i see there's an exercising-type journal thread going on (keep it up, ladies and gent!
), so i thought i'd start this for just diet in general.

to sum it up, i lost 35 lbs. over a year and a half ago, gained most back, and now i'm ready to take it off - and keep it off!

i see glamslam is doing very well on her nutrisystem diet, but is there anyone else on a diet to lose weight and not maintain? maybe i've overlooked it...


here, we can support, vent, etc. about our diets.

i'm starting tomorrow (7/1) and this time i'm determined, unlike the past year.

here's my approach...

  • subscribe to fitness magazine (did that when i was on my first diet and it totally worked/helped)
  • exercise
  • try to educate myself on food, calories, etc.
  • reward myself once a month (hellllllo, big macs!) - ONLY IF I'M DOING WELL! i did that last time and having that one big mac got me over all of my unnecessary food urges
  • drink nothing but water or OJ (in the morning only)
this website also helped me out SO much...
http://diet.ivillage.com/

there are TONS of articles and help.

oh, and whoever said you can't lose weight without working out lied! all i did was walk about 2 miles a day and i was fine. however, since i work 5 days a week now, being a waitress, i'm on the go constantly, which will help, which is why i'll also be investing in a pedometer, even though i know those steps will count. i'd just like to reassure myself.

okay, that was long. sorry


who's with me?

good luck on the weight loss jen! i too am trying to lose weight. my diet has gotten MUCH better since last year when I was snacking junk food ALL of the time. Now i only have 2 meals with like 2 or 3 snacks which are usually fruit. I need to better my diet still because i still eat not so healthy stuff.
i'm doing the work outs, but i could be losing the weight much faster if i had a better diet.

i'm doing the work outs, but i could be losing the weight much faster if i had a better diet. i know what you mean, but you should really eat 5, small-portioned, healthy, meals a day! that's how you really lose it and adapt that lifestyle.
you're lucky you have access to a gym. i have no way of getting to one, except if i spend $200+ a month getting down to NYC to work out.

thanks and good luck to you, too!

Good luck to everyone dieting!! I suppose I could spare a few pounds, but I'm really just maintaining. Sometimes I have these compulsive eating days. I need to get a hold on myself when that happens because I'll eat nothing but chocolate and sugar all day.
