    Default Sizes


    I am going to take your advise and use it. I am really trying to lose weight and we both started out at the same size 190. If I could get to 150, I would be too sexy. LOL

    I was wondering what size clothes did you start out wearing and what size do you wear now. That is a motivator.

    I used to be a 200 lb smoker.....quit smoking and went down to 120 lbs....but it took me a yr. Find excercise you love, walk or bike doing errands, and we all know what we should and shouldn't eat, instead of making excuses tough it out for 1 month only. By then the habit is formed. Tell yourself it's just for a month only. My weakness used to be ice cream, so I replaced it with low fat, low sugar frozen yogurt. After a month I had a bite of real ice cream and it was so gross!! All I could taste was the fat!
    Good luck! I kept it off for 13 yrs now....plus had 2 children and went to my pre prego weight by choosing healthy. The ironic thing is now that I'm almost 40 I'm struggling with peri-menopause and gained 15 lbs. I still lead a very active lifestyle running and working out with other cardio and weights, and still can't lose these bloody 15 lbs!! I now struggle with too many periods, hot and cold spells, depression spells and feeling PMS alot due to this peri menopause.Any one have any ideas???

    This diet plan has quite a few upsides:
    -eating non processed foods can help decrease cellulite
    -not eating meat (acc. American Heart Assoc.) leads to cardio health
    -the extra fiber and the raw fruits/veggies causes your body to do extra work in processing them (burning calories as you digest!)

    Coming from personal experience eating all this natural food will lead to a healthy metabolism, meaning you will eat all the time, have more natural energy and on top of that you feel really good about yourself. Eating a strict natural diet gives you more control over your life and more energy, which makes you feel motivated to go for a jog etc.

    iamwomen, thanks for the info. this is just want i was looking for.
    about 4 years ago i was successful in my weight loss of 30 lbs. i've since gone through a divorce and made some major life changes. i also have a new "man" friend.
    not all good news....it's been several months since i've been on a scale and really not paying attention to my eating and exercising. yesterday i went out and bought a scale (left mine for the miserable man i left) and was VERY surprised at what i saw. i knew i gained some weight back but WOW...it all came back! so i am looking to start over.
    any help or advice would be appreciated. i am going to the store tonight to start on that new healther food purchase. i'm going to use your post as a guide. i did it before i know i can do it again.
    just for the record...i'm 5'5" and now 187lbs........I'M SO UPSET WITH MYSELF!!!!
    thanks for listening!

    i had gone through the same ... I mean I usually over eat when I am depressed .... came to a point that I had weighed the most at 78KG ... after my pity party I finally decided to regain my life. I enrolled myself into a gym and attended RMP classes (indoor cycling, some call it spinning), it has proven to be the most effective & fastest fat burner for me. Within 6 months I lost almost 15kg, and was in my healthiest! I would usually attend 3 or max 4 times a week, but of course I have REDUCED (still eat some time to time) sweets, cant resist! and had to learn to eat more fruits & veggies.

    U might want to try RPM, its a great energy booster as well, the adrenaline rush you feel after is just super

    all the best

    iamwoman,
    I just joined the club and am extremely inspired by your posting. I weigh 285lbs. I gained this weight over the course of 25-26 years. When I met my boyfriend who eventually became my husband, I stopped running, exercising, and basicly lost myself. I became what and who he wanted. I was outgoing and active, he is a stay at home. So this is what I became. I still have him but must get rid of the weight. Whe we met, I weighted 130-140, now I'm 145-155 lbs heavier. I have diabetes, high chlosterol, hypertension, hyperthyroidism, etc, etc. I am going to try your plan. However, I know when I start working out, he is going to get jealous. Any suggestions?
