Just start low glycemic diet. Not easy; my calories are 1200-1300 a day. Night is a big problem. Any suggestions?

Screen Name: TMunday

Age/Age Range: 32

Family Life: Happily married with 3 children - a 14 year old son, a 10 (will be 11 the day after Christmas!) year old, and 6 year old daughters.

Occupation: Stay at home Mom and housewife.

Hobbies and Interests: Reading any and all health, fitness, and diet books I can get my hands on. Nascar. My flowers that are growing beautifully this year! And of course my computer online time!!! There is probably others, but I can't think right now lol.

Favorite Music: Good Ol' rock and roll, country, love songs, and "some" of the stuff the kids listen to now a days.

Favorite Color(s): Black, rosey color pinks, some blues, and some purples.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Leslie Sansone's WATP, ALL of them! If I could own them all I would.

What are your fitness/health goals? Just to be healthy and look good. And of course to feel better. If I can lose around 5 pounds a month I would probably be happy with that. Something is better then nothing.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? (This time!) I couldn't get off of the couch easily! Depression. Didn't like looking at the fat monster in the mirror! Many things... I could go on forever.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Making sure I eat at least 3 meals a day! I am one that could go all day without eating. So I am trying to make sure I eat at least 3 meals a day plus a snack or two! I would like to continue to eat between 1500 and 1800 calories a day... in healthy food choices.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve?
1. Eating 3 plus meals a day.
2. Keep eating healthy choices.
3. Positive thinking always, and exercise daily - no excuses!

(Evil motivation) Who do you want to look better than?: I would love to look like the actress's on tv... however, this is reality. So as long as I look better then I do right now I will be happy.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Smaller clothing lol. No elastic waistlines lol. Fitted shirts! Skirts! You name it... it is endless!

Screen Name: Snow White

Age/Age Range: 24

Family Life: Single, live with my younger sister.

Occupation: Student

Hobbies and Interests: Medicine, my computer (I'm online way more than I should!), shoes, music, reading about diet/fitness.

Favorite Music: Pop, RnB. At the moment it's Gawin Degraw though I'm not sure I'd put his music in any of those categories.

Favorite Color(s): Black, turquoise

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Walking

What are your fitness/health goals? Look good, feel good and being able to fit my clothes from my good period (115 lbs) many of which still have the tag on!

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I've tried so many times before but after participating in the WYD 2005 where we ate so much unhealthy food I thought that I couldn't continue feeding by body such junk. Plus with all the cute guys here - you kinda want to make an impression, a good one I mean

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I just started a week ago and so far everything is going great. I'm getting slighty more carbs and about 200 cal more than when I've dieted in the past which seems to be working well but still I'm inclined to cut back on my calories even though I've learned so many times before that it leads to failure!

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve?
Doing more aerobic exercise. I try to walk every day but I really need to speed up my pace cause I hardly sweat or feel tired.

(Evil motivation) Who do you want to look better than?: Better than my best friend... No, that would be cool but some things you can't change. I wanna look better than when I was slim 3 years ago!

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? All my pretty size 5/6 clothes and buy more of them - lots more!

Hi guys
I'm new, I've been using fitday to keep my calories at around 1200-1400 and exercising every day. Progress is slow.
I'm 32 and live in NYC married with cats : )
I was at 150 on Thursday and when I weighed in this am I was up 3 pounds. Very wierd , my weekend diet was around 1200 plus kickboxing, step aerobics etc.
Enough about me, you all are a wonderful inspiration
thanks for being out there

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? OMG, I saw my twin! We recently moved to a new town and my daughter wanted to sign up for the little football teams cheerleading squad. Once her practices started back in July I had ALOT of people come up behind me, tapping on my shoulder, attempting to get my attention, etc but they were calling me by another ladies name (which happens to be one of the chief organizer of the program). That was fine, I was new and needed to meet new people but then I met her.......and had a coronary seeing what I truly looked like. We look just alike from hair to toe!
