Counting calories works for me. When I did weight watchers I was starving. Found out I was not eating enough caloires.

I do my own thing after years of reading books: Bob Greene's series, Fit for Life, Atkins etc. I think I'm probably doing something similar to the Zone. Mine is low cal, low carb, low fat, almost no dairy and only chicken, fish or tofu with a steak very rarely. I drink almond milk and do whey protein shakes but my favorite is steel cut oatmeal porridge with protein powder and walnuts. At age 50 and female, our bodies really love to hang on to FAT, so my eating regime is pretty strict. I should be lifting weights ... soon, very soon

That sounds pretty much like my diet regime.
BTW I highly recommend weight lifting. Increasing muscle mass has really helped me stay trim even when my diet ain't so good

I found the only diet plan that worked for me was weight watchers. Mostly because it forced me to look at what I was eating. Once I stopped watching though the weight came rushing back.

If I could teach myself to watch the food without thinking about it I may have more success.

I agree 100% - several years ago I lifted and was very happy with the results. I have no excuse since I have a gym in my apartment building and own 3 pound weights and could do it in front of my t.v. Jogging and lifting weights are two things on my "to do" list. Thanks for the support!

On July 31, 2004, I weighed 160 lbs. By January 2005, I weighed 120 lbs. I lost 40 lbs on my eating plan! No gimmicks or tricks, it's cheap (you buy your own foods at the grocery store) and it works very well.

If anyone is interested in getting a copy let me know, I will share it with anyone. So far, out of the 3 friends who have tried it, one stuck to it and lost her baby weight in 4 months, the other started it but got pregnant and had to quit, and the 3rd is starting it now. My pregnant friend is going to start it as soon as she has her baby!
I've noticed that most of the peopel who have posted on this thread have asked for this "secret diet plan"... Have any of you noticed that the person who dangled this carrot only has 2 posts on this site, and that the last time the account was active was the day of this origional post .

That's right ladies and gentelmen... This poster hasn't even logged on to her account since January 5, 2010 . I would recomend that everyone write this carrot off as a lost cause

Just a thought

Weight on 6/20/12 = 245.2 / BMI @ 38.4
Current Weight = 187.4 / BMI @ 29.35
Pounds Lost = 57.8 / BMI - 9.05

12/25/13 Goal = 175 / BMI @ 27.41
Pounds to go = 12.4

Inches lost= 26.5

Goal Weight = 150 / BMI @ 23.49
Pounds to go = 37.4


What I've learned along the way:

Just because no one sees it, doesn't mean it doesn't count

If at first you don't succeed... try, try again

I chose to go without a car three years ago, which is a huge lifestyle change and means I walk literally everywhere. Yesterday I walked 15K. When the time is right, I will mix things up, but I feel pretty happy with losing 30 pounds and will keep walking and maintaining my healthy eating plan.

I read someone else's post that said the original poster hasn't been on this thread since 2010
