Hi everyone! Got over the hump and starting to get into the '30's at last! I started on Feb 2 at 142, and lost 5 lbs so far! This site, especially the calorie counting and no lying, is really working-- I appreciate the support of friends as well-- so thank you all!

Starting weight: 142-- 2/02
weight: 137
goal: 125
bust: 36
waist: 28 (!)
hips: 36

Now on to the next five pounds: yeee haa!

Hi all,

I haven't checked in since I first joined this group a few weeks ago. I was at 132 with a goal of 125. I started this effort on January 14 and have only lost between 1-1.5 pounds so far. I guess I have to keep it in perspective - I started to change my eating/exercising lifestyle last March at 152 lbs and as of this January had lost 20 lbs, which equals a little less than 1/2 lb per week.

I feel like I've been doing good - getting at least 30 minutes and sometimes more exercise per day. I've been keeping the calories to between 1200 and 1300 a day. Maybe I need to cut that down - when I lost weight last year, I kept it at around 1100 calories (so hard to do!).

I can relate to the people who feel afraid of what will happen when we reach goal and can up the calories a bit to maintain. I now feel like any mistakes I make go directly to poundage!

Does anyone know what would be a good balance of carbs/protein/fat to shoot for? On my fitday pie chart I average about 50% carbs, 32% fat, and 18% protein - I have no idea what I should be averaging to help my metabolism.
