I would look at pictures of my enemy and tell myself that even if she looks better than me, my heart is much more beautiful than hers. Inner beauty is always more important!

Do not deprive yourself of your favourite food because that may lead to binging. Eat a small amount of chocolate everyday and eat a proper amount of salad with minimal dressing. Eating your greens will lean meat will ensure that you will get protein, too. :D

Weight Loss BIG Breakfasts Jan 20 2009
06:53 (UTC)

I can never eat heavy breakfasts. My appetite is sluggish in the morning and if I eat a lot for breakfast, I will feel bloated and stuffed. I always balance out my calories so I will eat lots of small and regular meals.

You can drink a glass of fresh juice or eat a small bowl of frozen fruits to fill you up. :) Anything with fibre is pretty filling too.

Weight Loss Questions about stretchmark and skin hanging down Jan 20 2009
06:48 (UTC)

I don't think it's entirely possible to avoid stretchmarks. Lotions and creams are available off the shelf but they aren't exactly 100% effective too. Surgery seems like the best option, really.

Your body either loses muscle, fat or water. I have problems losing excess junk on my hips too. =_=

Weight Loss Water Weight? Jan 20 2009
06:43 (UTC)

I retain A LOT of water all the time! I guess it is how our bodies work. :\ I feel very uncomfortable when I am having my period, because the water retention gets so bad that I will feel like I have gained a billion pounds.

Weight Loss Approach to dieting? Jan 17 2009

Original Post by cosmographer:

It's really up to you! Can you manage to cut back on chocolate and bread, but still keep them in your diet in reasonable quantities? Or do you just know you're going to overdo it if you even touch them. Personally, I eat a lot of the same stuff (I had pizza for dinner and it was good.) As long as you can keep within your calorie goals and eat relatively healthy (i.e. 100-200 calories of chocolate in a day, not 600), it will be easier long-term if you can learn to eat those yummy foods in moderation. As long as you know you'll be able to moderate!

Also, try not to eat so much junk (eg. chocolate, cupcakes etc.) and sacrifice healthy foods in order to not overshoot your daily caloric intake. You will lack essential nutrients. ;)

Health & Support Lack of sleep and "binging"/ overeating Jan 14 2009
09:43 (UTC)

A month or so ago, I had an average of four to five hours of sleep per night and ate a lot of sugary foods. I gained 4lbs in a week and my tummy was constantly bloated. I believe that the more sleep one has, it is less likely that he or she will overeat/gain weight.
