Hey, just wanted to add that you gain and lose 5 pounds a day... so 3 pounds is nothing. Make sure you weigh yourself at the same time of day.. prefferably after you go to the bathroom. XD

Weight Loss Gaining at 1,200 calories Nov 10 2009

Are you saying that you gain when you eat over 1,200 calories because you've weighed yourself or because CC says so? I mean, of course you're gonna gain cause you've just eaten. Everybody gains when they've eaten because food has weight too. If you're still scared of gaining, you can always exercise. I hear that it burns calories.

Perhaps it is the unrealistic standards that modern society sets for us which we tend to believe and strive to achieve....

Once people get past the "airbrushed standards" and realize that they are humans... each beautiful in his or her own way... only then can they view themselves in a realistic, true mindset... :)

of course, it's easier said than done... i have a low self esteem as well...

i feel you

I think that the only person who can answer that question is you...

you should know your own physical abilities and if you know you can do it, then do it if you want.

Weight Loss How to conquer fruit binges? Jun 19 2009

well, i gotta say, fruit binges are better than the chocolate and egg roll binges i go on :) but, i would recommend buying a variety of fruit-- skip cherries and strawberries if it bothers you- and eating those fruit... or make a fruit salad where you eat a variety of different fruit + your faves

vanessa, of course you can join! and that's great that you've lost so much weight already!!! wow. I can't wait to get rid of those ugly bra bumps...and about the bikini... I went shopping yesterday.... yeah, I just couldn't do it. I bought a tankini too... the bikini will have to wait till next year:)

congrats on the baby! I love children, and I'm sure she (or he:) is worth all the effort :)

lisa, I'm a cheese freak too!!!! omg... but when I add it into my daily calories, its worth so much! I'm going to go look for the laughing cow cheese... I heard laughing cow has great low fat, low cal ice cream:) might get some of that too!

justme, my brother bought a wendy's frosty today... I was so tempted to take it away from him... but I didn't.

btw, its been about 5 days since I began dieting.. (I cheated last night :(

today though I feel kind of sick... I can't even look at food, and the smell of food makes me nauseous (except for ice cream) do you guys think I'm doing something wrong? i'm trying to eat moderately, i don't starve myself.idk

dispatchn, hypoglycemia..wow, that must be really tough. I have a friend who's hypoglycemic...for every snack she just eats a bunch of fruits and veggies...or nuts. don't give up!

lisa, that's great! I'm doing the same thing. I'm eating around 1,600 calories, trying to eat less, and I walk and swim and I'm doing core exercises. Also, I do Pilates. If anyone is interested, it's a really great workout and it forces you to breath and relax while building and lengthening the muscle.

I have a thing with cheese... is it ok to eat while dieting or not? is it considered a healthy food?

I just made some really good stir-fry type food:

1 cup brocolli

1/2 zuchinni

1/4 pepper

30 medium-sized shrimp

1/4 tsp. sea salt

spices like pepper or oregano or dill... w/e u want

fry with canola or pam

 

This barely makes 200 cal but its so filling, you can add more veggies and still have enough cal left over for desert!
