Best of luck!!

Yes swapping out soda for water and juice is a great option.

A low-cal snack is edamame (soybeans) and they're actually really good. Worth trying. Don't cut out everything because then you'll have intense cravings. Cut back on things.. like for me I have treats once or twice a week.. including chips. I eat lots of fruit and that paired with working out keeps my weight down.

Good luck, you can do it!!

It is hard, but so far so good. Made myself a salad for dinner. Lettuce tomatoes, cucumbers, bacon, chicken and grated cheeese with a little low calorie dressing. Mmmm so good!

Hey Hailey!

I am going to lend you some advice on weight loss because I just lost 74 lbs myself! First I want to say that it is great that want to change your habits.

What you need to do is think about what you eat and drink on a daily basis. What I did when I started in September was eliminating calories where I could. I also cut down on the carbs that I ate. For example, when my parents made a dinner, instead of reaching for the rolls and butter, I made myself a small salad with a light dressing.

A huge part of my success (I believe) was implementing chobani greek yogurt into my diet. I eat it at breakfast, with my lunch and as an afternoon snack. It contains zero fat, and is loaded with calcium, protein, vitamins and probiatics which help regulate your stomach tract. Greek yogurt is not only tasty, it also takes a while for your body to digest, which means your hunger waves are less frequent. Try to stay away from juices, because although they are good for you, they contain a huge amount of calories.

I stay strict on my diet sunday-thursday. I still eat fairly healthy on my cheat days (friday and saturday). On friday nights I have pizza and beer. On saturday I go out to eat. Your cheat days could be on another day if that works for you.

Once you get good dieting habits in line, it will be like you don't even think about it when you do it. Then try to increase your activity. I will tell you that you will lose 1-2 to possibly 5 pounds a week. You won't reach your target weight tomorrow, but just keep telling yourself you will make it to your goal.

Last july,I was at my doctors office and I laughed when he said I should get down to 220lbs. Well now I am 187, down from 261 lbs. You will surprise yourself with how well you do. This time last year, I thought I would never be looking into riding. I always thought my weight got the best of me. Not anymore :)

Good luck and keep me posted! If I can do it, anyone can!

Yeah Greek Yogurt with blueberries, chia seeds, and bits of bitter chocolate = omg.

I love it.. or try it with strawberries and chia seeds. Or even plain.. or with your baked potatoes

I wanted to add to my posting that although you are lactose intolerant, you still may be able to eat it. The probiotics inside the greek yogurt break down the lactose molecules so it wouldn't harm your stomach!

Thanks so much guys! I also have pills that I can take to counter the effects that dairy has on me. I'm spending the week at a ranch riding about 6 horses a day and various other ranch work, aaand I've been eating healthy. I'm so excited to weigh in when I get home!

I second the Greek Yogurt. Organic is better, and try it plain with things like chia/etc when you can. Stay away from granola as it is pretty fatty.

You will be surprised how well Greek yogurt subs for sour cream and even mayo. I sometimes have it blended in with a protein drink along with Sea Greens and it is wonderful. A very dynamic food indeed.

Cheering you on, buddy!

Well, the weigh in from this weekend isnt as low as I would have liked, but I keep telling myself. Muscle weighs more than fat! I lost 3 pounds over the week while riding 6 horses a day
