    Eating fewer calories than you take in is okay as long as you're careful about it. That's a fine line to walk between losing weight (you'll lose muscle before fat, unless you're also exercising) and starving your body. When you starve the body, it goes into survival mode, which prevents you from losing weight (especially fat) and leads to other health issues quickly.

    my fitness pal calculates all that for you based on your energy level and it also adds allotted calories based on the exercise you add in daily.

    I've used it, too. I was adding that, whether someone uses my fitness pal or not.

    YOU GUYS!!! I've lost 3 pounds in 5 days!!
    All I've done is watched my eating habits and been trying to exercise more! I'm super excited just because I was expecting to get on the scale and it be exactly the same- I haven't even really been eating much less than normal, just watching my portions and the "boredom snacking". I've been getting in 30 minutes or so of exercise a day, so its definitely been helping!

    OH GOSH I'M SO HAPPY

    I haven't read through everything, but I did notice the pictures you posted and your really shouldn't be so self-conscious. You don't look fat to me, but I know that body changes feel much more significant to the person who lives in the body than to anyone else.

    The most important thing is to be healthy, which leads me to what I would suggest as a "diet". If you munch on things when you are bored, then make them healthy things like fruits and veggies. You're not going to gain weight by munching on veggies and if they aren't as tasty to you as other snacks, maybe that's a good thing Make sure that every meal you eat is made at home, not frozen pre-made, out of a box or can or fast food, but made at home from whole ingredients. It's more work, but so much healthier for you. Use lots of veggies, very little dairy or meat and less carbs. You can still have some pasta, bread or whatever carbs you like, just make sure it is not the main thing in your diet.

    If you feel like people are judging you then I wouldnt consider that to be a great barn to be at. My barn is like a lil family & there are a cpl of us bigger girls there and its never been an issue, I've recently started using weight watchers and I love it. I never feel hungry & it encourages you to eat. I've lost 5 pds already and its only been a week. Im trying to only weigh myself every two weeks to give it time to work plus I work at my barn so I count that as my work out as well as my lessons. (with another job no time for real workouts lol ) & that is working just fine. I always count my ride as a workout, because it def is. Don't let anyone make you feel inferior about your weight, because 160 really is not that bad. I can't wait to be 160 lol just concentrate on your love of riding instead of others opinions and eat healthy :) its not so much about counting calories as it is changing your lifestyle.

    You said you had an eating disorder so be careful with counting calories. It becomes all too easy to eat too few calories in an attempt to lose a few extra pounds. If it becomes a bit of a trigger for you then stop.

    I read an article once where it said to make doing bad things harder and good things easier. Don't buy those foods that you overeat on if you can help it. Or make a rule you will eat your portion and then drink a glass of water or go for a walk around the block. Then if you still want it after have a bit more.

    I know you mentioned you don't want a book, but please, please read The Maker's Diet by Jordan Rubin. He talks about eating the way your body is designed to eat, and getting back to optimal health. You will get to your healthy weight, feel better, and be free from most health problems. Please give it a try! I'm working on it right now! It's great!
