I'm new here. Stumbled upon this wonderful forum by accident. I had a read around alot of the posts, and one thing I noticed, is how friendly and nice everyone is! This place is brilliant!
I've been searching for a nice weight loss support forum for ages, and this is the best one I have ever seen.

my new diet is going to be simple:

EDIT:

my new eating programe, basically follows Paul Mckenna's 4 golden rules.

4 GOLDEN RULES

1. When You Are Hungry, Eat

2. Eat What You Want, Not What You Think You Should

3. Eat Consciously And Enjoy Every Mouthful (eat SLOWLY, no T.V)

4. When You Think You Are Full, Stop Eating


And checking if i am really hungry by drinking a glass of water. as 75% of the time, you might be thirsty and not hungry.

And also constantly monitoring my hunger level, by checking the hunger scale. avoiding the red zone of the hunger scale!



Also my plan includes the gabriel method, and a little bit of south beach thrown in

Also exercising everyday, no matter what it is or however short.


---



my confession from today

exercise - loads of squats with hand held weights. stomach crunches. and 50 ab rolls with my ab roller. its this wheely thing that you roll infront of you.

late breakfast- 2 peaches, some cherries, 1 plum.

lunch - steamed vegetables, turnips and lamb stew, bowl of lentils, pickled onions, home made yoghurt.

for dessert, i had 40g of fruit and fibre cereal with half a cup of milk.

--
dinner at 9pm. vegetables, turnips and lamb stew, 2 carrots, pickled onions, and home made low fat yoghurt.

and a small slice of watemelon.



todays weight - 173.4lbs

i think that is a great idea. and i, like you, looked for an accountability thread. working out isnt my problem, but being accountable for what i eat is.

We used to have a food planning thread for everyday back in '06 -'07. I fell off the wagon then so I don't know what happened to it... but it's great to see it start back up. I'll join!

Today:

Breffix - 2 slices whole grain wheat bread, sundried tomatoes, sprinkling of feta cheese and chopped up basil. Toasted.

Lunch - 1 cup (cooked) white rice, spiced roasted potatoes, 1/2 cup plain yogurt.

Snack - 1 bag popcorn (100 cal snack bags), bunch of grapes (yum!), handful of toasted pita chips

Dinner - Noodles with plenty of veggies - bell peppers, bean sprouts, carrots, green onions, mushrooms and garlic/ginger.

Hmmm... I feel like I overdid the snacks today... something to work on for tomorrow.

do you track your food on something like Sparkpeople, fitday, dailyplate? to make sure you're getting enough calories, fiber, protein, fat, etc? that might help in addition to a thread here.

Morning everyone!

Food for today:

Breffix - 1 cup skim milk with cocoa powder, 1 medium sized pear

Lunch - 1 California Pizza kitchen bbq chicken pizza

Snack - handful of pita chips

Dinner - chicken curry (1 drumstick), 1 cup cooked white rice, plain yogurt, bell peppers and potatoes.

Dessert - 1 large cupcake. Um. I was hankering for something sweet. There's nothing in the house (on purpose). *guilty face*

Not many veggies in there, and lots of potatoes...but we're out of groceries so need to go shopping soon.

Oooh, I missed the exercise portion:

1 hour dancing - Done
1 hour tennis - Going in 10 mins

Woohoo, Echo!! I don't know how long you've been on your weight-loss plan, but water weight is a good loss as well. It's motivating, if nothing else.

Congrats!
