Looking for advice
Not only does the pace of weight loss slow down, but your body will work harder to hold on to your fat stores the leaner you become. We are left with a sobering fact – the ability to lose more fat decreases and it becomes even harder to do so. The most common plateaus I see for guys is first around 20-22% body fat, then around 12% body fat (for those guys looking to break into single digits). This is a quote from builtlean.com as wellas the other reasons you already know. Mayo Clinic says you may be at a good weight for yourself. But if you are determined to lose more, re-examine your caloies in and calories out. That would be the sabotage you mentioned. Maybe a few days of less strict eating would be good so you recharge your batteries to go at it again good luck You know what you are doing

Phentermine / Duromine : Discuss ???
again there is a right way to do things and a wrong way. If you choose the wrong way you are taking risks. I have used phentremine. It really doesn't help that mcuh. I have tried using it intermittly to reduce the risk. I found out that if I was in the "zone" I didn't need phentremine as a cruch. If I was not in the 'zone" phentremine didnn't keep me from eating. It is the same old thing with all meds----do the risks outweigh the benefits. Know the risks and stay in touch with your Dr.

As simple as cutting calories
so glad I read these posts There is a right way to do things and a wrong way. The wrong way is tempting because it is fast-----but look what you are actually doing to yourself.

I need advice PLEASE (Longish read but please help!!!)
The onlly suggestion I would have is to count the calories of everything you are eating. Also it sounds like you have elemiinated simple carbs. It is a very healthy life style.

new diet?
wow, I have heard that people who eat at least 600 calories for breakfast eat less the rest of the day. I think I will try it. I am sure if the first meal is high protein and moderate fat you will be full a long time. Then spread the rest of the calories for the rest of the day----your calories are the same,you just ate them when you are more active. Thanks-----I really do believe I can never go back to my old way of eating------and not exercising

How often do I weigh myself
daily you are right. At first I was losing a pound a day but now it is going off in ounces! I do get discouraged, but if I don't weigh, I wont be honest with myself about what I am eating or weighing and start to gain. Wish it fell off faster, but it just doesn't. It will be a long road and I will probably never get to the end of it.

I really love what you are saying---others are struggeling too.I need to see that. ----- and stop feeling as if I being treated unfairly. And it is good if you have an exercise buddy. I walk with a friend and boy does he push me. I am slow and with the weight it isn't easy. The other day I exercised with a friend-a trainer that had me do intervals----It was wonderful and very hard at the same time. She set the timer and then I walked as hard and fast as I could for 20 sec, then slowed down for 10 sec then started again. We did that cycle 7 times then lifted weights (my body weight--that is heavy enough) squats, and push ups against the wall etc. I found that I can do more than I think I can. I have a bad knee so I have to baby it. and you say you have breathing problems. You have a lot of courage to take care of yourself and not give up. I used my illnesses as a excuse not to exercise and ate too much and this is where it got me! I refused to keep a record of my food . I hated it, I have done it for years and refused to do it now. Well at the end of my rope, I started and I cant believe how much I was eating. No wonder I gained. So now I am willingly tracking and it sure does help. It is also good to have this as a support. I have never done this before. I wouldn't talk to anyone because it was admitting that I am fat, as if no one would notice! a trampoline would be fun. and I shold get out my bike too

It hasnt been too bad. I make sure I am eating a lot of protein and staying away from simple carbs---fruit even falls into this catigory. So I dont have fruit at night. I try everything from protein drinks to meat, chix, fish etc. I am amazed that I am losing. I think I am down 10 lbs now. I went to a party lastnight where everyone was eating and I wasnt tempted. I just watched them eat tons of calories and wondered why they arent heavy (oh well) I did stay away from alcohol and had club soda with lime.

I have tried to lose weight on my own and kept gaining. Finally I went to a beriatric clinic for help with out surgery. I was told to keep my calories to 1200 and exercise every day with a pulse rate of 120. Drink lots of water. Dieting is mostly mental, you have to be ready. I find I need to be accountable to someone. I am supposed to avoid complex carbs.If I indulge, then burn them off. They go straight to fat if not burned off. I should eat protein at every meal with fruit and vegetables. Evening meal should ge meat and veg---low carb type. Carbs in the day meat at night. I started early march. and I weighed 190 on my scales (more on his) I have been at it now for 3 weeks and I am down 6 lbs. I don't feel secure in my diet yet. It feels strange. I hope in time it will feel normal to me and I wont feel so scared. I know that sounds wierd, but I have dieted all my life and know how easy it is to slide into old habits and that will just get me back where I was.

Insanity?
Congratulations! I just joined the program. I hope I have as much success as you are having. I weigh more than I ever have (185lbs) and at my age (65) it is difficult to lose. However, with stories like yours, I am motivated. Thanks for sharing.
