  • I agree with all points except the starvation mode section. For 99% of women eating 1,000 cal a day will NOT put you in starvation mode. Yes you will Feel like your starving because your used to consuming alot more calories. If you eat healthy fats and more protein, less carbs and stay at 1000-1400 Cal daily and 50 net carbs or less you will see weight loss & blood sugar stabilization. Going below 1000 cal daily is unhealthy, above that is low but not starvation mode. You are making your body burn stored fat for energy instead of getting energy from eating carbs.
  • That is why I weigh in weekly! You will get discouraged getting on the scale daily! I have my husband to keep the scale in his truck so I don't get on it! Sounds silly but I was sabotaging myself by getting on it every day!
  • Little steps lead to big changes.

    Thank you for some timely reminders.
  • Slow and steady really is best. And when you need to lose a lot so is breaking it down into mangeable goals and then maintaining each goal for awhile. I need to lose 10 - gained after very hard year dealing with meds and medical issues. Goal # 1 is to lose that 10 and maintain for a month, maybe 2 - then I'll hit the 10 I always wanted to lose. When I do that then I'll maintain for 2-3 months before moving to the 10 I feel I should lose to enable others to help me more easily when I need it - and yes, move to maintain it and the other 20 for as long as I am able.

    This broadly encompassing article really grounded some of my more constructive thinking regarding weight loss. Based on the "steady, easy-does-it" wise philosophy recommended here, I think I'll concentrate on consistency and weigh myself just once a month (which has been a successful technique for me in the past). I've also gone through destructive bouts of "scale-hopping," i.e., jumping on the scale once a day and "living 'n' dying by the scale" - always a rotten idea for me, as my weight can vary up to 5-6 pounds within a day. Thank you!
  • I thought this was a good article, and motivating as well. I have a comment regarding daily weighing. I recently read an article that said research shows that people who weigh themselves daily tend to lose more weight. I've read comments on both sides of that issue. Personally, when I weigh daily, I am more conscious of my decision to lose weight.
  • This blog was very helpful. Even I am trying to loose weight from long back but reading this blog I got to know where I use to commit mistake. Keep posting such helpful blogs.
