Good Fats Vers Bad Fats
as far as I know, bad fats are trans and anything hydrogenated; I love cheese and am glad that I have some willpower, otherwise I'd be eating it all the time. Personally I do not consider cheese and milk bad fats. These are from natural products...just my opinion :)

Q & A
ok, last comment on my question...it was a little bit of a trick question in that had I asked "what weighs more a pound of muscle or a pound of fat" everyone would have thought I was nuts. In any case, it was supposed to be just a little fun excercise.
by christina56 (submitted 2 years ago)
Q & A
apparently not; a message came up saying that it's gone to "moderation" or something to that effect; I've never seen that message before but then I have never quoted anyone before and never did the "copy/paste" either; not sure...

Q & A
if my original answer does get posted, it addresses the issue of volume

Q & A
thanks everyone for answering...seems that my original answer has gone for a review...perhaps because I quoted someone...hopefully everyone will get to read the explanation to my question...in the meantime though just know that it doesn't matter...a pound is a pound is pound. A pound of feathers = a pound of lead and so on...

Q & A
Thanks to everyone who answered. Here is a great explanation from WeightWatchers.ca Muscle does not weigh more than fat, any more than lead weighs more than feathers. A pound is a pound is a pound. Where the misunderstanding often comes in is that muscle is much more dense than fat, so that, by volume, it seems to weigh more. That is, a pound of muscle occupies less space than a pound of fat. In addition, because a pound of muscle burns more fat than a pound of fat, even at rest, by increasing your lean muscle tissue mass, you're helping your body burn more calories.

How far have you come?
jimmie65 and GThorp - it's wonderful to see that both of you have made such great changes. It's interesting when one catches the "activity bug." The first time I had joined the gym, I went because I had the membership; this time around it's different - I go because I want to go and feel guilty when I have to skip a night for whatever reason. Whenever hubby and I go anywhere on vacation it still is to see things but we do an incredible amount of walking. We usually park the car at the hotel and leave it parked. Great job everyone.

How far have you come?
yes Ingria, my story is similar...my most stressful year (2005) saw me going up to my highest weight...it is amazing what stress can do. It certainly looks to me like you have things under control now. Best of luck with the next 14lbs.

Weight loss on your hands!!!
I'm noticing it on my rings as well; I've been thinking about rings guards also.

How far have you come?
WOW!!! All of you have done super well...Congratulations!!! @Bodicea - isn't it great when all of a sudden you can wear things that were hiding at the back of the closet...keep up the great job. Mike - I totally agree with the healthy eating and proper nutrients...it may take longer that way, but I think it's better. @fatoldlady...here's hoping that you will be able to postpone that surgery like...forever!!! and Natalie...thanks for your words of encouragement...I do eat good food; go to the gym constantly and actually if I may backtrack just a little bit here - from my heaviest weight I have now lost 21 lbs. It's just the last year was only 3.1 and I looked back to 2010 and between Feb. of 2010 and Feb. of 2011 I lost 3.9lbs. So at this rate it will be 5yrs before I get to my goal weight...LOL something to look forward to...again congrats to everyone and keep up the good work...

How far have you come?
I looked back and since last February I have managed to lose a mere 3.1 lbs...very,very sad. Look back to see how much you've lost and how far you've come...maybe not just in weight lost but also in terms of how you're feeling about yourself now. Even though I have lost next to nothing, I am feeling better, my clothes fit better (inches lost) and I am stronger. What about you?

All My Diet Tips in One Place
[i]"Don’t torture yourself to lose weight. Losing weight can be a good experience instead of a stressful one if you decide it can be"[/i] I think that's the one I like the best. I have been torturing myself because the weight just simply isn't coming off. A lot of the other things I am already doing - eating in moderation, not dieting, not cutting out any particular foods and, of course, [i][b]never giving up[/b][/i]

I love coffee!!!!!
I have to have my one cup in the morning, otherwise I would have a major headache by noon...only a little bit of homogenized milk in it to give it a little colour and all is good (the only reason I buy the homogenized milk; don't buy the 5% or the half & half anymore)...
