  1. Reviewing the 2018 thread has really shown how different our goals and methods are, so I thought I would start a new thread for 2019. SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time Bound. I know this works for many people, but honestly it doesn't for me. The more specific and strict I am about goals, the more pressure I feel. I feel like I am doing something because I have to, and that makes me not want to do it. Personally, I like to set goals about habits, not about results - since I can control what I do, but I really can't control the effect it ultimately has on my body. So my goals are all about things I wan to do, and wherever it leads me is great. I would prefer to lose about seven more pounds, and I think these habits will lead me there. I have started using a Clever Fox planner to jot notes for each day (how I feel, how I ate) plus it has a spot for habit tracking & self reflection. It's awesome. It keeps me mindful of my health and non-health goals (like reading more!). My 2019 goals: Exercise: Continue with daily exercise, and aim for 30-60 minutes a day - 30 in the morning and maybe another 30 in the evening. Last year I got in basic shape and want to take it further with more intense cardio & strength training. I am doing the Jessica Smith 6-week transformation, and I'm enjoying it so far. I will probably do phase 2 & phase 3 of her Walk Strong program. I'm actually going out today to get weighted gloves to make the workouts more intense. My resting heart rate is about 55, and it takes a lot of effort to get me in the cardio zone. I'm interested in trying Yvette Bachman's YouTube routines - they would definitely be challenging but look really fun. My current step count goal is 8000 but I think I will move it back up to 10k. Eating: I have to fit in my ball gown in two weeks, so for now I am eating pretty light and trying not to bloat. I do a lot better without this kind of pressure. I have used various methods to track my food, but ultimately my goal is to keep tracking it. I have a target calorie range of 1200-1600 and plan to keep that until I lose these last 7 lbs. Then I will bump it up to maintenance. My Fitbit says I burn 2000-2400 per day but I'm not sure I believe that. I plan to keep doing what is working; I have settled on a routine of four meals, about 200-400 calories each, at 9, 12, 3, and 6. I don't eat after dinner so I have a bit of a fast. I am happy with the quality of the food I eat so I don't have specific goals there. I have been making lunch bowls and they are LIFE CHANGING. I roast and/or saute a bunch of veggies, cook up some whole grain (barley, farro, brown rice, quinoa), and cook up some protein (chicken, Boca burgers, turkey). I portion it out into 2-cup food storage containers and those are ready to go. Right now I have brown rice, peppers/onions/zucchini, and fajita steak in some and I also have farro, pumpkin/zucchini/onions, baked chicken, and salsa in another. I want to keep doing this!! So basically, my goals are to keep exercising daily, aim for 10k+ steps per day, eat in my target calorie range, eat on my schedule, and batch-cook healthy lunch bowls - and hopefully I will lose fat and gain muscle by doing that. ETA: I found this and thought it could be helpful!
  2. Has anyone here tried the 21 Day Fix? If so, would you care to share your thoughts on it? I'm not too sure about the exercise part. It may be too high-intensity for me. I really can no longer handle any jumping-type moves anymore. The eating part and those adorable containers intrigue me. I'm gimmicky that way. :D Does one have to get the Shake part (Shakeology)? What if I don't want to do the shake?
  3. www.knowthecause.com I just wanted to share a monthly email newsletter I started getting recently. Now if I could just watch the show I would. I found Doug Kauffman about 10 years ago and have been helped tremendously by his research. He has some great guests and great books as well. Archives are easily accessible to read in the newsletter as well. Allergies, DNA, Diets, and much more are discussed in the new May newsletter. :001_smile:
  4. I desperately need to add more protein to my kids' diet. I don't normally cook breakfast and a lot of the convenient breakfast foods are just boatloads of carbs. I'd love to be able to make a blender full of protein shakes/smoothies for the whole family in the morning using some protein base and fresh fruit. The problem is I have no idea what protein base/powder to use. Do you have any recommendations that are kid-approved for taste? I'm all ears... :bigear:
  5. I am new to juicing and raw food. I would love to gather together a list of your favorite green smoothie recipes to try out.
