Smile OMG, lost 10lbs in 10 days, I have been doing it wrong all these years!

I was diagnosed with PCOS ten years ago and always heard low carb, low carb, low carb. Low carb takes too much prep for my "on-the-go with a traveling job" lifestyle, so I was always doomed to fail everytime I got aboard the low carb train. I am getting married this year and was also at my highest weight ever 2 weeks ago when I went to my doctor for a wellness check. I downloaded the Noom Weight Loss Coach app to my phone and set a goal weight of 143 (I'm 5'6") which has a calorie budget of 1690. I realize now that I was definitely clearing 3000 calories a day before. I have been staying within the 1450-1690 range for the last 10 days and I have literally dropped a pound a day. I know the weight won't drop off so fast forever, but I can't believe how much easier it is to say "I've met my calorie budget for the day" than "can't have this, can't have that, nope, not that." I can eat the same things as my fiance who lives with me as long as I am having what he calls a "dainty portion."

Can't wait to get to know you ladies!

Wonderful! Congratulations on a fabulous start! I will never go back to low carbs or any of the other many ways I've tried, either. Counting Calories is all that works and this is going to be a lifestyle because I know it works! I'm really happy you've found it works for you, too!

Awesome job. I use my fitness pal. 36lbs down since January. I have occasionally strayed and gone over. Some days by 3000 calories. What I like is the reality check when you push the button and it tells you what you will way in 5 weeks.
Keep up the good work.
