I had a couple of major struggles throughout the process, and I'll list 'em here with a bit of background:

-Night time eating. I know that as a general rule of thumb, you're supposed to eat when you're hungry. Unfortunately, I become irrationally, fist-gnawingly hungry at night, even after eating a good sized dinner. Whether it was psychological or a real physical sensation, I had to accept that I WAS going to feel hungry at night. I was eating less than my body needed to maintain its overweight status. I decided to just buckle down and discipline myself against nibbling at night after dinner, and within a week it became much easier.

-Calorie wasting! Yes, you can eat whatever you want as long as long as your calories are right, but I found myself wasting them on silly things like way too much fro-yo or slices of bread, which just make you hungrier, and don't do a whole ton for your nutritionally, and sometimes make you retain water and skew your scale results (if you care about scales).

-Patience. Just because the scale doesn't move, it doesn't mean that your waistline hasn't. I can diet for a month and stay 98% on track and not see any scale results, but then after a week of steady workouts and plenty of water intake, I suddenly drop 5 lbs by the next weigh-in.

-My last struggle, which I still deal with, was keeping my eye on the prize. It was easy at 200 or so lbs, because I HAAAATED how I looked and became obsessed with changing the flab. I'd go to the gym every day and for a month, before joining 3FC, I'd even eat as low as 800 calories a day (I still only lost 5 lbs that month!). Now that I'm closer to a normal weight, it's harder to keep on top of myself because I'm starting to get compliments, and I'm starting to look pretty decent. Have to remember that I have a very important goal to mind.


Get yourself a comfortable routine, plan your meals, and don't think of it so much as a chore. Once you see results, you will be ecstatic and it'll become more like a game than a struggle. The most I've ever lost in a month was 7-8 real pounds (not water), which is pretty good, honestly. If you weigh close to what I do now, you'll probably drop 1 lb a week after the initial water weight.

If it helps, try telling yourself you'll diet for ONE month, and if you're completely miserable at the end of one month, you can stop. I have a feeling once you see the 5 or so lb loss you won't feel like turning back .

GOOD LUCK!

It's not really too crunchy, just has a bit of texture. I think it seems high, but really most non-diet variety ones are already 190 and with a lot of sugar and salt. Give it a try just once! It's cheap, too

So, I am re-vamping my strategy since school has kind of given me a roadblock. It takes up a TON of my time and I've had trouble finding 30 minutes to squeeze into the gym..so, this just means I need to be more organized and aggressive in my approach.

I'm changing my ticker to start at 161, to light a fire under my but to drop these last 25 lbs. I WILL do this. First spinning class at my new gym this morning.

Oh I just meant PB in general is high in calories. Of course it has good stuff, oils, protein, fiber. I love it. It's really the perfect food. I get a natural one that's shelf stable, i think it's Jif or skippy, can't remember just now. They just add palm oil to it and salt. It's YUMMM.
