Day 1 of the rest of my life!
Welcome! It sounds like you're off to a great start. Making small healthy changes, even one per week, will probably be more sustainable in the long run. Once you kick the soda/sugar, hopefully you can focus on making sure you get enough healthy, macro-balanced calories into your daily diet to help sustain slow, stable fat loss. Good luck to you!

Subway Salads
Their tuna salad has high calorie/fat content due to the mayonnaise. However, if it fits into your calorie/nutritional goal for the day then go for it. If not, switch to the chopped turkey or chicken breast.

LOSE vs. LOOSE
Ha ha! I may have wanted to have him for dinner, too, but then I heard that recording of the awful phone message to his daughter and decided against it.

[quote=mummydee]I have an iphone that has talk n text.. what a hoot, changes so much on me, I don't correct it, it's more fun that way. [/quote] mummydee, I also have the iPhone talk n text. Once I was asking my husband if he wanted to go to such-and-such restaurant for dinner and my phone translated to "We're having Alec Baldwin for dinner." :lol:

Ticker bar not moving :(
It hasn't worked properly for over a year. It's a shame the admins can't figure this one out. It's such an easy fix, but they obviously don't care enough to fix it.

I did well today!!!!
Correction: not "Resisting", but CHOOSING not to eat it. Big difference: "resisting" sounds like you're white knuckling through the situation, but making a choice gives you power and accomplishment.

Wow, good for you, Princess! Isn't it a great feeling when everyone around you is eating useless junk food and you are resisting? Nice job!

Hello
Welcome, Skinnymax! I agree with the name. I've been a member several years and whenever I tell people about how I'm losing weight, I always start with "well, the name is dumb but the app and the community is fantastic!". Ha ha! I'm also a mom of two. I started at 270 and lost 50 pounds in 2013. I have been struggling this year and gained a little bit back, but I keep trying. I know I will continue down this path to good health and I will succeed. Feel free to add me as a buddy if you wish.

It sounds like you have a lot of great advice and you admit that it's you that needs to change and get in the right mindset. What helped me achieve weight loss success finally after many, many years, was changing my focus from LOSING weight to GAINING health. I focused on what I should and could eat to get healthier, not what I couldn't eat and therefore feeling deprived. I also focused on how moving my body even a little bit almost every day made me feel better, have more energy and sleep better. Having a positive focus rather than a negative one (I HAVE to do this, I NEED to lose weight, etc.) is making the journey so much more enjoyable and attainable as a lifestyle. And I agree, baby steps are the way to go. Good luck to you! You can do it.

What is your favourite/most used food for weight loss?
I also love 0% Fage Greek yogurt. I have it for breakfast or dessert with blueberries, nuts and sometimes a swirl of real maple syrup or a little brown sugar. If I really want something decadent and I'm craving chocolate, I'll mix in 1 Tbsp of Nutella into 1/2 cup Greek yogurt. It's the best faux chocolate hazlenut mousse. I also LOVE avocados, and their healthy fats, fiber and potassium are so good for you. I put chopped avocados on eggs in the morning, in wraps and salads for lunch, in guacamole, etc. It is ALWAYS worth it for me to include 1/2 an avocado in my daily calorie limit. Maybe not every day, but several times a week at least.

going bonkers
This is normal. Your body weight fluctuates throughout the day every day based on your water intake, food intake, bathroom habits, clothes, weather, etc. If you weigh daily, these small fluctuations will drive you crazy. I suggest weighing just once a week, on the same day, and at the same time...like first thing in the morning after you use the bathroom but before breakfast. That will give you the most consistent, true measurement of your body weight change over time. Good luck to you!

Dinner
I have two kids and a husband and a crazy family schedule. Sometimes we eat together and often we don't. I find that cooking batches of things on Sundays to use throughout the week helps. I'll bake or grill extra chicken, fish, beef (roast, steak or ground), and possibly make extra rice, pasta, etc. or pre-bake some russet or sweet potatoes. I also might cut up some extra veggies (onions, peppers, carrots, zucchini, etc.). Then on a busy weeknight all I have to do is reheat the meat and a starch (if needed/wanted), and pan sautee some quick veggies or microwave steam some broccoli and we're good to go. (I also use "cheater" lower calorie sauces for toppings on the meat and veggies, such as flavored hummus, salsa, etc. to add different flavors. Or add the pre-cooked chicken with some of the veggies with some romaine lettuce or spinach into a salad. The key is being prepared and having several options ready to go so you're not tempted to go out, or order in for pizza or something not as healthy. Good luck! A small suggestion: I wouldn't be too fixated on the six month duration. Small changes over time will yield results, but 5 pounds per month is a lot if you don't have a whole lot to lose. You may see 5 lbs. per month for the first few months, but it might not be consistently that high. As long as you're creating healthy habits and moving in the right direction, you're doing great!

Broke my plateau
Way to go, CCerza!!! I want to follow in your footsteps. I've been in a bit of a plateau for the past 6 months. I've lost 52 lbs. since Dec 2012, so our progress is similar. Slow and steady weight loss is ideal so you're doing great. We'll get there!

accurate excercise logging/calorie burning tool please
Lisa, I got a BodyMedia Band for Christmas and I was surprised how accurate FatSecret is in comparison. Maybe not all calorie counts for activities align on both platforms, but FS is pretty close in activity estimation.
