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.'

Before and After, anyone?
OMG! That is fantastic. You guys are such an inspiration. Well done!

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...

Hhhhm, that means I have to get a gym membership, doesn't it?

Battle of the Tummy Bulge
Hey bluekorben, thanks for that. Nah, it took me a year plus to lose that 15kgs - with a bit of stagnation and yo-yo-ing in between. I am with you on the food intake - that I've mastered, and when i "fall" - it's knowing full well what I'm getting myself into. It's the exercising that's my problem. I need to move, and also, you're right - I have no idea if I have lost fat or muscle. Would cardio work, instead of weights?

Eventually is a long time... but Good Luck to you too! :)

Why am I not losing weight?
Hi, I totally understand the frustration - been there, done that, sometimes I get back there. It took me a while to get off beers - I switched to having a glass of wine instead (much lesser calories, and lighter on the body). Similarly, when I have grains (bread/ pasta/ even oatmeal), although within the calorie limit, I tend to be heavier the next day, as opposed to when I just have say, a chicken salad. Also, with junking, I could have a bar of chocolate which has the same amount of calories with lets say a handful of almonds, and the scale would show a higher figure after the chocolate. I agree with mummydee wholeheartedly on the choice of food intake, and not solely relying on CICO. Just my two cents.

Battle of the Tummy Bulge
Hi all, I have succeeded in losing almost 15kgs (33 lbs), which is fantastic, but it seems like the tummy bulge still is my biggest problem in life. Does anyone have any ideas, experience, plans, ways to get rid of it? Does the tummy ever get flat/ flatter? I'm desperate!

Starting a new life
This is a great website if you're looking to start a healthy new lifestyle. I started on this more that a year ago and it has helped me tremendously. I have lost almost 15kgs since just by eating nutritious food, and it never felt like a diet at all - and everything I know and learnt, it was from these forums - everyone's invaluable input, sharing, experiences, suggestions, and of course the calorie counter. Welcome on board, and good luck!

Fat-Flush detox
Hi, thanks for that. I just ended up making a pitcher of water with lemons, cucumber, mint leaves and oranges and sipped on it all day for two days. Well, even though it may not have done anything spectacular, it wasn't too bad drinking it. It was very refreshing.

Fat-Flush detox
Hi, Has anyone tried a 3-day fat-flush detox with wholly natural stuff, that doesn't include juicing? It's mainly to clear toxins from your body. I know there are plenty online, but I was just wondering if any of you have tried something before, and it would be great if you could share your experiences and your plan. Cheers!
