Weight Loss 900 calories a day, 30lb weight loss goal, 2 weeks into it and feeling fine. Am I stupid? Jun 07 2009

yaza that was mean!
are you trying to give the girl an eating disorder or something by saying enjoy gaining the weight back, there is nothing you can do now.

doll talk to your doc about your diet.
you might just want a bit more calories (and some walking) and i'm sure you'll see continued success with the pounds going down.

good luck to you!

The Lounge Why do people dislike tall women? Jun 07 2009

I'm 5'8" and I wish I were 5'10!!
models are tall for a reason, it looks good!  and heels make you appear more thin - i say wear em if you like!

Weight Loss Help! I'll be scale-less! Jun 07 2009

i was going to say go to bed bath and beyond for weigh ins - use their scales.
but caclbmc suggested that with walmart, same idea.

otherwise your slimmest jeans would be an indicator.
have a nice time in the city!

exercise will help weight loss more then a very low calorie diet - as you've mentioned.  bet you would be better with the 1,200 or 1,300 recommended if you where to just walk briskly for 3 miles a day.
good luck to you.

Fitness Q's about my exercise & what the heck is this "burn meter"?! Jun 03 2009
03:38 (UTC)

well 3,500 calories = 1 pound.  so by having 500 calories less per day thats 1 pound a week 1,000 less is 2 pounds a week.  they say 1% of your body weight is a safe amount to lose per week.

you said 1 mile got you tired.  so start slow.
but then idk maybe 15 minutes would be good, by a month you might feel like 30 would be ok.  go with what feels good - you will see you will find you will want to do it after a month or two!!
i started walking 1 mile a day 15 minutes, after 2 wks or a month i did 2 miles (30 minutes) a day, now i do walk/jog 3 to 5 miles (1 hr) a day (sometimes i add a second 2 mile walk at night and i did this from month 2 on).
honestly i think the extra activity helped me out the most, losing weight.

i don't know i always have the i want to eat less feeling also.

and i'm soon to be in maintnence mode myself so i do not know what to expect either.  but i've seen most people say there is an initail gain, so you likely won't gain anymore.

well welcome to cc!

both numbers should match if you want to maintain.

to lose weight you want the eat meter 500-1,000 less than the burn meter. (that would be to lose 1-2 pounds a week).

every week i think it would be ok to increase mileage by 10%.  or 10% more in time.

good luck to you.

Motivation I need a low calorie but somewhat filling snack!!! Jun 03 2009
02:05 (UTC)

fiber one cereal is very filling.  so is go lean crunch.  both ave a good amount of fiber.

i do baby carrots for a snack often.  with the walden farms thousand island dressing which claims to be 0 calorie.  sometimes a fat free slice of mozzarella.

fruit works well too.

i was doing the celery in salsa for a while.

a good 200 calorie snack/meal is boca burgers a tiny spray of pam olive oil with dill weed and garlic powder. (70 cal burger - 9 cal spray or thats how i count it)
with a whole wheat english muffin (120 cals)  works well. a decent amount of fiber and protien.

the olean chips taste just as good in my opinion and like half the cals i don't know if they make doritoes though...
