I'm finally doing it...

...does anyone else want to?

I've got about 15 extra pounds I've been lugging around. I don't look "bad" but I know I'd look and feel much better without this extra weight.

I'm a pseudo vegetarian (I eat fish ever so often, but strict otherwise) and don't eat junk food, sweets or drink pop - I've been that way for years. After trying several diets with no success, I've just found my problem: I'm not eating enough (about 700-1000 cals per day, and I wasn't even aware.) And what I am eating, isn't balanced. So apparently my bod has been hanging on to every calorie in fear that it won't get another.

I found a site that you can use online to track your personal intake in the form of a food journal. And it's FREE! And confidential. I'm totally aware that it's rude to post that information here in our forum, but if you send me a PM, I'll be glad to share it, (unless some of the other regulars say it's OK to post here.)

So, I have a trip to take in October, and a fabulous pair of jeans I'd like to wear while on the trip. Anyone else want to join me on my quest to shed a few pounds?

Hi, friend! But, um...I'm not even sure what this means! But if you're saying I need to exercise, I already do!

I bought this slightly different one in the end. It was 40 from Argos (the best shop in the world) and it's fantastic! (they had cheaper ones but they would probably have been too flimsy)
It has a little computer on it too to show calories/ number of steps / time elapsed etc. etc.
And it's very sturdy too so no falling off (unless exercising whilst drunk which is never advisable!)
I would have bought a proper machine but I live in a 1 bedroom flat in London so space is an issue.

Week two has begun! I actually didn't do so badly calorie-wise last week, but I'm trying to watch the carbs - even the good, complex ones - and make sure the lean protein is there.

Drinking a bit on the weekends does not do a lot for those numbers! But it's back to the discipline now that it's Monday.

My exercise machine should arrive between this Wednesday and next Thursday...yes!!

Hope you all are still with me on this journey to be less!

i'm currently working on my weight as well

i gained 12 kg in 2 years because i got handicapped and couldn't walk anymore. my ass has become huge!

my diet works on boosting my calorie intake. it's a slow way of dieting, but at least i can stuff myself!

i eat:
06:00
2 slices of bread with cheese
vitamin supplements

10:00
2 slices of bread with cheese or jam

11:00
apple

12:00
2 slices of bread with cheese or meat

14:00
2 slices of bread with cheese

16:00
orange

19:30
big plate of salad with fruit, fish, anything i like (no dressing, just oil)
big plate of vegetables, little bit of meat, with pasta or bread on the side

20:30
bit of cheese or handful of nuts

i drink 3 liters of fluid during the day, mostly water or tea.
no potatoes, no extra sugar.

total calorie intake is 1300-1600 kcal depending on the kind of dinner i eat. i can even hit mcD's one day a week and still lose weight! YAY!

i lost 4 kg in 4 weeks, now i'm eating a little bit less to make sure i get a steady weight.. not the yo-yo idea. next month i'm going to do the same trick.

i love this diet because i can stuff myself. if i want to stop losing weight, all i have to do is eat less and it all turns back to normal. no rumbling stomach!

I doubt that your ass is huge! But this plan sounds reasonable. And slow and steady weightloss is smart! Great that you've lost 4kg already...

I don't eat a lot of bread...if I eat a piece of bread in a week, it's a lot! So this sounds like a lot of bread to me.

We can encourage each other, Frieda!
