've been trying for over a year and have made such little progress; nights like last night & attitude like this morning sure don't help! Oh well, at least lunch & dinner will be healthier than a donut. Try to get in that run this evening (probably a slow run, but better than nothing), and then get to bed by 10:30pm tonight. Hopefully that will give me a clearer head in the morning....
    I made a different sort of New Year's resolution at the beginning of this year - to just be healthier (portion control, reasonable workouts, fewer processed foods, more water). It has really paid off in a virtually painless way! I'm closing in on the 25 lb mark and eat just about whatever I want. (I just make sure I log EVERYTHING!) I feel better and my energy level is off the charts.
  • I have tried to solve the 'mouth hunger' problem by adding a list of 'Spoonfuls' to my tracker - a number of different combinations of small amountsof foods that I like on a dessert spoon. I have counted the calories for each combination as well as I can. It's like the fillings of a tiny cocktail sandwich - but no bread or canape of course. It has certainly helped me and may be of use to others.
  • Thank you for the comments. I am just starting my weight loss/life style changes.
    I did not realized how much I was eating until I began using the tracker. You have offered me the encouragement I needed.

    thank you jiminyc for the updated link.
  • I lose weight slowly, but I cherish every pound lost since I am obese. In 14 months I have lost 25 lbs and I get heart burn 2x a week instead of 7x a week, parts of my body are closed to toned looking, and my double chin is almost gone. I have 39 more lbs to go. I'm hopeful to get to a normal BMI by December. I can go up many, many flights of stairs without tiring. I remember being 194 lbs and getting exhausted going up 1.5 flights.
  • So far I've lost 5% of my body weight and I feel amazing! I sleep great, my energy level is increasing, I can do so much more with my body, and I even focus better. I can't wait to see what 10% feels like!
    I have lost 30 lbs. which is a little more than 10% of my body weight. I do not feel better. I hurt all the time from exercise. I never had knee probems before exercising - now they hurt all the time. I don't sleep better. I don't have more energy. I am usually hungry. My blood pressure was fine to begin with and still is but is not lower. The only positive is that my A1C number has dropped to near-normal and some of my clothes fit better. I get so tired of reading these articles about how everything will be much better if you just lost 10% of your body weight. BS!

  • I appreciate your logical suggestions. They are not to difficult to put into practice. The simplicity makes it more appealing and not so daunting.
    Low-Fat diet someone already said it and it is so true have to learn to read labels that is how I found almost everything that is low fat is high in sugar, and all the other things you mentioned I am sure
    Fast Weight Reduction Plan
    Fat-free foods happen to be popular for a long time. However, these foods are often not low in calories. Lots of people complete with fats absolutely free or lowered unwanted fat cookies and desserts. When ingesting a lesser amount of extra fat, they will eat additional processed sugars and carb supply, which can be full off energy and may be changed into fats saved in your body. As necessary, the chubby population still is escalating despite a large use of fat-free food. This means that which a fat-free eating plan is not actually the reply to shedding weight. .... continued reading
