That is a lot of calories, MissesJai.


Does anyone have advice on how to stop self soothing with food? This is my downfall.

Even when I eat healthy snacks, if it's a bad day....I eat way too much.

A friend of mine introduced me to a website called marksdailyapple.com. As with every fitness thing out there I thought it was crap. A year later I can safely say it changed my life. He also has a book called the primal blueprint which I highly recommend. I guess what I am trying to say is to be effective it's more about what you eat as opposed to how much you exercise. Excessive exercise has its drawbacks as well bc it puts wear and tear on the body. What the book promotes is not a diet, but a lifestyle. If you want to lose weight you don't diet for a month to make up for years of neglect. Good Luck to you all and happy new year and a new you

Hi everyone!
I like the books by Ellington Darden. I agree with newstart09 that it is more about food and less about exercise, though I am definitely working on both.

Darden says that to break old habits and develop a new lifestyle, it takes 100 days. If you "fall off the wagon," it starts the 100 days all over again. He says to never eat a meal over 300 calories, three meals a day, with two snacks (100-150 calories). Lots of water/fluids, and 1/2 gram of protein for every pound of body weight (quite a lot, actually).

I use whey protein for lunch to ramp up my protein intake. The pre-packaged snack foods help keep portion control in check. I have worked on reprogramming my thinking about food, eat to live, instead of live to eat. Is food going to make me happy? Of course not. No fast food (except Subway).

Good luck all!

I am still working my new year healthy lifestyle. I only have 3 pounds to reach my goal

I eat low carb, low fat, high protein about 1100 calories a day. I exercise 5-6 days a week for an hour.

I feel so much better and less lethargic than when I had let unhealthy habits back in

Having bounced a bit up from my earlier lows I started working out again, but I was really finding that last bit of loss was taking forever.

I dont want to be bulky, but I would really like to get back some muscle definition.

As part of this new plan I decided to stop drinking my diet drinks. Just water and sometimes juice. I thought losing the caffine addiction before was bad. Kicking the artificial sweetner/caffine addiction is damn near killing me.

yeah it is. That's why I do it 5 days a week now. I swim one day a week and hike the other. I did a 3 mile hike this past Sunday and burned 1255 calories!

How to stop emotional eating? Hmmmm...Find other outlets to soothe yourself. Go for a walk, hit the gym and release some endorphins.

I'm also curious to hear about the detox/cleansing

I have done several detox/cleanses: liver, colon, parasite, juice cleanse, fasting, supplements,and so on.

I have found that ingesting bentonite clay to be the gentlest, easiest, simplest form of detox.

Hi all,

How is every one doing?

I haven't lost any weight yet, but went to my doctor for my thyroid check and it is all unbalanced again. I imagine stress and everything else has messed it up. That explains so many other things going odd medically lately. I am working to get the thyroid back in sync and just making healthy changes for the time but not going to worry about it for now.

woot! I did it. Made myself get back on the machine o' death today. That'd be the elliptical machine that mocks me every time I walk past it, and tries to kill me when I do use it. yeah, I'm incredibly out of shape. not that I didn't know it already, but the huffin' and puffin' made it all the more obvious.

My goals for this week - exercise at least 3 more times, drink plenty of water, and keep eating healthy.

Way to go, Inconnu!

I did the treadmill for 7minutes on Friday and 12minutes today. I'm on a mission.

Missions are good. My current mission is to fit back into my jeans without this big ol' muffin top hanging over the waistband.

great job inconnu & jo2love! I've been off program for like a month now. but I'm back on - Zumba Toning today @ 730 and very low carb eating until further notice. I posted my workout schedule on my cubicle wall at work again - I had taken it down because I moved spaces and I think not having that visual cue impacted me. So, it's back up and I'm ready. Let's get moving everyone!

I lost 2 lbs.

Inconnu - I am with you. I have been refusing to buy jeans in a bigger size. Wearing my normal size is an awesome reminder to get my muffin on the treadmill.

I am fortunate that I've always been a healthy person, well physically wise. Healthy mentally wise, that will need to be seen for me. I am not looking forward to the challenge.

resurrecting the thread - I'm finally in a more serious mindset to get back on track with the exercise.

I'm back to tracking my diet and exercise on myfitnesspal.com and this time I'm adding friends there so I'll be more accountable.

I even signed up for a National Bike Challenge at http://www.endomondo.com/campaign/national tonight. It's really just an online tracking of miles ridden. I got my bike down the weekend before last and I want to get back to riding. It's been more than a couple of years since I did any "serious" riding, and well, it's one of those reclaiming hurdles I'm ready to do now.

disclaimer - my definition of serious riding is not the same as a real serious bike rider's definition. I'm not talking training for a century here.

I was looking for this thread. I had lost 60+ lbs on the infidelity diet and kept it off for two years. Then my doc put me on some meds to try and handle the depression through changing my monthly cycle. My weight shot up in the first six weeks (and the meds didn't work). Over the next two years I packed nearly all of the weight back on.

I tried WW, which had worked before. It not this time. I tried HCG, I tried just eating healthy and working out. Probably more too It was like I had a block to getting below a certain weight.

MrH and I ended up on Medifast right before Thanksgiving. I've lost 42 lbs. I keep going off plan the closer I get to my post-ID weight so I'm working on that. I'm ten pounds away from that good weight and 20 from my goal. I work out shorter periods but more often. I can see a change in being toned this time instead of being just thinner. In fact, I think I'm the same size as before (the old clothes seem to testify to that since most of them fit) but the weight is higher and I'm guessing that's muscle.

I do three workout apps. One for legs, arms and abs. Then some treadmill and elliptical time. And whatever other activities I can fit in. It feels good to not get as tired as I used to.

I keep track of my food on Sparkpeople and I have a Take Shape for Life coach. I also became a coach- partly because it keeps me accountable. I can't face my clients and say "I gave up".

I've heard good things about Medi-fast. Someone else here at SI used it - one of the menz, he used to post about it in NB, I think.

I'm sitting here trying to motivate myself to change clothes and get on the elliptical machine tonight. I know if I change right when I get home from work, I'm much more likely to work out. But tonight I ended up having to clean the kitchen before I could make dinner, and I had to eat before I could think about working out....

yeah, yeah, I know. excuses, excuses... no, really. it's a pep talk. really. if I whine enough here, I'll embarrass myself into exercising.

So did you work out? I avoid it too and it's stupid because we have all sorts of equipment in the basement. I have been using some apps I found and I'm feeling good that I'm getting toned as well as slimmer.

MrH and I got on this diet after seeing quite a few people do really well- it was convincing. My coach has MS and losing the weight has given her energy and helped her move more, which is good for her condition.

I've been on a plateau but recently recommitted. My coach and I discussed my food issues that go back to FOO and even my M. There were many times I was deprived of food as a punishment. When I was a kid my mom kept me locked in my room so much I ended up eating toothpaste from the bathroom. And that was the start of it. I feel like the food will be gone if I don't eat it.

Additionally, I think that being near the weight I was after the ID is really triggering me, so I have to deal with that.

That's why I like the program. It's not just the Medifast, but a good coach will help you work through your food hang ups, what brought you to being overweight.

yep, I did work out on Thursday night. I blew off last night, though. I haven't been all that motivated today either, for that matter.
