Losing 100+ pounds

FabHen 01-17-2014 07:08 PM

The problem you face when trying to lose weight is your “resistance” or “insensitivity” to Leptin’s signal to burn fat which is basically like having your body’s fat burning switch set to OFF.

Aanother problem you face is the rapid drop in your leptin levels when you diet which slows down your metabolism substantially and leads to frustrating weight loss plateaus and massive rebound weight gain.

Not Fun!

here is a solution to turn the tables on your genetics by reseting the way your body utilizes letpin to permanently turn your fat burning switch all the way on. 01-23-2014 10:46 PM

Fit to fat to fat to fit.

Weightloss at an all time low with little to no workouts. Everything is spiratic and the weather is crazy. I am a mess in getting this tight and right.
Please I am hoping to get a long time success very soon. 01-23-2014 10:48 PM

My genetics are good. No one in my family is overweight except for gluttony and pathetic habits. I am falling in to that class in an attempt to avoid it. If that makes sense to you.

Good afternoon all,

This is my first time using Fitday and I have to say my first time really getting serious about my needs in general and weight loss. I started this journey on 1.1.14 at 235.4 pounds and as of today I weight 226.2. My long term goal is to be between 136 - 169 pounds by 1.1.15.

Welcome NewerBetty :) My advice to you (if you want it that is ;) ) is to set small monthly goals for the coming year. From personal experience, when I focus too much on the end long term goal, I feel frustrated. This time around, I've set short term monthly goals to focus and it's really helped me! Like Cassie said, come and join us in the Motivational Forum! It can be very helpful to have people to check in with while on this journey.

Thanks everyone for the support and tips. I don't get on line much, I'm at the mid point of an MBA program and I have a 11 month old at home. So my goal is to get here at least once a week. I have found that my barriers to weight loss are my age, having children later in life (son 31, son 24, daughter 11 mos) and type II diabetic.

Starting Weight - 235.4 (1/1/14)
Current Weight - 225.8 (1/28/14)
Goal Weight Range 136 - 169 (1/1/15)

Good morning all,

I just weighted in and I have not lost anything this week. But, on the bright side I didn't gain any either. I have increased my workouts to 60 mins per day and my goal this month is to lose 4-8 pounds.

Height 5'9"
Starting Weight - 235.8 (1/1/14)
Current Weight - 225.8 (2/4/14)
Goal Weight Range 136-169 (1/15/15)

Hi Betty I read somewhere that the first step in taking control of your diet was to stop the gaining. I find that when I go for a week without losing I often lose more than expected the next week. Keep up the good work.
