- thank you for the welcome back. I have been dieting for 15 months, and this is my first significant regain. Trying to shelve the bad feelings about the regained lbs, and focus on moving forward.
- Welcome to the thread and gratz on breaking out of the 220s!!!
- I'm so happy for your hitting Onederland
! Save us a seat in the next thread down.
- just wanted to say hi and I hope you reach your goal of being in the 2-teens very soon.
I am still not adhering to my daily calorie goal of 1500, but I am having small successes. I am eating generally less and definitely making better food choices. One thing I am not doing well is upping my water consumption. When I went off the diet rails for a couple of months, I got very used to sweet drinks like zero calorie sports drinks, unsweetened iced tea with sweetener packets, and some diet sodas. Sweet drinks make me crave salty snacks - a contributor to my regain. I'm having to develop a "taste" for water again if that makes any sense! I also broke out the kitchen scale which I had never used before and measured out some chicken breast. Small steps I guess. My lackluster attempt at dieting did yield a slight weight loss - I'm down .4 lbs
Onward and downward!
