    It's so f'ed up right?!!!!!!!!!!!   I'm 30 years old, and when I was in my 20's I'd diet for a week and loose 10 pounds!  Ohh the joy of getting old!

    I can totally relate! I didn't even have to exercise in my 20's, just eat well and the weight would just melt off. Now, dieting and exercising doesn't seem to cut it. I workout so hard and the weight won't budge, except in gaining weight. Sheesh!!

      Well ladies i cheated on wednesday by eating a piece of cake while on the south beach diet, where it's prohibited, I continued to follow the diet although I felt crappy for letting will power get the best me. I started the diet on Monday and decided to weigh myself today. Today is my 5th day on the diet. Guess what???? I LOST 4 LBS!!!  Very exciting!!! I made a promise to myself that I will follow through with the diet the way I should and not give in to temptation. I will definitely keep some sugar free snacks on hand for whenever I crave sweets. Thanks DeAngelis2be for the recommendation.

        I had tried weight watchers in the past....

         

        And it did work.....

         

        But now I am consumed with counting calories, and I know you cant that on weight watchers......atleast that is not the basis anyway.

         

        Well I last another pound, making it 4 pounds in a month........so i guess gradually i am getting there,,,,,,.....i guess i will just have to work super hard.

         

        I just cant do the crash diets......if i cut out carbs i would die........LOL

         

        But.................I did really like weight watchers when I went that route too.......

        today i hope is a better day.;

         

        i dont have tooo much stress, my job and homelife are pretty stable........no worries there really

         

        i am just a stressful person to begin with.........ii stress over the weather..............LOL

         

        So anywayz, i decided to make a purchase.

         

        last nite I bought the Body Bugg, the one they use of the biggest loser........

         

        its a lil pricey but I will know calories in and calories out......

         

        i bought the Body Bugg SP which links to your smartphone and I can see exactly what my body is doing......

         

        Steps i have taken calories burned.......i am so excited.........maybe i am not burning as many calories as i think

         

        It certainly couldnt HURT......

         

        it says you should be at a 500 calorie deficit daily.......so now i will be able to do that.........

         

        OH, you will also be able to see a daily chart on how much you burn all day long........one girl said she burns one calorie a minute in her sleep./..seems like a lot huh??? I guess its that "breathing" thing we all do......LOL

         

        thanks everyone for all your comments, it means alot to me..........i come on here everyday and check in...

         

        I will be letting you know how well the BUGG works.........i cant waait............

          Diamond girl I am so proud of you.......that is fantastic news, and certainly enough to keep you going..i think if you see rewards from all your hard work you are def. more willing to stick to it.........way to go!!!

           

          Keep it up.......and dont be so hard on yourself about the cake, we are all human on here and you cant deprive yourself of everything all the time.....u will have those moments, it is part of life.......people will have cake from time to time......i tend to think its the AMOUNT of cake you ate and if you didnt make a complete PIG of yourself its OK>>>>>>>>>>>lol...  4 pounds in 5 days...........you cant complain....NICE

            http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

             

            OK, for FAT LOSS it tells me about 1550 cal per day

             

            Extreme LOSS is approx 1100 cal per day.

             

            I average between those two amounts daily, do i am good.......

             

            Like I said i ordered the BodyBugg from 24/7 Fitness and it comes on Wed. cant wait to see how many calories i THINK i burn and how many I actually Burn.

             

            Can you give any advice on fat burning foods..........

             

            I am meds sensitive so I dont take anything to boost my metabolism, I am 40 yrs old.....well will be on April 3rd .......so i guess i should hold onto 39 for as long as I can........LOL

             

            So many of my friends take crazy stuff like ADIPEX, a diet drug....and other crazy diet drugs, i cant do it cuz my anxiety will go thru the roof...

             

            Maybe my choice of foods that accumulate to those calories are wrong choices.........Hmmmm??

             

            I have oatmeal in morning with a tbs of honey and fruit and a hard boiled egg, white only........or some multigrain cheerios with fruit and milk.

             

            Lunch is usually a chix salad with some cukes and red peppers and a Subway Turkey on Wheat with Veggies

             

            Dinner is well you never know.........i have twin boys who are 15 years old and can EAT and EAT and EAT....and SKINNYYYYYY.,,,, so i will usally make them something and i luv

             

            Mahi fish and Ahi Tuna and lots of veggies....CHICKEN a fav of course!!

             

            I like having cereal for a snack of sugar free pudding.......

             

            Also after the gym I drink a 30Gprotein drink that is only 1g of sugar and 1g of fat to help restore my muscle after workouts OH and 160 calories.

             

            Anyone else drink anything after their workouts??

            I'm a registered dietitian, and just popped in to read a bit through these. I wanted to recommend a great tool for those of you unsure of how many calories you should be eating per day... http://www.freedieti..._calculator.htm

             

            That calculator will help you to determine how many calories your body needs, and how many to take in if you want to lose weight. Also, I want to second the suggestion for Weight Watchers. Crazy as it may seem given that I'm a dietitian, but we actually always send people to Weight Watchers! The results that WW gets can't be denied. It's that combination of accountability and support that the group offers by meeting in person weekly, and the point system is much easier to track than calories for most people.

             

            Also, don't worry so much about the numbers on the scale as you do about your measurements, if you have a lower body weight (like the woman who is 135). Your body is just converting your fat into muscle, which actually weighs more. If you really want to see the numbers coming off though, do interval workouts or try spinning. Just running at a consistent pace for 30 minutes won't burn as much as rotating between jogs, sprints, walks, etc.

             

            Keep up the good work all of you!! I loved seeing the results, you guys are awesome:)

                      This is a great thread i am desperately trying to lose some more pounds but am running out of time very quickly! I have 8 weeks on Monday until my wedding day and am still wanting to drop at least 5 k.g so about 11 pounds i try and go to the gym twice a week and do the treadmill once a week at home but the weight is not shifting as quickly as i would like! Have cut out all carbs at night but it is the picking that i am bad at as I am a nanny to 3 children and am constantly around food!
