Hi everyone. I'm new.

I'm looking for a diet buddy. I'm looking for a girl near the same height and weight as me.

I am 5'2" and weigh 200 lbs.

I want to do diet and exercise with my buddy so that we can compare results.

Hey everyone, im new here. I'm hoping to lose 40 pounds by mid-August. Ive already lost 30 (50 in total) but Im starting to lose motivation fast. Im going to be doing a Water/fruit/veggies only fast for the rest of this month. So in other words drinking tons of water everyday plus an orange, or apple, or carrot, or one thing of my choice. So what im looking for is any girls or guys that want to join me, so we can motivate eachother, give eachother tips, and compete with eachother (in a good way). Anyways I figure if we all help eachother out, we could all easily lose 30 pounds (or however much you want to lose) by August, or whatever month you are thinking of. As for me, I am so busy with school and work that I cant get to the gym till schools out, but fuck it I can still do sit ups and what not at home. so Anyways, yeah, leave me your AIM or AOL screen name and I will add you to my buddy list and whatever suggestions you have, And we can all start getting thin.... the more the better! Everyone is welcome, no matter how fat or how thin you are, even though all of you will say you are fat (haha). So come on people, i need your help. <3 p.s. Sorry for cross posting

Hmmm......am trying to get back on track with a wiser, healthier food choices.
This time last year I managed to lose some 20lbs in 4 months and due to uber stresfull months that followed gain it all back.And more.
So out of pure boredom am composing a list of foods I do not eat.
List 1--food I avoid cuz I've never been too keen on it
List 2-food I try to avoid for it is bad for me
(bad for me as in I can't eat one pice but devour the whole box)
List 3-food I eat on daily basis
List 4-random stuff

list1
sugar
soda
mayo
peanut butter
white rice
french fries
salt
and meat obviously being a vegetarian for years and years
list2
chips
croissants
chocolate
cookies
junk in general

list3
fruit
(always fruit for breakfast........actually nothing else but fruit till noon)
yogurt
afternoon snack
dried fruit
nuts--almonds, cashews...
mushrooms
soy
lentil
broccoli
brussel sprouts
carrot
oatflakes
pumpkin seeds
rye bread
feta cheese--well not on daily basis, but let's say twice a week.....my favourite sin
honey

list4
gomasio instead of salt
fruit for breakfast
low fat dairy
trying to include more protein into my lunch
(cashews, mushrooms, lentil, soy, tofu.....)
will probably switch to soy milk
2l of water
plus herbal teas galore

So far so good.........as a matter of fact am more than pleased......
I don't feel as lacking anything.......I don't crave anything in particular.....and I don't feel hungry...
As for my cardio I used to do aerobics three times a week, but stopped and decided to take flamenco classes instead...plus yoga twice a week.
Only constant cardio I get is my walk to and from work 5 times a week.......

Am aiming to get back to my ideal weight......around 8kg......hopefully another three months and I'll be the perfect 10 again.

Any tips?

so far not too bad...i did end up snacking once last night...but does a handful of craisins on my way to a meeting count...I don't think it was even the full serving size...oh well...

anywho...today today...what a day. we start our sorority recruitment stuff tonight...thus meaning the start of hell week. we have something every night that starts somewhere around 7:00 and doesn't end until midnight...sometimes later!

anywho...
lunch: not much to choose from in the cafeteria today. for some reason, the cafeteria people feel the need to have carbohydrate filled lunches, no matter where you turn...so i hate about 1/3 of a calzone...i didn't even really want to eat it at all..but it was the best thing they had...i cut it in half at first and tossed the other half so i wouldn't eat it all..and i left a little piece on my plate when i decided i was already sick of eating it...and i had a small salad with a tablespoon of ranch dressing...

dinner: the caf is having salmon..which i'm quite fond of..and i'm super pumped..i just hope it tastes good! if not, i'll just have a small chicken salad...no fries...

i feel good today after a good day yesterday. we worked out in the fitness center (which isn't the greatest of fitness centers really...) and i did 15 minutes on the rowing machine and 15 minutes on the stepper. i did a few leg exercises on the weight machines but i didn't want to over do it on my first day...i probably wouldn't have been able to walk today :P

okie...busy night ahead..gonna head to the gym as soon as i finish my spanish homework..woo!

hope everyone's having a good day!

