I'm kinda looking for a buddy or two - people who are very serious about their diet. I started at 331 on June 20 and I've lost 34 pounds. I'm doing 1000 cal/day high in lean proteins and veggies, with some fruit. I document everything I eat and I stick to my diet with an occasional small splurge - very rare....

Who's in?

Keep in mind, I started at 331 on June 20 and I've lost 34 pounds. So I'm in this for the long haul and dead serious about getting the weight off. Not only that, but I'm sure I can do this.

I wanna lose 25 lbs, don't know how the calorie counting works. I have a hard time updating fatsecret. 5 lbs in a week in amazing, I'd love to do that. Any tips?

I AM looking for a couple of buddies to share progress and ideas with. I wish you all could see my food log.

Here's today so far...

total calories: 539

Breakfast
5 1/2 oz broiled talipia
8 oz spinach and assorted veggies salas with spices and vinegar

Lunch
7 1/2 oz broiled talipia
5 oz cut up Gala apple with the skin
7 oz brussel sprouts

What I've just listed is exactly what I ate.
NO BREAD
NO SALAD DRESSING
NO BUTTER OR SAUCES


So.............who's serious and wants to buddy up.
I don't feel deprived or hungry, btw.

Sure I'd like to dive into candy cake and donuts, but I want the weight off more.

Jipper, that's high protein. I had a banana peanut butter shake that just shot my fat consumption through the roof.

OMG

Bananas NO
Peanut butter??? Oh HELL NO.

Peanut butter is just about the most fattening thing you can eat.

High protein, YES. Protein keeps you satisfied and you won't get hungry and crave between meals.

Best snack?
Dill pickles - zero calories.

Hi Jipper, I'd like to be your buddy too. I am just counting calories. Weight wise I am pretty much in your league, but just starting today, so we can be in it together for a whileSmile Though your goal is way below mine--160. And when I get there I'll rethink if it where I want to stop.

Don't be amazed by my 5 pounds. I just came off my cycle so it's probably more like three pounds if you take that into consideration.

I lost weight counting calories about 20 years ago. 1200 a day. And I walked A LOT. I'm doing WW so it may be slower, but we'll see. Smile
