It's my 5th day doing weight loss again. It's also my 1st day doing the thinchallenge.

I wasn't hungry today but I had a lot of calories. Probably around 1200. Which seems normal but actually since I'm in-between jobs & I just graduated from college, I haven't had anything over 900 calories in weeks.

So I feel really, really bloated right now. I probably should have taken it slow & eased into this lifestyle...

Anyway! Here's what I'm trying to do to cure my motivation problems:
1. Keeping a picture of myself when I was 130ish on my desk next to my computer.
2. This chick lost 90 lbs!!! I can freaking lose 40, c'mon!!
3. Keeping a journal again.

Boo I hate trying to lose weight. This time I don't feel like I'm completely in it. Why can't I do this? This is what I want! Gr!

Also I need to start walking everyday many times a day. & biking. I never leave my house. That isn't a great idea! Also, when I move, I want to move to a place that I can walk to places or at least bike. Save me gas & save me from this situation again.

Other: Well I've been trying to lose weight for about a year & a half now. My weight goes from around 165 to 150 then I get depressed with my plateau & I stop losing weight. Then I gain it all back. My main problem is motivation. That is my only struggle, really. Staying motivated. About two year ago when I was 20, I weighed 128 lbs. I felt amazing. I could go out in a bikini, I felt good with my body. That may seem a high height-weight ratio but actually, I have huge boobs so it just fits me, haha!

Anyway, I'm back on the wagon. Looking for more motivation.

I know this place is dead but hopefully my posts will inspire someone else one day. :]

Haha, I'm one of those really cool college kids. I'm currently attending a small private art college for photography and I'm a vegetarian. I'm excited about this community! Haha although it looks dead? But I'm guessing it just needs some faithful posters to get it back up and running. Sweet. Well if there is anyone out there, let's get this raw food/diet party started! (:

I have been battling an ED for about 4 years now and have been dealing with anorexia on and off since freshman year of high school. I am a swimmer and swimming is the one thing that keeps me in shape. I would love to lose weight and keep it off-forever. I'm not very good at talking about myself, but if anyone wants to know anything, they can contact me.

Drinks and staying hydrated [27 Aug 2007|03:21pm]

As we all know, drinking and staying hydrated is hella important for your weightloss and health! But, as we all also know water tastes boring. I think we need a list of low fat/sugar/whatever drinks that have additatives to help you stay hydrated that dont taste boring. That should include hot and cold drinks.

There are alot of drinks other than water that give you awesome nutrients but dont have any effect of weight with sugar and preservatives/additives and stuff. I want to make a list for future refrence.
The list and the factsCollapse )

Hi guys :) I guess when you're doing the whole weight loss thing, it's always nice to have support and I find it here! I guess I'm not exactly overweight persay, but compared to others of the same height/sex/race as me (I'm Asian btw), I feel overweight. So I guess, you could yell at me and say that I'm doing this for vanity's sake, which I will not deny because it is part of the reason. :( Moreoverly though (is that a word haha), I feel that this change will allow me to lift my head not only on my "good" days, but "everyday". I want to obtain not a pervasive confidence, but a shine that I myself can truly be proud of.

I think I'm just going to start with

1. lower caloric intakes with healthier foods of course... (I'll try :P)
2. more excercise [(my normal excersize is about 40-60 minutes of walking around campus total per day and an hour of competitive tennis about 2 times a week (the weather's cold now :()...and I want to add on more jogging (3o minutes a day) and start my ab excerises again...I stopped jogging about a year and a half ago because I wanted thinner calves and thighs and I got them, but seriously, can't really lose weight permanently without some form of cardio....]
3. smaller meals and eating them more frequently through the day....no food after 6, no water after 9....
4. Lot's of fluids because I'm also fighting a slight acne war at the same time...and because water is water. I can't live without fluids...
5. uh...try not to think about this too much because a) when you think about food too much, they're like boys...the more you think about them, the more you miss them...and b) I have finals coming up hahahaha.
6. Don't weigh in weekly, but look for physical changes on 12/14 (back home) and then 12/22 (right before vacation time). This would be because I don't actually own a scale in my apartment and also because the unstable water weight measurement can be really depressing sometimes...I would rather hold my breath and get a big big surprising change :)

yeah, sorry for the ramble :)

Good luck to all those out there!!!!!

Photo of yourself:
Other: I reached 124 over the summer but for some reason I gained a lot of weight, and then recently I've started to gain even more weight, I'm thinking it's because I'm going to start my period on Saturday.. I have no idea.

I have a question: I really am not sure why, but after I run or exercise I don't look thinner, I look bigger.. like everything on my body becomes all bloated. Why? I run almost everyday, I can't run on Tues & Thurs because I'm busy and by the time I get home it's too dark. So on Mondays, Wednesdays, and sometimes Fridays I run 40 minutes straight; when I stop to walk, the clock stops. But i dont know, it just feels like I'm getting bigger rather than losing weight like I want to. And I'm not one of those people that say "well I ran today so I can eat more.." I don't eat more when I exercise more. if anything, i eat less.

another question: what are your ratings on plain yogurt? and what are good protein drinks because I don't eat much meat, only chicken and tuna really

I'm trying to keep my identity as secretive as possible, I really hope that's not a problem...

I'm going to try out this diet and then post my results and pictures when I feel comfortable.. and, I'm here for support and I'm really hoping to get some support from the rest of you all in the community :]
