Just thought I'd share, I weighed myself today and I lost 3 more pounds! :) It made my day!

Well done folks - anyweight lost is a step towards our goals.

Have pity on me everyone please! I entered a competition some time ago with 'Lindt Australia' chocolate manufacturers - I never win anything so you can imagine my dismay when I hear that I am 1 of 10 peopple picked for the 'Golden Bunny Hunt' - prizes involve chocolate!! My biggesty weakness - why could I not have won the saddle competition I entered.

Guess I will be fattening up my friends instead.

There is an app for iphone and android called "myfitnesspal". i hate diets! but this app simply asks you how much you wanna lose and suggests daily calorie intake each day. simply scan the foods you eat. input any exercise you did for the day and your done. This app dosent tell you what and how to eat. But it becomes addictingly fun! im losing about a pound every two days. And i just tweeked my eating just a bit and walk 30 minutes 3 times a week at the mall.

I'll have to check out my fitness pal...sounds like a good program. My squadron is doing a Biggest Loser contest over here - cash prize...so that's some good motivation there!

I've got that App too, and if you go online with your pc, there is an area somewhat like a social network where you can make "friends" with other people so that you can encourage each other, etc. When you have a "bad" day and eat junk, you can vent to people who understand. I have not found a single person on there who is mean or rude, only supportive people.

The problem I wasn't losing weight is that I wasn't eating enough and I was putting my body in "starvation mode." I struggle to eat the amount of calories it tells me to, but when I do, actually LOSE. Part of the key to keeping the calories down is to not consume the empty ones like Soda, candy, etc. When you make them count with whole grains, and "real" food, your body is more satisfied and doesn't require as much.

Oh that is fate at it's cruelest, right there.

I'm also on the low carb, high protein journey, I've lost 13 pounds since 8th Jan when I started, still got 70 pounds to go, but it's a long journey.
