It's impressive when someone publicly declares a goal like this one. You go, NapCat!

One thing to watch: sometimes if you start an exercise routine concurrent with the diet, the actual weight loss isn't quite what you hope it might be. That's because you put on muscle, and muscle is way denser than fat. When you're replacing fat with muscle, the pounds may not drop off really fast. So you might want to consider taking some measurements and tracking the inches you lose, too. Having more metrics can be comforting when you encounter those weight-loss plateaus, which always seems to happen when you try to lose weight.
Thanks for the support and advice !!

So far today: yogurt this morning and a package of nuts this afternoon. Trying to conserve for Mexican at a restaurant tonight. I've convinced myself no beans and no rice. Tostada.

This sure is hard when one is a stress eater...
No stress is allowed on Day 1 !

Good for you! I've been trying to lose weight for quite awhile and it's been tough. I do exercise almost every day so I hope between that and better eating habits I'll be okay.

I work in foodservice, and we have GOOD BUT FATTY food around us all the time. I really need to start ignoring it...
How can you possibly ignore food all around you ? gasp ! You may have the biggest challenge of all of us on the venture.
Good Luck

NapCat - It's really, really tough, which is why I've got 30 pounds on me that I don't need. Gotta resist, though. Can't keep going on like this.
Oh Erin ((HUG)) Don't we all know !? Glad you joined us, we can do this together !

My nutritionist tells me to eat beans and rice. As a matter of fact, I've lost almost 30 pounds in the past two months eating a lot of her turkey and bean chili. And on the off nights I have brown rice with spaghetti sauce on it.

I could post the chili recipe later tonight if anyone is interested.

The Lose-a-Pound-a-Week Club

I have promised my doctor (and myself) that I would lose 50 pounds over the next year……one pound a week should be very doable.

Please join me in this “Lighthearted” venture...my approach is to take “baby steps” to change my habits. No specific diet or extreme regime… just move to healthier eating and exercise, by making a lifestyle change each week.
...
I will happily join you. Since I need to lose more than 50 pounds, a Pound-A-Week is a great goal. I certainly agree with "No specific diet or extreme regime… just move to healthier eating and exercise, by making a lifestyle change each week."

I would love to have that chili recipe. Do you think it would work with chicken?

Ohhhh! I want to lose a pound a week!

I even joined a gym. Haven't gone yet, but I joined! (ok, to be fair, it's a new one and it opened yesterday...)

I'm also training for the Susan G. Komen 3 Day again...but I did that last year and in all those miles, I didn't lose a freaking thing. I'm guaranteed to lose something this year, but mostly just my dignity, as there's a promise involving pink spandex and a cape...

But yeah! I wanna lose!

Delighted to have you aboard Anna, but I am concerned for "Things 1 & 2"....are they destined to a "Chilly" [sic] demise ?? Ha!

If you all don't mind, I think I will join you.  ;D

My goal for today is to get at least 10,000 steps in.  Since I usually only get 4,000 a day, that's a good hour or so (at least) of walking/jogging in place.

yeah for those who've become healthier!  I went to the dr today and found that I've lost another 10lbs (morning sickness does not end when the morning does), but since I'm "well padded" (ie overweight) the dr isn't concerned.  I'm not either.  I did this w/ DD (I can only eat a small amount until I start feeling sick) and she's healthy.

Can we talk kilograms as well? I started 2 months ago, grossly overweight at 110 kilograms. With my bloodpressure and all, I had to lose about 20 kilo.
I do one of these shakes and bars diets, hardbut not too crazy, and I've already lost 14 kilo in 2 months.

Exercise helps (I bike a lot), and drinking lots of water. Lots. Again going by the metric system, I drink about 3 liters per day.

Good luck, you all!