  6. I have lost a lot of weight in the past 2 years. I counted calories and did WW. At this stage in my life I am decluttering and simplifying everything. I am trying to do a simple-as-can-be diet plan because I am sick of counting and tracking everything. I am just plain tired and I don't want to cook multiple meals anymore either. My grocery list is a mile long and I have to do too much prep, too many recipes, too many ingredients.... SO- I really want to eat a protein bar or drink a shake for breakfast and lunch and then eat a salad or some fruit for my 3rd meal and do like a lean cuisine for dinner. I know this is not the healthiest and I wont do this forever...I am looking at dropping this last 30 lbs and maybe do this for 12 weeks or so. Anyways....any suggestions for a shake or protein bar? I have tried Aldi's brand and liked those but I was wondering if anyone has done a diet similar to this and has any info on it??
  7. I love it. I have so much energy. I am not tempted to cheat. I have lost 5 lbs so far (even though I am hypothyroid and PCOS). Just wanted to share!:party:
  8. I am considering a 28 day challenge to go mostly raw. I have poly cystic ovaries and hypothyroid. Me meds are regulated, but I have a hard time making the scale budge. Anyone have a testimonial of losing weight with a raw diet? Any tips or suggestions? How long did it take for you to lose?
  9. I need to lose weight. I need to get in better shape. And while I know that I really, really need to...I just don't want to IYKWIM. I weigh more right now than I ever have other than when pregnant (and I am 2 pounds away from where I was when I gave birth to ds), my skin looks icky and my hair is just blah. I know that my unhealthy lifestyle is causing me problems and I really want to change. I WANT to want to do this. I just can't seem to make it happen. I am totally addicted to carbs. I keep thinking that a low carb diet would be wonderful, but I just can't imagine how in the world I would make it through the first couple of weeks. I enjoy eating for the sake of eating...you know, I am a muncher and a grazer. There is nothing better than noshing on food while perusing my favorite websites or reading a book. It is my treat to me when the kids are finally in bed! I would love to be a person who eats to live rather than one who lives to eat...but it is just so darn fun. I know that I need to start taking steps in the right direction...but I'm just not sure where to start. Suggestions???
  10. Is there something which would explain - to somebody who does NOT get it the least - why would a young adult (early 20s) have consistent weight issues for many years, while they are NOT ill (nothing is physiologically wrong with them, their weight problems are not a symptom or a side-effect of something more fundamental), NOT delusional in any way (it is not like the person is not aware they have problems), and do NOT suffer from any other condition? Is there such a thing as a "psychology" of obesity - especially in such young people, who 'should' by default care about their image, and apparently they do not? Why would a person have self-control in other areas of life, but not in this one? From what I know, they have not undergone any abuse, do not suffer from any additional conditions.and I cannot seem to individuate any additional factors, it is "pure" obesity. We are not talking "a little overweight", they are obese. I cannot estimate the numbers, but in the 100+ kg group. Maybe even 120+. It is a product of an unhealthy lifestyle, but what would keep the person in that place for so long at such a young age? There seems to be nothing preventing them from doing something about it, a clear-cut self-control and determination issue in my eyes, but I am willing to consider if there is something else known about people like that. Why would they be doing this to themselves? Is there some kind of a mechanism that brings about this state? They were overweight from early teenage years, but it escalated when they moved away from parents. Are they just not ready to taker over the control for their life? Is it a pure laziness issue? But why would such a young person not care particularly? There are other signs of lack of general care about their appearance (maybe banal things, but you can also seem them with a greasy hair or dirt under their nails - nothing HUGE and they are not "dirty", but there are many subtle signs that they do not really take seriously their appearance or are more lax with it). What would drive a young person there? Is there any literature on this topic, anything online to read about? They are quite intelligent. :confused: I do not think it can be boiled down to ignorance about what is healthy. It seems like some form of self-destruction to me. But WHY? And why in this form? Not my place to say or do anything, but I would like to try to understand if there is something actually written on this topic.
  11. Does anyone know of a free online food diary that will allow the entry of weight/height for children like Green Light, Red Light, Eat Right. The one's I've tried are geared for adults, so they won't allow me to enter DD7's weight and height data. Thanks!
