I'd love to join too. I've been eating way too many sweets lately, it's out of control. I don't count calories really but I'll post my "bad" foods like desserts, fried things and alcohol. Today was pretty dismal as I had 1.5 chocolate bars.

I actually did really well yesterday considering I didn't make it to the gym. I am sick, and slowly recovering. I ate very well. I also went on a two hour very hilly hike. Then did some pushups and abs later in the evening. I have noticed that since I got serious about losing weight, I've lost about 3 lbs. I can only hope to keep it up!

Are you 5' 7 1/2" and 122lbs?
If so, maybe your body is just hungry.

I'd love to join you guys. I've been trying ot get back into losing the last bit for a week now. So hello!

Lil bit about myself: 26 year old student. Work in healthcare a few days a week but mostly am trying to graduate Uni this year. My procrastination get's the better of me with a LOT of things. Always looking for ways to break through that. Tips are welcome! hihi.

I don't feel fat anymore, but I also don't feel comfoy in my body jusy yet, which is why I wanna lose some more weight. My ideal would be to eventually end up at 120lbs. But I know it's probably not going to happen. Somewhere between 125 and 130 would be just fine too.

Good morning everyone. I did pretty well yesterday.

I am starting to feel lighter in my body, which feels good. And this morning I noticed my muffin top is shrinking a little bit!! Yay!!

Welcome everyone! I'm glad I've got such a good response!
girl81, whole foods really would be the best option for me I just have a really hard time sticking to it.
ange I love your "good day" "average day" idea.

I've eaten 1500 calories the past two days..which I'm maintaining at..I really need to get down to 1200! Ugh ok, I probably need to cut out all processed foods for a while to get these last 10 lbs off.

Nice to see there so-many of us which just a few pounds to go...it really is difficult though!!

Day 2 = "Good"

Back in the office yesterday and a day of strategy meetings, which involves lunch provided, but i took in my own salad instead, so discipline points awarded there!

Salad for dinner too because the electric lines across the road fell down so we had no power for 5hrs. We went to the pub instead, to watch the football that we'd intended to watch from home, but i just had soda water, so more discipline points there too!!

Today will be harder to stick to plan as we're off to the city tonight to see a music gig in a little bar with friends as part of the Sydney Arts Festival, and dinner in another bar before, so the temptation will be to have a glass of wine or two with the others!

thanks PC - i like encouragement!!

Well done to everyone on here though - we've all made a start, and sometimes that's the hardest thing.

I agree; everyone deserves kudos. This is a hard task on the best of days.

I'm going out for mexican food tonight (not my idea...sigh...mexican food is sooo fattening), so I'm hoping I do well.

I think not. I eat roughly 2500 kcal per day, and frankly 1-2 times per week I go over 3000 with 4 course meals and alcohol. I'm probably way less hungry than most people on here. I want to stop eating junk and replace it with healthier snacks. It's easier said than done hence my wanting to be "accountable" somewhere.

I'm the same way. I eat more than most women by far. Hunger is not an issue. My nemesis is sugar. I have to keep control of my sweet tooth or it can get out of control.

That's me to a tee. I began eating a lot of sweets during the holidays and now I've got the taste again. If I don't eat it for awhile I don't crave it. I stress it at work especially. I need to bring an abundance of healthy snacks to get back on track.