Subject:a new semester, a new me :)
Posted by:leahistrying.
Time:2:02 pm.
Mood:determined.
well...today was the first day of classes..and i'm starting this weight loss thing again. last semester i managed to lose about 10 pounds. i went from 170 down to about 160-161...

and now this semester i would like to double that.

current weight - 160
goal weight - 140 by April 1, 2003

so...we'll see...just being able to deny myself the things that are so bad for me will be difficult. not ordering pizza on 2.99 pizza nights...not doing late night runs for food...and just incessant snacking when i'm doing nothing else.

so far so good..
lunch - small chicken salad with 1 Tbsp. Ranch dressing.

3:00 - time for the gym...

dinner - see..now that's difficult. the cafeteria is having pasta and something really gross...so i'll probably eat a little bit of pasta...(very little) and a salad...but i won't cheat..i won't over eat..and hopefully i'll be preoccupied for the remainder of the evening to not snack...

i'll update again tomorrow with my next food stats...and i plan to weigh in about once a week...on a saturday when i'm home and have a decent scale to step on.

i looked up 'weight loss' as an interest, and there were so many different communities. i almost cried. there is so much support. this is cross-posted. i've joined i think 7 or 8 other communities.
today marked the day of my 6th week. every thursday i weight and measure myself. so, this being my first entry ever in this community, i will post my weight and measurements in the beginning, and then from today.
once a week [every thursday] i will post my new stats.
this is extremely difficult for me, so if you have anything negative to say...please keep it to yourself.
week one
arms: 12"
bust: 42"
waist: 44"
hips: 43.5"
thighs: 25"
calves: 15.5"
weight: between 195 and 200

week six
arms: 11.5"
bust: 39.5"
waist: 42"
hips: 41"
thighs: 24"
calves: 14"
weight: 180

for exercising i alternate between winsor pilates and kathy smith kickboxing. i eat foods very high in protein, and low in carbs/fat/sugar.
i eat alot of egg whites, and soy based food.
i have 4 boiled eggs a day. in 4 there are 12g of protein, 0g of fat, and 0.8g of carbs.
i also eat promax protein bars.
for those of you that aren't vegetarian, eat chicken breast. in one there is about 15-19g of protein, 0g of fat, and 0g of carbs.

Does anyone know what I can do to stop punishing myself or feeling so guilty and bad for eating junk food?I feel this way because junk food is what is keeping me back from losing weight but it is also causing so many problems like cavities.I've stopped drinking as much soda as I use to and now I drink water instead or Diet soda.The thing though is the solid foods,they are so hard to turn down because I have such a sweet tooth and it makes me feel good and once I start I can't stop so I stop my eating healthy and exercising because of it.Does anyone have any advice so I can be less hard on myself and get over junk food alittle bit easier?

Well last night I made my bf and I dinner of my and his fav of chicken fried steak, homemade smashed pot and gravy, corn and biscuts. Never have I ever not eaten all on my plate. Well last night, I pased myself eating cuse they say it takes about 20 minutes for your body to know it is full. Well I actually didn't finish my food. Thats right folks.

Giving my self that extra time to make sure I am better.

Breakfast: Shake, water
Snack: Bananna, water
Lunch: Shake, lf yogurt, water
Snack: Yogurt, water

I don’t know what to make of this. When I started working out almost 2 weeks ago, I did so mainly because my pants had got way too tight. When I started, I weighed in at 144, in just a towel. Well, today is my weigh is, after starting WW. With clothes on, I tipped the scale at 15o. Now, I know the clothes count for some of it – say 3 pounds? Maybe 5? This means I’ve GAINED a pound, even though my pants don’t feel as tight. What gives?

I had a BAD w/e on WW. Started Friday night when I got a perm. I told them exactly how I wanted my hair to look – they said no problem,. I walked out of there looking like a damn poodle! After that, I ate a whole box (8 servings) of Snackwells Oatmeal cookies. So much for staying within my point range! Saturday I made it within my point range but Sunday, I had breakfast at Denny’s and spent half my point there, then had a grilled chicken sandwich with French fries from McD’s. I did bad again. I am trying today to stay within my range.

We got a new puppy last night. He is an 11 week old Boxer. He has the most adorable face….black markings, all squished up with extra skin. He is going to be a BIG dog. But it gives me an opportunity to take walks around the park instead of always going to the gym.

Dunno what to do about the gained weight. I feel bummed!
