What's the most you've put on after a month of letting yourself go?
Ha! Thanks all for your responses. Well, yeah, I think I could gain 2kgs in a week as well, super easily with a few days of "letting go." The reason I asked the question is because I'm preparing myself to go home for the holidays - and I'll be home with family and friends for 3 weeks. I dread the weight I might put on after finally reaching my goal weight. And there's no such thing as "eating healthy" at home, over the Christmas holidays.

cravings
Whenever I get a craving, I'll start putting in whatever it is I'm craving into the fatsecret calorie calculator - they usually scare me enough for the cravings to go away. Then I count my nuts (10 almonds = 70 cals), have just that and a huge glass of water, and I sometimes throw in a square of dark choc. It works, well, most of the time at least.

We often talk about how many pounds or kgs we can lose in a month, in a year, etc, but I'm sure most of us have at some point in our diets, fall off the wagon, or rather let ourselves go for some short periods of time, before starting over again. Could you share what was the most amount of weight you have put on say in a month, when this happened? I'm sure this would also serve as a motivation and show how easy it is to put on, and how hard it is to lose it back.

Does Wine Help With Weight Loss?
Well, I think Red Wine would be the better option as opposed to beer or any cocktails. I have a glass of red wine every other night and still managed to lose quite a bit of weight. However, a glass of red wine is about 120 cals. If that fits within your RDI for the day, then why not? But if you don't like the taste, don't bother torturing yourself - it is not a weight loss concoction :)

SUCCESS STORIES
I was 70kgs (154 lbs) in May 2013 and at 5ft (fullstop), that's a lot of weight. What worked for me? 1) Calorie counting - I set my RDI at 500 cals below my required RDI. (for my weight and height, my body only required 1300 cals to sustain itself, so I set my RDI at 800 cals a day). 2) Cut out all processed food and carbs (no rice/ oats/ pasta/ sugar/ calorific drinks/ the works). 3) My meals mostly involve salad, brocolli, eggplants, leafy greens, chicken breast, salmon, shrimp, almonds, walnuts, tofu and lots of seasoning. 4) I started preparing my own meals - bake my own chicken and salmon. 5) Discovered soups 6) Got conscious about sodium intake (though not very calculative about it) 7) Not an exercise person, but I made a conscious effort to walk more and walk whenever possible. 8 ) tons and tons of water (OK, at least 2 - 3 litres a day). 9) Reduced alcohol intake 10) Educated myself on nutrients That said, I have, in this 1.5 years fluctuated quite a bit, and I'm sure if I had stuck to the above religiously, the weight would have came off way sooner, but I think giving myself leeway ever so often did not make it feel like a diet at all, and more of a lifestyle.

Logging everything everyday, or not?
I have gone on and off logging entries as well, and I find logging in food definitely works better on the weight loss, at least it keeps me counting my nuts (literally! 10 almonds = 70 calories), also it keeps me accountable as to how much more I can eat for the day and still be within my RDI. Whenever I stop logging in food, the weight comes back on. Also, I find, with the system, when I can't find something, I will break down the ingredients in it and log them individually - that helps, unless of course you're eating overly processed foods.

Where is everyone from?
Ah, nice thread! Always wondered where everyone's from. I live in Hong Kong and do most shopping at fancy supermarkets as everything in the local markets are 'made in China.'

Lack of love
Dear FatNHappy - I think what you're going through is a real problem, and it happens everywhere. My mom and the rest of my family had relentlessly made negative comments about my weight too - for all my life. And yes, that led me to binge more, because I just got upset, and food was my comfort. But things changed after I started making healthy choices about my food. I spoke to her about nutrients, and she learnt through me. She didn't need to lose weight, but everyone needs nutrient-education. And when the pounds started melting, my mom was and still is my biggest champion and supporter. Perhaps if you start doing the same, with your mom living in the same town, you guys could spark off a new relationship and have more in common. I'm not sure how old you are, but the older you get, the easier your relationship with your mom gets - just from my experience.

Counting Carbs or Calories? What works for you?
Counting calaries worked for me, and still working - but that said, I'm particular about what kind of carbs I consume. Like beans and legumes for example, are carb filled, so I make sure they are measured before I eat them. Carbs from veg doesnt really matter at all - eat all you want. Its the carbs from the white stuff that you need to avoid - bread, rice, pasta, etc. And of course - the sweets. And in drinks - Like a can of beer is just empty carbs - such a waste of a calories.

Battle of the Tummy Bulge
Thank you all for your response. Saige - I know! I have no breasts left too. Pretty depressing! Ass is still there though - but no complaining. What was once a huge fold is now a few smaller folds on my tummy. And that back bulge - hate it! Wholefoodnut - at 5ft 0inc - 116 pounds is not exactly small. But almost there. I've dropped 3 dress sizes since I started. I'm gonna give dancing a go and some running. I don't think I'm up for any crunches just yet.

Battle of the Tummy Bulge
Hey Saige - I know what you mean. I don't really plan on being stick thin or anything, but looks like the tummy will melt away only with the other parts dissapearing. If all all else fails, there's always a corsette ;)

What's in a name?
Well, when I signed up for FS, I was overweight and was addicted to binging and at the time I created an account, I was binging on biscuits dipped in coffee. Sigh!

Battle of the Tummy Bulge
Fantastic advice everyone. I have a question about fruits and carbs. I have this fear of eating fruits as it increses my carb intake tremendously - should I stay away from fruits as well?

Battle of the Tummy Bulge
Thanks Mummydee! I will start with some running/ jogging and light home exercises before moving to weights training I think. It will be a slow and painful process, but I suppose I'll get there eventually. Those flabby arms need to go too...
