Hi Jue, Im sure we'll all do well, feel so positive when reading other peoples successes on here! Im sure it'll be hard, but Ive gotta do it this time, just gaining more weight every month and Im worried that if I dont do something im not goin to be fit enough to run around and play with my little one.
I know what you mean about the smoking, I gave up and have not stopped eating!!! Will all be worth it tho, to be slimmer and smoke free"!!
Take care, and I look forward to your progress!
Luv, Pamela xx
I can so identify with you girls. Stick with the not smoking. You are doing the right thing tackling the weight issue NOW. I gave up the weed 3 years ago, when I was 2 stone overweight, I keept saying "I'll deal with the weight later". Its now THREE YEARS later and I'm now 5 stone overweight. Dont make my mistake. I know what you mean about 'I must have something', unfortunately I cant think of anything that takes the place of food or nicotine, except booze and thats got calories in it! My intention is to log on here when things are getting rough. It seems the members are very caring and sharing. Were all in the same boat. Good luck.
hi newbies.im newish myself been on xenical for a month, tomorrow 1st weigh in .post lots and read through the diaries there is loads of advise there and cooking tips.everyone is so nice and friendly here .speak soon xxxxx
Well I've been on the tablets 1 week and have only lost 1 and 1/2 lbs. Not the resounding success I was hoping for. I think I know the causes. 1) I forgot to take the tablet 4 times over the week.
2) I didnt count calories, just fat grams.
3) I had home made steak & kidney pie at my Aunties on
Thursday. Missed tablet on purpose.
4) Had a couple of glasses of wine every night. (Nil fat)
From today I am going to record everything I eat, from reading the posts it seems the best thing to do. I've got a little book which lists the calories and fat in food, so I am going to stick to 1400 cals per day.
BLOODY HELL!! I thought I was doing well - 637 cals and 18.6 grams of fat!!! Although, this IS breakfast and lunch combined so its not too bad, just a shock when you work it out. Can it be correct that eggs have all that fat?
I have just had my calories worked out at a site
recommended by Kae and it is 1200 per day.
Homemade shepherds pie, low fat mince, no butter in the mash. 350cals - 10.1g
veg - nil
Snack - rice cakes 100 cals - 2g
This is all OK till later when I was so hungry I ate the other half of the shepherds pie. 350cals- 10g
Totals for Sunday. 1437cals - 40.8g fat
Its not easy sticking to the calories, not counting them was the reason for my small loss last week.
Hey Lizzie, a 1 an 1/2 lb is still a loss, especially if you missed some tabs. Watch the calories in the wine tho its full of them. I ditch wine altogether when Im dieting, I have vodka and diet coke instead (not that I get to drink that often with a toddler!!) WW used to do a range of wine, not sure how good it is tho! xx
