Since Feb 05 I've lost 87 lbs. I still have 20-30 to go to get to my goal. I have discovered that rewarding myself with premium denim keeps me motivated

how did you lose the weight Keri? i am basically starting at the weight you were last year and i have been at this weight for months. i like to see results, but it seems like after a week of working out/eating healthy i dont lose any more weight than if i had eaten what i wanted/not worked out so i get discouraged and dont think i am doing it right.

You might try recording what you are eating and the portions, and upping your exercise as soon as whatever you're doing becomes easy, if you haven't already.

And, drink tons of water, it really helps.

Jetta, I'm sure if my way was the healthiest. I ate egs fro breakfast, and salad the rest of the day. And worked out like crazy, drank only water, and monitored my calories. Every day I could have one "treat" which for me was a serving of reduced calorie something sweet, or 1/2 seving something salty. Or one half a can of soda.

Keri ~ I am impressed with your dedication and will power! I would love to be able to be that disciplined!

I am looking forward to having online support from others trying to loose/maintain weight and live a healthy lifestyle!

If anyone wants to lose healthy and fast, I can recommend "Eat to Live" by Fuhrman. You can find recipes here: http://www.vegsource.com/talk/eat2live/
It's hard in the beginning, but you can eat as much as you want.

I'm following Weight Watchers on my own, I don't go to the meetings or anything. It's worked great for me so far but I had a lot to lose.

This is a great way to keep track of calories/fat, etc. They have a huge database of different foods incl. restaurant/prepackaged food. I was keeping track before i started studying for finals, need to start keeping track again.

I was around 200 when I was 18, now I'm almost 21 and I'm 153. I think I need to lose ~10lbs of fat, and gain ~15 of muscle mass.

haha that is too funny!


But seriously, I lost 17 lbs (from 130 to 113) in four months on weight watchers. It seriously does work and you can still eat the things you like in moderation. I went from a 29/28 to a 27/26 and I am soooo happy! I wish everyone who wants to lose weight the best of luck- you can do it!

I like this idea. I'm trying to exercise and get more in shape/toned, maybe lose 5-8 pounds but that's not my main goal. Does anyone have any tips on workout and such - with the goal of trying to get rid of typical "flab" areas, i.e. under arms, tummy, hips, thighs?

www.nutridiary.com and www.mypyramidtracker.com are also ways that I keep track of what I eat.

I think the best way to firm up the flab areas is.....jogging and jump rope. Really cardio is the best way to tighen up. Good job to everyone

i am adding up my points for the first time today and i am realizing how many "points" i am consuming on a daily basis. all i've had to eat so far is a bowl of kashi go lean cereal, cheese quisidillas (made w/ olive oil), 9 tortilla chips and salsa, and a 100% all natural strawberry & watermelon carbonated juice and i am already 5 points over my daily total! i know it will be a challenge, but i think it will teach me to make 1/2 as much and drink water instead.
that restaurant website is very helpful...i cant believe the buffalo chicken wings w/ blue cheese dressing is 45.5 points just to think, my bf will eat that as an appetizer, then eat a huge meal on top of that & my leftovers. i really wish he would do the WW thing with me, but whenever i point out that he is eating 4 servings of something he starts going on about how it is b.s. that anyone could consider that small amount to be a serving.
congrats to the 17 pound loss kelly - hopefully i will get there soon!
