So I have managed to break my ankle in 3 places!! This has really slowed down my weight loss. I have only managed -2lbs since my last post 3 weeks ago!. I am really annoyed at the timing of this. I am still sticking to my diet and have reduced my intake to 1200 calories as I cannot move about at all at the moment and still only getting -2lbs is really demotivating. Hopefully next weigh-in will see big improvements :-(
Hi, everyone. It's encouraging to read about the success so many of you are having! I started back in February and went strong for about 6 months. I lost 50 lbs! But then due to some circumstances that would probably bore you I really fell off track. I stopped eating right, logging, weighing, measuring, etc. and gained 11 lbs back over the next 2 months. Since I restarted last week I have re-lost 2.6 lbs. So I'm back at it, and I need to lose a total of about 140 lbs. It seems so daunting! I try to tackle it in small mini goals, like so many of you also do. It makes things seem much more attainable when you look at smaller numbers. Right now I'm focusing on re-losing the rest of that 11 lbs I gained. I also joined the women's weekly motivational thread, which has really helped. I am following the diet recommended by the American Diabetes Association and my nutritionist, and it seems to be really working for me.
Again, congrats to you who have already lost so much...keep going! You're such an inspiration!

You can read up on this at LINK REMOVED. There are three articles there to show you what I mean and how this can aid in weight loss. Not only weight loss, but help you keep it off much more effortlessly because you loose the cravings. Your body needs to be at the right chemistry for it to function normally. This helped me. As soon as I stop I start craving or feeling weird and not normal and free. Hope you enjoy reading and LOL.
This is my first day on Fitday, I am looking for articles and your experience to help me see a different perspective.I need to lose well over 100 lbs I am 340lbs now. Since I have osteoporosis so bad any exercise will be difficult at first.I already tracked my calories for today.
Can you tell me what eating plan you followed? Did you go by calories,carbs or lowfat,no fat or sugars? My experience with Atkins was good I had lost over 60lbs until I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer resulting in a total hysterectomy and the weight I lost plus more has piled on.I could do nothing for over a year,I live in pain,fibromyalgia and now malignant melanoma. Despite all my challenges I still want to lose this weight and its not want to- its need to,my blood pressure is off the charts and if I dont lose it I will either die from a heart attack of eventually of cancer but I need to do this and looking for encouragement to not give up.
