Hi all:)

Just stopped by to say "hey"

I don't have 100 to lose at the moment but I sure did last September!
I have 89 to go as of yesterday. I may reevaluate my goal at a later date.

I'm on day "2" of my program & trying to stay out of the kitchen and stay focused.

Hi /Susie


What type of plan are you doing?

02-11-2008, 12:23 PM
Hi! Thanks so much for the big WELCOME :)

I'm 3 meals a day with a planned snack if I need it.

Lots of protein, dairy,veggies, some fruit and very little bread or simple carbs.
I'm trying to keep it between 1200 -1600 cals.

I walk a 1/2 hr on most days when the weather permits.
I really need to find a good program for weights & stretching so I'm spending some time looking around at what other people have done.
I'll be 55 in July & I'm concerned about loss of muscle.

I've suffered from BED for my entire life so I have to be really careful about total restriction.
But at the same time I need to be mindful of the fact (that I don't want to accept) that there are certain foods I simply can't handle.
I'm doing a lot of looking around & reading and some posting.

:welcome3: Susie :)

Glad you're here!
You don't have to have exactly 100 pounds to be welcome here! We're a lovely bunch ;)

You and I are the same weight right now, but you're MUCH taller than me!

Make yourself at home!

Hi Suzie. I'm so glad you've found this place!

I hear you on accepting the fact that there are some foods you just can't handle. Loud and clear. It is a hard pill to swallow, but for me, it was the only way to get control of my poor eating and therefore get control of my LIFE. Rest assured, it will get easier and it is SO very worth it.

I used/use a stretchie band for muscle building. I love that little band.

I look forward to hearing lots more from you. :)
