I'm new to these forums and since this one is not under any one program, I am wondering what program you are following.

I count calories, eat healthy foods, drink lots of water, and ride my exercise bike 3x a week. So far it's working!

Hi Wendy! Welcome!

I eat a whole foods, vegan, low carbohydrate diet and monitor/control my calories. I also exercise (yoga, weight lifting, treadmill and aqua exercise) as much as possible.

What are you doing?

WELCOME!

I also count calories (while loosely following The Zone), drink lots of water and exercise approx 10 hours/week - cardio and weight training. This is something I can see doing for the rest of my life. I did a very restrictive *diet* 10 years ago and learned my lesson. It has to be something I can do forever. Not start and finish, kwim?

I count calories - try to stay between 1600-1800, under 2000. I also drink at least 64 oz of water daily and exercise at least 5 days a week.

Actually, I have been very ill for the last couple of weeks - just now starting to feel better - so I will be going BACK to this in the morning.

Good luck to you!

I am following WW because I really need the structure. I am not going to meetings though, just doing it at home and with the support I find here. Eating my points and starting off by walking 1 mile a day and then will up my exercise.

I calorie count. I eat mostly whole foods, heavy on the protein and fiber.

I exercise about 45 minutes doing some type of light-moderate cardio (walking, hiking, etc.) 3x a week, and 15-20 minutes Pilates 2x a week.

I'm following the LA Weight Loss plan. I used to go in to the center, now I'm just doing it on my own. I also try to exercise several days a week even if it's just walking.

I'm following Low Carb, a-la Atkins. I'm also counting calories, generally keeping them between 1500-1700.

Hitting the gym 5 days a week is the goal (3 days of lifting, 2 days of high-intensity cardio), though so far this semester, 4 days is all I've managed. I'm hoping this week is the week!

Hi Wendy
I'm calorie counting - between 1500-1800 a day. I also workout at the gym every second day - 40 min cardio and 1 hr 15 min of weight training.

I am following the South Beach Diet. I also count my calories just because I like to keep track. I exercise about 5 times a week - 3 days of intense cardio and 2 days walking 2 miles. I also do weights maybe once or twice a week. I'm slowing building up my exercise.

I count calories - 1500 is the goal - and work out 3-5 days per week. I try for five, sometimes have to settle for three. I do 30 minutes interval on the treadmill, 15 minutes on the rowing machine, 15 minutes of weights.

I used to try to eat five fruits and veggies per day, but at the first of the year I upped that to eight. Read a really good book over the Christmas break that emphasized whole foods and plant foods, so I'm trying to change my eating habits a little bit. I focus on fiber and protein and try to stay away from white stuff five days per week.

Welcome to the forum!

Wow it seems like most of us are calorie counters. I started out that way watching calories and carbs and recently switched to the fat smash diet.
