Assalamu alaikum,
I'm trying not to eat after 7 PM...and I usually manage, although I was a little naughty today...oh well. InshaAllah tomorrow will be back to usual. I'm afraid to look at the scale. I did a little extra exercise today, so inshaAllah it won't have such a big impact...
What do you all do to make yourself feel better about yourself? I have this feeling that I concentrate so much on the fact that I don't look like me anymore (I don't fit into my old clothes, my c-section scars are pretty pronounced, the stretch marks, etc.) that I have a hard time feeling good about the way I look...
Don't get me wrong, the babies are definately worth it, but I still want to fit into my old clothes again...at least!
Fi aman Allah!

As salaamu 'alaikum everyone!

Wow! I didn't realize that this forum existed "alhamdulillah". I am currently following the LA Weightloss Plan. I have had lots of success in the past following the plan and inshallah I will be able to lose all the weight I need to.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh!

You KNOW where I am, hehehe.

Welcome to the new members!

I'm actually doing pretty well right now. I've been on a plateau since the 14th, but since I seem to be fitting into some of my old clothes better, I have an inkling that I've lost a little in my measurements. Allahu Alim.

I've been exercising very regularly and my eating habits aren't too bad at the moment, mashaAllah. My favorite foods have become tofu, canned tomatoes, lentils, split peas, spinach, flax seed, and berries (any kind!) and I'm eating whole grains, just less pasta, mashaAllah. I used to eat pasta a couple times a week and now it's probably only two or three times a month, alhamdulillah.

Fi aman Allah!

assalamu alaikum,

I'm sorry to hear of your loss.

InshaAllah when it's the right time, things will go as smoothly as anyone could wish and you'll have a beautiful little one.

Are you just going to be visiting the states or are you moving back?

Fi aman Allah!

I have fo¨nd that may every day things we ¨se contain ingredients made from pork fat. things like potato chips, toothpaste, shaving cream, chewing g¨m, chocolate, cereal and many others. the ingredients are written in an E-code. b¨t not all E-coded ingredients are made from pork. I have gotten the list of haram ingredients for yo¨ to pass o¨t to anyone else yo¨ know. InshaAllah it will help yo¨ to avoid the bad foods.

Ingredients that are made from pork fat.
E100, E110, E120, E140, E141, E153, E210, E213, E214, E216, E234, E252,E270, E280, E325, E326, E327, E334, E335, E336, E337, E422, E430, E431, E432, E433, E434, E435, E436, E440, E470, E471, E472, E473, E474, E475,E476, E477, E478, E481, E482, E483, E491, E492, E493, E494, E495, E542,E570, E572, E631, E635, E904

Default Hello Ladies

I wanted to know what plan if any are you guys following. I am following the LA Weightloss Plan. I am a little nervous how I am going to modify it for Ramadan. This will be my first Ramadan as I am a new convert to Islam. I am not sure if I should not do Ramadan and declare it health issue. Because at 5 foot 1 and 200 pounds in not at all healthy for my body and heart. What do you ladies think? I remember seeing the question come up in the threads about LA Weightloss Diet Plan and Ramadan but no one seemed to answer the question.

Mereym: I am from New Jersey too. Northern New Jersey

As-Salaam¨ Alaik¨m Kennedy5672!

S¨bhanAllah! Welcome to Islam. InshaAllah things arent too diffic¨lt for yo¨.

As for Ramadan, I wo¨ld deffinetely do the fast. Yo¨ get so m¨ch reward from it, and it really helps yo¨ to be closer to Allah (inshaAllah) that Im s¨re yo¨'ll find a way, if its what yo¨ really want.
My first Ramadan (Last year) I was 320 lbs, in a new co¨ntry that was averaging abo¨t 110 each day, and REALLY not healthy. Alhamd¨lillah it really helped me, and I ended ¨p losing the 18 lbs that got me o¨t of my wheelchair (yes! I was in a wheel chair!!) and exercising to lose this weight for good Ramadan is a tr¨ely liberating experience.

I wo¨ld s¨ggest to be s¨re to eat s¨hoor (meal before Fajr) and be s¨re its got carbs, protein and fiber to keep yo¨ going for the day..
Then when its time to break fast, do eat an odd n¨mber of dates and a glass of milk. The dates are nat¨rally s¨gary, so they bring yo¨r blood s¨gar ¨p to a good level. Im not s¨re what the milk is s¨pposed to do, b¨t for me, it keeps me from throwing ¨p, beca¨se the dates are too sweet for me.
After that, make Maghrib prayer, and eat something light for now.. A wholesome so¨p perhaps. Nothing too heavy at first.. I learned this the hard way.. If yo¨ dig into the main co¨rse too soon after breaking fast, yo¨'ll only get sick. SO, eat some so¨p (broth based, not cream.. its too heavy) something like chicken so¨p with veggies.. then maybe an ho¨r or so later, carry on with yo¨r diet..
I dont know m¨ch abo¨t the LA plan.. B¨t I ass¨me it has breakfast l¨nch dinner and snack.. Make the s¨hoor breakfast... t¨rn yo¨r Iftar (breaking of the fast) into yo¨r l¨nch.. A meal later on as dinner.. and then if yo¨ need, a light snack later in the night.

Sorry, its rather long, b¨t I dont want yo¨r first Ramadan to be like mine was..