  12. I do! :D I was 100% raw a few years back, and felt really good, but at a certain point I wasn't eating enough calories, and I was losing weight and began to get insomnia. So I would like to go back to raw, but this time, go "high raw" with about 70-80% of my caloric intake from raw foods, the rest millet, quinoa, beans, and maybe a small amount of raw dairy. Anyone interested in joining me?
  13. I know I've seen that some of you have been doing this fast and have some questions... I would like to start after the new year. I would also like to stretch the middle 5 on their 5-5-5 plan out longer. How much has it cost you to do juice only? I don't know where I would find fresh vegis in the winter here. The CSAs nearby shut down by November. I was thinking I might have to buy most of them at Costco. Would that work? I don't know of any source of Kale until June. What would be a good substitute? Thanks, Amy
  14. I have come to conclude that my body just doesn't handle carbs very well. With them I seem to be sluggish and bloated, but without I'm fine. So after doing a little research there seems to be 3 major "diets" {for lack of a better word} that seem to be low carb. 1. Atkins -- I know very little about it except that I had a relative who did it and seemed to eat gobs of stuff that seemed unhealthy and lost no weight. Now, I know that could have been the fault of the user, but I also had issues with a few Atkin friends I had declining veggies and fruit due to carb issues. I NEED my veggies, and I really love my fruit as I don't usually eat sweets. 2. South Beach -- I thought this was some kinda of Atkins spin-off, but I might be wrong. I thought veggies and fruit were a-okay on this one, but again I know even less about this eating thing. 3. Paleo -- I've heard this one mentioned a few times too many lately to not look into it. It looks like they do an exclusion to all grains, and I'm not sure I'm quite ready for that plunge. I enjoy my bowl of oatmeal porridge in the ams, especially in the winter when it's COLD out, or in the summer when nectarines are ripe. Yet, abstinence makes since if I'm having issues. So, what can you tell me about any of the three above? Which one is worth looking into more? Is 100% no grains really as good as they wanna say? I saw a particular place suggest trying it for just 30 days and see/feel the difference. But, they also suggested only 1 fruit per day if you needed to drop a few pounds, and I do. I dunno if I could go with only 1 fruit a day! :001_huh: I think I need more info so I feel secure taking the plunge in whatever direction I wanna go. ;)
  15. but rather by changing habits, or getting rid of the REASONS why you overeat? I have lost over 80 lbs and I have been stuck for quite awhile. I just cannot stick to a diet plan. And I am sick to death of dieting and worrying and thinking about food. I googled "how to stick to a diet" and found this article It makes so much sense to me and I am thinking about trying out these 10 tips and seeing where it gets me. I realize I still have to do some form of a healthy eating plan and so I am going to track my calories and that's it. I will also continue to exercise 30 mins a day because I just feel better when I do. I think this last chunk of weight is a mental hurdle more than anything and I just need a life change rather than a diet. I need to change my mind and habits. I really like the idea of automated eating. I NEED to make eating...just eating. Not my means of a reward or something that I look forward to doing. I think that making an eating schedule and plan may take away the fun for me and I will reprogram myself to just eat to live and not live to eat. I truly get disgusted with the way I love food. I gotta get over this and get on with my life. Food and weight have consumed my thoughts for too long. Has anyone BTDT and had success?
  16. I have now gained MORE than 15 pounds since I got married last November. This has to stop and reverse. I am 5'6" and I want to weigh 125-128. I just need a boost of some sort to get started. I do pretty well on controlling my choices and portions once I get started but when I'm in this kind of cycle I can't seem to get myself under control. I think I'm a carbaholic....all I want to do is eat chips! Has anyone had any success with a Quick Loss Start plan or some such?
  17. If you are wanting to loose some weight in a healthy manner and need support, please come join us. This is a Christian group and we share/support one another in that endeavor through sharing experiences, ideas, scripture and prayer. http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/noexcusesweightloss/ If you have any questions feel free to send me a pm.
  18. Do you ever use the excuse, "I can't afford a new wardrobe."? As I was coming home from the Dr yesterday I was thinking, "I have finally gotten a few nice summer clothes and if I loose the 30# Dr wants me to loose I won't be able to wear any of them next summer." I then realized how many times I have used the excuse of clothes to NOT try to loose weight.:001_huh: Well, no more. I am going to talk to dh this morning as he knows that Dr has told me I need to do this if I am going to have much life left and I am going to gently remind him that loosing this weigh is going to mean that non of my clothes will fit in a few months or less.:001_smile: How about you? Anyone want to join me? I weighed in at 213 this morning. My goal is to loose 10# in the next 2 months. I really want it to be slow so it stays gone.
