    Yep.. thats my problem. I was brought up in a "clean your plate" family.
    We ate a veggie, meat, and a side, usually noodles or potatoes. We ate dessert too. This is the mode Im in now It is all "convience" food too. Noodle Roni and such.

    I need to retrain myself now and find filling healthy foods that wont break the bank and still satisfy myself and a 17 year old boy.

    My husband was as well. I now have him semi-trained that he doesn't have to do that. I like to leave enough food on my plate to have lunch the next day.


    Healthy foods. Do you enjoy cooking? 24Hr Fitness' website has wonderfully easy and good recipes.

    So was I. I was always told that food should never go to waste. I still believe in that, but I realized the way it's supposed to be spelled:

    "Food should never go to waist."

    I had a problem with eating way too much. How I got used to my small portions, without feeling hungry/deprived - I started off with frozen meals, especially the ones by Healthy Choice, Lean Cuisine, and Weight Watchers. Those aren't the best things to eat all the time, but as a start, it helped to shrink my tummy (that took about 3 days, and boy, was I moody), and also helped train my body and mind to recognize those reduced portions as full meals.

    Now, I'm at the point that I can eat/cook whatever and tell at a glance how much is the proper serving size.

    I used to polish off 3-4 scoops of ice cream in one sitting. Now, I can just get through one, and that packs me full. I used to eat a 12-ounce steak without a problem, and now I'm full at less than half of that when dining out. As you can see, I'm certainly not deprived, and I always feel satisfied and full.

    I also only eat until I'm full, but not stuffed. The energy increase is amazing, because my body isn't devoting all of it to processing down excess food.

    Re: Anyone want to join me in a weightloss goal?

    As for 1200 calories a day for me... I'm not gonna do it. I'm listening to my nurse sister who know a lot more about nutrition and such. 1800 is a little more of a realistic diet than the starvation of 1200.

    About 1800 is what I did today and I'm feeling very week and hungry. But, because I can't eat anything for 12 hours before going in to get the scope done, I'll be in hunger pain for the next day!

    Thanks for clarifying. And I like that name; a brown mush burrito

    I eat 4-5 small meals per day, which pretty much eliminates snacking needs. My meals total 200-300 calories each.

    And, I take two days per week to eat up to 2,200 calories, which is a maintenance level for me. That way, I can party/celebrate/indulge, and still keep on track, all the while keeping steady on the weight loss and training myself to eat properly for life.

    I like your plan! Are you giving yourself a reward after meeting a small goal? during Weight Watchers I set up a goal/reward plan. I get myself flowers after I lose 5 pounds and hubby agreed to take me out to a movie after 10. I think I will adopt that policy again.

    Anyway, good luck to you weight losers!!!
    that's funny!!
    Thanks for the well wishes.

    Way to go!

    I have also broken my goals into 10 lbs each. I only have 2 more lbs. to reach my first 10. Trying to reach that last 2 pounds is really keeping me motivated. If I think of it as having to lose another 42, I just feel overwhelmed.
    Agree on feeling overwhelmed... I do better with the small increments.

After a few weeks of eating better and easing into cycling, I weighed in at 295, and 36.5% body fat. It is now about 10 months later, and I am 260 and about 28% body fat. Will know next week for sure. Got a long way to go, but people tell me I no longer look super fat.
    Congrats on the progress and it sounds like a life style change that will never let you get back to that place (my threshold was 205 but after gestational diabetes and being healthy for my little girl I believe that even if I start to fall back in to old habbits, I will never get back to that level).

    Re: Anyone want to join me in a weightloss goal?

    Day two - No outward signs of stress yet.

    I'm thinking a 1/2 Mile walk (each way) to the Sushi bar for lunch might not be a bad plan. Sushi can't be too bad can it? Humm perhaps I better google that one just in case....

    Also has anyone read or tried the "You on a diet" book/program? I'm thinking of picking up a copy today. The big 'O' herself seems to speak highly of it.

    I saw a short article on it, based on that breakfast today was a 1 Cup serving of high fiber cereal with frozen blueberries on top and some skim milk. Quite tasty if I do say so myself.

    I must've got appointments mixed up. They did ultrasound on me.

    Good news! I'm not pregnant!

    Took my blood, too. Waiting for results.

    Depends on what you order...you can do some serious calorie damage if you're not careful. Sashimi is really good since it's just raw fish and you can dip it in the soy sauce and wasabi , but use the loo sodium version. If you want to get even lower on sodium , you can dip it in Braggs Aminos which taste almost as good. Don't get tempura or anything else that's deep fried. If you get a salad , make sure it's not drenched in the peanut dressing, but some dressing is fine. And sunomono is good since it's mostly cucumbers and rice vinegar. White rice is high on the glycemic index if you'e trying to keep your blood sugar down, so I wouldn't sit there and eat the entire bowl of it, but a little bit in the sushi rolls ia proabably okay. And miso soup is good for you, but again, high in sodium so drink lots of water with lemon in it to help counteract it. I go out for sushi pretty often and I never lose weight from it, but I never gain weight from it either and I always feel really good after I eat it!

    I bet the 1/2 mile walk each way for it is what will make you lose weight. Hmmmm, maybe I should start walking to get my sushj since it's about 2 1/2 miles away from my house!

    Good job surviving da 2 by the way!

    Yeah, I really like the crispy tempura shrip they serve, but today it's cancel the shrimp and add a miso soup in it's place.

    Thanks.

    Ca'Ching!

    Another great benefit to all this healthy eating. Some of the fat is going into my wallet. I'm saving between $2 and $8 a day just on lunch!

    So with that new found wealth, I went and got me a $1 Megamillions ticket. Please root for 17 19 39 41 49 [27] in the big drawing tonight!
