Cabbage leaves make a good wrap, too.

Num num aforred! Never thought to use cabbage as a wrap great idea!
I've used lettuce before but it can come out kinda messy.

Slide stop your fiber one wraps sound like my low carb wraps they are 80cals and 6carbs...Lots of fiber 12g and 8protein.
I do the same w/my tuna mix

I had one low carb wrap with 2egg whites this morning for breakfast..Then I'll have the tuna wrap later...Thats it for me today, I'll count to 500cals and be done..Carbs usually run me around to 20 total on down days.."so don't worry about those to much".
Tomorrow is my low carb up day-calories at 2000 and carbs to 20-25.
Yay I think I am on it now I just need to make a short goal.
Taking my walk now soon as I get off of here.
Hope your all doing great and sticking to your plans!

How has everyone been doing? I'm down to 186, and I'm really happy with that right now. Almost 10 pounds!

Things are getting better for me finally.
I agreed with my husband that I would only weigh in on the 1st of every month. I did really well with eating over the holiday weekend. Now to just get to the exercise.

I'm at a stand still. =\ I'm kinda slacking on the weight watchers, though I do try to eat less/better.

Better late than never.
I'm new here, but what brought me here was being an overweight rider looking for information. I found AfatgirlAfathorse on youtube -I believe she's a member here too-, which led to me googling 'plus size horse rider' which led me here!

I've tried to lose weight several times over the years, but in the end the lure of steak and cheese cake won over any motivators I ever had.
But now I know the problem. Boys and new clothes are not worth the effort.

But a horse is.
At the barn where I ride, there's a TWH mare called Shade Tree. I'm utterly smitten with her and as long as my time's free, it's spent with her, just sitting and talking.
I really really love her.
Problem is, I'm massive and she's not. Lol. She could actually stand to gain some weight and muscle.
I will not ride her until I lose weight. I can't. I won't. I tried, and we were both immediately uncomfortable. Ride lasted 45 seconds.

So, I've decided that I ever want to ride her, I need to be the right size for it. I don't know how much I currently weigh but I know it's too much, well over 200. So, tomorrow I'm going to start off on this long, aggravating road that will hopefully get me somewhere I really wish to be with this animal.

I think this photo really shows how long her back and legs are. Seriously super model legs. I don't think it's fair or safe for me to ride her right now.

Welcome PastureSongs.

Don't think of it as a "long, aggravating road", think of it as a new, healthy lifestyle. It is hard, I struggle everyday because I LOVE food.

You know what would be good for both of you? If you can ground drive Shade Tree (if she ground drives). Think about it your spending time with her, she is getting a workout to get those muscles back, and your getting a workout walking behind her. That is what I am starting this week with my Haffie.

I'm Jess. I am 97kg last I checked. I don't ride my horses that often as they live 11 hours drive away from me. I do have a border collie x kelpie called Ruby who lives with me though. I am really sad with my weight and unlike girls my age, im not overly pretty. I have struggled with weight for the past few years and would really like to loose at the least, 30kg. PM me :)

I'm down to 161.5 pounds.

Welcome PastureSongs!

Ladygodiva has the right attitude. I'm not going to lie, it does feel very much like a long and aggravating road to me at times, but it's so, so worth it.

Lindo and Venus, don't think that way! I'm sure you're pretty. I know it can be hard as an overweight person, my self-esteem has been in the toilet more than it should've been in my life. But remember, to make a weight loss journey truly worth it and long-lasting, you should learn to love yourself along the way.

I'm going to get a bike soonish, so I'm pretty excited for that!
