Hi All!! Good Afternoon, Hope everyone is doing well on this Wednesday (Hump) day. Well at least it's the middle of the week. Can any one answer this question for me. Why did my calorie intake from my previous week 1200 a day go to 1644 a day that's an extra 400 calories a day? The only reason I can possibly think of is because of my exercise, working out twice a day. But my theory is "if it's not broke don't fix it" so I'm going to stay at my original calorie intake of 1200 a day. It's working for me and I know my body eating extra calories isn't a good thing and it's not going to help me lose weight, it will make me gain. Need some input on this help??? Hope you all have a great day talk you later on.
Hi All!! Weighed in today and lost 2 pounds. Something is better than nothing at all. At least I lost. I thought that it would have be more but hey, it's just the beginning and I didn't stay the same weight. Just have to keep in check with my portions and calories and keep on exercising twice during the day as I'm doing and it seems to be working!!!! Just have to keep going and not get discouraged!! I have to lose this way no ifs or butt's about it!!! Have a great week!!
Hi All!! Well tomorrow is my first weigh in since I started last week. Looking forward to see how well I did, but also a little nervous. I'd be happy even if I lose one pound. But just have to keep optimistic about all of this and just remember "one day at a time". To accomplish my weight goal it has to done in baby steps, and just keep telling my self "look how long it took me to gain this weight!! Slow and steady win the race!! I hope everyone has a great week and will let you know in how much I've lost and will post tomorrow night!! Wish me Luck!!
I would rather not eat my snacks and fill up more with water which isn't a problem for me. That way I have more calories left towards my meals during the day. My required calories for each day is 1200. It's something that I had to get used to. but I'm doing it now!!! It's much easier now that I'm writing down my foods. It keeps me in check!!! and accountability. I should have done this a long time ago that way I would have never ended up 30 pounds heavier. Well I guess better late then never, and now I'm going to do this and not consider myself again as a failure!! I'm going to be that little engine that "Could"!!! Thank you for listening and this discussion board helps me a lot!! It also helps me see that I'm not the only one with a weight problem!! Have a great weekend, be safe and God Bless talk t you soon. Can't wait until Monday to weight in to see if I lost any weight!!!!
I drink 64 oz of water each day and sometimes more, drinking water is not a problem. My problem is making sure that I write down my foods every day for each meal. But so far I've been doing well with that. I've been exercising every day and maybe twice a day. So all I went to do right now is to keep my mind and body in this state of mind while I'm doing good. I just wanted to know that if I'm not hungry during in between meals do I have to eat my snacks? Because I'm full and satisfied with the amount of food that I'm eating at each meal and I don't get hungry for that snack. Well the truth for me is when I weigh myself this coming Monday. I just to be able to see some kind of results, so I can keep motivated in continuing to do well with this weight loss regime and to do it for the rest of my life so I can feel good about my self and not feel like a failure. Well have a great week and hope to talk to u soon. That's for the encouragement!! Mamasita58View Thread
Well this is my 2ND day on this weight loss regime, it hasn't been bad at all!! I'm really concentrating on writing down all my food intake during the day, and I'm exercising every day!! I'm even reading all the food labels for each food group. I think this is going to work, so it can get me started in the right direction and in the right frame of mind to be able to master my eating habits to a healthier way of life. The real challenge is when I go and weigh myself in a weeks time!! Hoping for the best. I'd be happy if I lose any weight!!!!!! Well going to the gym later on tonight to do laps!!
Good Evening WatchmakesWife!!! Thank you so much for your words of encouragement!!! Also Congratulations on your weight loss of 25 pounds. I wish that I could say the same with my weight process. I would be ecstatic if I even lost 5 pounds so far. How long did it take you to lose 25 pounds? Well at least your in the right state of mind in achieving your weight loss and by goodness your doing it!!! "You Go Girl" And I'm sure everyone is noticing the difference on how nice and thin you look and the complaints are flying all over the place. That alone would make you feel great and that your finally doing it and not a failure like before. That alone is worth it!!! I wish you the best and I hope in time I can get to where you are now!! Oh forgot the most important part!! I started writing down all my foods and keeping my eye on my calories and trying not to go over them. Also I'm hitting the gym hard and committing myself to it. I am determined to beat this weight loss crap and not fail again, and I'm going to have control in what I eat, not the other way around in food having control of me!!! Does that make sense? Well keep up the good work and hope to hear from you soon. It's nice to have some one to express your thoughts and feelings. Thank you for listening, have a great week.
I too am new to this forum. I have 40 pounds to lose, or should I rephrase that to I would like to lose 40 pounds. I would be happy if I even lost 5 pounds of it all ready. You name it I've been on every diet that man has created and been there and back again. As I've gotten older it's been harder to lose. All of my weight gain has been in my upper and middle section and I hate the way I look and feel. I am in my late 50's and I know a lot of it has to do with my menopause, but it seems that what ever I put in my mouth it goes directly to my middle section. It's so amazing that I didn't notice that I was gaining more and more weight as time went on because it must have been coming on slowly that I didn't realize in how heavy I'd become and all of my clothes were no t fitting. I've gotten to the point that I hate trying on any new clothes, I hate looking in the mirror, I hate myself and my imagine and I'm not happy with the person I've become. I know it's has to do with mind over matter and it has to register, but at times it seems so hard because I've gotten to the point that I'm already set up to fail even before I start and that's because I've failed so many other times before so why the hell should this be any different. I feel and see my self already as a big fat failure. I need help and I need to overcome this obsession in order to lose this weight and stop seeing myself as a failure!!! Can anyone help me!! I get so dam depressed!! Mamasita58View Thread
