Teralester...[b]For quick belly weight loss... [/b]The topic was belly fat and your response referred to belly fat. Thus my response.

belly fat
Sorry... I don't and won't believe you can target the fat. My arse would be gone as would my pouch and a tad over the hips. But 15lb. belly fat. That's a lot and I really have to ask how big the person was. I was 246 and can say I don't have that much to lose on my gut. Please kiddies, don't be taken in by the mumbo jumbo promises.

belly fat
I personally have come to terms with my Pouch. Not too awful bad and much much smaller then when I was 246. A tight pair of jeans works wonders. There are things I can live with and this is one of them.

Second month, only 1 lb lost
Okay... you need to get serious about what you eat. I looked at your diary and there's no way you're going to lose weight eating Alfredo. Even if you only eat twice daily, it's all about eating healthy. Cut back on the carbs too. There are many diets you can find on this site. Give them a look. Get off the processed and junk food. Like the rest of us, that's what put us here. You can do this. Take the time to look.

How do you prevent loose skin?
Thanks for also responding to this again. People, listen to us. If it's been stretched and you have stretch marks, it WILL NOT GO AWAY. Even if you don't have stretch marks. Please note Glaun said firming your "body", not skin. No matter how hard you pray, massage, take vitamins and use whatever miracle cure is being touted on tv. If you're blessed with good skin, lucky you. But if like me, a former sunbather, obese for over 20 years and old, surgery is your only answer.

Found you on the internet
Ditto to Glaun with an added. It took a long time to gain, it will take time to get rid of it and don't get disappointed if it doesn't happen overnight. It won't. Promise.

Try this its worked for me
If I lost a lb. a day I'd be terrified I was terminal.

And a little nip and tuck if you like.

How do you prevent loose skin?
What Glaun said. Been there done that. There is no miracle cream, brushes, vitamins, etc. Think stretched rubber band.

Tasty frozen dessert bites
Of course the peach donuts appealed to me. Waiting for the peaches to ripen and will make them. Thanks for sharing Mummy.

If Jennifer Lopez can lose 20 pounds, so can we
Lopez situation makes losing simple when you've got the support as eKatherine states. For us, it's truly the desire to push ourselves, depend on our personal support system and have the drive to do it without all the bells and whistles. It's more a challenge for us, therefore, we can be proud of what we've accomplished.

Let's hear from those who've succeeded!
Maunik... you're making this an even better site. Excellent questions and the different responses will be cool. Not my intention to really lose, but couldn't fit my ass into my walker after a total knee replacement, then really looked at myself naked in the mirror. Began walking months prior to that and lost a little, then physical therapy on the recumbent bike after the knee surgery and cut back on food. Started losing. Even getting to 220 was a treat then I saw I could take it further. Prior to that, 3 back surgeries and looking at a 4th. Ortho said to keep losing and strengthening the core/abs and it would further delay surgery. I did it because I could. Failed miserably over the years and quit trying. Thus 246lbs. This time, something clicked. My head was in the right place. During this journey, I never gave up. Frustration, of course. Changing eating plans and trying every diet in the book. Eating off plan, absolutely. Good grief, I'm human and if I was perfect I wouldn't be on this site. But I always jumped back on the wagon, never looking back at what I didn't do or what I could have done and lost more weight. It's been over 30 months to lose 82lbs. A long time compared to most. Advice... be gentle toward yourself. Don't obsess over the food, exercise or losing. Don't set yourself up for failure by setting up unrealistic goals. It will happen in it's own time. Find variety in food and exercise to keep it interesting. My goal wasn't to lose 80 lbs. It was to see if I could lose. And to get healthy. It all came together. If you blow it, s##t happens. Don't give up. I now like how I feel and look. Off almost all meds. Got the ultimate compliment from my great nephew today that made me come home and really look at myself and can honestly say I liked what I saw and decided I'm ready for maintenance though 4lbs. shy of my goal. Self-confidence is back. No longer the "chubbiest" one of the family. 3rd thinnest.:d And the list goes on.

Abs Diet anyone?
Someone once commented that I did a lot of ab/core exercises. This is the reason. An ortho doc told me that if I continued losing (185 at the time) and did strength training, it would put off the surgery indefinitely. Chiro also assists with my adjustments. I became obsessed with losing and strength training. And wish I knew then what I know now. I never would have had any surgeries with the exception of the 3rd one where the T9 collapsed and had to have a kyphoplasty. That was as a result of the fall which caused the back damage.

Abs Diet anyone?
I do a tremendous amount of core/ab strength training. I've had 3 back surgeries and am trying to avoid a 4th by strengthening the muscles in my abs and back. So I do firmly believe that the workouts I've been doing for the past 18 months is helping and though there may not be the "six pack", I've got muscles. I will be doing a bod pod in the next couple of months and will get my percentage of muscles compared to this time last year. Too fat for too long and skin sags. My bikini days are long over.

Abs Diet anyone?
I think most of us are saying you can't focus on your abs alone for reduction and you have to eat healthy no matter what. If the diet looks good to you, try it and see if you can stick with it. Do the exercises. It can't hurt. And like Drag said... we've probably all got a six pack. Somewhere in there. With all the core exercises I do, I know I've got a six.

Abs Diet anyone?
And that's the problem. Getting rid of the fat. Particularly if you were obese like me for many years. I am not happy with the fat roll in the gut, (I can pull it in) but then, no one usually is. And I truly doubt I'll get rid of it as I will never get thin enough as my goal is 158, which I think is good for me.

Books that changed your life!
There are books I've read over the years and know if I were to re-read them again, the message would change to fit my current life.

OMG... I read that book years ago. Dealing with change. A group of us in alanon read it and passed it to each other. It went around the world. We all signed it and gave a comment. Thanks for the reminder.

***You'll never think about doing something for the sole purpose of impressing others again. *** Going to check out Rhapsody to see if they have it. Would love to hear it or read it, but will wait until there is more sunshine in my life.

Anyone meticulously logging their food with a steady weight loss.
There are a variety of weight loss plans out there you can check out. I think FS lists many of them and there are support groups for them. Vickie said she didn't have a goal. Neither did I when I began. I had no thoughts of losing 82 lbs. I thought, boy if I can get down to 225, I'd be happy. But once it started and the clothes started getting baggier and I felt better physically and mentally, I just kept going. I do now have a goal which is 158. Odd #, but I want to have a 2 lb. leeway in the event the old body decides to hold onto something. Maybe that's why it's worked for me. I really didn't consider this a diet. Just working out and learning to eat healthy. Look at many of the folks weight charts. It can be done, but you have to give it your all.

New book all the way. The "new" atkins seems much more healthy to me than the old one.

KCal ... Total Cal ... and workout Cal
The nutritional Calorie is 1000 standard calories. A kcal is a kilocalorie which is 1000 calories. So a nutritional Calorie is the same as a kcal.
