I'm doing WW right now. Since I'm BFing, it seemed the best, since they accomodate BFing moms. I've done SB in the past with some sucess (before I got pregnant), but didn't think I wanted to start on PhaseII, so I decided to give WW a try.

Just trying to do a healthier lifestyle - no plan,and Other.The other being calorie counting.I'm not actually writing down how many calories I am consuming,but I am adding them up as I make my meals and remember them throughout the day.That way I'm aware of how large or small my portions are.

I have tried the South Beach Diet but it was too restricted. I have just ordered the Bob Green books because it just makes more sense to me that when I need personally is to change the way I think about food, buy food, prepare food, and basically change my current "relationship" to food. My mentallity about food/dieting is what I need to start with (that and some daily walking).

I'm on the *finally figured out what works for Robin plan*. Which is basically counting calories, good calories that is, meaning low fat proteins and tons of veggies. It also includes lots of fiber and mostly, though not exclusively whole foods. It also includes 3 healthy meals and 2 snacks and leaves me some room to nibble throughout the day (something I can't or won't give up). It also allows me the occasional treat which is essential. Whether it be pasta, pizza, sushi, desserts or what have you. Lots of water drinking is involved (as well as frequent trips to the bathroom). Also included is daily exercise and movement. Lots of grocery shopping and planning is essential. The most important component of the "finally figured out what works for Robin plan* is that I finally figured out that HELLOOOO, I DON'T HAVE TO BE FAT. That I most certainly have control over my weight. Not always easy, but most definitely doable. It is 100% within my power. And that it is so very worth the effort. That's my plan - and I'm sticking to it!!!

I'm just trying to eat healthier and watch my portions. I also track the amount of calories, carbs, protein and fat I eat in a day. I have to really watch my carbs b/c I'm a carb-a-holic!

Default I am kind of on my own tweaked plan, too!

I am keeping my carbs low and healthy--oatmeal, sprout bread, veggies. Good fats--nuts, EVOO,
lean proteins
lots of fruits and veggies
I am also watching my calories.

I have increased my activity level but have not formally started exercise yet.

Talking

the Obie Plan

Intuitive Eating-Helps with portion control and emotional eating

Very unofficial calorie counting-helps me realize exactly what I am eating, avoid mistakes like eating a muffin I thought was 200 calories and it is actually 600 (yeah that happened). I might eat it anyway, but I like to know. I have calorieking book marked on my blackberry for when i am out. LOL


Wholefoods/Education-Whenever possible I try and eat the organic version of something, but I refuse to throw out all the stuff I already bought. With the IE I started avoiding oily sauces and eating more fruits and vegetables.I takes me a couple of hours to do my big grocery shopping (and I live alone) I care more about what I am eating. I only drink water. No particular amount, but I have a 32 ounce water bottle that I fill up and I usually drink at lease one of those a day. I do drink soda and juice usually when I am out some where eating and I try to drink the soda/juice after I have finished a glass of water. I also try and drink seltzer with lemon when I am in the mood for something fuzzy, but don't need the sugar.

Excercise at least 3-5 days a week, no specific amount of time. I am a excercise at home person so I can do it in bad weather and I have built up a nice library. Adding in weights. Can't afford a personal trainer, so bought beginner DVDs to get me started.

Accountability/Support-I post on 2 excerise threads which keep me motivated to get out of bed and a few other threads for when I need to work through some issues on the scale or food or whatever.

Goals other than the scale.

Not sure what to call this, but I only eat out 2 days a week. It could eat out the other days, but these are the days I don't cook or pack a lunch to bring to work. I still try and eat well, but gives me a break away from the lean cuisines and eating left overs and having to cook at home.

None of these are hard and fast rules, but guidelines that help me able to do this over the long term.
