Not a diet
Very true. That is for sure the reason I have failed so many times. Currently, my portion sizes are about a third of what they were. I need to stay like that.

watermelon diet
Phil is right. Learn to make better choices. Count your calories. Eat healthy and exercise.

What do people do who have chronic issues with pain
Water aerobics has been a great option for me with my back issues. Walking is also good. Your MD should be able to suggest things that are appropriate for your condition. If not, have him prescribe a few visits to a PT and they should be able to help.

Instant Pot or pressure cookers
I've recently been introduced to the Instant pot. (Not the smoking kind...lol.) It is a modern pressure cooker and can I just tell you I love the results!!! I've only cooked with it 3 times but the results have been fantastic and OH SO HEALTHY!!!! From what I gather, the nutrients aren't destroyed using this process and it is so much better for you than frying, obviously. I made the juiciest chicken breasts last night in 8 minutes! The prep time added was another 12 -15 but they were scrumptious. Can the rest of you Pressure Cookers add your two cents and maybe even recommend your favorite recipes?

Being Sick
Try to get the fluid and protein in that you need to recover and then get back on track. I hope you feel better.

Too much flavor???
I have been dieting for about 5 weeks now and really watching every single thing I eat. I've stopped drinking diet soda and coffee. (That almost killed me!) I've stopped eating desserts and completely ditched all Christmas treats at our house. Well, I guess what I just noticed is that I feel like flavors are starting to change now. I had a bite of a peanut butter ball and it was too sweet. So I stopped. Yesterday I thought I would have kiwi. Too tart. A few minutes ago I thought I would have a diet Pepsi. It was awful. Two sips and done. Has anyone else had this reaction after eating healthy for a while? It seems my taste buds have reprogrammed. I don't remember this happening before but it sure makes it easier to avoid this stuff so I guess it really is a blessing.

Subscribe To WeBMd Or Forget The Whole Exercise!
Here's the thing. There is more than one way to skin a cat. Not everyone is going to go to WebMD and that's ok. People diet in different ways for different reasons. Let's be encouraging and respectful to those that choose another path. Blessings to you in the new year my friend and much continued success to you on your weight loss/ healthy journey.

I need help finding my motivation again :(
I find that having an accountability partner really helps me. My best friend and I do little competitions sometimes since we both have FitBits. If she wins, I owe her fabric or some other treat- usually related to quilting and not eating! Don't do it all alone. Not fun and not easy. Don't give up!

struggling
Don't look at the total weight you have to lose. Try to break it down in attainable goals. Start with a goal of 10#, then create a new goal. Then add in exercise. I will walk for 20 minutes 3 days per week. Then increase that goal. Small steps with goals you can reach help to make you more successful and increase your confidence. Good luck!

Effective portion control trick
Its sort of negative reinforcement but it did the trick! I am going to do this every time we go somewhere good to eat. It'll keep me in line in a hurry!

Effective portion control trick
So tonight when we went out for supper, I decided to wear a pair of pants that were probably a size too small for me to be comfortable in. Those stinking things were so tight I could hardly eat!!! Imagine how overjoyed I was at this self-limiting, self-induced, calorie control trick. Worked well in curbing my calorie intake. Also made it difficult to take a deep breath but that's an entirely different issue! Its my magic jelly bean of the day.

HIT A MILESTONE FOR ME
FANTASTIC! Love to hear about those success stories!

Boredom
There are so many fun low carb recipes. Maybe Google them or go to the library and get a low carb cookbook. I love making low carb lasagna with cauliflower as the pasta. Another favorite is low carb pizza and I use the portabella mushrooms instead of pizza crust. The portabellaas also work well for "sandwiches." Try thinking outside the box a little bit. I know you can do it. Alittle creativity will help you get out of the rut! Best of luck!

losing my motivation
If what you are doing isn't working, re-evaluate and do something different. Being fat isn't fun. I always keep that at the back of my mind. I have a list of goals- more than 20 and reasons why I want to lose weight. Is there a list of reasons why you want to be overweight? Nooooo?!?!? Then just keep working at it. No one EVER said this would be easy but you CANNOT give up. Switch out your exercise routine or change your diet around. Try new recipes. The possibilities are endless. DO NOT QUIT! It didn't go on overnight. Its not coming off overnight. You talk about "giving things up." Those "things" are killing you!!! KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE! People here will support you as much as possible but you must THINK POSITIVE. If you can give me one good reason why you should stop dieting now and give up, I'll stop my rant..... waiting.... waiting.... waiting.... See you have no good reason. Take a deep breath. Regroup. Put your nose back to the grindstone. There's your pep talk for today. You CAN do it. ;)
