"The Straw That Broke This Camel's Back"
Posted 17 November 2008 - 06:04 PM
I gained 10 dating my finace...then another 10 in cancer weight (he has it...trying to get him to eat...you eat...not good)! Well, heck the dog gained 8 too during that time...so it isn't hard to gain weight!
I am trying to get 20 off by April...but it is freakin' hard!
PLease don't let it get you down! I think the fact that he makes you feel so comfortable with yourself that it is awesome! However, my mom lost a ton from cutting down on cheese and eating items with less than 10% saturated fat...and that is my new method...oh and walking!
Good Luck! You can do this...we have been there or are there!

I just started walking my dog (usually 15-20 mins twice a day) and cutting back on my portions (and carbs!). Instead of having a sandwhich and a huge honkin salad I'll have an open faced sandwich (one slice of bread) and half a salad, or a cup of soup. You'll be surprised with what effect it has! It's not a quick process by any means, but it works!

I lost 25 pounds on WW, so I know it can be done! I have another 5 to go for the wedding since I will be in a bikini in front of family & friends. Tracking is great...and it teaches you to pay attention to how much you consume!

Not fun. I still have the jeans I wore on our first date. They were KIDS SIZE!!!!! I will get back into them one day! LOL
Easy fixes are to cut out excess carbs and sugar. Quit drinking sodas and juice and try to just drink water. Watch how much salt and alcohol you take in because it makes you bloated.
I use Free Diet Plans at SparkPeople a FREE online weight loss site. It has amazing food calculators, fitness trackers, articles, meal plans/grocery lists etc.
I've lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks just by keeping track of my foods. If I know I have to write it down, I'm less likely to eat the 400 calorie slice of chocolate cake.
Try to sneak in exercise any way you can. Park farther away from your building, take the stairs, suck your stomach in, and be more active on the weekends.
I know it's hard, but you can do it! Good luck!

I signed up for the WW Online.. so we will see how that goes!
Just taking control of it and knowing that I am not the only one; makes me feel so much better...
