Well, I got on the scale and almost blew it up at 215. The funny thing is, I have been actually doing a little bit of PT for a back problem, and eating less. My tummy, formerly fairly round, is slimming down. And yet I gained 5 lbs!

Since I am starting to get in the exercise habit anyway, I have also decided to cut out most processed sugars, especially pop, and refined grain products. Going to stick to lean meat, chicken, fish, and fresh fruits and vegetables. I also ditched my chocolate stash and bought 4 six packs of fruit cups for breakfasts, and some other fresh fruit today.

I LOVE chocolate, this is going to be difficult. I am thinking if I treat myself to one item a week, that will make it more tolerable. Any pointers?

Also, I am under the impression that grains are the main source of fiber. How do I stay away from breads and cereals and still make sure I get PLENTY of fiber?

Seriously my big food problem is sweets like chocolate chip cookies or the like.

Nver crave fast food or pizza but sweets are my flaw.

Good move but diet is a bigger factor for Lipid Profile.

SWitch to WHOLE grains...Do NOT eat white anything (rice/pasta/bread) Whole grains have more fiber, more protein and lower carbs...
FRUIT...there's a whole lotta fiber in fruit...
Do not rule out food groups because you are doomed to fail: you'll always be wanting what you can't have.
I'm female. Depriving me of chocolate could result in bodily injury...so I don't NOT eat it at all...everything in moderation.
Lastly, if you're weight training, discard your scale and gauge your progress by how your clothes fit, not by your weight..remember, muscle weighs more than fat.

ETA: Good luck and stick with it and you'll be glad you did!

Who's getting injured? You? Whoever is standing between you and the chocolate?


I did pretty good with my "diet" of just eating LESS....still eat whatever I want, I just don't eat as much of it. Started walking for an hour each evening (around the neighborhood and a park, so I have hills and stuff). PlaymoreMinds has good advice for following a diet though.

Dropped down to 245 from 280 in about 5 months. Now I'm stuck at 245 regardless of what I do (diet. excersise, nothing really matters much) I'm not happy, but I can live with it.
