Happened to me on Saturday, I ate a piece of REALLY sweet chocolate the kind that makes you cough its THAT sweet, and I started laughing and told my mom that my body was rejecting it from the amount of coughing I was doing.  Then I felt like crap for the rest of the day, my stomach hurt, my head hurt, it really wasn't worth it.  Just for the record two years ago that chocolate would have tasted fabulous but this time around I was like ew really? That's what this tastes like? I'll pass next time.

My thoughts when it comes to a night of drinking (not that I'm condoning a 19 year old getting obliterated but I did it myself at that age) is to write it off, don't give it a second thought and get back on the horse the next day.  Also don't step on the scale because you're likely dehydrated and it'll give you a lower number (usually) then what it should be.  Drink alot of water today, gatorade if you need it, and get back to counting as you normally would.  You can guess all you want at what you drank last night but it's going to be absolutly that, a guess and probably not a great one at that.  If I go out for a night of drinking then I call it an "oops" day and go back to normal the following morning.  Don't sweat it too much.

Well I hate to tell you this but mine actually look worse, I'm down 60 pounds and instead of just looking like faint lines where the skin stretched they now puff out because the skin isn't stretched anymore and that spot where it did had no where to go but...out.  It's not pretty I'll tell you that much but I kind of look at them as battle scars, I did this, and now I have to deal with them looking different.  Sorry girlie some fade but I was a big girl and 60 pounds lighter made them more obvious then they were before.

Weight Loss anyone lose weight from site? Feb 10 2010

Also lost 60 and trying to lose another 100, the site is great it keeps me on track and any problem you come across can usually be found in the forums.  If not ask for help and boom you've got a band a cheerleaders bringing it for you.  You are responsible for what happens with your weight, you can use this as a wonderful tool but make sure you're doing the work as well, that means reading what your food comes in because sometimes things here are a little off and staying on track.  We all screw up sometimes but ask for help and its here.

Weight Loss Will I lose weight with this? Feb 07 2010

To the OP I think 1700 is a good place to start I wouldn't go lower with that especially with all the exercise you're planning on doing (good for you) but that can absolutly vary with the amount of time you spend exercising and what specifically you're doing.  For your age I wouldn't go lower then 1700 right now, you're probably burning (and this is just a guess) around 2100-2200 calories not doing any exercise so watch that carefully and do not make the deficit too large or it'll be hard to stick to.  I don't know you're absolute specifics with exercise so I'm just guessing here. 

Cherrygirl18....5'5" and 85 pounds?  Sorry to be blunt here but I really don't think you should be giving someone advice to cut down to 1500, she's 15 years old so she needs about 1500 at a minimum without exercising.  You need to check specifics before suggesting someone consume the minimum amount of calories they would need to function.

Seriously if the stuff worked then everyone would take it once and be done with the weight issue.  Go figure most of us have tried everything under the sun and end up resorting to (wait for it) diet and exercise.  If pills worked then those companies would no longer be in business as everyone would take them lose the weight and boom no need for more pills (which would mean the company that makes them goes under) it's all a scam to get your money.  They might raise your heart rate and make you jittery which would make you burn a few calories...hmmmm what else does that....oh now I remember, cocaine.  These conversations make me want to shake someone I've heard so many of them.

I was completely utterly and totally baffled that they didn't vote Tracey out.  Morons.

I have to say that I did like her husband on the video though.

 Agreed on both.  I literally yelled WHAT?! when she got to pick the teams and team or no team they should have booted her out, maybe I'm petty and maybe I'm immature whatever I would have written her name down

I was a size 20, 5'3" and sounds about right to me.  Don't be upset just do something about it (I did and now I'm a size 16 and 60 pounds lighter).  Do not depend on your clothes though in some stores I'm a 16 in some I'm a 14 in some I'm a 20 (forget 18s those never work either way), you can't count on your clothes as a reliable measurement system.  The scale is most likely right.
