I'm still hanging in there. I had a luncheon to attend today and I still managed to stay around 1200 calories for today

Good luck to everyone.

Good Job Barbygirl!! 1200 calories is really good, but I think I would feel like I was "starvin' Marvin" if thats all I had all day.

I really haven't been using Slim-fast too much lately. Maybe because it was Spring Break this week for my son and I was on vacation from work. Mostly I have been eating a lot of fruits and veggies and high fiber beans and popcorn and the weight is falling off!!
I lost two more pounds since my last weigh in on Monday and I am not starving myself at all. I have been getting 1800 cals a day this week!!

I'm still hanging in there. The last 3 days though, I feel like I've faultered a bit.
Although, looking at my calorie intake, I'm still way under 2000 (even though my fat intake has been up).
Wednesday night, I had a baked potato with real butter for dinner and pretzels for snacks while watching tv.
Thursday I caved and had 4 small slices of pizza(I think they equal about 2 reg. size pieces, so I counted them as 2.5 slices). I paid for them this morning. I had killer heartburn most of the morning that wouldn't go away.
And tonight I forgot to eat lunch and my afternoon snack and so I had an early dinner of Subway turkey on wheat with honey mustard sauce. Then I got hte munchies in the evening and caved in to french fries and nachos. The whole day was still under 2000. I don't get it. Before I started on this trek, I was eating lots of fast food meals (usually breakfast lunch and dinner) so I think I'm still doing well. I'm not beating myself up too bad and I'm not falling off my own band wagon.

Default HI I'm New!

I have just started the slim fast plan (this is my 3rd day). So far so good. I am also trying to stay at 1200 calories for the day as well. (And drinking plenty plenty plenty of water!! At least 3 20oz bottles a day sometimes 4) I hope to join in the fun here and hopefully lose some of this weight!! I'm 21 yrs old, weigh 237 and want to be 160 like I was 2 years ago. (I'll take whatever I can get though!!!!) I've had various health issues and medications that have "helped" me put on this weight. And now I am fed up with it and am doing something about it. I figure it has got to be my calorie intake/portion size. I come from a big family and I cook "big"; there are only 2 people living in my house! Me and my boyfriend! Hope that this slimfast thing works for me!

oh yes, I am exercising! At least 30 minutes a day on my stationary bike. When the weather gets warmer I'll include a 15-30 minute walk sometime during the day. I did join slimfast.com (I am feelinfroggy over there) I am doing good today. My co-workers invited me out to lunch (unfortunatly at my favorite place!!) but I did not go. We all usually get a chicken ceasar salad, but this place doesn't 'do' lowfat. And their portion sizes are HUGE!!! So I politely declined. I had a slim fast bar (fudge brownie; yummers!) for breakfast this morning and today I decided to switch for the day and do a brown bag lunch and have my french vanilla shake (frozen of course like a milkshake) or chocolate royale at home for dinner. For the past couple of days I have been doing the slimfast for breakfast and lunch. For my from home lunch today I had one serving of pretzles (17 for 110 calories) and half a ham and cheese sandwich on wheat w/mustard. Please remember I am trying to stay at or below 1200 calories per day also; which is a lot better than the 3000-7000 I was eatting before!!! I am full from lunch. (Didn't think I would be though! LOL) I took my time and enjoyed my food. Something I haven't done in a while. And it is true, if you slow down, your body has time to "feel full". And if I get hungry before I get home this evening (around 6pm est.) I always have the other half of my sandwich. Thanks for welcoming me in. How has your success been?

Wow you gals sure are on top of things. I almost lost track of you again. Sorry I have not been posting much. I've been very bussy. On the pluss side I have lost about 5 more pounds! been geting lots of excersise and with warmer weather I am drinking lots more watter.
I just wanted to mention about the dairy thing. Someone commented on the way dairy animals are treated. I worked on a dairy farm for 4 years and the animals were always the main concern. Their sleeping areas were cleaned at least 3x a day, large fans were used to circulate air in the summer as well as a misting system to keep them comfortable in warm weather. The misconception that the calves are kept in tiny boxes which don't allow them to move around is false! No farmer in his right mind would keep an animal in such a way as to have it be unhealthy or unhappy. A sick or unhappy cow does not produce as much milk. Cows can control how much they give and I have seen stressed animals cut their production by more than 1\2 which can ammount to 50 pounds a day. Please take what you read from those animal rights people with a grain of salt. If you want to really see how the animals are treated try taking a tour of a farm. you will find that a lot of what you think about agriculture is wrong.
Ok enough of my speachmaking. I hope you find this informative and please feel free to ask me more about this topic. after all where our food comes from is important. healthy food comes from farms and where would we be without them?