  19. I had begun to despair, lol. But I gave up grains, and sugar, and have stuck to meats, eggs, greek yogurt, cream, fruits, and veggies. Oh, and almonds. Lots of iced green tea/herbal tea and I'm down to just a few diet cokes a day. My heartburn is TOTALLY gone now that I am off the grains, which is a huge shock. My doctors always told me I needed a low fat diet because of my GERD. But now I'm eating 50% or more of my calories from fat and the heartburn is gone. Crazy. I'm almost happier about that than the weightloss. But I am happy about the loss. I am the one that posted that I only lose 1/2 to 1 pound a week no matter how hard I try. Well, I have lost 1 1/2 pounds this week. And that is with eating very well. Oh, and my milk supply is actually better than before, and the baby is sleeping better! Even though I have my period!!! (supply usually tanks for days during my period). So thanks for those that encouraged me!
  20. I really need to loose weight. I want a program that tells you what, when and how much to eat. I need something that is all laid out and easy to follow. I don't want a fad diet. I want something that promotes healthy eating. Any suggestions?
  21. I just (re-)joined WW for the 1st time in many years - starting tomorrow morning. I have about 70 lbs. to lose :eek: and it's not coming off by itself! The only time I have ever had success in the weight-loss department was with WW, and I am committed to making this work. I am not familiar with the new Points Plus program, although I pretty much "get" the concept. On the old Points program I got about 27 Pts., I believe. I think I allotted myself 5 at breakfast, 7 at lunch, and 11 at dinner. Then I had two, one-Pt. snacks and a two-Pt. dessert. Now I get 34 Pts. and wonder how best to split it up. I'd think I'd like to stick to a more NoS Diet way of eating, where I eat my three main meals with no snacking. So maybe 10-12-12? Not knowing the new system yet, 10 sounds like an incredible amount for a breakfast, but when I added tomorrow's breakfast (instant oatmeal, milk, and one egg fried in 1 Tsp. olive oil) it equaled 10 Pts. ;) So - just curious. How do you split-up your daily Points?
  22. Just wanted to check in to see what your results are on the HCG diet. I am still contemplating ordering the drops or pellets. Can you tell me which brand you are using? Whether you would use that brand again? Any crazy hunger? Results so far? :bigear:
  23. Ok, I am considering hcg for weight loss. I know there are a bunch of women on WTM who use hcg to lose weight. What has been your experience? Testimony? What brand did you use? Type? How did you decide on that brand (reviews)? I have tried to follow some of the links, but I get a bit confused. I really respect you ladies. You do your research :001_smile:
  24. My child is 5 and in the 60% for height and 90% for weight. My doctor suggested that I have him have a whole grain, high protein, lower glycemic carb diet: Sugar Busters: 1. No juice...just roaring waters and sobe lifewater. 2. Dessert only 2 times a week. No candy or cookies. Use sugar free jello or sugar free pudding with cool whip. REAL FOOD? 3. Whole grains: popcorn, WG bread, brown rice, whole grain pasta, loads of high fiber fruits and veggies. 4. No white carbs Both of my kid's are on the heavier side. They have small waists but broader shoulders and legs. My 5 year old is involved in soccer and swim classes. I am a careful parent (1- 4 oz juice a day, whole grains with some white foods, dessert but not everyday). Have you ever experienced this? Did they thin out? What do you suggest?
  25. I just wanted to say a huge TY to vmsurbat, who told me about the NoS Diet on a post I made last week! I have looked at the website and even bought the book to read on my iPad! For someone like me, this diet is totally do-able. I also joined a "Biggest Loser" - type competition locally. I weighed in and got my body fat reading (ouch!) yesterday. My goal over the 16 weeks of the competition is not to win, but to incorporate some sort of exercise at least 5 days/week, and to lose 25 lbs. Last year's female winner - a good friend of mine - is doing it with me, which helps. Good luck to everyone trying to get fit in the new year!
