What are some of your embarassing/emotional/eye opening reasons for loosing weight?
I don't want to have to mentally prepare myself to mount my horse. After 18 years of riding, I ought to just be able to vault on up, but my weight makes this too difficult. I want to be able to walk into a tack shop and buy myself a dressage coat, instead of having to order one specially made. I want to be able to go shopping without having to take a Xanax first because I'm so anxious that nothing is going to fit. I want to feel sexy in lingerie, instead of wanting to hop into bed and pull the covers up to my chin. I'm sure my husband would appreciate this as well... I have a family history of heart disease and diabetes, and I'd like to avoid those things.

What Do You Love About Your Life?
I love that God is mindful of me; that I can look over the course of my life thus far and see that He has always been with me. I love my faith. I love my husband, who upholds me and encourages me, and loves me just the way I am. I love my furkids, Amber Joy the lazy dog and Maggie Mae the sweet cat. I love the horses who are part of my life and who loan me grace and deeper freedom.

What do you truly wish for yourself besides weight loss?
I would love to be certified in EAP (Equine-Assistive Psychotherapy) to help people like me, who have been abused. Horses are such great therapy! I want to own a little farm somewhere with enough room for a few horses and some dairy goats and chickens. I want to grow a garden full of tomatoes and asparagus and sunflowers, big ones! I have always been happier in the country than the city. I would like to make my living somewhere where my husband and I can be happy and raise a family... even if it's just a family of horses, goats, chickens and big dang sunflowers.

Greek yogurt vs regular yogurt?
I love Greek yogurt! It is thicker and creamier. It is also tangier, so I recommend eating it with just a bit of honey. Don't stir the honey in, or you'll end up with the same consistency of regular yogurt, and what fun would that be? Dip the tip of your spoon into the honey, then get a spoonful of yogurt. It's also great with berries or melon, and makes a wonderful substitute for sour cream.

Beautiful cooking blog...
I am all for trying new recipes, so I signed up for Gojee. The first day, I was directed to a beautiful recipe for Mango-Avocado salad (which I am making tomorrow). It came from the blog of a vegetarian woman who takes such beautiful pictures that you can almost imagine that changing your lifelong habits isn't going to be hard at all, especially if you can make things like this. I promise, she's not related to me. Until yesterday, I didn't know her from Eve, but I thought it would be worth it to mention her blog site to give everyone some fresh new recipes. www.fresh365.com

I am In Need of Prayers because I am Haveing major Health issues
Channing, please see a doctor. You should not be vomiting every night, and your stomach should not be going anywhere. I think you know this. That being said, you are in my prayers, and I will submit you to the prayer list at the temple. (I am LDS). Prayers DO work; there IS a God, and He loves you dearly, but you must make the effort to seek out medical professionals. Heavenly Father has given them the knowledge and expertise to be able to help you. Please do not waste any more time with getting this checked out.

Looking for a buddy to give/receive encouragement.
Hi! I have about 100 to lose as well! I need someone to keep me motivated, as I have a husband who shows his love by bringing me chocolate and cooking with cheese. :P

Getting started...again
Hi everyone, I'm feeling a bit bummed out, but also really motivated. I've gained about 50 pounds since I got married in December... which was sort of okay when I thought I was pregnant. I'm not. I'm just fat. My husband doesn't notice; he thinks I'm beautiful no matter what, but I need the man to stop buying me chocolate every time I get depressed or have a headache! I want both of us to be healthy, so I've asked him to start on here. We'll see if he takes me up on it. He had a friend who's wife left him after she lost a bunch of weight, and he's asked me before if I would ever do that, which really ticked me off. I don't think he's trying to keep me chubby intentionally, I think it's just that he can't stand to see me upset, and chocolate is such a great mood lifter. I could really use some encouragement about what I'm trying to do here... Thanks, Kate

Hey, y'all!
My name is Kate, and I am LDS (Mormon). My honey and I are getting married in December, so I want to look fabulous in my dress... but we are also planning on starting a family pretty soon after we are married. I am predisposed to preeclampsia, so my real motive for being here is to get my BMI and BP down to (hopefully) avoid complications. I'm tired of being tired, tired of being chubby, tired of my heart hurting, and I want to be around for a long time for my family. I have dieted with some success in the past, but I am an emotional and social eater, and I love to bake (it's how we show love in my family). I could really use some encouragement! Thanks and Blessings, Kate

This actually makes sense...
So, it is 10AM, and I am at 8% of my RDI. It's beginning to make sense to me why the weight isn't coming off. I eat next to nothing for breakfast, a cup of yogurt for lunch, and maybe a sandwich... and dinner is late, usually around 9 or 10. In short, I am starving myself, and when I do overeat (usually at dinnertime), it is turned into fat because I don't do anything to burn it off. ...shoot, y'all.

Opinion on Evox Lean Pro Diet Meal Shake and Herbalife formula 1
12.3g of Carbs is anything but high, especially in a meal replacement. If you are worried about carbs in an MRP, skip them completely and get yourself 100% Whey. It will average 3-5g of Carbs per serving. ...