Default Dinner Ideas?

Hi everyone! My name is Jennifer and I am going to be starting the Slim Fast plan tomorrow which is a complete departure from what I've been doing . I was just curious what people here on the Slim Fast board typically have for their meal of the day?

I'd been dilly-dallying with those low carb plans in the past and while the science behind them makes sense, I just can't take all that protein in meat form.....but all the information about how simple refined carbs are bad for the body have me paranoid about any carby thing I put in my mouth!!!....so I'm sitting here trying to think of some SF dinner ideas and I find myself almost afraid to eat potatoes, rice, and pasta! LOL

Despite all the sugar in the Slim Fast shakes, people seem to be doing well on it, so maybe carbs and sugar aren't as bad for the body as the people who wrote those books say.

Oh well........glad to be here!

Jennifer

For my dinners I usually eat whatever I want. I have my main meal at midday instead of at night when it would sit on my stomach all night. It is also because I work in the evenings. The last coupple of days I've been having the meat and pasta\rice\potato for dinner and a can of veggies as a snack after work. The veggies are more filling than a snack pluss good for me! I still eat lots of carbs although I have cut nearly all breads out. I have lost 50 puonds in the past year. It isn't as fast as most people want to loose but I am changing my lifestyle in the process which is a healthier way to go.
We have a terrific group here. Best wishes for success and welcome!

Default checking in!

How's everyone doing today?! I'm doing great. Still on plan even though a co-worker and I went out to lunch today. I had a small portion of pulled bar-b-que chicken, steamed spinach, and a baked potatoe. I could hardly eat all of it. I feel so stuffed. I figure I am still in calorie range also, because I had my slimfast bar this morning and tonight I had already planned to have a slim fast shake. Has anyone else had this "problem"? Are you starting to automatically eat less? Feel full faster? Maybe my stomach has "shrunk" if it can really do that. I don't mind though because I'm doing great on this plan. Let us hear how the rest of you are doing!

Default Shrinking Tummy and Shrinking Social Life...

Hello everyone! I'm new to post a comment but I have been coming here alot reading your post and I must say you are some wonderful people. Keep communicating it's helping alot more people than you think.

Frogger, I had to respond to your remark about the appetite change. Yesss!!! It does feel like your stomach is shrinking and you can't eat as much anymore. I don't even desire junk food nearly as much as I use too. Although I've only been using it faithfully for 3 Weeks now but already my clothes fit looser, people are beginnig to compliment me on my appearance although strangely the scale hasn't moved much and I have so much more energy! I don't now what's in that stuff that makes it have that effect on me but it's a God sent for me. I do have a question that I would like ask your opion of.

I have become acquainted with a new employee at my job and she likes to go out to eat with out discretion, she doesn't like to walk, drink water (it's like something foreign to her)and she is heavy as well. I dont want to come of like I'm too good to eat out with her and I don't want her to think I don't like her company or anything like that but our lifestyles don't agree at all I have tried to share some of the good habits I've learned with her but to no avail. I got in this trouble in the first place at my other job two years ago eating out everyday and I mean everyday with a very close, very small framed co-worker. Sad to say one of the reasons i was so glad to leave that job was because i didn't have the pressure to eat out anymore. Now i don't want to even put my self in that position again. It might be easy for some to say well you go ahead and eat Burger King and i'll just eat my salad or drink my slimfast but I just don't even want to be tempted/subjected to that at all. We share stories re our children and she's a nice person but....

How do I say I don't want to eat lunch with you any more without offending her?

Thank you for letting me vent to you.

Keep up the good habits to keep down those bad pounds.

Default Eating Buddies

Spoiled: I have had this problem many times. Sometimes my BF will want to go out to eat after I have already ate, I have went to restaurants with my BF and just absolutely not eaten anything..sat there and drank a glass of water until he was done.
With your co-worker just be honest, tell her you are doing a lifestyle change and you are watching closely what you are eating.
I'd go out with her sometimes, but I would cut it back.

If you want to be successful you have to do what works for you..it is you, you are doing this for...you are number one.
I have sit in the evening and smell pizza and chinese food my co-workers order...I will just not give in I have come to far...
Good luck
