Fat Loss: 1363 Calories/day

Extreme Fat Loss: 1023 Calories/day

Yeah, that is a lot better. I wouldn't pay attention to the extreme fat loss one either. Cutting 700 calories is way too much. Also, they really should say "weight loss" not "fat loss". I think it's a good tool though. People usually think they shouldn't eat so many calories when they diet so they cut back too far. It helps to see you don't have to be drastic. It's better to find something you can stick with for life & still be happy.

I get around 1080 for extreme weight loss, and it's accurate. That's about all I can eat to lose any weight. I probably only eat around 1500 right now, and I either maintain or gain at that number. My body & metabolism SUCK.

Do you lift weights? Increasing muscle really boosts your metabolism.

I do- I have a weight bench at home, and I belong to a gym. I used to lift 3x a week. The problem is that I have one of those body types that really bulks up. I have to be careful not to lift too much.

 

I was doing really well before the wedding. I lost quite a bit of weight, and was working out almost every day. Well, falling off the wagon is never pretty and I've been doing really really bad lately. So, I need to get back in the gym- it does help!

You've probably done this all before, but have you tried lighter weight more reps/sets? I also have a lot of exercises with no weights that are still really intense.

Hey ladies! I started tracking calories in a journal back in February and have so far lost 12 pounds! I have about another 5 to go until I will be to my ideal weight! It really is this simple, if you take in less calories than you expend, you will lose weight! Another great tool I have been using is Free Diet Plans at SparkPeople It will also tell you how many calories to take in to meet your goal weight by your target date, PLUS you can track all your food intake and calories with their HUGE food database, and track calories burned through cardio, record weight workouts, etc. It's awesome and it's freeeee!!! cheesy.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
